Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2013 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.Definitions: Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live football game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

  • Kelly

    HORRIBLE for X Factor!

  • WHugoP

    Really good for arrow

  • CBSviewer

    Good CSI didn’t fall :)

  • Simon

    Revolution’s half hours were 1.5 – 1.4 for those who continuously ask for half hours for certain shows.

    Arrow up is always a good thing. A 3rd season is all but assured!

  • Janus

    Revolution is becoming steady as a rock–it’s found its loyal audience. If it keeps up season 3 looks like a solid possibility.

  • Al

    Good for revolution always steady even against huge competition
    Should be renewed but move to 10

  • Mike

    My predictions were Spot on!
    Except about The tomorrow people

  • zth

    Arrow rose nicely.

    And some people were predicting like a 2.3 – 2.5 for XFactor. #fail.

  • Scott

    Am I reading that X Factor number correctly? So low! I really dislike X Factor anyway

    Still, FOX will give X Factor a fourth season. One night a week like ‘SYTYCD’ (only two nights close to the finale)

  • Joe

    If FOX doesn’t cancel the X-Factor at the end of this season, that will be one of the stupidest decisions I’ve ever seen a network make.

  • Maya

    Decent night for all networks, none of them were hit by the Awards

  • Dave

    Go ARROW :D

    Come on TTP, fall further so REIGN can get a full season!

  • rgxx

    Wow – that’s low for CSI.

    Great for Arrow !

    Revolution – looks steady against World Series & CMA’s last 2 weeks – maybe up next week with no monster specials?

  • Robsten_Fan

    Go Tomorrow People!!

  • Tom

    Good for Revolution! Up in total viewers and even in the demo.

  • Sarah

    LOL at the X Factor! :) I know it was up against the CMAs, but CBS managed to stay above 2.0 from 8-10. And even Arrow got a 1.0. Fox should really move Bones to Wednesday instead. JMO though.

  • H

    Wow pretty soon there won’t be anyone to even vote for xfactor 4 million is bad for a show that requires people to vote

  • casey

    OMG No rise for the X-Factor!!! Fox better start looking to fill 3 hours of television next season, wonder of this will follow to American Idol.
    Although the CMA’s were huge….little effect on other shows that on average rised compared to last week.
    Happy that Arrow is up from last week, not so good for TTP
