Final broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Tuesday’s two top-rated shows got a little bigger with adjustments from the fast national ratings to the finals. “America’s Got Talent” (2.5 rating in adults 18-49) and the Major League Baseball All-Star Game (2.3) adjusted up a tenth of a point.

The All-Star Game is up a little bit vs. last year in both the 18-49 demographic (2.3 vs. 2.2) and total viewers (9.28 million vs. 8.71 million in 2016).

Upward adjustments in adults 18-49 are in blue.

: 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.
