“The Vampire Diaries” began its final season on The CW with ratings in line with the second half of last season. The show drew a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49, down from a 0.6 for its Thursday-night premiere last season but in line with its average after it moved to Fridays.
The news wasn’t as good for “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” whose 0.2 was down a tenth of a point from its premiere and its 2015-16 average.
It was pretty much status quo on the other networks. “Hawaii Five-0” and “Blue Bloods” (each 1.1) were both off a tenth from last week’s fast nationals on CBS, while “MacGyver” was steady, also at 1.1. “Last Man Standing” (1.1) and “Shark Tank” (1.2) were steady for ABC, and “Dr. Ken” slipped a tenth to 0.8.
“The Exorcist” improved slightly for FOX, rising a tenth to a 0.8. “Hell’s Kitchen” was even with last week’s 1.0.

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.
