These are household ratings. The denominator is the total of all Japanese households that own a television. So a rating of one means that in one percent of the households at least one television in those households was tuned to that program. I believe Nielsen has a six-minute minimum before a program is considered to be viewed; I don't know if the Japanese rating agency has a similar minimum.
