Last night’s Thursday Night Football game (Colts/Titans) was simulcast on the NBC affiliate in Indianapois and the FOX affilliate in Nashville. As a result, the NBC and FOX results may be inflated  and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

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.

  • Dillan

    Could Reign actually see a 2nd season?

    Great for TVD!

  • PHIL

    The CW is third that says a lot about the other networks shows

  • Alejandro

    Congratulations to Reign :) I’m sure the CW must be pleased with this result.

  • al

    yay grey and scandal

    Big scandal fun but don’t know if the upward trend will continue this season has been really meh

  • CBSviewer

    Elementary is so low !

  • k:Alex

    Wow, NBC did even worse, and could get a adjusted down too.
    Horrible night.

  • Vasco Silva

    Wow CW in third at 8PM. TVD top of the week on the CW.

  • René

    Poor Parks and Rec, I can’t believe how many ppl watch that TBBT crap and The Millers.

  • Timmy G

    Good for Reign, not good for TTP; I know they both have full seasons but if Reign continues slightly increasing like this it’ll definitely be renewed over TTP.

  • Tea

    Good number for Grey’s Anatomy

  • CrimTV

    Soon The CW will be 4th in the 9pm hour as well!

  • omabin

    How can NBC and FOX be inflated with those numbers? Jeez, they will look awful after finals!

  • JONNYSBRO

    Oh god so x factors ratings are even lower than that. Simon must be so embarrassed nobody cares lol. Terrible ratings. Nice to see CBS ratings go back up. Crazy ones is stabilizing I almost would live to see two and half and it switch and see what happens. Scandal is so solid great numbers.

  • Chel

    Vampire Diaries is coming for The X Factor next!

  • Sammy01

    If X factor and Glee get adjusted down it would serve fox right!

  • Swiftnissity

    Long May She Reign!

  • Candy

    Really wanted Reign to fall so TTP has a better shot at renewal. Is there any scenario where both shows are renewed, even if Star-Crossed and The 100 rate relatively well? Surely Julie Plec’s got to have some pull there.
