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

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.

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.

    Hey, there’s nothing wrong with The L.A. Complex… it’s a great show.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @KS who said:
    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.

    ME: Think in season 2 Miles must be the man. He is real “hero” on the show.(although he and now is the man) I ususaly don’t like family drama(too soapy for me) but this time was amazing. May be because episode was so epic. I am excepting more deaths too. Not sure about Danny, but think Kripke can kill everyone not name Miles on the show in the end of the season. He really have balls. Not many people will kill major character and risk make fans angry. Everything goes so fast and with such suspense, action and drama. I like it.

    @ Peter Ivanov – “Maybe because episode was so epic.”

    You set the bar pretty freakin’ low don’t you?

  • Freyja

    Ouch for the CW, guess no one really cares about 90210 or GG..

    Castle will drop a bit in the finales, they always do..

  • The End

    @Leoben Conoy

    Didn’t you get the memo? James Cameron raised the bar significantly. Okay you probably won’t get that if you didn’t watch the latest South Park episode.

  • Yo

    90210 and GG are dying and although I’ve been a 90210 fan since the second year, I don’t care if they cancel the show. As for GG, the show was dead a long time ago. Dixie is so getting renewed.

  • thesnowleopard

    Is it ten? The last I heard, it was ten at the most, but no one was entirely sure what the actual number was.

  • were123

    Wow, H50 is recovering every week! It started the season with 1.8, then 2 and now a 2.2. At this rate it’ll be back on 3s or high 2s.
    2 Broke Girls seems to be doing fine, a 3.7 is really high and up from last week :D
    As for HIMYM, I hope it’s the final season, the story can’t stretch any longer.
    Mob Doctor is asking out loud to be put out of it’s missery, and so Partners, even if it rose a litte.
    Revolution will most likely keep falling, but it’s on N-B-C, where only 2 others shows (scripted shows) pull 2s, so it’s the safer network to have low rating (although of course Revolution can still be considered high rated)

  • tahina

    I tried Revolution, it has the most boring leading actors. Who did the casting? Billy Burke was a bad ass in The Closure and can’t picture him as a hero on this new show. :(

  • Charlie Sheen

    I know CBS aired the Houston Texans game so I wasn’t going to comment on the network but I wanted to comment on Partners. BTW, the Texans play a very good brand of football, I like the way that team plays the game and they deserve their 5-0 record. They’ll be on national television again this Sunday on NBC for the first time on the program against the Packers who I’m hoping goes 2-4.

    Anyways Partners, I think even when finals comes in probably will stabilize close to what they got last week which wasn’t bad. I think the show has already leveled off and its actually improved pretty quickly since the pilot. Like I said before i know people don’t think before they comment but I think CBS is going to be better off keeping Partners in the long run than they will cancelling it. I do think they switch Mike & Molly with it though.

    Same ol’ story every week with NBC and ABC as The Voice has clearly crushed that show in the demo and their both on an even level in viewers. Revolution is still holding up pretty well but I’m not sure if its a self-starter though so they might have to continue protecting it. Castle continues to be solid every week.

    With FOX I was pretty sick to my stomach when I learned that Ben & Kate and Mindy Project got full seasons. It told me right there just like with the Raising Hope full season order a couple of years back that they have set their standards dangerous low on that network for their comedies. If you’re going to give those two losers a full season then at least give the better show Mob Doctor a chance to grow and put it on Fridays with Fringe.

    I think this is normally where I’m supposed to make fun of The CW but Gossip Girl had a more successful run than I originally thought it was going to have it went 6 seasons and got a syndication deal with Style. 90210 has been making a lot of money over the years for CBS. Again it doesn’t really matter what the ratings are on this network if their making enough money overseas that’s all that matters, hence why Secret Circle didn’t comeback with higher numbers.

    @ Leoben Conoy

    LOL…. Petar Ivanov likes his shows, and he will defend them no matter what. Just don’t knock Person of Interest, or you’ll face his wrath.

  • Petar Ivanov


    CBS 8:30-11 pm shows will drop between 0.2 and 0.4. Read.

  • Mae

    OUCH, CW! Just…ouch.

    I think the CW ratings will be really interesting this year.

    I don’t know if it has been mentioned here at all, but here is an interesting bit of Supernatural news. Mark Pedowitz was recently up in Vancouver where Supernatural films and took (at least) the two leads out for dinner. Apparently the talk is for SPN to go 10 seasons..a la Smallville. I think that says a lot about the faith that the CW has in their line-up this year. They obviously are not anticipating a whole lot of break out successes if middle-of-the-road SPN is looking good for 2 more seasons if ratings hold around 0.7-0.8.

  • Eridapo

    @ Leoben Conoy

    Awesome Name…. BSG still one of my favorite shows of all time.

  • Petar Ivanov


    This time you are right my friend. But hey nobody can be wrong all the time(joke, smile)

  • Eridapo

    @ were123

    Hate to break it to you, but that sentence with the red font tells you to expect adjustment for the CBS lineup due to Football. CBS numbers include Football numbers in Houston

  • Petar Ivanov

    ps at Eridapo

    Think you are bigger PoI fan than me but you just hiding it, not sure why.

  • Eridapo

    @Petar Ivanov

    LOL. I wont lie I do love POI.

  • Bob

    I can’t believe people. When American Idol was doing great last year (certainly down but not bad), people were saying, “Die already…we have had enough of Reality” but now that the Voice is doing well, people are in love with reality again. I thought we wanted all regular shows and not reality. This site and the people on it are bi-polar in their thoughts with regard to this subject.

  • Christina

    … It does impact the ratings, because fans of The L.A. Complex, who wanted to watch the show, but, couldn’t because of Cablevision… they dropped The CW.
