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. Mike & Molly notched a 3.1, also up two tenths from last week's 2.9 adults 18-49 rating. Hawaii Five-0 scored a 2.2, up two tenths from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. Ratings for CBS may be inflated due to local NFL coverage

On ABC,  Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars was even with last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Castle earned a 2.2, up three tenths from last week's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

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.

    Fortunately, Revolution got the full season pickup so we don’t have to panic when we see it finishing 3rd for the timeslot. True, the question is a season 2 but much like Heroes and Last Resort I don’t see Revolution really having a raison d’etre beyond one season anyway, so if they get to tell a complete story rather than one that gets cut off in 13 episodes I’ll be happy.

  • Tim

    Wow. The difference between demo and audience numbers for “Dancing” is HUGE!!!

    What’s the average age of a viewer of that show? 105? LOL!

  • Chris

    bluejay72, you have serious mental issues. Seek help.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @Revolution is holding up quiet nice, who had thought that

    ME, KS, Dan, DAN C(think that was his nickname) and many others.

    Before the season i said that Revolution, Elementary and Nashville will be 3 best new dramas wich will take Once, Person of interest and Revenge places.
    So far so good…………for ME. Almost no way Nashville not to be best new ABC drama.

  • martin

    The CW Network should be deleted and ‘become boring and ugly! Stephen Amell in Arrow often recite them half naked to attract female audience, the Canadian actor is not ‘a good actor (piece of wood).

  • TimsDale4ever

    With each of these rating posts that has a picture from some scene of that night’s show, why don’t they tell you who’s in the photo and what show it is? Who’s in this one — the guy’s gorgeous — I might would want to see it but I have no clue which show it is. Kinda stupid if you ask me.

  • Kavyn

    So are any other Revolution viewers pissed about how they handled the death of Maggie?

    They virtually gave her nothing in terms of story in her first three episodes (the first time we got any emotion out of her was when the power came on and she got to see her kids). Then they decide to promote the following episode saying “SOMEONE WILL DIE” and in episode 4 they practically dedicate the episode to her.

    I mean, talk about writing 101…

  • Leoben Conoy

    Well I tried to hang in there. But four episodes in and I am out.

    Revolution is just too stupid for its own good. And Charlie is the most annoying character on television since Elizabeth Mitchell’s son on V.

    I am sure it will dip in the ratings week after week. But it will still managed to get renewed because apparantly all the people who watch The Voice are too lazy or too clueless to change the channel.

    I mean who would have thought it! Apparantly all the ships ever made on the east coast in the history of mankind, have all been destroyed! So getting to England, would be like trying to get to the moon.

    Yep that makes sense.

    Show plays out like a Tea Party wet dream anyways.

  • Lisa

    I gave Revolution 3.5 episodes on the DVR, just can’t get into it, and trust me I wanted to. Just too many things (plot holes) I can’t get past.

    I love the 10pm block on Mondays, find it fascinating, especially that there is room for three shows to be relatively successful in the same time-slot. I do think that by mid-season RVN will be settled into the 2.5-2.8 range.

    I just hope Castle settles into a nice 2.1-2.3 range average for the season. Compared to other 10pm (and ABC) shows, and scripted dramas that would be VERY successful indeed.

    @Terry: there a bunch of christina aguilera fans on here now that britney is on x factor. i guess they still think it’s 1999 lol

    Just left click the image and get the URL of the image and it’s in the file name. This one is from 9O21O’s Season 5 premiere.

  • TomJH

    How is the CW a viable entity? I find it extremely hard to believe that having the CW is good for CBS and Warner’s bottom line over all.

  • Hillary

    Does it matter in terms of ratings (especially for the CW) that Cablevision in the tri-state area has eliminated the CW network for its viewers while they negotiate with Tribune for carrying fees?

  • thesnowleopard

    @TSC Fan
    It was already getting 0.4s last season, in its first season, in the second-best slot of the week. What makes you think either TSC or Ringer would have done anything but plunge even further? I’m no fan of Gossip Girl, but the financial logic made sense when it already had five seasons for Netflix and syndication to bring it back for a final 13 and dump two seriously underperforming new shows.

    Nikita was already doing poorly at the end of the last season. Since then, it’s been moved to SPN’s old death slot and its repeats have been plumbing new depths. Stop hoping for the impossible and pray it does well enough to survive even on Fridays. The likelihood it will go back up is exceedingly, since it never has before.

  • chgo Mob

    The Mob Doctor will get pick up> You heard it here first.

  • KS


    I am quite happy with what happened on Revolution and I think it was handled fine. I think we will know more about her from Flash backs of Charlie or her brother, even though she is dead in the real time. I don’t usually like deep dissection of characters on any show.(Supernatural is currently suffering from that)

    But I think, Miles is becoming a fatherly-figure and there is good chemistry between Charlie and Miles. I am excepting Danny’s death by the end of the season.

    Family drama was simply amazing. I loved the group hug. I can sense Kripke. I want to more about Militia and black out though.

  • Petar Ivanov


    Wrong. RVN with DVR numbers BEAT NCIS. 10 pm is most DVR hour at least for now.


    By the way where are thursdays DVR numbers…..thanks.

  • Ashley

    @thesnowleopard Correction, GG didn’t get a final 13 pickup, it got a final 10 episode pickup. 9 episodes left.

  • Adam

    I personally think that if the voice wouldn’t air in the fall that 90210 and Gossip Girls ratings would be higher. It’s practically the same target group. So I think the DVR ratings will be higher for 90210
