NBC just barely eked out a win across the Saturday primetime ratings this week.
The broadcast network held both the highest and lowest rated programs of the night, starting with the latter, a rerun of “Songland,” at a 0.2 rating in adults 18-49. “Dateline,” the source of the strongest performance of the night, was also a rerun, scoring a 0.4 with 2.46 million viewers. This matched with last Saturday’s new episode.
On FOX, Major League Baseball scored a 0.3 with 1.80 million viewers. This was an underperformance compared to the 0.5 with 2.73 million viewers it managed to pick up last week. Despite the fact that FOX was the sole network airing any new programming, it only came in third place in terms of the overall averages for the night.
The rest of Saturday’s broadcasts were all repeats.

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.
