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.

    Yikes, awful night for CW.

  • Dani

    What has happened to DWTS this season? I haven’t payed much attention to ratings in the past few months but its really plummeting and the show skews super old. Is it in any danger? It’s actually gotten very stale IMO.

    CBS is still doing well but my NBC has really rebounded this season. Revolution is not a bad show.

  • Eridapo

    @Peter Ivanov

    I do not disagree with you about Revolution and Smash, but there is no denying that 7/10 of the people left the show at the half hour.

    I think there might be an adjustment with Revolution, and it will adjust to a 3.0. Those early numbers are just too inflated by the Voice Lead-in.

    The quarter hours would be helpful to see…


    Damn Damn the real success story of the entire fall is the Voice. This show even went up during the battle rounds. What a great show last night too. I have to say adding the steal made these rounds so much better. Before they were so dull and boring. Now they are fun and energetic. Is it me or the coaches chemistry on fire this season? Its reminding me of early American Idol judges chemistry. It just is on fire.

    Also kudos to CBS with 2 Broke Girls its growing in this timeslot and has young demos. 2 Broke Girls and Mike/Molly seem to be a good combo IMO. Its clear How I met Your Mother should be ending this season. I think the writers need to start crafting the series finale this year. Its been eight years.

    DWTS grew a bit. I have to say I feel bad for Drew Lachey. He was so good with Cheryl in season 2 and won the trophy. I don’t if its been almost seven years since his last run but he has absolutely ZERO CHEMISTRY with Anna. They are a total mismatch. I think Drew and Helio are going tonight. I think Bristol will be here one more week.

    @Kate how has bones been dead for 2 years? i love the show, and its def not dead.

  • Dave

    The CW is gonna be hurting with Tribune’s contuining feud with Cablevision. Until that gets fixed, expect these awful numbers as the norm.

  • Sid


    Like you suggested, a repeat of Bang Theory, or even 2.5 Men would be better until the arrival of Rules.

  • @puta
  • Sarah

    Bones :( Hopefully, it doesn’t get adjusted down.

  • senor chang

    Down a tenth from last week? Yeah, that bodes TERRIBLY for Revolution.
    The drop at the half hour mark is still quite high, but even if the audience at 10:30 is the core audience, Revolution can stay in the high 2s in the future and anchor a night. NBC still has to be thrilled with that number.

    Neat rises for CBS, too bad that the numbers are inflated. Looks like Five 0 might be building an audience again?

  • Eridapo

    @ fringewillget5seasons

    Shouldn’t you change your name to “fringegot5seasons”

  • ingmarhappy

    I hope Bones holds steady the coming episodes ; around the 2.0-2.4 , otherwise I fear this might be the final season.

    I actually liked the Gossip Girl premiere. A lot better than season 5. To bad the numbers are so bad! Ah well, its the final season. But 90210…auch.

  • madbengalsfan85

    FOX, just kill TMD already…a .9 is just embarrassing.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Think CBS ratings are mistake. Now i see why. They will be down at least 0.3-0.4 in demo. Partners almost kill smash hit 2BG. Good job CBS. Good job.

  • Marc

    The voice was pretty addicted last night… I love the STEAL PART, that’s make it more interesting….

  • a p garcia

    Glad to see Revolution is pretty steady, it onloy went down 0.1.

  • Josh

    90210 and Gossip Girl did terrible… this puts Hart Of Dixie on the renewal track, as well as Supernatural. Interested to see how Arrow does tonight. Hopefully Nikita does well next week.

  • GARebelman

    LOL at the CW. Hart of Dixie and Supernatural are sitting pretty now. Top Model does better than this on Friday!

    The Voice DID make changes to the battle rounds. They gave the option for the coaches to steal people away from the other coaches to make the battle rounds more exciting as that is typically when folks started to tune out.

  • svpike

    Bones is really bad this year. I am sick of the family stuff can we get to cases as full time and not just filler for the family drama part of the show. Maybe I should just bail on it instead of putting myself through it each week.

  • Andrea

    I was bummed to see that the CW is still out in my area. I would have watched Gossip Girl had it actaully been on.

    I missed the note about the football game on CBS last night. I wonder how much it will change the numbers later today.
