Final broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2016

There were several changes from Wednesday’s early numbers to the finals, with CBS taking a hit across primetime.

Several CBS affiliates in North Carolina pre-empted regular programming from 9-11 p.m. ET for a college basketball game, which had a greater than usual effect. The “Survivor” premiere dipped one tenth to 1.9. A “Big Bang Theory” rerun and “Code Black” both fell 0.2 to 1.0. That’s a series low for “Code Black.” “Hell’s Kitchen” also dipped 0.1 for FOX.

ABC’s “The Goldbergs” (2.0) adjusted up a tenth to pull even with last week’s rating. “Law & Order: SVU” also rose a tenth to 1.7, 0.2 behind its crossover-fueled outing a week ago.

Upward adjustments in adults 18-49 are in green; downward adjustments are in red.

Definitions:
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.
