Anonymous, this website has a guide to what the Nielsen ratings mean: http://thefutoncritic.com/ratings.aspx?id=faq The procurement of the viewing statistics is largely done by devices attached to a select household's TV. Only a couple of thousand of devices are used, but enough to make the data representative of the entire U.S. The people with the devices are chosen at random to be demographically representative. The U.K. has a similar system with BARB.

As a British viewer of the TBBT can someone explain how the Nielsen ratings are calculated?

To the Administrator person who posts these TBBT news blurbs, I would add that when TBBT was in the 9:30 slot it did better than "rules of engagement"'s premier
