*Time zone-adjusted ratings.
FOX got pretty good numbers for the premiere of “The Mick” Sunday. With an NFL lead-in, the new comedy debuted to a time zone-adjusted 2.8 rating in adults 18-49, matching the NFL-assisted debut of “Son of Zorn” in September. An hour-long “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (1.3) also had above-average numbers.
The final “Sunday Night Football” of the season posted a preliminary 6.7, pending updates, on the high side for the season. It’s running 0.8 ahead of last week’s game.
CBS and ABC had softer nights. The premiere of “Ransom” drew a 0.9 on CBS before it moves to Saturdays, while “Pure Genius” managed just a 0.7. On ABC, a “Bachelor” countdown special posted a 0.8, the premiere of “To Tell the Truth” a 0.7 and “Conviction” just a 0.4.

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.
