It is my understanding that for cable ratings they do not use the entire universe of people who own televisions but instead use the universe of people with cable.
I agree that Walking Dead has a bigger dem audience than Big Bang but you can't solely use the rating number to prove that point. 5% of a bigger number can be greater than 7% of a smaller number.

New Girl was like 3 minutes late.. and both it and Brooklyn 99 seemed to have fewer commercials than usual, so Brooklyn DID start a bit early..

The number I reported/cited was millions of viewers, though, not ratings. I think that's where we have a disconnect. We know it had 7.7 million viewers in the target demo for the most recent episode, and that is more than BBT had in the same 18-49 demo. I actually don't know what the reported rating was for The Walking Dead for that episode, but it's either a bit more or a LOT more given that many viewers in the demo. I speculated it was about a 7 if you use the same denominator used for networks, but it might be a smaller one in which case it would be way more than 7.

I can see why AMC is doing a TWD spin off. Heck, if I was them I'd have enough spin offs going to feed the zombie beast year around.

The last episode of The Walking Dead had 12.1 million total viewers, 7.9 million in the 18-49 demo and a 6.1 demo ratings.

The last episode of TBBT had 19.04 million total viewers, 6.61 million in the 18-49 demo and a 5.1 demo rating.

Do the math, the rating point for cable and network is the same. 1.3 million viewers per rating point, just like I mentioned before.

Comments:

Note: CBS was preempted in Greensboro. and Raleigh North Carolina & the CW was preempted in Baltimore and Richmond from 8-10PM due to college basketball coverage. Ratings for the CW and CBS may be inflated and subject to more than the typical adjustment in the finals.

CBS was the number one network in adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On CBS, NCIS scored a 3.0 adults 18-49 rating, even with its most recent new episode. NCIS Los Angeles earned a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating up 21 percent from a 2.4 for its most recent original. Person Of Interest notched a 2.1 up 5 percent from a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating for its most recent new episode.

On ABC, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E L.D. garnered a 2.1 down 5 percent adults 18-49 rating from a2.2 for its most recent original. The Goldbergs earned a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating up 13 percent from a 1.5 for its most recent new episode. Trophy Wife scored a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating up 11 percent from a 0.9 for its most recent new episode. Killer Women matched the series low 0.7 adults 18-49 rating for its most recent original.

On NBC, Winter Gold: NBCs First Look at the Sochi Olympics notched a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. The season finale of The Biggest Loser earned a 2.2 up 29 percent from last week’s season low 1.7, but down 19 percent from a 2.7 for last year's finale and tying its lowest finale rating ever.

On FOX, Dads matched last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 rating. There was no boost for either of the comedies that aired after the Super Bowl. New Girl scored a 1.6 down 16 percent from a 1.9 for its most recent Tuesday original. In its new 9:30 time period, Brooklyn Nine Nine garnered a 1.4 down 26 percent from a 1.9 for its most recent Tuesday original. Your predictions for both shows were far too optimistic.

On The CW, The Originals earned a series low 0.8 down 20 percent from last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. Supernatural scored a 1.1 down 8 percent from last week's season high 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

Looks like you're right. I had always heard differently but it doesn't seem to be the case. Nielsen does use many different universes (denominators). For the national dem ratings though, they use a single 18-49 universe regardless of whether everyone in that universe can receive all the programming that they measure.

NBC was number one with adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On NBC, the first night of The Olympics earned a 5.8 adults 18-49 rating down 23 percent from a 7.9 for the first night of the 2010 Winter Olympics. It’s an imperfect comparison, since in 2010 the first night of competition was on a Saturday, against weaker competition, and came after the opening ceremony. Your predictions were accurate.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory earned a 5.0 adults 18-49 rating, down 4 percent from last week's 5.2. The Millers scored a 2.7 up 4 percent from last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. The Crazy Ones garnered a series low 1.7 down 11 percent from last week’s series low 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Two and a Half Men notched a series low 1.8 down 10 percent from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. Elementary earned a 1.8 down 5 percent from last week’s 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

On FOX, American Idol earned a 3.0 down 6 percent from last Thursday’s 3.2 adults 18-49 rating. Rake garnered a 1.1 down 15 percent from last week's 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, The Taste scored a 1.0 down 9 percent from last week's 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.

