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.

Ratings for CBS may be inflated due to local NFL coverage

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.

    Partners and Mob Doctor keep going down but their situations are very different.

    Partners is CBS’s sole comedy this fall, while they have Rules of Engagement waiting in the wings as usual I wouldn’t count the series out yet and especially with the upcoming cancellation of Made in Jersey, I don’t see 2 cancellations for CBS (Vegas and Elementary will obviously get full seasons) Made in Jersey will be axed sometime this month while Partners will probably air all of its produced episodes.

    The Mob Doctor should have been pulled by now. Why it hasn’t been who knows, maybe FOX doesnt want to have the first cancellation, maybe they just want to use it as a Bridge until The Following premieres. Who knows the reason but the fact is, The Mob Doctor wont get a full season and may not return November 5. If it somehow does return November 5 it may be pulled or moved to Saturdays. This situation seems odd but looks liek FOX and CBS are playing a cat and mouse game between Mob Doctor and Made in Jersey between which will be cancelled first.

    This is the longest that the networks have gone without cancelling a series since 2007 when CW made the first cancellation Online Nation on October 17, 2007.

    I’m a big Gossip Girl fan, and I had no clue it was on last night. I’ll definitely be watching next week!

  • I like this show

    Haven’t watched last night Revolution yet but its a show that has me so far. Leave the lead alone you guys say she is too whiny she’s a young girl that has had everyone taken from here and has a heart her clashing with her uncle was to be expected imo. LOL Mob Doctor FOX really thought it was going to work? Just replace House with a random doctor that owes the Mob lol. Hopefully the Following is good because there isn’t one show I watch on FOX now that isn’t a cartoon.

    I have a little soft spot for Animal practice lol i didnt watch last episode but I find the show ok can’t be much worse than most of their other comedies other than Parks and Rec.

  • Brandy

    Alexis’s, also GG & 90210 are older so they’re ratings are expected to be lower, but Nikita a second year show getting the same ratings as a four & five yr. old show is pathetic.GG & 90210 were renewed cause they had/have good women demo,good dvr(Nikita dosent),and through ITunes,Netflix,DVD/merchandise sales,syndication(GGs on Style & I wouldn’t be surprised if 90210 gets a deal ), & Mark Pedowitz said last spring in a interview that the established show helped keep the network afloat the last couple seasons without hits.90210 was the fourth/fifth highest rated show last season. Nikita was below it and in May VD,SPN,HOD were the three highest rated shows.

    Dear The CW

    Why embarass yourself further by claiming to be a network TV channel, when you can move to cable and actually fit in amongst the other channels with your numbers.

    If you enjoy being beaten by the bigger cable networks on a daily basis, there is something wrong.

    With love.

    The End.

    Revolution finally seems to have stabalized i think it will tay around a 2.9 – 3.5

  • The End

    Hope my sense of humor doesn’t offend anyone. Anyway 2 Broke Girls was actually kind of funny. Han pulling out a gun and stopping the guy from robbing his shop was quite funny, a midget Korean talking gangster like.

    Proper comedy there. Okay the toilet humor like peeing oneself isn’t needed, twice even with Caroline and Han, plus the jokes but eh, this episode was pretty good.

  • halloween

    CW was supposed to have delayed premieres to boost ratings…how that working out

  • Dawk

    @ The End, I liked the last two episodes of 2BG they’ve actually gotten back to the basics in that show. It hadn’t been good since December of last year and now they’ve put the focus back on their work life which is what always made this show good.

    Another show that’s growing on me is Partners I agree with a lot of the people on here touting that it has improved and it has.

  • Percysowner

    2015-2016 – The CW’s final season (expected).

    I think you may be right, but if it is so, then I expect them to try and get Supernatural to that last year, barring a huge drop in ratings. Supernatural makes them money on Netflix, DVD’s and international sales. If they are going out of business why not keep a show that is a revenue stream going instead of trying new shows that will never pay back their costs? Just a guess.

  • The End


    I agree. Much of the shows best comedy efforts comes from the workplace, okay a lot of it is directed towards Han, and Oleg(And his girl). But hey it works, it brings the other characters into the mix and they play off each other to really make the scene work.

    The Cupcake stuff too. They went back to basics by having them focus entirely on trying to sell their stuff to Martha stewart, including the secretary biting a cupcake with a pearl inside lol.

    I can easily see this show having a long successful run. 5+ seasons.

  • MoHasanie

    @The End

    Actually, Han pulled out a taser.
    It was a funny episode, but there was no real story. It was like 2 different stories in 1 episode. Like, first someone tried to rob them, and then afterwards, they went to the cinema.
    Also, I didn’t really get the peeing thing either.

  • Brandy

    Kavyn, I said it May, but honestly and realistically, I’m expecting a 0.4,0.3 cause GG,ANTM,90210 ratings are pretty much exactly what thier finale ratings were,,& cause it seems almost all broadcast networks are down and it seems like the delayed premieres to boost ratings isn’t working this week so far and cause a lot of viewers weren’t happy with the quality/writing/plot lines of last season.

  • The End


    Ah, looked like a gun to me. Then again I was watching this whilst tired so you’re probably right.

    Yeah the peeing stuff is gross, yeah Caroline was ‘scared’ but was it really needed? The guy threatening them didn’t even show his gun, he could of been bluffing and using his hand in a creative way with his jacket.

    They pretend not to care much about Han but you can kinda tell they accept him as one of their own, they wouldn’t care what he’s doing otherwise.

  • POI

    I want Revolution to get much better ratings because its so damn good i dont know how people dont watch this show its so amazing the best new show this season so far, im hoping arrow comes near the awesomeness of Revolution and Save Wednesday for the CW.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Stick a fork in 90210 – it’s done…

    As I suspected, Revolution goes down…but slowly…so far. Last night’s episode wasn’t particularly interesting. A lot of action, no real movement. One character killed off. I expect another drop next week, possibly bigger.

  • Liam

    Ok, Castle did good last night. A Season high and it grew out of DWTS. Hopefully the ratings are not adjusted downwards. And hopefully the show can remain above a 2.0 for the next few weeks.

    GG and 90210 where do I start. Dreadful. Love both the shows, GG a bit more but I think 90210 will be joining GG in the final season department this year. And thankfuly GG will be ending this year. These numbers and ratings are dreadful. If the show drops next week I kind of think the show might not hit the 1 million mark for the finale!!!

  • The End


    Hey, saw this from an official CBS clip of the episode.
    Look around the 2 minute mark, it looks like a gun in Hans hand.

  • Tabitha

    Revolution is steady great. :)

  • Nick

    Yawn. Not much to talk about today. Gossip Girl tanked. What’s the surprise?

    Nice for Castle & Revolution.
