NBC was the number one network in adults 18-49, but CBS won with total viewers.

On NBC, The Voice earned a 4.1, down half a ratings point from last week's 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. Go On earned a 2.5, down a tenth from the 2.6 its last original earned. The New Normal earned a 1.8, down  from the 2.0 its last original earned Parenthood earned a 1.9, down a tenth from its last original's 2.0 18-49 rating.

On FOX, Raising Hope was even with last week's 1.7 among adults 18-49. Ben And Kate garnered a 1.4, up two tenths from last week's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating  New Girl was even with 2.7 its last original earned. The X Factor earned a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. However, it should be noted that last night's X Factor aired out of pattern and was reduced to an hour, so these low ratings are not entirely unexpected.

On ABC, Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars earned a 2.2 up from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. The premiere of Happy Endings earned a 1.9, up from from its 1.7 season two finale rating but way down from last year's 3.1 adults 18-49 rating. The premiere of Don't Trust The B in Apt 23 earned a 1.7, way down from last season's 2.9 premiere rating and 2.4 finale rating. Your predictions for both of these were too optimistic Private Practice earned a 1.4, down from its last original's 1.6 18-49 rating and is tied for a series low.

On CBS, NCIS earned a 3.2, down two tenths from its last original's 3.4 and is a season low, NCIS: Los Angeles earned a 2.7, down three tenths from its last 3.0 rating and is a fall low. Vegas earned a 1.5, down half a ratings point from its last original's 2.0 rating and is a series low.

On the CW, Hart Of Dixie scored a0.5, down a tenth from last week's 0.6 adults 18-49 rating. Emily Owens M.D. earned a 0.3, down two tenths from last week's 0.5 adults 18-49 premiere rating.

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

Definitions:

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    All the 8 comedies of the night did very badly, with the exception of new girl, which held up much much better than I thought it would facing similar skewing happy endings. Go On also did not do badly. Everything else was just awful. And holly crap at Vegas… it’s as good as dead now, not even a friday move could save it now. Looks like the good wife might survive after all. Private Practice also fell to horrible levels but the vegas fall looks worse to me, especially considering the lead-in. Not even the NCSI shows perform good as usual. NCSI was actually beaten by Once Upon a Time and Grey’s from last week, whereas NCSI LA tied New Girl for the first time this season, baring any adjustments. Also, awful for the cw, especially the emily owens show. Nikita should go there, it could probably score a 0.4 in a weekday, with fridays being arrow repeats until the end of the fall. A repeat will do better than emily ownes and that is usually cw’s threshold to pull a show. Horrible night all around for everything, except New Girl!

    I expected that 1.7 for Don’t the Trust the B, but 1.9? That’s quite low for Happy Endings…

    Geez, the 9:00 is not good across the board! I guess the week off due to the debate really hurt it. Makes me nervous for Monday’s numbers next week.
