Aside from one major NFL broadcast, it was a fairly quiet Saturday night in the broadcast TV ratings.
NBC easily won the night with its three-hour broadcast of the Atlanta Falcons vs Los Angeles Rams NFL wild-card game, which scored an average 5.9 rating in adults 18-49 with 19.56 average million viewers tuning in. No other program that aired throughout the night even came close to meeting those numbers.
On ABC, a rerun episode of “The Good Doctor” scored an impressive 0.9, while the final two episodes of “Ten Days in the Valley” raked in back-to-back 0.5 and 0.4 ratings. In addition, “48 Hours” grabbed a 0.5 on CBS, just one-tenth less than the 0.6 it had scored last Saturday.

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.
