Today's Early Overnight Ratings

This table shows the early overnight ratings. These ratings are normally adjusted later in the day when all the ratings have been consolidated to take into account any local preemptions and/or overruns. You can find all the final adjusted numbers in our Ratings Database. (See the About section below for details about ratings)

If you are new to ratings or still confused, we recommend you read this excellent Ratings FAQ.

-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS dominated each of the six half-hours in the household overnights thanks to its combination of “NCIS” (#1 for the evening: 12.2 rating/19 share), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (9.2/15) and relocated “Person of Interest” (7.8/14), which built from failed year-ago occupant “Vegas” (6.8/12 on 11/13/12) by 15 percent. CBS, in fact, bested No. 2 NBC by a hefty 73 percent in the overnights, but NBC is still the network to beat among adults 18-49 (and other key young adult demos).

“The Biggest Loser” opened the night for NBC with a second-place 4.4/ 7 at 8 p.m., which was on par from one week earlier (and that translated into a 2.1 rating/6 share among adults 18-49, based on the fast affiliate ratings). Next was “The Voice” at a second-place 7.3/12 from 9-11 p.m., which was up by six percent from its 6.9/12 from one week earlier (which translated into 11.30 million viewers and a 3.4/ 9 in the demo).

Over at ABC, still demo friendly “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” dipped to a series-low 4.2/ 7 (#3) in the overnights at 8 p.m., which was seven percent below the 4.5/ 7 one week earlier. Weaker lead-in support was detrimental to lead out comedies “The Goldbergs” (#3: 3.4/ 5) and “Trophy Wife” (#3: 2.5/ 4) from 9-10 p.m., which also dipped to series lows. And 10 p.m. special “Scandal for Real: The Top 10 Political Scandals of the Century” closed the night with a very distant third-place 2.3/ 4 at 10 p.m.

Elsewhere, Fox was virtually identical to one week earlier with its live action sitcom combination of “Dads” (#4: 2.4/ 4), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 2.4/ 4), “New Girl” (#4: 2.7/ 4) and “The Mindy Project” (#4: 2.1/ 3). And that translated into an adult 18-49 demo rating ranging from a 1.4/ 4 for “Dads” to a 2.0/ 5 for diluted “New Girl.” The CW, meanwhile, featured just full season-renewed “The Originals” (#5: 1.7/ 3), which was 42 percent above year-ago occupant “Hart of Dixie” (1.2/ 2 on 11/13/12) and veteran “Supernatural” (#5: 1.4/ 2).

About the Daily Ratings

Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above.

Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.

If you are new to ratings or still confused, we recommend you read this excellent Ratings FAQ.
