Sunday was a little light on original series on the broadcast networks, which held back on Easter. The originals that did air were pretty well in line with recent performances.
A CBS concert special saluting the music of the Bee Gees led the night in both adults 18-49 (1.2 rating) and viewers (10.26 million). NBC’s “Chicago Justice” (0.9) and “Shades of Blue” (0.7) were both even with last week.
ABC was also steady, with “Once Upon a Time” (0.7), “Match Game” (0.6) and “American Crime” (0.4) all matching their numbers from a week earlier.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.0/4||0.8/3||0.6/2||0.4/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||8.26||4.45||2.49||1.14|
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.
