GO TO WEEKLY RATINGS PAGE

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast national data. Comparison’s from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on fast nationals. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). 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 “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” will be reported in next weeks report for Tuesday, December 11, 2007.

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