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 baseball 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.

    OUAT. :(

  • Mike

    OUAT was great.

  • Glue

    Hope OUAT adjusts up.

  • Dennis

    bahaha OUAT is doing terrible

  • Michael

    Hope OUAT rebounds. Tired of the pan arc.

  • psychic

    The Mentalist is great again. If it continues on this path I can maybe put the pigeon fiasco out of mind.

  • Vasco Silva

    Is ABC trying to kill OUAT?

  • enri

    Love the mentalist…even if it doesn’t start until 10pm here due to football I’ll stay up to watch it.

  • josh

    Once upon a time still top scripted broadcast show of the night thats somethin i guess TWD was also pretty good

  • jupiter3765

    once is at least stable great but not great for the mentalist

  • Wn

    I really like the reboot of The Mentalist., so I’m glad the ratings didn’t drop too much, especially considering the start time.

  • J

    Also The Mentalist aired at 11pm ehehe

  • Matt

    OUAT needs to rebound fast. Maybe with the return to Storybrooke next week it will.

  • Midwestmary

    Didn’t watch TGW yet but am glad to see it is up from last weeks tragic numbers. Hope it holds.

  • DenverDean

    @Vasco How is ABC trying to “kill” OUAT? It was opposite repeat Simpsons, a weak SNF, normal 60M/AR. It’s more of lack of interest in the show since it was down almost 30% from year-ago episode on Thanksgiving Sunday night. The problem isn’t ABC.

  • jupiter3765

    once will probally adjust up though

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go The Mentalist! All the way until midnight! ;-) :-)

    The post-Red John story arc looks to be an interesting fresh start for the show.

  • MARTY

    remember mentalist and goodwife fans big overrun on football so a 1.6 and 1 .5 doesn’t look good

  • CrimTV

    @DenverDean

    ABC already killed the show last season.

  • jupiter3765

    how is it abcs fault that once is declining but stable