On The CW, The Vampire Diaries tied its series low with a 0.9 down 18 percent from last week's 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. Reign matched last week's series low 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

The Beatles ratings were not that great, but I guess that was to be expected due to the Olympics. I understand why they wanted to air it that day, but I wonder if they will repeat it after the Olympics are over.

Comments:

NBC was the number one network in adults 18-49, but CBS won with total viewers.

Note: The CW was preempted in Chicago for Hawks-Bulls Basketball, so expect more adjustments than usual in the finals.

On CBS NCIS earned a season low 2.6, down half a ratings point from it's last original's 3.1 adults 18-49 rating. NCIS: Los Angeles tied its series low with a 2.2, down six tenths from the 2.8 it earned earlier this month. Person Of Interest hit a series low with a 1.7, down four tenths from its last original's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, a special Tuesday episode of The Bachelor earned a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth from yesterday. Mind Games premiered to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, down three tenths from the premiere of Zero Hour last season.

On FOX, Glee earned a 1.2 in its new Tuesday timeslot, up a tenth from the 1.1 it earned back in December. New Girl earned a 1.4, up a tenth from its last original's 1.3. Brooklyn Nine-Nine notched a 1.3, up a tenth from its last original's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

Good to see actual TV shows back again. Strange to see multiple shows down a half a point or more since their last showings.

How happy do you suppose ABC is with Mind Games? The 1.1/3 was not too good, especially after all the promos it got. Still, it did better than Killer Women, but that's not very hard at all.

Considering the ratings of everything else they've shown in that slot, it's actually not terrible.

From their press release.

“Mind Games” (10:00-11:00 p.m. – 3.6 million and 1.1/3 in AD18-49):
During the 10 o’clock hour, ABC’s debut of “Mind Games” opened with a 5-month high for a regular series in the time slot among Adults 18-49 – since 9/24/13. In addition, “Mind Games” was up 22% in Adults 18-49 from ABC’s most recent series debut in the hour (“Killer Women” = 0.9/2 on 01/07/14).

Mind Games got such terrible reviews, so it wasn't that surprising. I had intended to try it, but read 3 or 4 reviews from a variety of sources, all of which were universal in saying basically the same thing... "who greenlit this?"

What's disappointing is B99. 1.3/3, with 2.63M viewers? Holy cow, that's terrible.

What has happened to this thread? It isn't being updated anymore, and I really enjoyed it.

I've been distracted. My day job is interfering with my TiVo job, and I'm trying to decide which is worth keeping.

We're going thru a major IT/ERP conversion at work. We have about 60 users, and we're replacing a system first installed in 1977* with a new one. We really need this new one, but as you can imagine, changing a system used for almost 40 years is a nightmare.

And I'm the project leader... spending every waking moment making this conversion successful. Go-Live date is March 31. Right now we're running concurrent, so users can learn the new while still keeping our company alive on the old.

*Yes, you read that right. Our current ERP system was first installed in 1977! We may be close to the record for longest running actively-managed ERP system, which is not a record I care to own. We've tweaked the code, and replaced the hardware several times, but it's the same basic software for 37 years.

Nonetheless (and sorry for the thread drift), I can catch up on this past week now, as I'm taking this weekend off. First days off in 3 weeks.

Random thoughts on a week of ratings...

* Many of CBS's comedy juggernauts are not doing as well as last year. M&M, 2BG, 2.5Men, etc, all down from viewership in the tens of millions, to less then ten.

* B99 was renewed (yay!), but jeez, does anyone watch? 2.6MM viewers?

* About a Boy and Growing Up Fisher have pretty strong numbers for NBC (so far). Around 7-8 million each. Can they keep it up?

* Idol. How the mighty have fallen.

* Modern Family. Same comment as the CBS one above. Still popular, but nowhere near the viewers it used to have.

* BBT on the other hand can do no wrong. Almost 18 million viewers! And The Millers is having the coattail ride of its life.

* CBS procedurals are going strong. Criminal Minds, PoI and Elementary are all getting eyeballs. CM in particular, for a show in its 9th season, is doing amazing at 11+ million viewers.

Thanks for catching up, Astro. I, too, enjoy following this thread, even though I don't comment in it very much. Thanks for your efforts.

I'll be happy to fill in and post the ratings for the next few weeks while you're busy.

2.5 Men was struggling in the Thursday 9:30 slot but seems to have rebounded since the move to 9:00.

Modern Family is still doing very well in demo, which is the number ABC cares most about.
