In the Saturday ratings this week, NBC’s broadcast of the NASCAR Coke Zero 400 race won by a landslide with a 1.0 average rating in the night. It was the only program to reach the 1.0 barrier with an average of 5.01 million viewers. Meanwhile, ABC scored the second-highest spot with “20/20: In an Instant” grabbing a 0.5 and 2.55 million viewers.
FOX continued its weekly MLB coverage this week as well, raking in a 0.5 average rating also, though with slightly fewer viewers than “In an Instant.” This was still, however, up one-tenth from the 0.4 that the network grabbed last week.
In addition, CBS aired the first of several unaired episodes of its quickly-cancelled series, “Doubt,” last night to a 0.2 rating, predictably less than the 0.6 and 0.8 ratings its first two episodes had scored back in February.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.0/5||0.5/3||0.4/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||5.01||2.49||2.31||2.19|
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.
