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

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.

    Where are the Hart of Dixie haters now? Double the viewership that Gossip Girl got. DOUBLE. Imagine how well Hart of Dixie would be doing if it hasn’t been saddled with that awful lead in all last season. Now I’m just waiting for the CW to announce 90210s final season as well.

  • John A

    Wow disaster for CW. Just like fridays will be.

  • Amber

    Well the cw doesn’t just look at ratings. Hulu views are what saved Hart of Dixie last season. 90210 dvr ratings have a huge increase in the past.

  • Petar Ivanov


    Best episode so far. Kripke best eposode as writer/showrunner i think.(although not watch supernatural)

  • concrete

    revolution was horrendous yesterday. i turned off the tv after 30 mins lol

  • Tony ^_^

    “The Voice” went up. Odd.

    I was going to say, “Great for CBS! Their shows went up! :D” But remembered the red text.

    On ABC it looks like “Dancing With the Stars” has somewhat stabilized. I was certain that it would fall week to week…

    Congratulations FOX! Your first show to fall below a 1.0! And it was on a MONDAY! :o

    Looks like “90210” and “Gossip Girl” are both dead. Either that or The CW will be in bigger trouble this year…

  • Kyle

    Also CBS will get adjusted down.

    I forgot the Jets/Brown game was on yesterday. Houston is a big market so I can see some minor adjustments down for CBS.

  • CrimTV


    Very doubtful that CW will announce 90210’s final season now after airing just 1 episode of it’s 5th season!

  • Albert

    Wow the voice “steal” works!!! Ratings rise!

  • RyanT

    HIMYM probably won’t get adjusted down too much right? The game started at 8:30, yes? Anyone care to confirm?

  • ivan

    WOW 90210 0.5 that’s horrible if this doesnt turn out to be final season the next defanatly will be I’m really surprised i did’t excpect less then 0.7 WOW

  • Sid

    Hawaii Five-0 slowly inching up week to week :D

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, CBS needs to suck it up and they need to pull Partners now!

    Look at how good their other Monday comedies are flowing and how badly Partners is performing.

    They’re lucky that 2BG is such a self starter than it can build from a crappy 2.2 and still manage a healthy 3.7

  • KS

    @Petar Ivanov

    Definitely not. There are better emotional episodes on Supernatural, like All Hell Breaks Loose, A Very Supernatural Christmas, In My Time of Dying, Point of No Return etc.

    Revolution still needs to improve in quality. At least, we have an idea where the show is going now. And yeah, family drama seems to be working.

  • Crysti

    The Voice ratings are always high for the first battle round-just wait until it drags on, just like every year.

  • Leondre

    Revolution was better last night. CBS from 8:30 to 11:00 looks inflated

  • soso

    the voice is doing really good!

  • TheVoiceOfCanada

    To all the Flopney Spears/Flop Factor fans… Who’s got their feet in their mouth right now?! LMAO The Voice us unstoppable this season.

    I’ve watched all 3, start to finish and this is BY FAR the best so far. I cant put my finger on it but it’s just better. The editing, the coaches, the talent, the production quality… its all A+ this season. And last nights episode was effin great again. This show is going nowehere.

    Haters just gotta deal with it.

  • John A

    Lol Mob Doctor. You know your a flop when Fringe is beating you. FOX should move Fringe to monday. It might get mid 1.s which would improve that slot.

  • Just My Opinion

    The Voice reminds me of Two and a Half Men, both are crappy shows that get huge ratings!

  • Petar Ivanov


    Well not agree my friend. Yes the voice lead in help RVN but with 30% better the voice lead in smash was 2.8 in its second episode. So the voice help but don’t make RVN best new show for the season.

    ps Even RVN promo for The Plague Dogs was epic:
