    Note: The following labels are based on the household overnights and are subject to change given the availability of other pending data streams. The overnights are your first look at what to potentially expect when the other results come in. And we always take into account other benchmarks including the expected demographic ratings, potential DVR usage, the critical acclaim (or lack of) and the social media presence. Keep in mind, as always, that results for any live sporting event are always approximate.

    “Dancing With the Stars” (ABC), “The Voice” (NBC), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (CBS)

    -Respectable Return:
    “The Bachelorette” (ABC)

    -Losers (excluding repeats):
    “The Following” (Fox), “The Night Shift” (NBC)


    Ratings Breakdown:
    ABC opened the week on another winning overnight note care of “Dancing With the Stars,” but the home of “The Voice,” NBC, is the network to beat in the key young adult demographics. The final “Dancing With the Stars” performance show of the spring season topped the evening with a 10.2 rating/16 share in households from 8-9 p.m. (go Rumer Willis!), and it led into the two-hour season-premiere of perennial summer ABC occupant “The Bachelorette” at a 5.1/ 8 from 9-11 p.m. Comparably, “The Bachelorette” was right on par with the year-ago season-opener, and that 5.1 rating in the overnights translated into 7.17 million viewers and a 2.0 rating/ 6 share among adults 18-49 (based on the Live Plus Same Day data).

    On NBC, part one of the live season-finale of “The Voice” jumped 13 percent week to week with a 7.2/11 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, this was its top metered market household rating since March 30. Next on the Peacock net was the sophomore season-finale of medical drama “The Night Shift” at a distant third-place 3.3/ 6 at 10 p.m., which slipped by 55 percent from the 9:30 p.m. portion of “The Voice” (and did not earn its third season renewal).

    Both “Dancing With the Stars” and “The Voice” conclude for the season tonight.

    CBS featured three season finales and the series-finale of freshman drama “Stalker.” Sitcoms “2 Broke Girls” (#3: 5.0/ 8 at 8 p.m.) and “Mike & Molly” (#2: 5.3/ 8 at 8:30 p.m.), which will return at an undisclosed date in 2015-16, were slightly above typical overnights. “Stalker” ended its run with a third-place 4.5/ 7 from 9-10 p.m., and it led into the season-ending installment of “NCIS: Los Angeles” at a dominant 5.9/10 at 10 p.m. While moving from Tuesday (out of parent “NCIS”) did cost “NCIS: Los Angeles” viewers this season, it was a clear improvement over anything the Eye net has aired in the Monday 10 p.m. hour in recent seasons.

    Over at Fox were two episodes (including the series finale) of three year-old drama “The Following,” which earned its cancellation stripes at an average 2.4/ 4 from 8-10 p.m. And The CW capped off the evening with 2012 theatrical “Celeste and Jesse Forever” with Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg at a mere 0.4/ 1 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m.

  • 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.
