The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our review column do not reflect the overall performance of a show, given the increasing use of delayed playback across DVR and streaming platforms, as well as viewing outside the home. These numbers (Nielsen Fast Nationals unless designated Finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. This is just an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please no bets.
