: 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” tied a season high in overall viewers and set their season high in ratings. Their 8.5 million viewers last night tied it with episode 6 (remember last week’s 7.1 million was due to going head-to-head with the Grammy’s), and it garnered a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demo, which bested the 2.4 rating on episode 6 by .1 of a point. I’m great at math. I could be the next Chris Harrison. Hey, all he’s doing is subtracting whole numbers. Like last night he subtracted 2 from 3 to tell the ladies there was only one rose left. I just subtracted decimals, so that makes me Billy Bad Ass. […]
