The Labor Day holiday will cause delays for daily nationals ratings (cable and broadcast finals) for a few days.  This is how the ratings should roll out this week.  We will update this schedule if anything changes.  (All times Pacific.)

  • Friday Sep 2 nationals rescheduled to Tuesday Sep 6 at 1 pm (normally Monday afternoon)
  • Saturday Sep 3 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday Sep 7 at 6 am (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Sunday Sep 4 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday Sep 7 at 6 am (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Monday Sep 5 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday Sep 7 at 1 pm (normally Tuesday afternoon)
  • Tuesday Sep 6 nationals rescheduled to Thursday Sep 8 at 6 am (normally Wednesday afternoon)
  • Wednesday Sep 7 nationals scheduled for Thursday Sep 8 at 1 pm*
  • Thursday Sep 8 nationals scheduled for Friday Sep 9 at 1 pm*

* denotes normal release time

As usual, the “fast affiliate nationals” will continue to be released each morning at 8 am for the previous night’s preliminary prime time ratings on the broadcast networks.
