Final broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Sunday, September 9, 2018
Predictably, there were quite a few adjustments from the Sunday early adults 18-49 ratings to the finals today. CBS’ “Big Brother” adjusted up from its initial 1.5 to a 1.6, while the series premiere of FOX’s “REL” also ticked up, climbing two-tenths from a 1.7 to a 1.9.
Elsewhere, NBC’s first “Sunday Night Football” broadcast of the season adjusted up too, rising from its initial 6.6 to a 7.5 – still down significantly from the 9.1 that the network’s SNF debut had scored last year.
There were also several downward adjustments in the finals, as CBS’ “60 Minutes” (0.8) and its “Hawaii Five-O” (0.4) encore both slipped a tenth. On FOX, the network’s late-afternoon NFL overrun (5.6), “The OT” (4.2), and a “Family Guy” (0.6) repeat all adjusted down. NBC’s “Football Night in America” (2.3) and SNF Pregame (5.0) both ticked down from the initial ratings as well.
Upward adjustments in adults 18-49 are in blue, downward adjustments 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.
