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.

NOTE: All national ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.


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.

    I really want to see how Arrow does tomorrow night but it appears that Wednesday’s and Thursday’s are going to be CW’s only bright spot. The rest should have been cancelled last year with an overhaul of the network.
    So far, Revolution and Last Resort are my only two must see’s out of the batch of new shows this year. Thankfully, I’ll at least get a year out of Revolution and hope for serious stabilization, better yet, improved story ratings.

    Looooooooove This i Agree


    The Voice might be a ratings succces, but
    the goal of the show is to create a
    successfull artist, and the first two
    winners never went anyway, i think
    season 1 winner’s album debut at like 35
    and droped off right after. which makes
    the show pointless, and i dont even think
    they get a million dollar contract.”

    The X Factor and American Idol creates Starts and no Flops.


    @ One

    Are you watching Mob Doc? It seems like a show “One” would like. Dude, I’m seriously hooked!

  • TheVoiceOfCanada

    Keep reaching @RyanCanada

    Everyone, including the contestants know THE VOICE is about the coaches. Thats why people watch and continue to watch… creating a ‘star’? Well thats just a bonus this day in age after the 10 year run of Idol. If everyone followed your logic then no one would be tuned into this season. clearly the viewing public disagrees with you.

    Try again.

    And still even with 3.0 will be only 10 pm show that hits 3s. Look in CBS 10 pm shows. They premiere with 2.5 the most. CSI and Vegas. Elementary with 3.1 and than fdrop at 2.5. Even promoted like crazy Nashville WITH best possible lead-in MF will be hard to premiere with 3s in my opinion.

    That said, great for Revoltuion (and NBC).

    3.4 to 3.2 to 3.1 is stabilizing.

    Though it might still be inflated by the huge Voice lead-in.

    Speaking of which, NICE @ Voice. A 4.7 AFTER blind auditions?

    Way to go. It might even beat The Big Bang Theory this week to become #2 (#1 if ModFam doesn’t air).

    @Steven is spamming. Please block him.

    I was shocked by the ratings for 90210 and Gossip Girl and then I have been looking on message boards and talking amongst friends and many people didn’t even know they premiered last night. I know increased competition is another reason but I didn’t know about Hart of Dixie premiering last week either and I like that show. If i don’t watch the CW regularly i kind of forget about the line up

  • coolioni

    I never have and never will like any of these reality type singing and talent shows.
    to me they are just garbage TV. But they do get incredible rating and must be very cheap to produce compared to a scripted show.

    I really wish that reality type TV was never invented!

  • Remote Patrolled

    Why does it have to be an EITHER / OR battle between The Voice and X Factor.

    The Voice is huge and will continue to run and run for seasons to come.

    X Factor is a smaller hit but it’s still Fox’s number 1 Fall show by a long shot. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon either.

  • sally

    the only show i watch on monday like is hawaii 50 on network tv

  • ReallyTired

    Revolution did just fine.

    It won it’s timeslot. What else you want? And has almost as many viewers as ‘Mike & Molly’. That’s a hit on any network.

    I wonder what NY ratings were, given the fact that the Yankee playoffs were on TBS, and MNF on ESPN had a Jets home game.

  • Poweranimals

    Wow @ the CW. These numbers are just terrible. There’s just no way around it. I’m almost afraid to see how Arrow will do.

  • Jamie

    9O21O’s premiere was an extremely solid last night. I wasn’t expecting much but I enjoyed it more than anything in season 4.

    Didn’t really expect a boost for Gossip Girl.

    How much impact would cablevision have? I’ve never heard of it, so it can’t that big…

  • Pepper

    Gossip Girl is a joke. I don’t care if it was the CW’s “flagship” – it still should have been cancelled.

  • Terry

    Why do people keep saying that Castle will adjust down? Normally DWTS had higher ratings than Castle, so a downward adjustment due to DWTS overrunning may make sense, but last night, Castle had rated higher than its lead-in, so why would it make any sense that Castle will get adjusted down?

    And while I’ve been watching Revolution, I keep getting this feeling I’ve watched this before. I finally figured it out that Revolution reminded me of the Walking Dead, but instead of zombies, you have the militia and the complete lack of electricity. The last couple of episodes of Revolution are reminiscent of the first season of The Walking Dead especially with all the flashbacks.

  • ReallyTired

    @Jamie —- Cablevision is the primary cable system in NYC and the suburbs. The have not carried WPIX (The CW) for 6 weeks. It’s impact on the ratings MUST BE HUGE.

  • DougF

    @Peter ivanov

    lol. That was not Kripke’s best work. First you can’t even claim it because by your own admission you have never seen it. So how can you even have an opinion?

  • Gina

    Im happy Bones is staying above 2. That’s all I asked for in the crazy night! 8 year old show, keeps doing it! ;)

    Glad to see revolution didn’t fall much. I think this is the first episode I actually really liked. Was holding judgement on the series.

    I actually kind of like Partners. Lol.

    DWTS and the Voice will get adjusted up. Like always. Voice is just a monster.

    CBS will get knocked down b/c of football. Hope not too much. Especially for 5-0

    I think Castle will get adjusted down.
