The two-hour finale of FOX’s “Scream Queens” drew ratings in line with its recent outings, averaging a 0.9 in adults 18-49. It may have done well enough with younger viewers to make it to a second season, but it was hardly the breakout FOX was hoping for this fall.
A couple other shows had down nights as well. CBS’ annual “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” special took a big hit, falling more than a point (3.4 to 2.3) from last year’s show. “The Flash” (1.2) posted a season low for The CW, and “The Muppets” and “Fresh Off the Boat” each tied their season-low fast national numbers from last week.
NBC bucked the downward trend, as “The Voice” (2.7), “Chicago Med” (2.1) and “Chicago Fire” (2.0) all rose a tenth vs. last week.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||2.3/8||1.7/6||1.1/4||0.9/3||0.9/3|

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.
