The Season 5 premiere of “Grimm” came in lower than its debut a year ago, scoring a 1.1 in adults 18-49 vs. 1.4 a year ago. It was, however, even with last season’s finale and in line with its average last season. “Truth Be Told” rose a tenth, and “Undateable was steady at 0.7.
On CBS, “The Amazing Race” (1.2) and “Hawaii Five-0” (1.1) each rose a tenth vs. last week, but “Blue Bloods” (1.1) lost a tenth. ABC got a boost from a “20/20” interview with Leah Remini about her exit from Scientology — it was up half a point from last week. “Shark Tank,” however, was down 0.1, while both “Last Man Standing” and “Dr. Ken” were flat.
FOX led the night with Game 3 of the World Series, which was down from the first two games but still posted a healthy 3.1 in adults 18-49, pending updates.

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, 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.
