Note: Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Lions/Bears) was simulcast on the ABC affiliate in Detroit. As a result, the ABC 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 4.2, down six tenths from last week's 4.8 adults 18-49 rating.
On ABC, Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars garnered a 2.4, up three tenths from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating.
On FOX, MLB Baseball Playoffs scored a preliminary 2.3 adults 18-49 rating, but will definitely be adjusted in the finals.
On The CW, 90210 earned a 0.4, down two tenths from last week's 0.6 among adults 18-49. Gossip Girl was even with last week's 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.
The last Presidential Debate earned a 3.9 on NBC, a 2.8 on ABC and a 2.2 on CBS. However, national ratings for the Presidential Debate will be sustained by Nielsen as it ran without commercials.

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.
