Sunday was a pretty modest night in the ratings on broadcast, with no show making it to a 2.0 in adults 18-49. “Little Big Shots” got closest with a 1.8, but it was down 0.2 from the previous week.
“Family Guy” (1.4) was the night’s top scripted show, equaling the rating from its last episode a month earlier. Also at FOX, “Bob’s Burgers” (1.0) fell 0.1 vs. last week, while “The Last Man on Earth” (1.1) was steady. A double helping of “Crowded” (1.2 and 1.0) on NBC was in line with the fast nationals for it and “The Carmichael Show” last week (both adjusted down in the finals). “Once Upon a Time” (1.1) and “Quantico” (1.0) were also even for ABC.
CBS’ “Madam Secretary” (0.9) and “Elementary” (0.7) were both down 0.2 vs. a week ago, while “The Good Wife” (0.9) was even with its last episode.

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.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. 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.
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.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
