Understanding TV ratings

All ratings posted are live-plus-same-day numbers provided by Nielsen.

“A Nielsen rating goes by percentage. In regards to a national television show, such as something on NBC, if a program receives a Nielsen rating of 15, it means that 15 percent of the public participating in the ratings service watched the television show. This means the other 85 percent either watched something else or didn’t watch television at all.”

Why are ratings important?

The adults 18-49 group is the primary demographic by which ad rates are set. In theory, the higher the percentage of this group watching a show, the more valuable that show becomes to advertisers and therefore, the networks.
