Once again, it was a two-hour rerun of “Dateline” on NBC that posted the strongest numbers in the Saturday primetime ratings. The news series scored a 0.4 average rating in adults 18-49 with 2.44 million viewers. This was the same rating it scored last week, although its viewership was just a fraction lower than the 2.50 million it had drawn in its final.
Beyond that, “Million Dollar Mile” on CBS made up the night’s sole new original broadcast, raking in a 0.2 and garnering 1.30 million viewers. Like “Dateline,” this was a match with its previous performance, although it did slightly improve on the 1.20 million viewers of its final rating.
The rest of the night’s broadcasts were repeats.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.4/3||0.3/2||0.2/1||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||1.84||2.07||1.66||0.73|
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.
