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.

    […] Ratings are in from last night, and the “Bachelor” drew their highest viewing audience of the season with 6.74 million viewers. Their 1.8 rating is .1 behind the 1.9 they drew the last two weeks, which were season highs. But again, the pattern continues to remain the same with this show. It gains in audience every week as the number of women dwindles down. This is when Joe Casual Fan usually starts tuning in. But for 8 consecutive weeks now, the show’s audience has grown. People can say whatever they want about Colton, and trust me I have and they have, and yet the same concept remains true: the lead of the show doesn’t matter. It’s the formula that works. I’ve had one of my highest traffic and highest grossing “Bachelor” seasons these last two months. Just goes to show, no matter who they put in that role, people are watching. […]
