Final broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, Sept. 18, 2017
The lowest-rated premiere ever for “Dancing With the Stars” got a little lower after adjustments from Monday’s preliminary ratings to the finals.
“DWTS” adjusted down a tenth of a point in adults 18-49 to 1.6 on ABC after factoring out a “Monday Night Football” pre-emption in Detroit. That’s half a point lower than last fall’s debut. “To Tell the Truth” (0.7) came down two tenths.
Reruns of “Supergirl” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” (all 0.2) on The CW also adjusted down. The network’s New York affiliate aired the “MNF” game.
Downward adjustments in adults 18-49 are in red.

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.
