Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Bears/49ers) was simulcast on the CBS affiliate in San Francisco. As a result, the CBS numbers may be 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 3.7, down sharply from last week's 4.4 adults 18-49 rating. Revolution was even with last week's 2.6 among adults 18-49. Your predictions were too optimistic.

On CBS, How I Met Your Mother was even with last week's 3.0 among adults 18-49. 2 Broke Girls scored a 3.4, up two tenths from last week's 3.2 among adults 18-49. Mike & Molly earned a 2.9, down a tenth from last week's 3.0 adults 18-49 rating. Hawaii Five-O notched a 2.2, up a tenth from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, Dancing With the Stars scored a 2.3, up two tenths from last week's 2.1. Castle earned a 2.0, up a tenth from last week's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

On FOX, Bones scored a 2.0, up a tenth from last week's 1.9 among adults 18-49. The Mob Doctor garnered a 0.9, also up a tenth from last week's 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

On the CW, 90210 earned a 0.4, down two tenths from last week's 0.6 adults 18-49 rating. Gossip Girl scored a 0.3, down a tenth from last week's 0.4 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.

    I’m just glad that bones is staying the same week after week. They seriously need to put it back on thursdays. I don’t feel sorry for Fox’s lack of ratings this year..their doing this to themselves. if they’d schedule their shows better they’d have acouple of massive ratings. Bones was getting really great ratings on thursdays and what do you do? you move it to a night where everything is on and it can’t reach the rating you want: Stupid. But atleast it’s staying the same week after week and the demo is staying the same. I am also glad that Revolution is doing well. Although it is lucky because it happens to be on at a time on mondays when nothing else is on. I just think that Fox needs to reconsider some of their scheduling that’s really hurting the network. on another note, I don’t want 90210 but their doing awful demographic wise and overall viewers and even for the CW..Ouch!.

  • bluejays

    Can’t comment on CBS as it might all get adjusted down somewhat. In which case putting repeats of Men on instead of Partners will have done no good at all. They’ve ruined their Monday nights. Idiots!

    Revolution is dismal but I expect it will come back big in spring when it gets the boost from the high rating early shows of The Voice. Sadly.

    People slate Castle (and I don’t watch it) but it does really well to hold up against more competition than any other ten pm shows face on ABC and with a weak lead in.

  • William

    Lol at Mondays 9PM slot- except for 2BG.. those are embarassing numbers for FOX and CW. 90210 should just wrap up this season, syndicated shows at 7PM get better ratings and draw more. While i’m at it i really like HIMYM but it feels to be just dragging out at this point. I feel like whoever the mother is at this point will be a disappointment, time to end the show this season not next

  • Oliver

    Revolution hasn’t stopped fading away. Its football was a blowout too.

    The TaaHM repeat didn’t do any better than Partners, which isn’t a surprise. Makes me wonder why CBS didn’t just air the remaining episodes of Partners rather than pulling it from the schedule.

  • Roswell

    90210 had its best episode of the season last night… What happened

  • Wright

    Revolution still great like always.

  • shakeme

    not surprised about the Voice. that show relies waaaayyy too much on gimmicks. no more spinning chairs and no more steals. there’s been too much focus on christina aguilera the last couple of episodes as well.

  • Tony ^_^

    Hmm… “Revolution” stayed steady. So I wonder if the drop for “The Voice” was just the usual drop all singing competition shows have as they progress…

  • bluejay72

    Get the bigger GARBAGE on Wednesday & Thursday off the air together with Acey who is obviously a sore fan loser!

    The Voice rules!~ :)

    Even with its decline, it still sh*ts on your FLOPPING show!

    The Voice has consistently been on the top 5 of the top 25 shows since its premiere this season. Eat that!

  • MDM

    People finally realizing The Voice is trash. Glad Revolution stayed steady, was probably the best episode of the season last night.

  • Ashley

    The Voice was great last night. X-factor and Simon could only dream of The Voice’s numbers. Revolution wouldn’t be a “hit” without The Voice.


    The Voice no longer 4.0 & RVN flat, NBC certainly has a tough road ahead

    DWTS inches up (but explodes w/ ttl viewers) & Castle dead last again

    Bones still demonstrates staying power & you can’t keep a good MD down

    CW scores CW ratings

    Can’t discuss CBS until finals, but if number hold, interesting 8:30 still @ 2.1

  • CrimTV

    Well at least Revolution was steady, hopefully it’ll rise next week for it’s mid-season finale

  • ToXiX

    CBS is murdering their Monday’s.

    Its time to phase out the Monday block for Thursday.

    Next season


    9 2 Broke Girls
    930 Mike & Molly


    8 Two And A Half Men
    830 New Comedy
    9 The Big Bang Theory
    930 New Comedy

  • Mike

    CBS numbers maybe inflated? Oh Man, the numbers are already terrible for them.
    I am ok with RVN numbers. Still winning the hour and the best NBC show. The show was excellent yesterday and next week looks even better.
    Hopefully FOX will improve in January with The Following. That is one of the shows I was looking forward this season.

  • Joh K.

    Can we get 90210/GG half hours.

  • s0303

    yikes cw…hopefully this help batb chances on renewal…

    revolution did good to hold the demo considering how much the voice fell

    why didn’t cbs air reruns of tbbt instead of tahm???

  • Baaa!

    Steady looks good for Revolution with The Voice drop. Castle and H5O at worst will be steady with last week. Bones back up, it’s a rock for FOX. Game was not that good unless you a 49er fan or really like watching the Bears lose.

  • rob60990

    “Bones was getting really great ratings on thursdays and what do you do?”

    Yea, it just needed to be propped up by X Factor & American Idol.

  • Kyle
