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.

    […] Ratings are in from Monday night, and the “Bachelorette” again won it’s timeslot for the evening and improved it’s ratings from last week, going from 5.5 million viewers to 5.78 million viewers, and drawing a 1.8 rating versus the 1.6 rating last week. Steady, solid numbers that are pretty consistent with previous “Bachelorette” seasons. I don’t think anyone expected some major drop off in this anyway, but, to see 14 years in they can always count on winning their 2 hour timeslot on Mondays, especially in the Women 18-34 demo, that’s all that really matters to them.
