    Was this the lowest-rated week of the year?

  2. Jordan says:

    Wow, Masterchef really skews young. Top 5 in the demo, but then falls all the way back to 23 (rookie blue and flashpoint territory). I know it doesn’t matter, but still. I would of thought something like Bachelor Pad would have a big difference like that – but it’s 17 on both tables

    Mr. Robert Seidman, there is quite a difference between the overnight ratings from last Thursday night and the ratings for the week in total viewership for The Mentalist! The overnight ratings showed The Mentalist had a 8.14 million total in viewers yet the weekly ratings list above show it had only 6950. Could this be a mistake? Please check the figures if you would.

  4. No mistake. The preliminary numbers are often more preliminary some nights than others. There were local markets with sports preemmptions on Thursday and the viewing for those events is counted in the preliminary numbers and then stripped out in the finals. please see the fast affiliate report definitions in the overnight report. thanks.

    Thank you Mr Seidman for that clarification on The Mentalist ratings.
