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.


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.

  • Charmed

    Fine for The Carrie Diaries :)

  • Dillan

    Good for LMS.

    Expected a 0.3 for TCD.

  • Wade

    FIRST!!! but look at raising hope :( yikes :(

  • Little Miss Milly

    Will ABC just uncancel Body of Proof!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    None of the main cast members have secured any new shows except guest appearances. It’s attracts between 7-10 million (which is more than Revenge, Once, Nashville, Killer Women, The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, S.H.I.E.L.D, The Taste, Super Fun Night, Last Man Standing, The Neighbors, Betrayal, The Assets.

    Body of Proof is a great mid-season filler because you know it will get a lot of viewers in millions, i know the 18-49 rating is between 1.2 and 1.7 but its better than any other mid-season show thats aired this season on ABC so far and last season too! It’s the right thing to do! You can rely on it when viewers are falling. 13 episodes each season to air between February & May. This would allow the episodes to be really well written and filmed like the third season was! Even critics loved the revamped third season!

    Love The Neighbors but it’s a goner now. Love The Carrie Diaries and this is a small chance of renewal just because it’s not crashing on Fridays.

    OUTSTANDING for ABC. Great sign for Last Man Standing. Shark Tank is a monster, as usual. Amazing for 20/20 as well!

    H50 finally above 10 million. WOW at Blue Bloods!

  • Sarah

    Bones :(

  • rob60990

    HUT levels must be up. CBS and ABC did well except The Neighbors of course.

    Enlisted bombed as expected.

  • Percy

    Amazing for Hawaii Five-0 and Grimm!

  • Joel

    No!!!! I loved Enlisted! The premiere was so good. Why premiere it on a Friday??? Everyone should check it out. I honestly thought I would hate the show.

  • Matt M.

    I have a feeling The CW will renew The Carrie Diaries for another shortened, 13-episode season. So stable and consistent. The shorter season format has helped it.

  • luka

    Great for Bones :D

  • Matt M.

    Bones has been doing really well on Fridays. 1.5-1.7 and around 6-7 million is better than expected.

  • David Howell

    I don’t know but I’ve been told
    FOX ‘s sitcoms tend to fold

    As disastrous as expected for FOX. Is that a new low for an in-season sitcom on the big four? Or, indeed, any sitcom?

  • CBSviewer

    Good for Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods :)

  • Greg

    I knew it, Enlisted is dead. I didn’t love it or anything, but I’ll keep watching, hopefully FOX keeps airing it.

  • TV Addict

    Enlisted was so funny. I definitely recommend catching it while you still can.

  • s0303

    looks like fox should have put enlisted at 9pm…still probably would have not done much better, but they could at least have given it a chance…

    not bad for grimm considering it was sandwiched in between two shows that got 0.8’s…

  • Dan S

    Not surprised by Enlisteds low numbers. Now how many episodes until it’s pulled ? Considering Grimm was sandwiched between 2 shows at 0.8 it did okay. Hopefully Hannibal will be a better companion show.

  • Anna g

    I am so glad to see H50 going up with almost 10.5 million viewers, especially after barely 0.9 demo from preceeding Intelligence rerun. So much for saying h50 is weakest slot and cannot increase from its lead in when full competition airs! Blue Bloods also went up and had amazing overall viewership! Grimm is down a bit but still decent considering miserable lead in. Bones is only 1.5 – moving the show Friday hurt it badly and Almost human gets miserable numbers on Mondays! Dracula is a goner and so is Raising hope!

    @Charmed , your definition of fine is a bit off.
