CBS was number one with adults 18-49 & with total viewers. 

Note: CBS’s primetime line-up was delayed 20 minutes on the East Coast due to NCAA Basketball overtime. NBC was preempted in Portland for a NBA game. Ratings for CBS are inaccurate and are subject to more than the typical adjustments in the finals.

On CBS, NCAA basketball ran until 7:20PM and the rest of  the primetime line-up slid.  The ratings on the grid should be considered inaccurate. We will have the final, accurate ratings tomorrow morning. If the numbers for The Amazing Race hold, they will be a season high. If the numbers for The Good Wife hold, then the show will have risen 21 percent from the previous week.

Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2014 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

Definitions: 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.

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.

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.
