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.

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.

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.

    Are Starts on The Voice season 1 o 2?

    Mmmmmmmmmm no !

    Idol have many stars as The X Factor sooo
    rating don’t care so much

  • TVWatcher00

    Why are Partners and Mob Doctor still on the air?

  • JAA

    I wonder that too Terry, if DWTS got lower ratings than Castle, why would Castle be adjusted down?

  • Grey

    “Castle” will drop at least 3 to 4 tenth as per usual with “DWTS” run-over into the 10PM hour and MNF. So it will probably end up with a 1.8 demo and a downward adjustment to 8.5 million viewers. :(

  • Percysowner

    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.

    Well as far as NBC is concerned the goal of the show is to be a ratings success and for now it’s doing that in spades. If the winner gets a career good for them, but NBC doesn’t care that much.

    Revolution is looking good, but I will wait for the finals, The Voice ran over a little.

  • bluejay72


    It only hurt you to see the ratings for The Voice RISE!
    Poor you!
    I guess your badmouthing of the show didn’t work.
    You must be a Voice rejectee or a fan of another show whose ratings were badly hurt by the show? You can even be Flop Factor or Flopney’s fan!

    Either way, we don’t care because we’re rejoicing at THE VOICE’s victory while you sourgrape to death! Your opinions don’t even matter because we have NUMBERS to slap right at your face! Ouch! :)

  • Dude

    Castle beating DWTS is hilarious, but it will get adjusted down anyway, maybe even to a 2.0.

  • Grey

    @ JAA

    Because “DWTS” ran over into “Castle’s” time slot. It happens every week and “Castle” is always adjusted down because of it.

  • getmilk

    Bring back The LA Complex!!!

  • Brandy

    Ouch at CW.I was hoping the ratings would be better, but considering thier ratings for the previous seasons finale, not too surprising.Guess this will be 90210s final season too.I thought being GG final season might give a small ratings bump,but it didn’t happen.I bet part of the problem is they premiered late so people,forget,got tired of waiting & gave up on them, and/or got hooked on the other new shows just like I said would happen. 2 Broke Girls is doing well thankfully, up from last week. GG season six premiere was good, 90210 was ok.

  • JAA

    @Grey, last week’s Castle wasn’t adjusted down and DWTS ran over Castle’s time slot as always


    @ Jcc

    I’m inclined to agree, if they were going to cancel, they would have stopped production by now & just aired the first four, but with another 4 ordered, I’m thinking it may just stick around thru Jan (I’m so hoping).

    Last night’s ep kept me so glued I was stunned when it was over! I want more!

  • joss


    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.

    NBC did not picked it up so now they are just creating their own TWD

  • Eridapo

    Per NBC, there was a minute overrun for Revolution

    “At 10:01 p.m. ET, “Revolution” (3.1/8 in adults 18-49, 8.2 million viewers overall) ranked #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and all other key demographics. > “> Revolution> “> retained 97 percent of last week> ‘> s 3.2 rating. > “> Revolution> ‘> s> “> 18-49 margin of victory in the hour is 41 percent versus both CBS’s > “> Hawaii Five-0> “> and ABC’s > “> Castle> “> (2.2 each).”

    So an adjustment is likely…. I see the show dropping below a 3.0 this week.

  • RyanCanada

    @puta im speaking facts and last years winnipeg of AI country album went platinum and everyone knows the contract they get with Xfactor and AI, no one knows what The voice is giving these artists…..

  • Mate

    90210 Bellow a million for its SP :/
    HAHAH Gossip Girl!

  • nerv

    LOL at The Mob Doctor. Fringe and NBC comedies like Community can pull the same number of viewers but with higher demos. It is definitely a flop.

    I hope Revolution maintains its demo numbers. Good thing viewership is not being considered because it’s lower than its competitors. While Castle and H50 fans bicker last season, they may have found a common enemy this season thru RVN. Hahaha!!

  • thesnowleopard

    Revolution down again, Castle and 5-0 up. And this is why we don’t make predictions based on the first two episodes of a series.

    LOL! at Gossip Girl’s 0.4 season premiere. So much for the undying anticipation of its final season. Bye-bye Dawn O’s fantasy youth. I bet the network will be better off without it. It’s been a drag on the general ratings for a long time, especially with all that former network flagship baggage.

    90210’s 0.5 is rather sad, but it really wasn’t doing all that well last season, just solid compared to other shows’ freefall. It always seemed to float in a middle region between the shows that were doing well and the ones that were really sucking. Guess it’s no longer floating, but we’ll see. If it holds at a 0.5, it could maybe get a final season.

    HoD will probably be okay for another season if it keeps at least a 0.6, but it may end up on Fridays next season if most of the new shows do very well.

    I think a lot depends on how well the new shows do. By getting comparable demos and audience to the last season, both Supernatural and Hart of Dixie have shown that the network can still get well north of one million and a 0.5, so anything below that will likely be considered unacceptable. I’m guessing ANTM will make it to next spring, but unless it stops hemorrhaging, I bet it won’t be back next fall, Friday Factor notwithstanding.

    @Justin121 – Why wouldn’t Modern Family air this week? They’re showing 2 episodes.
