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.

    So Carrie…yeah, wow. It’s killing Beast.

  • Andrew43

    Shark Tank is a real Friday beast!

  • Dillan


  • DenverDean

    Dateline helped Grimm more than UB helped H50.

  • KC

    Guess Bones has leveled at 1.5 from now on.

  • Charmed

    Carrie! :D it’s half hours were 0.4/0.4!!!

  • jose

    H50 is dead¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡blue bloods two dowm from UB

  • Charmed

    Carrie steady with the same episode last season, and up in total viewers!

  • queeneeuq

    Poor neighbors still better than hope

  • s0303

    Friday ratings have been really good this year…It seems like last season only 3 or 4 shows would manage a 1.5 on a friday and last night there were 7…

  • Noel

    Now I don’t usually go against the bear, but Carrie is doing okay compared to BATB and I think Carrie is cheaper to produce. Plus its a friday show. I don’t know I could still see a a short season order again for Carrie, maybe as a last one. Since Netflix was the reason the CW renewed Nikita for a final season because Netflix asks for a proper ending for shows otherwise people won’t bother to watch it. BATB does well digital as well, sell it to CW Seed? Lol.

  • Carl

    Dateline really seems to help Grimm. Either that or what replaces Dateline is abysmal every time?

  • JeffT

    “The premiere of Enlisted earned a 0.6, down a tenth from last week’s 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.” If Enlisted was on last week, how can last night’s episode be a “premier?”
    Just asking.

  • Jacquelyn

    Even with the slight up tick in Dracula, it’s still predicted to be cancelled, right?

  • Rene

    Carrie is so steady. But i don’t see a renewal.

  • One


    Lest ye start watching Enlisted, ye shall know the wrath, either from me or from a government which seeks only to subvert your free will!

  • Carmen

    Wow!, Dracula “rose” all the way up to a .9.

    There will be a call from its fans for NBC to give it a 2 year renewal immediately.

  • Rita

    Stop hitting on H50. It only seems the one most people pick on.

  • Freedom

    8 pm half hours anyone?

  • rob60990

    Lmao at The Neighbors. It has a great timeslot and it cant crack a 1 and some idiot thinks its getting renewed with those ratings.
    ABC really is a mess when Shark Tank beat everything else on ABC except The Bachelor, Shield, and Modern Family but its one of few shows they havent screwed up with at least not yet.
