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

Definitions:

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.

    Good to see Grimm getting decent ratings. I hope it continues. I really like Bones also and I was glad to see it picking up its ratings after its first low showing. I do think the move to Friday for Bones was not promoted well and that is why it dropped in ratings at first.

    Happy Holidays to all!

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go Bones! But that’s just awful for Raising Hope[less].

    Go LMS! And that’s such a good Friday number for ST.

    Very strong and stable for Grimm, and Dracula may not have a stake through his heart yet.

    In other news, H50 is doing well for Fridays and will return next season.

  • Lisa

    I’m actually feeling optimistic about Dracula! I mean, considering its timeslot, it’s stabilizing and doing alright.

  • cimmer

    Go Dracula, go! I still think Dracula was not what people were expecting but the show can grow on you. Don’t expect to see more of it but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. lol
