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.

    Poor Enlisted. It’s much better than FOX’s so-called comedy crap that actually get some good treatment AKA New Girl & Dads. It has so much potential. Such a shame FOX just decided to get rid of it.

  • Ron

    Shark tank is now doing better than ABC’s Tuesday and Sunday lineups and close to Mondays.

  • joel

    My ABC was (still is) off the air because of transmitter failure. Where can someone stream The Neighbors for free without waiting a week?

  • Jules’ fan

    At this point, talking about TCD chances of survival based on its poor ratings is nonsense. The show is dead as a doornail and not even a 0.4 can save it. TCD could be renewed as a cheap filler, and since it works so well elsewhere (online venues), it has a shot. Still, its ratings are dead! TCD’s fans are desilutional. I’m not a hater BTW. I watched half an episode and it was way better than B&TB will ever be. :D


    Good for TCD is it gonna get renewed is the real question

  • Dan S

    I think ABC should strongly consider moving ST to a new night. It’s potential is being wasted on Fri & could either go to Tues at 9pm or Thur at 8pm. ABC could move 2 of their weaker comedies to Fri creating a 2hr TGIF lineup. Granted they risk imploding on Fri but they’re literally getting killed after The Goldbergs airing on Tues & Thur at 8pm.

  • speaksoftly

    Grimm is doing well!

  • Richard

    I still think the ‘de facto cancelled’ label for Carrie is bull. It defied the odds last season, and could do it again with it’s current performance.

  • babycakes213

    Enlisted is a horrible show. I am not surprised.

  • queeneeuq

    The Neighbors haven’t been below a 0.8 this season which is higher than the new dramas sans shield. And the Fogelman thing Galavant is the only thing fresh for next season. Plus Paul Lee says at TCA that he is choosing between this and Trophy Wife. Pretty much Shield and The Goldbergs are renewed.

  • Shepherd

    The decision to cancel TCD was made last spring. 0.4s aren’t going to save it; 0.5s wouldn’t save it either. TCD is so dead a buzzard wouldn’t eat it.

  • Marsha Weaver

    A rise to .9 is very positive for Dracula, considering it’s competition and NBC’s minimal promotion of it. Fans want a Season 2!


    What’s Hancock?

    @ BigBrotherFan

    What’s up w/ Gunnar’s hair?


    Hawaii 5.0 is doing great on Friday nights. Great viewership. Shark tank is truly a beast on Fridays. Honestly I have to say I love that Friday night has a little bit for everyone. Is it me or is Friday night turning into a surprise with multiple networks having success. It’s by no means a dead night on tv.

  • tedtalks

    still poor for TCD, but lets see how Hart of Dixie does on Friday to judge bar of success, because CW probably won’t do better unless they move a hit show there. CW should really switch to unscripted on Fridays mixed with repeats

  • Sarah

    I was really hoping Bones would be up. Oh well. Hopefully it will adjust up, though.

  • Peter

    Dracula is doing well in UK and it is co produced by UK Sky Channel and NBC , so it may get a S2. Here in UK networks don’t cancel shows as fast as in the USA. We watched Dracula finale this week and let me tell you it was amazing. Don’t miss it !
    Shark Tank And Blue Bloods are very popular in the UK . Hawaii 50 is not doing great here , the old CSIs do better.

  • Poppy

    Bones is still doing their job, hanging in with all the other scripted Friday shows, defo a success story for Fox.

  • RESI

    No matter how well Carrie does, it’s cancelled. There are other shows getting better ratings, it’s just a matter of time.

  • Gary A

    I have asked this before but have never been given a good answer – only some snarky responses – but I would like to know why as an advertiser I wouldnt think between H50 and Grimm that it’s not better to advertise on H50 with the same demo as Grimm but with twice the viewers? And I know one answer I will get is that advertisers only pay for the demo but if I’m choosing between two shows with the same demo for the hour why not have 5 million more people see my product?
    Just wondering
