Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2014 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

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.

  • John A

    Thats a season high for TCD but i doubt it will hold.

  • Ron

    I wonder what the half hours were for Carrie,Hopefully it stays at a .4

  • Mathew

    The Carrie diaries is not dead yet. But it’s not alive either

  • zap

    Seriously, ABC, do yo think than Killer Women banner will work?

  • Percy

    Go Grimm!!! does anyone know half-hours?

  • John A

    LMS repeats very well.

  • Charmed

    Marc Berman hasn’t updated his site, that’s where I usually get half hours

  • Ron

    Thanks Charmed,that is where i look also.

  • Juan

    I dont watch the Carrie Diaries but I’m happy that it went up and am rooting for it. Also good that Grimm went up. I need to catch up on it. Also great for ABC in reruns

  • taylor

    Hmm the fact that ABC didn’t show a rerun of the neighbors could it be a signed its been cancelled and there just waiting till may to announce it?

  • Five

    Too bad Dracula fell, but at least it was going against difficult competition (Cotton Bowl). Still, seems to have retained its core audience of 0.9, so.

  • chloe

    Lms will do good in syndication

  • Valentin

    YEAH Carrie!!
    I know it’s nothing but still happy :)
    Say what about Supernatural repeat doing better than Nikita?

  • Nick

    Yes! TCD above 1mil and a 0.4. I didn’t care for last nights episode too much, I think it’s a lot better when Carrie is in the city. Half hours?

  • John A

    Great for Dateline too.

  • Dahne

    Go Grimm, may you see an upswing in the cold weather.

  • rob60990

    Wow at the LMS reruns. The 8 one did only one tenth worse than the last original while the 830 one did better than most episodes of The Neighbors.

    Didnt last years college football game FOX aired do much better?

  • Leon

    Serious question, NBC renewed Hannibal with a 0.8 18-49 demo, so what is the liklihood that Dracula gets renewed with a 0.9 core audience? And it also went up before it’s winter break to a 1.1, something Hannibal never did in the its last few weeks!
