Definitions:

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.

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.

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.)

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 101and Numbers 102.

    Arrow :(

  • Charmed

    Good for Suburgatory! TCD will get renewed over TTP

  • Jay

    Looking good for three Dick Wolf renewals!

  • Charmed

    Good night all round (except CW)

  • Edward

    Chicago PD is up week to week and ties CSI for first. Nice.

  • Ronald

    WOAO WTH AI is killing Arrow and what happened to TTP 0.5 that`s it`s low rating ever right¿?

  • David Howell

    MF already within a half-point of Idol!

    If that 1.6 for Chicago PD holds, I think it’s a sign it’s going to survive. I think 1.4 is the floor. Not a good nnight for Parenthood fans with Revolution also on the uptick.

  • Fred

    At least Nashville rose a bit : )

  • Jared

    Too bad for Arrow..last night’s episode was AMAZING!

  • feinn

    Arrow down , people losing interest, can 100th tvd be top cw show this week

  • Bee

    unbelievable that ABC kept that trainwreck SFN there past the fall. UNBELIEVABLE. each week it stays, it’s killing nashville a lil more. sigh. i guess i’ll enjoy nashville while it lasts.

  • TVMAN

    GOOD FOR IDOL!! It’s quite steady!

  • IDOL_FACTS

    IDOL is doing great numbers for its second week.. It’ll remain steady

  • Hardline_Pro

    I wonder what made Criminal Minds drop so low?

  • DUSKxDAWN

    Still not so good for Nashville, however, the plots of its recent episodes are simply not attractive. Nothing fresh, just the same old cliche about the characters over & over again. Love the show after all and do hope it can eventually improve.

  • feinn

    @Ronald I doubt AI, a karaoke show is taking away its audience, people that watch scripted are different

  • Gaius Bolling

    @Jared I’m shocked Arrow dropped because everywhere on social media hyped the episode and everyone thought it was great. Guess it’s the idol competition which despite that, the show still held up pretty well. Starting to get worried about the tomorrow people…at this point the 100 and star crossed need to bomb for it to have a chance or it needs to be decent on its new night on monday

  • Nick.

    Up across the board with the odd exception of Arrow (is 0.8 a new low?). A shame since last night’s episode was really good.

    Great for Revolution! If its ratings stay at 1.4-1.5 (been like that for much of the season) then I’m expecting a renewal.

  • Fred

    Nice for Middle :)
    Fierce competition .
