GO TO WEEKLY RATINGS PAGE

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast affiliate 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 affiliates. (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 tonight’s episode of “Ghost Whisperer” will be reported in next weeks report for Friday, April 17, 2009. Also keep in mind that because these are fast affiliate numbers, when the finals are released there may be noticeable changes.

And lastly, there may be some errors in the data due to rounding/human error. I’ll do my best to limit those mistakes and correct them in time for the next week’s report.

    Here's to hoping that both Friday Night Lights AND Dollhouse get picked up for next year. FNL has been terrific all along, and I'd love to see Directv and NBC share this show once again for season 4. Dollhouse just needs time–as Joss has proven in the past, he can create masterpieces if given a little time to grow, ie Buffy and Angel. Thanks for posting these every day!
