NOTE: Due to the nature of live  programming the ratings for  NBC, CBS & FOX (NFL Football) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers. CBS’s primetime line-up was delayed approximately 50 minutes in the Eastern and Central time zones so the ratings are too scrambled to be meaningful. Due to NFL overruns in 16 percent of the country, FOX ratings are inflated.

NBC was number one among adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On NBC the second week of Sunday Night Football, which featured a match-up between the 49ers and the Seahawks earned a preliminary7.4 adults 18-49 rating from 8:30-11PM, down 19 percent from last week’s preliminary 9.1.

CBS’s primetime line-up was delayed for about 50 minutes in the Eastern and central timezones due to football coverage, so the preliminary numbers are hopelessly scrambled. Check back tomorrow morning for the Sunday finals to find out how Big Brother did.

On ABC, a special Miss America themed episode of 20/20 earned a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating up 50 percent from a 0.6 for the comparable episode on January 12, 2012. The Miss America Pageant scored a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating up 19 percent from a 1.6 on January 12, 2013. (Due to a scheduling quirk, there were two pageants within the 2013 calendar year.)

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. 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. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live baseball game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

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.

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. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
