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.

On FOX,  Bones earned a 2.0, down a tenth from last week's 2.1 among adults 18-49. The Mob Doctor scored  a 0.9, down a tenth from last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

On The CW, the premiere of  90210 earned a 0.5, down from last season's 0.9 premiere rating. Gossip Girl premiered to a 0.4, down from last year's 0.7 premiere 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.

    Good for the mob doctor XD lol, 2 broke girls even without the inflation will be a beast and will absolutely be renewed

  • Eridapo

    Good news for Castle and H50 at 10PM. Both shows have stabilized, and I’m sure if it were not for the Voice boosting Revolution all three shows would be around 2/10 of each other.

    If anything, this proves that for the most competitive 10PM slot all shows are doing admirably.

    Revolution’s 3.1 is definitely only being held up by the Voice. The 7/10 drop at the half hour should be alarming, but it still beats anything else on NBC.

    The farce needs to end. Cancel the Mob Doctor.

    And replace it w/ the Mod Doctor (don’t worry, no one else will get it either)

  • fringewillget5seasons

    LMAO @ The CW! How sad for them. Should have given both shows the axe honestly. CBS lineup clawing their way back into it. DWTS is sad and Mob Doctor will either tie or be below Fringe this week – how’s that for sad?

  • David

    Lol at mob doctor , 2 broke girls is a beast

  • AFW

    Glad to see Castle up, still not good, but at least an improvement from last week’s 1.9

  • Sid

    Oh and I’m really shocked at 9O21O’s performance as I expected at least a 0.7

    I didn’t have much expectations for Gossip Girl, however, with it being the final season, I expected a boost for it as well but a 0.4 on a Monday is just bad.

  • AustinGriffith

    Wow Castle! That’s great! Love seeing a rise! Especially because it did better then DWTS.
    Keep it going.

  • bluejay72

    For those who said the ratings for THE VOICE will drop after the Blind Auditions, slap you!!! THE VOICE slays! Eat that, haters! THE VOICE is here to stay and continues to RULE!!!!!!! :)

    THE VOICE is #1!!!

    Bwahaha @ the skeptics! We proved you wrong many, many times and The Voice ratings continue to embarrass you!!!

  • Brandon

    Revolution is on its way to 2.5 by episode 13 as I predict.

  • John A

    H5O and the rest of CBS will adjust down. See the red text at the top. Dont celebrate yet.

  • Tony

    And here I thought the CW couldn’t do worse than last season. I guess good news for fans of all other shows on the CW.

    And FOX REALLY does not want to have the first canceled show of the season.

  • ToXiX


    Realistically what would perform better in that slot.
    Big Bang Theory repeats are out of the question.
    Rules of Engagement is 2.3-2.7 territory, which isn’t much of an improvement.
    If Partners 2.2 isn’t adjusted down it may continue to rise. The show isn’t bad in my opinion but I would have preferred How To Be A Gentlemen Season 2 to Partners in the first place.

  • Kate

    How does Bones stay above a 2 each week? This show was dead 2 seasons ago. People watching are clearly in need of a brain. I loath this show. The only saving grace is that this will be its final season. I hope it goes put limping.

  • RyanCanada

    OMG @ 90210 and GG? Wow. im just shocked, and i hope Bones adjusted up, i love that show, i want it renewed, castle was so good last night aswell

  • Andrea

    Very happy to see Castle rise this week. It even beat DWTS! Monday night is very competitive at 10pm. if it wasn’t for The Voice I think Revolution would be on par with H50 and Castle. It looks like things are starting to stablize for now. :)

  • MoHasanie

    Still great for The Voice and it didn’t fall even though auditions are over. Did they change the format this year to make it more interesting for people to watch?
    Revolution is very steady and that is surprising. Its falling every week, but in very small amounts.

    ABC had a bad night, but its nothing new. I think for the first time, Castle grew out of DWTS! But it will probably be adjusted down.

    HIMYM and 2BG did fine. 2BG is probably going to adjusted down. Yesterday’s episodes seemed a little strange. Like, there was no main plot, but just a number of different stories all in one episode. Didn’t make sense.

  • svpike

    Partners keeps getting better and better (show not the ratings is what i am talking about). Its very funny!!

  • Adien

    Nice to see CBS slowing hitting its stride after three weeks. Hopefully no major adjustments downwards!
    RoE will be on sooner rather than later but I think CBS will give it until the beginning of sweeps at least to see if those ratings tick up

    How many mid season dramas does CBS have? Jersey is also most likely not going to make it for sweeps!
