Premiere week C3 ratings: Football rules

C3weekone
Nielsen officially released the fall premiere week C3 ratings — the currency now used by advertisers to determine primetime rates — and, no surprise, commercial spots during football are by far the most seen in the land.

ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” was tops among non-sports programs. And CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0” and “Bleep My Dad Says” were the only two new shows to make it into the top 25.

According to Nielsen, on average, the C3 rating for the top 20 shows was 8% higher than its live-only commercial rating.
