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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    I really hope Almost Human flops big time on Monday’s, it would serve Fox right.

  • Bay

    Another blunder by Fox, take your 2nd highest scripted show and bury it for more crap sci fi, seriously?

  • Michael

    @marcos- Nothing scripted worked for NBC on Fridays before Grimm.

  • HalCapone

    Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones. Dem ratings, dem ratings, dem dry bones ratings.

  • Sheila

    Poof Raising Hope that show is so good! I wish more people were watching it! I haven’t seen the carrie diaries since season one, but I’m glad it’s doing well. I wish Dracula would go back to the numbers it had before. It’s a really good show!! Yay glad Grimm is up!

  • CrimTV


    The Neighbors back below a 1 where it belongs yet again causing ABC not to win the night.

    What? I’m not defending The Neighbors’ 0.9 but even if it was above, ABC would probably still not have won the night. It’s because of Shark Tank’s 15 percent drop from last week.

  • Larry

    NBC, no vampires for you!

  • Bay

    @Sammyo1 I don’t hope for that, I am praying for it.

  • Robin

    @Ed B
    DVR ratings have increased 100% percent for BATB. If your using that argument you are really grasping at straws. Going from a 0.3 to a 0.6 in SEVEN days is really impressive

  • HeadlessHorseman

    While I agree with you about Glee and X Factor, the animation isn’t tanking and SH is a new show that’s a hit. Fox wouldn’t move a new show to Fridays and they wouldn’t move their animated shows that have always been successes.

  • Eliot

    I actually think Carrie will be renewed for next season for Fridays. It’s only down a tenth on its season 1 performance which was roughly 0.4+. 0.3-0.4 is very steady. :)

    Bones: wow! That move backfired. Fox is becoming a shadow of its former self; 2.0 to 1.2 for Bones and 0.7 for Raising Hope. :(

  • Matt M.

    The Carrie Diaries will be renewed for another 13-episode season.

    Good for Last Man Standing, up in viewers. Also good for 20/20! LOL at Shark Tabk, falling double digits yet still the #1 TV show on Friday. What a monster.

    This doesn’t necessarily mean Bones will be cancelled. It could easily into mid 1’s. If it rise into the 1.5 area and around 6 million viewers, it will be renewed. These numbers aren’t terrible.

  • Sammy01

    @Crim TV – What is your point, Fox always do terrible on Friday with scripted shows, why would Bones change that? Yes it is an established show but other established shows like Glee are pulling terrible ratings on a weekday anyway.

    You don’t move 1 of only 2 shows you have pulling 2.0 or more during the week to Fox’s death slot, you throw Glee or the comedies that aren’t working ther and let them die which they are doing on their respective nights anyway.

  • tv2day

    Reviews for unseen shows r always not good. The public will decide if almost human will last. Not some “TV gatekeeper”. They r up against the biggest NFL game of the year Sunday night. Almost human will do much better off dvr

  • EDC


    It’s not just a move to Friday. It’s a random move to Friday in the middle of November, in a week where they already aired an episode (that got a 2.0) on Monday. There’s only 2 or 3 episodes left to air in 2013. It’s a stupid move. They should’ve waited until mid-season and you know, PROMOTED it properly, like they did with the move to Mondays.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Poor Neighbors.

  • David

    Lacklustre but expected for Bones and Raising Hope. Raising Hope’s final season is certainly upon us. The only upside is they’re burning off episodes quicker by delaying the Enlisted premiere. As for Bones, I can only hope Almost Human flops so that Fox have at least 2 steady performers getting at least 2.0 regularly. Otherwise Fox are going to look very weak.

  • Charmed

    Bones can be saved, it’s a 9th season show, people aren’t gonna leave it at this stage in the game. It probably won’t be saved in this timeslot, Fox made a big mistake with this.

  • chloe

    I did not watch LMS yesterday but does anyone think it’s going to adjust up please someone answer.

  • Charmed

    @Ed B TCD does better than everything except TVD online, your argument is invalid.
