Nielsen.com and HollywoodReporter.com are two sources of television ratings. HollywoodReporter.com publishes daily television show ratings, while Nielsen compiles and publishes them weekly, monthly and quarterly.
Nielsen.com features television show ratings for broadcast networks, cable channels and syndication network television. There are also additional lists of ratings for broadcast programs among Hispanics and African-Americans.
The television show ratings on HollywoodReporter.com pertain only to broadcast networks. Beyond the top 10, the website occasionally features articles focused on shows whose ratings slip suddenly. The website gives the total number of viewers, the average rating the viewers gave the show on a scale of one to 10, and the percentage of viewers between the ages of 18 and 49 who watched each program.
