GO TO WEEKLY RATINGS PAGE

Notes: 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 “America’s Most Wanted” will be reported in next weeks report for Saturday, October 17, 2009. Also keep in mind that because these are fast affiliate numbers, when the finals are released there may be noticeable changes.

Also, 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.
