A pair of new shows, “Chicago Justice” and “Time After Time,” each suffered some ratings dips Sunday.
“Chicago Justice” is in better shape. It fell two tenths of a point vs. the previous week and scored a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49. “Time After Time” also dropped two tenths, coming in at a weak 0.4 for ABC. “American Crime” also posted a 0.4, down 0.1 from its premiere. “Once Upon a Time” was steady at 0.8.
“Little Big Shots” (1.5, -0.2) and the just renewed “Shades of Blue” (0.8, -0.1) also came down for NBC.
FOX was mostly steady for the night with a small downtick for “The Last Man on Earth” (0.8, -0.1) the only change from a week ago. CBS’ numbers are subject to change thanks to an NCAA Tournament game running into primetime, but “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.2) is currently up a tenth while “Madam Secretary” and “Elementary” are in line with last week.

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.
