Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 2/22/11: NCIS over Glee, P'hood over Good Wife


WHAT MATTERS:
  • By this time a year from now (if not much sooner), we'll talk about this like it's nothing, but it's worth noting on the first night it happens; NCIS beats Glee heads-up. Still a pretty decent showing from Glee, though. (They ended up tied in rating in the finals, but I'm still giving NCIS the win because it has a larger share... meaning it was bigger beyond the first decimal.)
  • Also rare this season has been Parenthood beating The Good Wife, something that happened somewhat frequently during the shows' first seasons and that many thought would continue into this year. It happened here. It's a series-low showing for Wife, which loses more than half of the NCIS: LA demo for the first time. (This number was adjusted in finals from -51% to -49%.)
  • The only week-to-week listings change was a special Tuesday edition of Primetime: What Would You Do?, which was up only a bit from recent Detroit 1-8-7 airings and down from most of its Friday performances this season. Looks like it's best as a Friday show.

KEY
A18-49 - From Nielsen. Adults 18-49 rating. Percentage of US TV-owning adults 18-49 watching the program.
Share - From Nielsen. Adults 18-49 share. Percentage of US TV-watching adults 18-49 watching the program.
Lead - Calculation. Percent difference from lead-in program.
Last - Calculation. Percent difference from previous original episode.
LeLa - Calculation. Percent difference between the show's lead-in and its lead-in for the previous original episode.
Comp - Calculation. Competition. Total rating of all broadcast programs airing against it.
HUT - Calculation. Phrase commonly known as "Households Using TV," but in this case it's actually "Adults 18-49 Using TV." Percentage of US TV-owning adults 18-49 who are watching any TV in that timeslot. A rough approximation based on all ratings/shares in the timeslot. More on this later.
bcShr - Calculation. Broadcast share. Percentage of US national big-5 broadcast TV-watching adults 18-49 watching the program.
Avg - Calculation. Percent difference from the show's average demo for previous original episodes this season.
Rank - Calculation. The rating's rank among the show's original episodes that have aired so far this season.

Will probably develop more disclaimers if this develops further, but the one that jumps out for now is that the stats in blue will be less accurate because for now I'm counting every program as if it maintains that same rating throughout each half-hour of the broadcast. That is almost always not the case in reality.
