Family Guy normally outperforms TAR but since its a half hour show, CBS (or any other network with hourlong programming) will state how their show won the hour. Fox which doesn't always get the best overall adult 18-49 demo, does win the night in adults 18-34 (all of their programs on Sunday score a higher 18-34 then all of the shows on CBS).  As much as Ad buyers love 18-49, they fall over themselves for adults 18-34.  Thats why they have some extremely long lived shows that at least based just on total viewers and 18-49 don't do that great, they make a huge profit thanks to having superior younger demos.  Especially with that age group being the group that is fastest in switching to DVR viewing, or to online streaming (both of which earn per person much smaller amounts of revenue) ad buyers will sometimes spend as much as 4 times the general adult 18-49 rate for an equal number of just 18-34.

With the fact that we nearly broadcast at the 9pm hour, we still held the same demo from last week, that is good.  We ranked 14th in viewers and 17th in the demo. 

A very solid performance.

DVR results for week #4
Live Same Day
9.271 million viewers
Live PLus 7
10.514 million viewers  ( a gain of 1.243 million viewers, a percentage gain of 13.4%).  We nearly made top twenty five lists this week (thanks to about a third of shows having reruns).  The 25th show gained 1.255 million viewers.  And on the demo front, we were 29th, though the shows from 17th to 36th all gained .5 (it was results to the second decimal point that separated the group out).

So far this cycle, we are doing solid numbers for CBS in general (live Same Day), very strong for V overall, and nearly the best for all Sunday shows (with typically only the half hour Family guy doing better). 

We are doing better then any other Sunday show on CBS in adults 18-34 (no surprise as the other shows tend to have extremely old audiences), adults 18-49 (again also not a surprise), but also adults 25-55 (many seasons we have not had the best performance for CBS on Sunday here).

Though broadcast network audience do still continue to shrink (and at faster rates then any other decade since at least the 70's), TAR has held far better then most shows. 

With both Good Wife and Mentalists officially renewed today, (Surprised I am by the Mentalist, as CBS doesn't produce that show), I expect at least one of them to be moved to Friday next year.  I also hope that the Goodwife is pushed to 10pm (on whatever day it does air), its average audience age is one of the oldest on network tv (only Blue Bloods and 60 Minutes is older), and having TAR sandwiched between two shows with extremely old audience does hurt TAR.  Of course it also makes TAR look really good, having such a dramatically different audience between those two programs.

Live Same Day
2.4 adults 18-49
Live Plus 7
2.9 adults 18-49, an increase of a half a demo point, a percentage gain of 20.8%.

Yes, DVR makes up a huge part of the majority of shows audience, even if it brings in considerable less revenue.  Most shows about 35- 45% of its total audience is from DVR viewers, and that includes TAR.

But since DVR results are included in Live Same Day numbers (the ones report by news sites, newspapers, blogs, here), most people don't realize how large it actually is.

CBS Sunday Live Only numbers in adults 18-49 (From the fall)
60 Minutes - 2.2 adults 18-49 (Heavily impacted by NFL overruns)
Amazing Race - 1.9 adults 18-49
The Good Wife - 1.4 adults 18-49
Mentalist - 1.5 adults 18-49

TOTAL DVR AUDIENCE for those shows
60 Minutes - .3 (only 12% of its overall audience, 66% of that DVR audience is from the original air date)
Amazing Race - 1.2 (40% of its total audience is from DVR of which, 58% of that DVR use is from the original date)
Good Wife - .8 (36% of its total audience is from DVR, 38% of that DVR use if from the original air date)
Mentalist - 1.2 (45% of its total audience is from DVR,  25% of that DVR use is from the original air date)

Some very popular shows have even greater percentage of their audience from DVR

Big Bang Theory 52% of their total audience is from DVR use
Grey's Anatomy 54% of their audience is from DVR
The Following 54% from DVR
Once Upon a Time 50%  from DVR
Modern Family 57% from DVR
Glee 53% from DVR
NCIS and Criminal Minds 48% from DVR
Revolution 46% from DVR
Survivor 46% from DVR
Grimm 56% from DVR

I watch the race live on high def channel, while recording it on regular channel. Do I get counted twice? What happens when it is running late it is titled the good wife instead of the race.

couchracer, that totally depends on whether you are getting it over the air, by cable provider, or by satellite.

