Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Saints/Eagles) was simulcast on the NBC affiliate in New Orleans. As a result, the NBC 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 earned a 4.5, down four tenths from last week's 4.9 adults 18-49 rating. . Revolution scored a 2.9, down a tenth from last week's 3.0. Your predictions were too optimistic .

On ABC, Dancing with the Stars scored a 2.1, down two tenths from last week's 2.3 . Castle earned a 1.9, down three tenths from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating

CBS returned to its regular Monday Night lineup after a week of repeats for Superstorm Sandy and preemption from presidential debate coverage. How I Met Your Mother earned a 2.8, down four tenths from its last original's 3.2. Partners was even with the 2.1 it earned 3 weeks ago. 2 Broke Girls earned a 3.3, up two tenths from the 3.1 it earned three weeks ago and Mike & Molly earned a 2.8, down two tenths from its last 3.0 rating. Hawaii Five-O returned to a  2.0, down a tenth from a 2.1 three weeks ago.

On FOX, the return of Bones was flat with its last original's 2.0. Frequent punchline The Mob Doctor returned to a 1.0, which is actually up a tenth from its last 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

On the CW, 90210 Returned from a week off to earn a 0.4 even with its last original. Gossip Girl returned to a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating after its last original's 0.4 rating.

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.

  • Lena

    So glad Bones is steady!

  • THE OLD MAN

    NBC numbers may be inflated? Even worse for the Voice/RVN if so.

    HIMYM below 3.0, but 2B & M+M decent, H50 2.0 beats Castle

    Mob Doc back to 1.0 as Bones maintains for FOX

    ABC in dire straits, but nothing like CW

  • Nikki

    What is so bad about Partners. Its held up pretty consistant every week. Poor CW shows though.. 0.4 and 0.3 thats bad.

  • Alan

    Great for 2BG, 90210 matching last episode’s ratings, but Gossip Girl… it has to stabilize asap!

  • Jamie Spears

    “The Voice Slides” LOOOOOOOL it’s a 4.5 and will probably go up, Flop Factor wishes it had these kind of ratings.

  • John A

    Awful episode of Castle worst of the series. LMAO at GG. 3 crap shows on CW getting 0.3 now lol

  • Sammy01

    Bones off air for 4 weeks comes back exactly the same demo and viewers, I’ll take that.

  • Data

    Revolution did fine – it’s down a tenth and who says it couldn’t recover from this next week. Besides: It’s still the winner in its time slot. So, no reason to panick.

    As for HIMYM: I love that show, really, but the sliding ratings give me hope that this might actually be the final season and CBS doesn’t renew it for renewal’s sake.

  • ReallyTired

    LOL at Castle.

  • Andrew

    HIMYM down over a point from this time last season – time to end it, sadly.

  • GoalTV

    The Voice is still stomping over everything, and i love it. Cant wait to see Flop Factor go down in flames Wed.

  • Ali

    Revolution will be adjusted up, I am sure.

  • Sam

    It’s kind of amazing how “The Voice” is always guaranteed somewhere in the 4 range. It’s consistency this season kind of makes everyone forget how it slided during the course of Season 2.

  • Kourt

    What happened to Castle. Last week demo was 2.2 and now this week it is 1.9. What the heck happened?

  • Sarah

    Good for Bones for staying stable. :)

  • Oliver

    @Nikki

    Consistently bad, wedged between two hits.

    That said, HIMYM is now beginning to struggle.

  • Hmm

    I was hoping for a 2 for Castle at least. But it’s in par with all of ABC’s 10pm shows. I wish total viewers counted for something!

  • Cyrax86

    Will Scandal beat Castle this week?

  • John A

    Revolution is just like Castle few yrs ago. Drops hard at half hour.

  • John

    Revolution was fantastic! Those ratings are awesome! Damn, I thought I’d hate this show, but the last few episodes have made it my most favorite of the season.
