    Note: The following labels are based on the household overnights and are subject to change given the availability of other pending data streams. These overnights are your first look at the ratings and a precursor to what could lie ahead. And we take into account other benchmarks including the expected demographic ratings, potential DVR usage, the critical acclaim (or lack of) and the social media presence.

    “NCIS” (CBS), “Dancing With the Stars 10th Anniversary Special” (ABC), “The Voice” (NBC), “NCIS: New Orleans” (CBS)

    -Honorable Mention:
    “Chicago Fire” (NBC)

    -Losers (excluding repeats):
    “Undateable” (NBC), “New Girl” (Fox), “One Big Happy” (NBC), “Weird Loners” (Fox)


    Ratings Breakdown:
    ABC got a boost care of the “Dancing With the Stars 10th Anniversary Special,” which finished second in the 8 p.m. hour with a 7.2 rating/12 share in the household overnights. Tops in the time period, of course, was “NCIS” on CBS at a 9.4/15, but a 6.5/10 for third-place “The Voice” should be more than enough for the singing competition to lead in all the key young adult demographics.

    Despite the improved lead-in support, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” on ABC only had a slight bump from one week earlier, with a distant second-place 3.3/ 5 in the overnights from 9-10 p.m. And it led into a third-place 4.3/ 7 for a special edition of “20/20” at 10 p.m., themed Captive: A Journey of Survival and Hope.

    At 9 p.m. on CBS was freshman “NCIS”: New Orleans,” which fits like a glove out of parent “NCIS” at an 8.7/14. And that led into on-the-fence “Person of Interest” at a 5.3/ 9 at 10 p.m. (#1), which dipped by 40 percent from the 9:30 p.m. portion of “NCIS: New Orleans” (8.8/14).

    Airing out of “The Voice” on NBC was sophomore sitcom “Undateable” at a 3.0/ 5 (#3), which held only 45 percent of the 8:30 p.m. portion of the singing competition. And that led into the season (or, more likely, series) finale of recently introduced sitcom “One Big Happy” (#3: 2.2/ 3 at 9:30 p.m.), followed by “Chicago Fire” at a second-place 4.7/ 8 at 10 p.m.

    Elsewhere, tired “Hell’s Kitchen” on Fox (#4t: 2.6/ 4 at 8 p.m.) led into sitcoms “New Girl” (#4: 1.7/ 3) and recent entry “Weird Loners” (#5: 1.1/ 2) from 9-10 p.m, which is an absolute goner. And The CW’s solid “The Flash” (#4t: 2.6/ 4 at 8 p.m.) led into a 1.2/ 2 (#5) for new drama “iZombie,” which was flat from last week.

  • 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 (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

    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.