From what I've understood the cable and satellite providers have the ability to track viewing live, on their provided DVR, or repeated time shifted viewing. I don't know if that is used for Nielsen, but since that would be a simple matter of software tracking, it should be possible.

As to delays, Nielsen does have the ability to adjust the show's audience numbers for delays due to live programming overruns, but not for the preliminary overnight figures that come from the 50 largest television markets. They clearly are doing it for live plus three day or live plus seven day, since they have to know when their viewer sample watches shows that were recorded for later viewing.

Actually Overnight ratings now do include time shifted data ( I still hate them, since they only track large cities, and many shows perform in rural america completely different then cities).

Couchracer, you only get counted if you are one of the Nielsen's sample homes.  If you are a home in that sample, then any multiple viewing are now counted.  That's a fairly new change to their system, as previously you could watch a program 5 times that night, but only get credit for watching it once. 

I always thought that was stupid as the whole point of the tracking system is to track how many people are watching the commercials, and if you do watch those commercials multiple times they should be more effective.  Now the networks are provided a breakdown of their totals, so they know for example how many of their total for the night is from multiple viewings from the same person (some if its multiple times through the week), they know if a household is a casual viewer (doesn't watch it often) or if a household watching it every single week.

Now for the bulk of us, who aren't part of the sample, some services, like Video on Demand, Tivo, a few cable groups, and satellite providers do get household data.  By that I mean they know if someone has that program on.  They don't typically get income or age breakdown or how many people are watching each show in that household.  Those numbers, are not included in addition to the sample done by Nielsen.

The Sample by Nielsen, if done properly, should have a sample that basically takes that into account.  Nielsen's sample is one of the larger done in the US.  For example when they do polling for political or news purposes (from all things like Elections to tracking the opinion over issues for the US) typically Gallop and other groups use a sample of a between a 1 - 5 thousand.  And they have a history of being typically within 3% of the actual legitimate number.  The sample by Nielsen is thirty thousand homes (so probably a lot closer to 70 thousand).

Right now for TV purposes the one arena that Nielsen does't currently track well is online streaming, which is still fairly new, but its growing and growing quickly, especially among the young.  But the actual official sites (like Netflix, or Hulu, or say CBS' site) does track the number of streams active.  They just can't tell if you are actually watching the show, the age and income of the people watching the show, if you are watching commercials, and how many people are currently watching from that one stream.  Until they set that up, those numbers will not be included with nightly numbers (they also must play the same exact commercial breaks to be included, and most online streams don't feature full commercial loads).  But so far, the networks are not willing to cough up the money to track that (yet).  Eventually, enough people will switch over to that style of viewing that will force the networks to put the same number of commercials on, and to set up the at home devices to track the breakdown of the audience (seriously each person, including any guest have to click a device every two minutes to verify you are watching a program, it sounds rather annoying).

Some people want or wish that Nielsen just tracked each device.  That will, and I repeat, will never happen.  Most people will not allow outside agencies to monitor everything they watch.  As it is, Nielsen with just 30,000 homes gets turned down a lot by people who don't want that invasion of privacy.

Mine is a cable provided DVR. We live in rural America. Sometimes (like last week) the Dvr shows Good Wife as the label, but when I watch it, the label at the bottom says Amazing Race. We are not currently a Nielsen family, they only seem to want my youngest daughter and she is not interested. Thanks for the info.

Here's CBS' take on the weekly ratings for TAR 22, Episode 7. CBS is treating it as a "special" which IIRC means it won't be used for the averages at the end of the season.

