ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” slipped to a series low Sunday night. Its 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 was down a tenth of a point from the previous week, which had been the low point for the show. Not everything was bad news for the network, however, as “Match Game” (0.7) was up a tenth and “American Crime” was steady at 0.4.
CBS led the night thanks in no small part to The Masters golf tournament running an hour into primetime. That hour drew a 2.8 rating, pending updates. Airing later than usual, “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.1) and “Madam Secretary” (0.7) matched their last episodes, pending updates; “Elementary” was pre-empted.
“Little Big Shots,” “Chicago Justice” and “Shades of Blue” all held at their numbers from a week ago. FOX aired a full night of repeats.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.5/6||0.9/3||0.6/2||0.6/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||10.47||5.55||2.97||1.49|
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.
