Flash Ratings Chart for Sept. 14, 2008

September 15, 2008 11:35 AM

Prime Time Preliminary Sunday Ratings

Football dominated the schedule for NBC. Fox's repeat of "Fringe" brought in some additional viewers, thanks to additional material, including a scene from feature film "The Day the Earth Stood Still," a preview of "24: Redemption" and additional scenes from Tuesday's new episode of "Fringe." Due to the nature of preliminary ratings and live events, data for CBS and NBC should be considered approximate until final numbers are released.

*Ratings are specified in the 18-to 49-year-old demographic and viewership in P2+.

A note about ratings: Ratings are expressed as percentages of Nielsen's estimated 112.8 million U.S. television households. The first number, the rating, is a percentage of households tuned into a specific program at a specific time.

The second number, the share, is a percentage of households with televisions in use tuned into that same program. For example, if a show obtains a 10.2/16, this means that 10.2% of all U.S. households tuned into the program at some point during the broadcast. Meanwhile, 16% of all households watching television during the time period viewed the program at some point. Ratings are broken down further by demographic, as networks sell advertising time based on the makeup of the audience.
