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.

    I post and fast as the wind those four nut cases get here to defend their show. You guys are the same person or you are friends and act together. Someone needs a life. I bet you all four belong to the same fan site.
    U guys need a love life. A real one. ;)

  • Raul

    Anna, Sherri, Katie , and rest of fangirls. If you are different persons to start with because you all sound the same.

    Please , please.  Those five times you proudly say h50 increased the demo are lies .And u know it. Nov 22 and Jan 10 th, BOTH were reruns. So H50 increased after a rerun? OMG, not even CBS had the nerve to brag about that in their Press Releases. Increasing after a rerun? LOL

    12 episodes so far.
    H50 retained the demo once , and increased demo twice.
    BB, retained the demo three times and increased once.

    And in all 12 episodes BB increased viewers at 10 pm.

    BB is a 10 PM show. You and your friends posted over and over last seasons that 10 PM shows are in tougher spots , allowed weaker numbers. U forgot that now, wonder why. Hmmm.
    BB is the winner, and h50 is hurting it because it has not been able to improve the slot numbers as you and your friends said it was going to happen because they show is loved for ” so many”. Bleh.
    The moment I heard CSY NY was gone and replaced by this show, I knew BB was going to pay the price. I was right.

    Troll alert!

    Anna and Sherri ,
    Not even 15 min between your posts. I call that coordination!

    A wise advice for your group of little friends,

    Anger is a normal, healthy emotion. But managing anger can be a problem for many people who find it difficult to keep their anger under control.
    Health issues linked to unresolved anger include high blood pressure, heart attack, depression, anxiety, colds, flu and problems with digestion.

    Writing, making music, dancing or painting can release tension and help reduce feelings of anger.

    It’s too bad Fox threw Enlisted under the bus like that, it was actually very funny. They should of paired it with Brooklyn 99.


    original randy misery loves company lol

    “Returns?” Where did I go?

  • Yvonne

    @iSezzo aka Lucia, Nowhere. You went nowhere and you never do! Bet you can’t wait for the next thread with the final numbers tomorrow! What puppets will be joining us?

    Damn straight – you are right. That is why I practise martial arts – Tae Kwon Do tobe precise and I’m perfectly happy with my life :)
    Hace a nice day Troll.

    Go LMS! Go Bones! Go H50! Go For The Gold! ;-) :-)

    Enlisted is a charming military comedy with heart. Hope Fox gives it time to find an audience.

    Oh, what a trolly buncha’ coconuts. :D

  • rgxx

    Last Man Standing was Hilarious – And I’m glad the oldest daughters husband wasn’t in it – he is annoying and too left-winged political. And obnoxious about what’s wrong with everything.

    Unfortunately Lucia will never go away, she is like a bad penny. As long as H50 is doing well and Alex is happy living in Hawaii with Malia(whom he loves) and their beautiful family, Lucia will continue to troll the Internet and wish him nothing but bad things, including her bashing H50. She thinks if she says it enough H50 will magically get cancelled and Alex will come back to her in LA.
