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.

    Bones beat Rake.

  • Dennis

    Good for Enlisted!

  • Matt M.

    HUGE ratings for SharkTank and 20/20! Wow… both over 8.0 million viewers!

    Not bad for Last Man Standing, either.

    AMAZING for Bones.

  • were123

    WOW at Bones! 1.8 on Fridays?! FOX should give it a 2 year renewal right away! (I know they said they would renew it for a final season, but look at those ratings!).
    Enlisted did better than Raising Hope ever did in the timeslot, but a 1.0 is not going to save it. If it somehow manages to raise from here onwards, then it has a chance.

  • Matt M.

    Not bad for Enlisted and Grimm, either.

  • r0ckmypants

    Wow, very nice jump for Enlisted. I expected it to go up a little, but that’s much more than I ever anticipated.

  • CrimTV

    A good night for all networks

  • Matt M.

    Series high for SharkTank in total viewership – not in A18-49 though. I believe it hit a 2.3/7 last year?

  • Shepherd

    Bones must have run late, going to wait for the finals.

  • Matt M.

    Last Man Standing got a 1.4/5 not a 1.2… Wrong info in table.

  • rob60990

    Monster ratings for Shark Tank and 20/20.

    Lmao at Enlisted doing better than every episode of flop Raising Hope this season.

  • SJ

    Enlisted did better than any episode of Raising Hope in that time slot, while Hope did better than Enlisted’s first two episodes in the 9:30 slot. Also, CBS’ repeats seem unusually high. As well as ABC’s 9-11 block.

    Could this be a case of “a rising tide lifts all boats”?

  • Charmed

    Carrie rose in total viewers :)


    WTG Bones & a definite high five for Enlisted! RH up (though still bad) & Grimm holds its own w/ ST high. LMS still 1.4, so all nets had good news last night.

  • LisaM

    Dracula did worse than I had hoped. Not sure if we get another season.

  • sally

    Hawaii 50 and Blue Bloods great casts

  • Maur

    I hope Dracula gets renewed, it’s great.

  • Helen

    I’m so happy for Bones!!! It got most of its Monday audience back. And I’m also glad that Enlisted went up. :)

  • Sarah

    Bones!! :)
