The Memorial Day holiday will cause delays for daily national ratings (cable and broadcast programs) this week.  This is how the week’s ratings should roll out after the holiday.  We will update these times if anything changes.

  • Friday May 22 nationals rescheduled to Tuesday 1 pm PT (normally Monday afternoon)
  • Saturday May 23 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday 6 am PT (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Sunday May 24 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday 6 am PT (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Monday May 25 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday 1 pm PT (normally Tuesday afternoon)
  • Tuesday May 26 nationals rescheduled to Thursday 6 am PT (normally Wednesday afternoon)
  • Wednesday May 27 nationals scheduled for Thursday 1 pm PT (normal time)
  • Thursday May 28 nationals scheduled for Friday 1 pm PT (normal time)

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