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.

  • The “Bachelor” Nick Episode 2 Recap – Reality Steve

    […] Ratings are in from last night and they were pretty steady with last week. Actually, almost identical with 6.5 million and a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demo. But still, both episodes have rated below the first two episodes of Ben’s, Chris’s, and JP’s season. Lets see next week when it’s finally not going up against college football how well it does. Usually the earlier episodes kinda dip because there’s so many contestants still left and fans aren’t invested in anyone, but I think we’ll get a better picture of how this season is gonna fare compared to previous seasons. But as for Ashley’s prediction that this will be the highest rated season ever? She’s living in fantasy land. […]
