Note: Due to the nature of live sports coverage, ratings for FOX (FIFA Women’s World Cup Soccer) and NBC (NASCAR) are tentative and likely to be adjusted in the final ratings. Due to a rain delay, the NASCAR race started at 11:15PM in Eastern and Central time zones, making NBC’s fast nationals especially inaccurate.

FOX was number one with adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On FOX, FIFA Women’s World Cup Final: USA vs. Japan earned a preliminary 6.4 adults 18-49 rating, up 94 percent from a preliminary 3.3 for Tuesday’s semi-final and up 36 percent from the 2011 Women’s World Cup Final, which also featured USA vs. Japan, which garnered a 4.7 final adults 18-49 rating on ESPN. The post-game show earned a preliminary 4.7 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, Celebrity Family Feud earned a 1.5, down 21 percent from last week’s 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. BattleBots scored a 1.2, down 14 percent from last week’s 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.

On CBS, Big Brother earned a Sunday series low 1.5, down 20 percent from last week’s 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

On NBC, NASCAR Sprint Cup Coke Zero 400 started at 11:15PM in eastern and central time zones due to a rain delay. The preliminary 0.8 adults 18-49 rating is inaccurate.

: 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.
