Note: Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Texans/Jets) was simulcast on the CBS affiliate in Houston. As a result, the CBS numbers may be a bit inflated and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

NBC was number one with adults 18-49, while ABC won with total viewers.

On NBC, The Voice scored a 4.7 adults 18-49 rating, up from last week's 4.6 Revolution garnered a 3.1, dipping again from last week's 3.2 among adults 18-49. Your predictions were about right

On CBS, How I Met Your Mother earned a 3.2, down from last week's 3.3 adults 18-49 rating. Partners scored a 2.2, up a tenth from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. 2 Broke Girls garnered a 3.7, up two points from last week's 3.5 among adults 18-49.

Ratings for CBS may be inflated due to local NFL coverage

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

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.

    Gossip .4 .785/.5 .752

    Wow. The 7/10 dropped in Revolution reveals how much of a lead in dependent this show really is. If I have to guess, the last 15 minutes of The Voice were over 5.5+.

  • Ryan30

    Yeah no way partners got a 2.2

  • SimonSays

    Go THE VOICEEE!!!! Who said ratings will drop for the Battles?

  • CrimTV

    Still much higher than Smash was after 4 episodes.

  • KS

    Wow.. Revolution held up good. Hope it stabilizes at this number. I liked yesterdays episode. But I still want quality to be improved.

  • Sam

    DEAD @ “The Voice” increasing for Battle Rounds. This site is going to get ready to have a meltdown. Simon Cowell and Britney fans are on suicide watch again.

  • Dillan

    I’m actually shocked at how bad 90210 and Gossip Girl did. We know GG is ending but I think this is 90210’s last season too.

    Weird because 90210 was rating very well last season.

  • CrimTV

    90210’s final season unfortunately me thinks :(

  • meller

    Damn, Hart of Dixie is SO getting renewed for 3rd season.

  • Tom

    Glad Castle rose and good to see Revolution steadied.

  • puta

    i’m very disspaoint Gossip Girl Rating, i expected more

  • rob60990

    Castle beat DWTS? Guess it was bound to happen.

  • DK

    It’s funny how the talk about The Voice burning due to the battle rounds turned out. 4.7 is I guess the highest rating this season and it will probably get adjusted up a tenth too, as always.

  • CrimTV

    Really hope Arrow still premieres high

  • meller

    Yay for Castle!

  • Ricardo

    Say what you will but NBC is a Monday BEAST. Remember when CBS was giving hell last fall? Now it’s NBC’s turn.

  • Rachel

    90210’s last season finale got a 0.4 I believe. I’m not at all shocked by this rating. I’m interested in how Arrow performs tonight.
