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.

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.

    @Eridapo, do you think Castle will be adjusted down?

  • @puta

    @bluejay72 Shut up!

    numbers are numbers sooooooooooooooooooo

    you stupid show is only tv, no is star after tv, as The X Factor & Idol.

  • TVDude

    My expectations for Revolution were set by Smash last spring. My thoughts were that if it could do better, it would be in renewal territory (since Smash got renewed). I expected it to drop below a 3.0 this week and even with a downward adjustment, it’s looking really good for Revolution.

    While I’m sure NBC would love for the show to hold better, when does a network not want something to do better? They probably would love for The Voice to do better. Speaking of The Voice, those are some good numbers for a battle rounds episode. It looks like the steal idea worked. NBC still owns Monday, even with competition.

    I can see CBS holding onto Partners if it holds its 2.2 rating. I know it’s not good, but they might let it air its 13 episodes. What that would mean for RoE, I don’t know, but I’m sure CBS had a back up plan if Partners was a hit, so paring RoE with a TBBT repeat somewhere on the schedule might be an option.

    Good for Hawaii Five-0 hope it’ll be adjusted up.

  • kill00

    Yay for Castle being up from last week haha for CW peemiers. Hope Arrow does good tonight

  • Eridapo

    @ Grey

    What are you smoking? and Are you sure your name is not Chris? LOL

  • Steph

    I think the CW made an error in premiering their shows so late. I totally understand why they are doing it, but at the same time I think a lot of the excitement over new fall programming has begun to subside. I agree with most posters who say it will be the last year for 90210. Even though GG did horrendously, I’m glad they are doing a final season instead of just cancelling without wrapping anything up. I watched it but probably won’t tune back in until the final episode when Gossip Girl herself is revealed. I hope B&tB and Arrow do well and that TVD’s premiere isn’t awful!

  • GARY

    90210 is so dead

    cw please canceled 90210 because that numbers is very painfull

  • scifi

    On the 4th episode The Event was already with 2.2 rating. So 3.2 for Revolution is very good.

  • Greg

    What was once the CW’s flagship show is down to this miserable pitiful corpse. 10 episodes, can’t pass soon enough.

    90210 is really low. It seems like the obvious choice to receive the final shortened season treatment the CW has been giving to its shows.

  • tv#1

    Still very good for Revolution, but I hope it stabilizes soon.

    Very tough night for the CW. I think this pretty much confirms that this will be the last season of 90210 as well as Gossip Girl.

  • Eridapo

    @ Grey

    Those past adjustments happen when DWTS was hitting 3s and 4s, but now it rates 2.1 or 2.2 which is no different than the second half hour of Castle. There is also no Football preemption.

  • Grey

    @ JAA

    I’m just saying, 99.9% of the time “Castle” is adjusted down. I don’t like it either and, believe me, no one will be more happy than me if I’m wrong this week. :-)

  • bluejay72


    I knew it!
    Y’all are FLOP FACTOR fans! hahaha! :D
    Now I understand where the gripe is coming from.

    I guess there’s no pill for JEALOUSY!

    Say whatever you want, FLOP FACTOR is still a FLOP!
    Where’s the rise in the ratings? It was still down there.
    Nowhere near The Voice!


  • Bee

    i LOVE partners. the show is hilarious and has gotten 10x funnier than its pilot. it can totally be a grower. i hope it doesn’t get adjusted down.

  • Grey

    @ Eridapo

    “What are you smoking? and Are you sure your name is not Chris? LOL”

    Haaaaaa! Wish I was smoking something. ;D Just kidding. No, I’m not Chris but we’re kindred spirits. :D

    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.

    ME: If NBC picked it up (i mean TWD) they now can creat super power 2 hours dramas TWD&RVN!!! But they pass on TWD.

    The voice really KILL them all. Love it.

    CW don’t need the voice. They will make seppuku on its own.

  • Eridapo

    @ nerv

    “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!!”””

    Actually the Peace agreement between the two sides was signed last year when NBC premiere Smash. Both sides agree to withhold their ire towards one another and focus it solely on the overly hype Smash.

    You are right though, they have a new common enemy…

  • POI

    bye bye 90210 and gg is in its final season so good redence to gg i kinda like 90210 sometimes.

  • bluejay72


    Why? Were you embarrassed because of FLOP FACTOR’s ratings?

    You’re the one who should shut up because you and your FLOP FACTORS are the pathetic LOSERS!

    Deal with it! NUMBERS don’t lie!
    The Voice is #1 and is here to stay!
