On CBS, How I Met Your Mother earned a season high 3.8, up seven tenths from last week's 3.1 adults 18-49 rating. 2 Broke Girls scored a season high 3.0, up three tenths from last week's 2.7 adults 18-49 rating. Mike & Molly garnered a season high 2.6, up five tenths from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Mom notched a 2.4, up half a ratings point from last week's series low 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Intelligence earned a 1.5, up four tenths from last week's 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, The Bachelor notched a 2.5, up two tenths from last week's season low 2.3 adults 18-49 rating.

On NBC, Hollywood Game Night scored a 1.5, up from from last week's 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for The State of the Union Address are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments. See below for more information on these Fast Affiliate Ratings.

On NBC, The Biggest Loser earned a season low tying 1.7, down two tenths from last week's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

On The CW, The Originals earned a 1.0, down a tenth from last week's 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. Supernatural scored a 1.2, up a tenth from last week's 1.1 adults 18-49 rating and matching its season high.

On FOX, Dads matched last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 rating.

At 9PM, The State of the Union Address earned a 1.1 on ABC (down a tenth from last year's 1.2) , 1.3 on CBS ( up from last year's 1.1) , 1.4 on NBC (down from last year's 1.6) and 1.0 on FOX (up from last year's 0.9).

I watched on CBS for one reason only: they are the undisputed leader in picture quality, at least in my market.

They are here too. I like Brian Williams so I watched NBC. If I happened to be watching a show on another network that was showing it, I probably would have just stayed there.

I don't know what CBS did, but PLEASE, can we stop with all the tweets scrolling on the screen? I don't need to see that during the President's speech. I find it a bit disrespectful.

Basically, if you weren't TBBT or AI or following it, you got pounded.

The ratings are starting to look like binary code, lots of 1's & 0's.

Other than sports, is TBBT the one of the few scripted shows in recent times to actually get higher than 2 consistently? Heck, is it the highest rated scripted show on TV today?

Maybe even if you include reality shows?

NCIS will frequently get a larger total audience but nothing scripted comes close to Big Bang in demo ratings. The only televised program that gets a higher demo rating than Big Bang is Sunday Night Football.

I went by ratings. NCIS will routinely get 20+M viewers, but can score anywhere from 1.5-2.7, and can be #2 because a show with half the viewers gets 0.1 more.

And Sunday Night Football is sports. I just wanted to know if TBBT happened to be the only programming that's getting unheard-of ratings for modern TV. I mean, getting 5+? Sure maybe 20, 30 years ago that was common, but these days...? I wonder what the ad rates for for TBBT...

I don't know where you get your info but those NCIS numbers are WAY off. Here are their ratings for new episodes this season:

3.6
3.5
2.8
3.1
3.0
3.0
2.9
3.0
3.0
2.9
2.9
3.0
3.0

Anything below a 2.0 for NCIS is for a repeat which means nothing.

Cable ratings and broadcast ratings aren't apples to apples comparable. Ratings are based on percentages of available audience and those differ between broadcast and cable as the available audience for cable is less than that of broadcast television.

That wasn't the question asked. Worf asked about all shows on TV, not broadcast vs cable.

But does TWD have more viewers, or just higher ratings because the denominator in the fraction is lower?

More viewers in the target demographic. It had almost 8 million viewers 18-49 (about a 7 rating) for the recent mid-season finale, and over 12 million viewers total. It is regularly the #1 show across cable and network television and by far the highest rated cable show of all time.

I'm not even sure Azlen's assertion is correct. AFAIK, a rating point is equal to 1.1-1.3 million viewers whether it is on network or cable. If it were based on the number of cable subscribers per channel, I think we'd see more inflated cable ratings as opposed to the paltry CW type numbers we see for cable shows.

I think it's based on the number of cable subscribers total.

That's probably true for audience in the 18-49 dem but unless you know what audience size 1 rating point equals for both shows then you can't say for sure because they are different.
The total audience for Big Bang is definitely higher than 12 million as they approach 20 million on a regular basis.

[ed: having some trouble interpreting TBTN; will update if they clarify]


Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

NOTE: Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for FOX (Super Bowl, New Girl & Brooklyn Nine-Nine) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers.

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

On FOX, The Super Bowl earned a preliminary 34.4 from 7-10PM down 13 percent from last year's 39.7 adults 18-49 rating. Of course, last year the game was not a blow out and a chunk of the broadcast wasn't counted due to a blackout in the stadium. Your predictions for the game's total viewers were too optimistic.

Update: The time-zone adjusted ratings are in. New Girl earned a series high 11.1 adults 18-49 rating from 10:23-10:54PM and was up 42 percent in adults 18-49 and 23 percent in viewers over last year's post-Super Bowl episode of Elementary. It was also up 13 percent in total viewers over the most recent post-Super Bowl half hour comedy, 2009's broadcast of The Office. New Girl was the highest rated scripted entertainment telecast on broadcast TV in 3 years, since FOX’s post-SuperBowl Glee (11.2 rating on 2/6/11) Brooklyn Nine-Nine scored a series high 6.7 adults 18-49 rating from 10:54-11:25PM. Your predictions for New Girl were a little pessimistic, but you accurately called Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Good thing I recorded the Super Bowl Postgame or I'd have missed the beginning of New Girl.

Yeah, starting the shows 7 minutes early was kind of lame. I guess they needed to redirect people to Fox Sports One before interest petered out.

I am not sure what you are trying to say. The Walking Dead outperforms BBT in the 18-49 demographic no matter the measure. It does have fewer total viewers, but that number is far less important. If total viewers were important, then CBS would be trouncing all of the other networks by a huge margin.

i'll be interested to see how downton abbey ratings performed during the super bowl, and sherlock against the post game. live+7 numbers added 52% to downton's jan 5th se4 premier (10.2 to 15.5 mil).

A rating is the percentage of a potential audience that watches a show. A cable rating of 1.0 does not equal the same number of viewers as a broadcast rating of 1.0 because the size of the denominator for the two is different because the size of the potential viewers that could see the show is different. i.e. not everyone has cable or satellite.

I don't know that it actually is reported that way for cable and, even if it is, that would make the walking dead an even bigger winner with 7.7 million viewers 18-49. As it is, it is already bests BBT if you use the same denominator as is used for BBT ratings (i.e. a much larger denominator)
