Note: Last night’s Monday Night Football game was simulcast on the ABC affiliate in Green Bay. As a result, ABC numbers may be a bit inflated and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

NBC was #1 with adults 18-49, but ABC won with total viewers

On NBC, The Voice scored a 4.3 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 4.7 18-49 rating. Your guesses about it being the highest-rated show of the night were still spot on though. Revolution garnered a 3.5, also down sharply from last week's  4.1 18-49 rating, though this is not an unexpected drop post premiere and NBC has to be pretty happy about it considering it faced original scripted competition on ABC & CBS this week. Your predictions were about right.

CBS' season premiere of How I Met Your Mother earned a 3.4, down from last season's 4.7 adults 18-49 premiere rating. The series premiere of Partners earned a  2.4 adults 18-49 rating. The season premiere of 2 Broke Girls earned a 3.7, down massively from last year's premiere, which earned a 7.1 adults 18-49 rating. However, it should be noted that 2 Broke Girls had the first Two and a Half Men that featured Ashton Kutcher instead of Charlie Sheen as a lead in last year.  That Two and a Half Men drew a whopping 10.7 adults 18-49 rating and helped last year’s premiere of 2 Broke Girls which was on at 9:30p. The premiere of Mike & Molly earned a 3.0 18-49 rating, down from last year's premiere, which earned a 4.8 adults 18-49 rating. Hawaii Five-0 premiered to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating down from last year's 3.4 adults 18-49 rating.

On FOX,  Bones earned a 2.2, down a tenth from last week's 2.3 among adults 18-49. The Mob Doctor went even lower with a 1.3 after last week's 1.5 among adults 18-49.

On ABC, the premiere of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars garnered a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, down from its 14th season premiere, which earned a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating. The season premiere of Castle earned a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating, down from its last season premiere, which earned a 3.2 18-49 rating. It's worth noting again that the ABC affiliate in Green Bay aired the Monday Night Football game in that market, so these numbers may be a tad inflated.

On The CW, The LA Complex  earned a 0.3. down from last week's 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.  A second new episode at 9PM garnered a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating.

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.

    And suddenly Revolution is a 4.7? That can’t be right, though?

  • forg

    Bones did OK given the extra competition. Mob Doctor and the Bear will meet soon

  • Common Anomaly

    Hilarity ensues. Bill Gorman toldja that L.A. Complex would live on in Canada and that he would not be surprised, but that he would be shocked if L.A. Complex aired in the fall season. First day of 2012-2013 season, consider Bill Gorman shocked.

  • Mon

    Not bad for 2 Broke Girls. Give it some time (like TBBT in its first season on Thursday) and it will get higher.

    Yikes H50.

  • fernando

    damn CBS this is not thier year either, both Fox and CBS are low this year, CBS very low they mostly make over 10 million.

  • Gamma626

    Revolution says 4.7 for me right now… that cant be true?

  • Mary

    There’s a typo in the grid. Revolution shouldn’t be 4.7

  • MattM

    AWESOME number for Revolution! YES! Eat it haters.

  • John_M

    @Common_Anomaly

    How many of the real CW shows have had their fall premieres yet?

  • sofaslug

    Good! Die H50!

  • John_M

    AWESOME number for Revolution! YES! Eat it haters.

    Love the laughs

  • Oliver

    CBS will pull Partners after its second episode for RoE. Dead on arrival.

    Great night for NBC.

  • BJ

    H50 should move to Friday Nights if ratings don’t improve for it.

    Partners should get cancelled already.

    I believe BBT re-runs air after HIMYM until ROE comes back.

    2BG and HIMYM are considerably down from their premieres last year as expected but the former did well for a weak lead-in and the latter was on par with S6 Premiere.

    NBC won Monday Night for the first time in like over 10+ years. Castle beats H50 for the first time in the 18-49 rating.

  • Observer

    It says Revolution 4.7! Is that right??!! I thought it was 3.5.

  • ddutchie88

    revolution is 3.5 on my screen

  • MattM

    I am shocked America actually likes a good show like Revolution, this is unprecedented.

  • rob60990

    Revolution TANKED in its half hour 3.7/3.2. :D

    CBS NEVER should have moved Two & A Half Men.

  • Observer

    Nevermind.

  • steve

    Revolution now says 4.7 surely that cant be Right????

  • Holly

    NBC straight up won a night against all originals without football! They deserve to celebrate a little even if we know Revolution will probably fall more in the coming weeks.

    Depending on football adjustments, ABC can’t be too upset. No, the All-Stars version of DWTS didn’t provide much of a boost, but it still did OK and Castle came back solid.

    CBS on the other hand…This doesn’t happen often, but I am utterly shocked by 5-0’s ratings. I wasn’t expecting great numbers, but under a 2.0? Never crossed my mind. CBS has to be in panic mode over that. Aside from that the comedies came out rather low (Partners is not long for this world). Overall, not a good night for them.

    Bones staying over a 2.0, which is great news for FOX. While Mob Doctor continues to make a case for being the first cancelation.
