The final rating for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final rating for tonights episode of “CSI” will be reported in next weeks report for Thursday, November 15, 2007.

Also keep in mind that because these are fast national ratings, numbers may increase or decrease when the final nationals are released.
