No one expected “Undateable” to match its Season 2 ratings with its Season 3 premiere, since it was moving from behind “The Voice” on Tuesdays to starting off the night on Friday. Still, the show started with a pretty soft opening, scoring only a 0.8 in adults 18-49 for its live, hour-long premiere. Small comfort: It did just slightly better than the last episode without a “Voice” lead-in (0.8 vs. 0.7).
ABC held its spot at the top of the 18-49 ratings, although “Shark Tank” dropped 0.2 from last week. “Last Man Standing” improved week to week, while “Dr. Ken” mostly held up, falling 0.1 from its premiere fast nationals (which ajdusted up in the finals) and retaining all of its lead-in.
“Reign” opened its third season on The CW down a tenth from last year’s premiere and in line with its finale. At CBS, “Hawaii Five-0” was even with last week, while “The Amazing Race” and “Blue Bloods” each fell 0.1.

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, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. 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. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live baseball game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.-
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. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)
Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
