NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.


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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

    what Dracula is awesome yes its low on the action department and vamp stuff but it was just getting into the story first.Next week’s looks more action and vamp stuff (thank god ) as yes it was lacking that.

    I doubt they will cancel it the now as it only 6 episodes to go but a doudt a second season but who knows? hopefullynext week is what people have been missing from the show ..Fingers crossed it adjusted up on Monday

    TV By The Numbers, after the 1st week of “Dracula” said, “Dracula certain to be renewed”. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA DEAD WRONG

    If only that headline/prediction had actually occurred.

    But it didn’t.


    @ BILL

    I sure didn’t recall any post predicting a Dracula renewal —- only viewer predictions

    Thank you Bill for all the work you and others do on this site – it is greatly appreciated!

    I really hope that the year in your username doesn’t refer to the year you were born, Paul. Because if you actually are closing in on 60 years old the fact you comment like a child is even more disturbing.

    Yikes! What happened to Dracula?!? Even on a Friday night, those ratings will lead you closer to the Cancellation Bear….

    If I was NBC…I’d dump it now, because I think they are beginning to bring down “Grimm”s numbers. 2 Horror shows in one night might be too much for some :/

  • rgxx

    Dracula – I called it’s drop…goodbye Drac.

    @K “H50 is drawing the viewers partly to see when Danno and McGarrett finally hook up and become a couple. It’s hardly a secret on this show.”

    If only it t’were on HBO then we might get to see such a thing. No way in hell is CBS ever ever ever going there!

    As for Grimm. I don’t watch the show (did for about half of the first season and then got bored) but it isn’t going anywhere. And not purely because of syndication. It’s numbers are as good as most of NBC’s mid week scripted offerings and for a Friday show that is really, really good. Grimm is sticking around.

    HFO haters. Wow! You change your excuses every darn week. First it was: ‘it will tank’. Then it didn’t tank so it was ‘it will tank when Grimm returns’. Now that hasn’t happened it’s ‘it is only doing the same as CSI NY so it will be cancelled.’ You do know that writing it doesn’t make it so, right?


    @ bluejays

    The 5-0 haters are crazy on this site and they will ALWAYS find lame excuses to support their hatred

    As I’ve said time after time, I will never understand why anyone feels the need to trash any show or wish it to fail — it is quite pathetic

    I won’t trash any show because I respect people’s choices and everyone has different tastes

    I LOVE 5-0 and it is very steady on Friday nights and I hope it’s stays on the air for many more seasons!

    When I heard NBC and Dracula, I knew it wouldn’t work. AMC should have done Dracula.

  • Why Watch

    Can one say that Dracula’s ratings suck? I’ll watch it but just because I’m tired of lame police dramas and hyped up stories on TV newsmagazines.
