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.

You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.

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.

    “Revolution is a joke, if people LOVED this show , why did Terra Nova die?
    Revolution is an arm of Obama what would happen if Obama NOT re-elected..Guns outlawed; an Obamaesque figure in Giancarlo Espisito”

    I don’t even know…

    There was an article written about this

  • Claire

    I’d be interested in knowing the breakdown for Revolution by quarter hour.

  • Brian

    I’m scared for Hawaii Five-0!!! It’s such a good show but a 1.9 is not good! I hope it goes up next week or this just might be the final season :(

  • Petar Ivanov

    @Cmahone
    I believe there is manipulation going on, I know that they usually wait for 3 days worth of DVR’s to compile TRUE ratings

    OR may be manipulation is going in your head……..

  • Petar Ivanov

    Guns outlawed; an Obamaesque figure in Giancarlo Espisito

    That is hilarious….seriously what is common between Giancarlo Espisito – great Emmy award level actor and some political figure, even president of usa? You don’t think that Giancarlo Espisito is secret CIA agent masked as actor right? Its just sound crazy to me.

  • Trey

    Revolution will trend downwards in the coming weeks just like The Event. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were down to 2.9 or 3.0 by next week.

    @Brian who said:

    H5o was in decline and last season. As for Castle. But Castle was in 4season h5o in second. When dramas start decline in second seasons is never good for their future. unfortunately almost all sci-fi/fantasy dramas drop in second seasons. Now h5o was surprise that from. Fir example Once upon a time drop is much more expected from me.

    “I’m scared for Hawaii Five-0!!! It’s such a good show but a 1.9 is not good! I hope it goes up next week or this just might be the final season”

    Complete nonsense.

    Hawaii Five-0 has already been sold into syndication on TNT. It will be on the CBS schedule at least 2 more seasons.

  • Petar Ivanov

    The voice was renew.

  • eridapo

    @Bill,

    Even at 1.9? Wow….

    So for the cancellation bear anything with a 1.9 and a syndication deal is a lock for renewal…

  • Tony ^_^

    So strange to see CBS average less than a 3.0 and 10 million viewers.

    My brother watched “How I Met Your Mother”, turned the TV off, and then watched “2 Broke Girls” and didn’t watch TV afterwards. Odd how his viewing patterns reflect the actual ratings of the comedies. Lol… xD

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @Cmahone ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS?! Hahaha any excuse to hate on Obama.

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @petar Isn’t he Black? All Black people are the same, dontcha know? /sarcasm

  • Dennis

    Five-0 after CSI: Miami: the next sun-state-series will cancel?

  • Nicco

    I want 2BG to be adjusted up! Love that show, for the rest of the showz, I don’t really care. I don’t watch them. Sad to see a reality show win the night, they all should just, not be on TV any more…in other words die! Hahah

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @cmahone Why are you replying to yourself?

  • Lisa

    DKD, thanks for taking the time to reply. Will keep it number specific from now on.

  • Percysowner

    @Cmahone

    “Revolution is a joke, if people LOVED this show , why did Terra Nova die?”

    Because they are two different shows? And Revolution isn’t promising dinosaurs then not delivering?

    “Revolution is an arm of Obama what would happen if Obama NOT re-elected..Guns outlawed; an Obamaesque figure in Giancarlo Espisito”

    Wow! All black people look the same to you right? Go hide under that rock you crawled out from under.

  • Percysowner

    @Trey

    Revolution will trend downwards in the coming weeks just like The Event. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were down to 2.9 or 3.0 by next week.

    And NBC will still be happy with that, especially if H-50 doesn’t rebound.

  • Babygate

    Castle beat H5O. Outstanding! It was easily the best premiere I’ve seen in a long time. This show just keeps gettineg better and better. NBC is killing the competition with The Voice. That’s all they have, and sports. Their scripted programming is always low. I’m glad Revolution is doing so well. I will catch up on it later. When is ABC going to pull the plug on DWTS? They keep ranking in the demo. And tonight they are doing two hours? It must get a lot of advertising money.
