WWE & UFC ratings delayed due to power failure at Nielsen


Due to a power failure at Nielsen's data center in Florida while going through an upgrade, all ratings have been delayed and there is no set time when they will be available.

At this point ratings are only available through Friday, so even the weekend numbers haven't come out.

Nielsen sent an e-mail to its clients yesterday saying, "Nielsen continues to work with the local electric company and our technology team to resolve issues caused by...the power outage. At this time we do not have any additional details to share regarding application availability or data delivery schedules for the services impacted."

This has caused a delay in all broadcast ratings, cable ratings, and even overnights and fast nationals.

Besides Raw last night, this has also delayed the ratings of the UFC show on Saturday night with Vitor Belfort vs. Kelvin Gastelum headlining. Most likely SmackDown ratings would also be delayed since it will take time for Nielsen to catch up.
