FOX’s live NASCAR broadcast easily led Sunday’s 18-49 ratings on the broadcast networks. The night was predictably light on TV usage given it fell in the middle of a holiday weekend.
The Coca-Cola 600 delivered 3.94 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, pending updates for the live telecast. FOX finished 0.3 ahead of ABC (0.5) in the 18-49 demographic for the night.
A pair of “Instinct” episodes came in at 0.4 and 0.3 in adults 18-49 for CBS. The network also had the most-watched show of the night in “60 Minutes” (6.14 million viewers).
At ABC, “Deception” wrapped up its run with a two-hour finale that averaged 0.4.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.8/4||0.5/3||0.4/2||0.4/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||3.94||3.01||4.81||2.45|
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.
