The Memorial 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 May 27 nationals rescheduled to Tuesday May 31 at 1 pm (normally Monday afternoon)
  • Saturday May 28 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday June 1 at 6 am (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Sunday May 29 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday June 1 at 6 am (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Monday May 30 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday June 1 at 1 pm (normally Tuesday afternoon)
  • Tuesday May 31 nationals rescheduled to Thursday June 2 at 1 pm (normally Wednesday afternoon)
  • Wednesday June 1 nationals scheduled for Thursday June 2 at 1 pm*
  • Thursday June 2 nationals scheduled for Friday June 3 at 1 pm*

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.
