Due to the nature of live sports programming the ratings for CBS (US Open Tennis overrun) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers. See below for more information on these Fast Affiliate Ratings. Plus, ABC results below are inflated due to a local pre-emption in Boston for the Monday Night Football games.

On NBC, the 2011 Miss Universe Pageant drew a 1.6 adults 18-49 18-49 rating, down 16% vs. last year and it's lowest rated show ever.

Hell's Kitchen slipped 11% from last week to a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, but remained the top rated show on the night.

Bachelor Pad final two episodes were up sharply vs. last week to a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating at 8pm, and a 2.3 rating for the 9-11pm finale. While the 9pm finale was up 28% from last summer's finale,  note that ABC results are inflated due to a local pre-emption in Boston for the Monday Night Football games, so you might want to hold off on the champagne just yet. And while it's certain that ABC will top the night's adults 18-49 ratings, overall downward adjustments are possible.

Two specials on the CW. Gaga by Gaultier drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating from 8-9pm, we won't have the ratings for the entire 75 minute show until the finals are available later today. Ditto the short The CW 2011 Fall Preview Special, no ratings until the finals later today.

Ratings for the two Monday Night Football games will arrive either via ESPN press release, or with our regular cable ratings around 4-5pm Eastern time.

Not that anyone probably cares, but the entire CBS lineup was delayed in the Eastern/Central timezones by 35 minutes making the fast affiliate results below a useless mishmash.

Late-night results are below the primetime data.

In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.6/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/6 with an encore delayed by a sports overrun; and ABC's combo of "Nightline," 2.5/6; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.2/4.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.8/3; "Late Show," 0.5/2 with a delayed encore; "Nightline," 0.8/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.4/2.

At 12:35 a.m., "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.2/4 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.0/4 with an encore delayed by a sports overrun). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2 with a delayed encore).

At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.7/3 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.2/2 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

NOTE: All national ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

Definitions:

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live football game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.
Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.

Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
