Due to the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, there will be delays with the normal publishing of much of our regular ratings information.

The daily cable ratings, and daily cable news ratings¬†will be delayed according to the following schedule and the broadcast finals should follow a similar pattern. We should have them posted on our site within an hour or two after the times in the table.¬† Most of the weekly data that’s normally posted on Tuesdays will be pushed until Wednesday and the late night and soap opera ratings which are typically available on Thursdays will get pushed later as well.

I’m not certain yet of the delays for broadcast ratings, like the preliminary fast affiliate ratings and the final broadcast ratings, but I’d expect delays there too.

There are a number of ways to keep up with the information we publish, particularly when there may be delays. Check them out.

Enjoy the holidays!