CBS WINS IN VIEWERS, ADULTS 18-49 AND ADULTS 25-54 FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE WEEK

Here's the final ratings from Sunday April 14th according to zap2it.com. Since I also found the top 25 rankings for 18-49 viewership and total viewership for the week, I'll post those too. The 18-49 numbers were the same as the March 31st episode but the total number of viewers was up 340,000 people. TAR was 18th for the week in 18-49 viewers and 19th in overall viewers. For what it's worth, TAR beat Survivor in total viewers but Survivor was several places ahead of TAR among 18-49 viewership.

I feel dumb because I called up the weekly numbers for the week including April 7th and TAR wasn't in the Top 25.  I was a bit shocked and it took me a couple of minutes to remember that TAR hadn't aired because of the Country Music Awards show.  :groan:

CBS    The Amazing Race (8-10PM)    2.3 [18-49 Rating]   6 [18-49 Share] 8.95 [Viewers Live+SD (million)]

Unless it gets adjusted up by 0.3, this might go down as the lowest-rated finale ever.

Does this season have the lowest 18-49 rating in franchise history?  TAR22 seemed to max out with an ~2.5 18-49 Rating.

Slayton, thanks for reminding me about the ratings. I've been meaning to catch up and hadn't done it. Good thing I checked now, because the April 21st ratings were at the bottom of the archive at zap2it.com and probably would have been dropped later today.

TAR did well this week, finishing 10th in the 18-49 ratings and 14th in overall total viewers.

For the April 28th show (Edinburgh), TAR slipped a little bit in the ratings and finished 14th among 18-49 viewers and 18th in total viewership. Their actual numbers were down slightly in 18-49 and up in total viewers, but other shows improved more, so TAR shifted down a few notches.

As Slayton as already pointed out, the ratings for the finale weren't all that we could have hoped for. TAR finished 18th among 18-49 viewers and 21st among total overall viewership. I'm a little surprised at this given the way the rest of the season went. I saw something on Monday morning that said TAR was hurt by the NASCAR race running long on FOX, but I haven't seen it mentioned since then. Since we are frequently helped in the fall by NFL games running long, I guess it makes sense that an overrun on another network might hurt TAR. While this may have been one of our weakest showings this season, it would have been about average for the fall as I remember it. Overall TAR has had a good season in my opinion. Slayton, you're right, the raw viewership numbers are down this season compared to past seasons, but that has been true across the board for just about all shows. TAR has actually improved in the ratings over past seasons because other shows have declined more than TAR and TAR has moved up. I don't think TAR is in any danger of being cancelled, but if the network wide viewership decrease continues, I imagine CBS will eventually have to cut what it pays World Race Productions to make TAR. Maybe WRP will find other sources of revenue to maintain the budget, maybe they will be forced to cut costs. Time will tell.

Your concerns have been addressed a couple of times in this thread earlier this season by people who know more about it than me. You might want to scroll back to the beginning and read it for reassurance.

Since peaking around TAR 15, ratings have tended to decline by a predictable amount each year.

TAR 16 averaged 2.8-3.2
TAR 18 averaged 2.5-2.8
TAR 20 averaged 2.5-2.8 (interestingly there was no decline)
TAR 22 averaged 2.3-2.5 (remarkably stable this year)

Given the weaker-rated shows on CBS Sundays, the show is safe until it dips below a 2.0, which won't be for at least three cycles.

Ratings Review: THE AMAZING RACE (Spring 2013)

THE AMAZING RACE has become the foundation of the CBS sunday line up. It gets about as many total viewers as the dramas THE GOOD WIFE and THE MENTALIST  but always performs well in the A18-49 ratings, as the networks top performer in the category.

The numbers did drop, slightly, for THE AMAZING RACE. From the fall season, it was down a couple tenths of a ratings point in Adults 18-49. viewership was mostly flat, down less than a a couple hundred thousand viewers.

What the series really needs a strong companion series. A show that compliments its demographics. If CBS could program a two hour block of shows that attract the same type of viewers, TAR could see a resurgence in the ratings, even against football in the fall.
