The start of “American Idol’s” Hollywood round resulted in a ratings uptick Wednesday, as the show rose 0.1 vs. last week to a 2.5 in adults 18-49. “Hell’s Kitchen” (1.4) was a ratings upgrade from “Second Chance,” which is moving to Fridays.
CBS and The CW were the only other networks running a full line up new episodes. Both “Arrow” and “Supernatural” were steady for The CW, while CBS was mixed. “Criminal Minds” (2.0) and “Mike & Molly” (1.6) were even with last week’s fast nationals (“Mike & Molly” later adjusted up to 1.7), while “2 Broke Girls” (1.6) and “Code Black” (1.3) were each down a tenth.
After a block of comedy reruns, ABC’s “American Crime” fell a tenth to 0.9.

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.
