Before the people meters in radio, ratings were taken by diary. That too would have included bar viewing if the TV ratings were taken like that.
When someone is selected as a Nielsen household, Nielsen comes in and attaches devices to every piece of electronics in the house that is capable of receiving a TV signal. Then there is a box connected to each of those device that allow the household members to select who is in the room. There are preprogrammed buttons for each of the members of the household. There are usually some extra buttons for guests. So the device records any time the TV is on and a show is being watched, and it's up to the user(s) to indicate which household members are in the room.

Apparently, some of the reporting is done based on the audio signal. When I was selected several years ago, they came in and started doing the installation, they were going to clip some kind of device to the speaker wires that carried the sound from my receiver to my speakers. I then explained that I did a lot of TV watching with wireless headphones and the sound muted. They couldn't figure out any way for their systems to properly record that type of TV watching, so I was deemed ineligible.

But shows a Neilsen family member watches while outside the home are not recorded?

I believe there is a way for a Nielsen household member to manually record shows watched outside the house. That would be similar to the diaries that you mentioned for radio and that are still used for recording sweeps ratings in many markets.

As for how they determine which family member is watching which shows, the box has several buttons and there is one pre-programmed for each household member. So when that person enters the room, they're supposed to hit the button and then hit it again when they leave the room. Everything that is viewed while that person's button is pushed is deemed to have been watched by that person.

So, a Nielsen family member who watches the World Series while at a bar would count in the ratings if the person remembered to manually record it.

As for the second question, I deleted it in a ninja edit when I reread and saw you answered it.

I believe that is the case as I'm pretty sure that's what they explained to me when I was being considered to be a Nielsen household. But it's possible I am remembering that wrong.

Yes, I saw that, but I had already written my explanation and I figured it provided more info than the first post, so I just left it there.

Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

NOTE: Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for Fox (World Series) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers. Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Seattle at St. Louis) was simulcast on the CW affiliate in St. Louis. As a result, CW numbers may be inflated and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

NBC and FOX tied for number one in Adults 18-49 while FOX was on top with total viewers.

On FOX, game five of the World Series garnered a 3.8 preliminary adults 18-49 rating, even with Game 5 of the 2011 series (the most recent game 5) but down 14 percent from a preliminary 4.4 for game 4.

On NBC, the first night of the knockout rounds on The Voice earned a 4.2 down 2 percent from last week's 4.3 adults 18-49 rating. The Blacklist garnered a 3.1 up 3 percent from last week's 3.0 adults 18-49 rating.

On CBS, How I Met Your Mother earned a 2.9 down 3 percent from last week's 3.0 adults 18-49 rating. 2 Broke Girls scored a 2.6 up 4 percent from last week's 2.5 adults 18-49 rating. Mom garnered a from last week's 2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Hostages notched a 1.3 up 8 percent from last week's series low 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, Dancing With the Stars matched last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, and tied its lowest rated Monday telecast ever. Castle notched a 2.1 up 11 percent from last week's season low 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

On the CW, Hart Of Dixie matched last week’s 0.4. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST matched last week's 0.3 adults 18-49 rating.

I'm sad that the World Series cannot even beat The Voice.

Note that it also went up against MNF, which took 10.7 million sports-leaning eyeballs away.

Very true.

Speaking of which. How does the ratings take into account channel surfing? I constantly channel surf, especially during sporting events. So for instance, Monday night there was the WS game, a hockey game I wanted to watch and the MNF game. So I was surfing between all of them during commercial breaks and so forth (and using my PIP too).

Was that a new episode of The X-Factor, or a re-run. That seems really low for a new episode. Probably because regular fans of the show didn't know to watch it on Tuesday.

Proof that S.H.I.E.L.D is a terrible lead-in for The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife. I'd still like to see if either could do better than Super Fun Night after Modern Family.

SHIELD was a repeat. Repeats generally get lower ratings than a new episode.

His point was that whether SHIELD was new or a repeat, The Goldbergs got the same rating both weeks. The Goldbergs has an established audience and SHIELD is not adding to that working as a lead-in.

I'm not positive, but I seem to remember reading it's in 10 minute increments.. which is interesting, because Viggle (the app that gives you rewards for checking into TV shows -- it was WAY better for the first year or so it was around, but it's still fun to play with/I've gotten a BUNCH of $25 Best buy Gift Certificates from it) needs a minimum 10 minute checkin to get the "bonus" points for checking into various shows.

So if I was watching last night's World Series and flipped to 3-4 minutes of another show during commercials, I'd get no reading? Even if I watched an ad on another channel? Interesting.

Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

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

NOTE: Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for FOX (World Series) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers.

On FOX, Game 6 of the World Series, which featured the Red Sox winning the series at Fenway Park for the first time in 95 years, earned a preliminary 5.4 adults 18-49 rating up 42 percent from a 3.8 for Monday's Game 5, and ranking as the highest rated Wednesday for any broadcast network since FOX’s January 30, 2013 broadcast of American Idol.

On CBS, Survivor earned a 2.3 down 4 percent from last week's 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. Criminal Minds scored a 2.4 down 11 percent from last week's 2.7 adults 18-49 rating. CSI garnered a 1.8 down 14 percent from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, The Middle earned a season low 2.1 down 5 percent from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Back In The Game matched last week's series low 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. Super Fun Night, which followed a repeat of Modern Family for the first time, notched a series low 1.8 down 14 percent from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Nashville garnered a series low 1.4 down 13 percent from last week's 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.

