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.

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.

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.

    lol at the Voice fans getting all defensive. the winners of the Voice have and will continue to flop.

    x factor has their UK acts selling 100 times more than Christina Aguilera and her disastrous Lotus album. Not to mention about 3 other acts that have been sitting pretty on the billboard top 100 this past year

    x factor usa has 1 act that was nominated for a BET award, one who has had a top 30 itunes track and charted on billboard, another who collaborated with wale and had a hit that charted on the billboard R&B chart.

    the voice contestants have been DROPPED and christina aguilera is likely to be DROPEED by her label RCA.

    Revolution is dead come spring.

    We all know what happened with Jericho after it had that long winter break. It had much higher numbers when it went on hiatus though.

    Besides this is NBC we’re talking about here. It’s gonna slip under 2.0 when it returns.

  • Josh

    I find “Revolution” boring – it really needs to pick up the pace… but I watch it every week still with the hope that it gets better.

  • John

    Wow Revolution managed to hold on to its viewers – 2.6!! That’s awesome! Last episode was great for character interactions and development.

  • Hmm

    I know Castle doesn’t have the best numbers, but it’s on par with all of ABC’s (and most other networks) 10pm shows. So good for Castle. And if the half hour is correct it doesn’t look like it will adjust down.

  • John

    Hold on as in, Voice dropping almost 7/10th and Revolution being steady. This show already has a pretty loyal fanbase. Add the DVR viewers (though it doesn’t count) and the ratings explode.

  • bluejay72

    These FLOP Factor fans popping out of nowhere are rejoicing at the rating slip of The Voice not realizing that they only look more PATHETIC knowing their show is FLOPPING. Ha! at the courage for bashing!

    The Voice contestants are invading iTunes for all you know and viewers of The Voice are still well over 10 million!

    The slip is NOT new as it normally occurs for every talent show going LIVE!
    And based on history, even in season 1, The Voice slipped. So what else is new?
    Getting a 3.7 at this stage is still HIGH, far higher than MOST shows on air!
    It is STILL the #1 show on Monday, killing everything else in other networks!
    Hahaha! @ the LOSERS!

  • Tessa

    Can’t wrap my head around Supernatural getting higher demo numbers than “The Mob Doctor.” People were bragging about its ratings compared to Fringe last week and I thought, “Well, Fringe is also on Friday.” But this show doesn’t even have that excuse to rate lower than an 8 year old show on the CW. Why is it still on?

  • shakeme

    can’t stand revolution. sorry, but i just don’t get it. i tried watching the first couple of episodes and i can’t deal any longer.

  • James

    The Voice way better than Flop Factor ratings

    More viewers than the American Music Awards

    #1 Tv show of the Night

    iTunes domination #1 Cassade #8 Melany #9 Amanda

    If I were a hater I would be hella mad of their success.

  • Sarah

    Yay Bones. Just a ‘2.0’, but up is up. :) And hopefully it gets adjusted up.


    Thanks for the halves. :)

    Does anybody think that the ABC and NBC execs should only air cop shows and laugh track sitcoms on their networks? That’s what CBS does and barely anybody complains about how uncreative the CBS execs are. Long story short: the CBS, ABC, and NBC execs don’t care about the quality of their shows; they only care about the ratings.

  • Maximillian

    Revolution will get a season 2 — but the real question is if it will last past that.

  • Tihomir

    Gossip girl and 90210. Those shows are CHAOS.

  • Tessa

    Also did anyone else notice that in last night’s episode of Revolution pretty much nothing happened?

  • RG-X

    I LOVE REVOLUTION and I know not every episode can be great – but last nite’s episode was cheating – it looked more like a filler – the episode dragged out with things that weren’t happening.

    If it wasn’t for the last 5 minutes, the episode would have been a complete disaster.

    NBC don’t come up with filler episodes that go no where – you won’t gain a bigger audience. Most people could have skipped the episode and only miss one small surprise which will be re-capped anyways.

  • Maximillian

    @shakeme – and one of the season 1 US X Factor contestants is getting her own show on Disney

  • s0303

    the cw should learn from gossip girl this season…not many seem to care about its shortened final season…they should just end 90210 this year and spare themselves the low ratings next year for its shortened season…

  • r0ckmypants

    @Tessa – I noticed that about the first four or five episodes of Revolution; that’s why I stopped watching. Clearly, I’m not the only one.

  • Samuel

    The Voice is good at getting artists on iTunes’ charts. However, the live show ratings have taken a dive and X Factor’s ratings are going up. Plus, there is never ONE mention of iTunes during X Factor, much less counting the purchases as votes. Also, The Voice’s artists ALWAYS bomb after the show, so that really isn’t a good argument.
