With CBS again in repeats, Fox again led the night with adults 18-49 even as it slid vs. last week.  House drew a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, down 10% vs. a 3.1 rating last week. Alcatraz had a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, down 10% vs. a 3.0 rating last week.

For what is probably the last Monday this season (at least NBC hopes), Univision topped NBC among adults 18-49 on yet another in season Monday.

The Bachelor slid 4% vs. last week to a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Gossip Girl 's 100th episode did manage a small uptick with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 0.6 rating last week. It's average viewership was the second highest of the season. Hart Of Dixie's 0.6 adults 18-49 rating was up a tenth vs. a series low 0.5 rating last week.

Who's Still Standing? drew a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating, flat vs. its last new episode. Controversy (Google it) caused the final regularly scheduled episode of Fear Factor to be pulled for a repeat. After a veritable ratings fiesta (for it) in a GOP Debate special last week that scored a series high 1.6 rating, Rock Center returned to its woefully rated reality with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Late-night results are below the primetime data.

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.