On NBC, Revolution matched last week's series low 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were accurate.

On the CW, Arrow earned a 0.7 down 22 percent from last week's 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. The Tomorrow People garnered a 0.6 down 14 percent from last week's 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

I know they report half hour ratings for shows longer than an hour. Not sure how detailed the data gets broken down for subscribers.

However a show might get a 2.5 and have a 2.8 the first thirty minutes and 2.3 in the second thirty minutes.

Here is the 2014 Renewal Scorecard from TVLine and Michael Ausiello. A slightly different look than TVbytheNumbers (and their Cancellation Bear):

It's too long to post, I'll just link...

Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

ABC was number one with adults 18-49 while CBS was on top with total viewers.

Note: Viewership levels were down 8 percent among adults 18-49 versus last week due to Halloween.

Last night’s Thursday Night Football game (Dolphins/Bengals) was simulcast on the NBC affiliate in Cincinnati. As a result, the NBC may be inflated and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

In addition, The Vampire Diaries aired at 10PM in New York City last night, so its ratings are subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

On ABC, the annual telecast of It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown earned a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating down 19 percent from a 2.7 on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 but gar outperforming ABC’s average in the time period. Grey's Anatomy tied its series low with a 2.6 down 7 percent from last week's 2.8 adults 18-49 rating. Scandal matched last week's season low 2.9 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too pessimistic.

On CBS, The Millers garnered a series low 2.0, down 26 percent from last week's 2.7 adults 18-49 rating when it followed a new episode of The Big Bang Theory. The Crazy Ones scored a series low 1.9 down 17 percent from last 2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Elementary earned a 1.7 down 6 percent from last week's 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

On NBC, the special Saturday Night Live Halloween garnered a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating, significantly outperforming Parks and Recreation & Welcome to the Family’s averages in the time period. Sean Saves the World earned a 1.2 up 9 percent from last week's 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. The Michael J Fox Show scored a series low 1.1 down 8 percent from last week's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Parenthood matched last week's 1.3 adults 18-49 rating .

On the CW, The Vampire Diaries scored a 0.8 down 38 percent from last week's 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, but the show aired at 10PM in New York City so the nation’s largest market will not be counted until the final ratings are released this afternoon. Reign matched last week's 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Fox punted the night because last night would have been Game 7 of the World Series, if necessary, and it became unnecessary only about 20 hours before prime time started. I can only assume (because there was no "On Fox" blurb paragraph) that Glee was a rerun.

Though, it doesn't say "R". If that was a new ep, those are spectacularly bad ratings.

I cut & paste, but you are probably correct. I'll add a "-R?" just to clarify for future reference.

Glee was a repeat of the Finn tribute episode from a few weeks ago.

Did the 2nd half hour (when it was really a separate Charlie Brown show about one of the kids running for a school election - I didn't watch it but actually transferred off more for the 2nd show, since I'd seen the Great Pumpkin many times as a kid) get way lower ratings?

2.3 for the first half hour, 2.1 for the second.

CBS was late by almost 30 minutes last night. I am looking forward to seeing how it affects the ratings again. I am beyond frustrated with the fact that they do this regularly, more or less plan for it, and yet actually benefit from it in the ratings if what was posted earlier in this thread is accurate. I've now padded my programs by 1/2 hour. If it ever gets beyond that I will probably just stop recording CBS shows on Sunday and get them online.

If it wasn't for the dVR I would give up on CBS on Sunday nights.

Here link is an update on CBS last night. After hyping The Mentalist all week (this was a pivotal episode for the series), they end up not showing it due to the delay. Their FB page has literally hundreds of posts, all mad as hell.

if online was my only option, i would just stop watching cbs. i'm glad the online option is there for last resort viewing, but it can still be a hassle, and it's a lot more inconvenient than the living room tv.

cbs has a good library online, but it's not perfect, either.

Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

NOTE: Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for NBC & CBS (NFL Football) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers.

CBS prime started at 7:59 due to football runover (Steelers vs. Patriots).

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

On NBC Sunday Night Football, (Indianapolis Colts-Houston Texans) earned a preliminary 5.7, up a tenth from last week's preliminary 5.6 adults 18-49 rating from 8:30-11PM.

On CBS, a football-inflated 60 Minutes scored a 3.2, up massively from last week's 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. The Amazing Race earned a 2.0, up two tenths from last week's 1.8. The Good Wife earned a 1.6, up from last week's 1.4 adults 18-49 rating and matching its season high

On FOX, The Simpsons returned to a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating, down half a ratings point after its last original's 3.0, nearly a month ago. Bob's Burgers notched a 1.8, down a tenth after its last original's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Family Guy matched its last 2.5 and American Dad earned a 1.9, down two tenths from it last original's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, America’s Funniest Home Videos matched last week's season high 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Once Upon A Time scored a 2.3, up a tenth from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were spot on! Revenge earned a 1.7, up three tenths from last week's season low 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Betrayal notched a 1.0, up a tenth from last week's 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.
