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.

    yeeeeey, Hawaii five-0 got more than 1 million viewer back ha la lo ya hight five everyone!!!!

  • Steven Leitner

    I didn’t think Led Zeppelin would boost Revolution’s ratings like how The Fray’s How to Save a Life boosted Grey’s Anatomy’s ratings.

  • TV Host

    Despite the artificial drama that Flop Factor is making on the show (rivalry, forced bickering, etc.), it still can’t raise the ratings for the show.


    The Voice contestants are EVERYWHERE on iTunes every stage of the competition EVERY season and are guests on talk shows. They were even recently featured at iHeart radio which holds an annual awards show.

    The Voice has Adam Levine of Maroon 5 which continues to rule charts!

    LOL @ you FLOP Factor fans.
    Come bck to me when your own show can actually WIN a night just like The Voice. But since i is IMPOSSIBLE, then see you NEVER!

  • jo

    die The Voice dieeee

  • Jamie

    I’m not worried for The Voice yet, I’ll save that for next season when they’re swapping out two of the judges since Christina and Cee Lo are leaving. Besides it’s still on top of the night.

  • Samuel

    @bluejay72 You are acting like such a baby. X Factor US contestants have done ten times what The Voice alumni have. Also, The Voice got it’s butt handed to it in the UK and, just like here in the States, it’s contestants have done horrible. Yes, The Voice is beating The X Factor US in ratings, but it will never have as relevant of judges or as successful of contestants.

  • mula

    Wow. big drop for the Voice.

  • mike

    The x factor has Chris Rene, Astro, and Rachel Crowd who all had some sort of success if not huge, once the show ended. Melanie Amaro has her album coming out so there’s no way to tell if she will be successful or not until then. Also the UK version has given us One Direction, Leona Lewis, and Cher Lloyd. I think Little Mix may be able to do well here too.

    For this season I believe Carly will do well after the show and Tate will do good in the country market. If fifth harmony can get there harmonies down, and learn which girl should sing what part they could do decent as well.

    The only person on The Voice I’ve heard from after the show was Javier, and its only because we are from the same state and the news goes crazy her when they get on a reality show. They even went crazy for Julia Dematto.

  • John

    @Steven: Definitely wouldn’t bring in any viewers. Led Zeppelin was used as a prestige thing and brought class to the proceedings. Its not an ‘in’ thing like Fray was when they aired their song on Grey’s. Rachel’s exposition scene became 100 times cooler because of Zeppelin and Kashmir was brilliantly done.

  • Samuel

    @TV Host the live shows of The X Factor have risen steadily in ratings while The Voice has taken a nosedive. Your argument is extremely invalid.

  • rick

    Dancing with Stars dominates the night with 14+ million viewers. Networks are starting to find they can make big money outside of 18-49. CBS has led the way on that revenue model. Maybe ABC is figuring it out too.

  • ToXiX

    I dont watch The Voice, The X Factor, or American Idol.

    But its so clear The X Factor is A MAJOR FLOP :D :D and its fans hating on the voice is even more pathetic. You sad little nosebleeds.

  • TVDude

    It looks like I guess Revolution right, but I bet it gets adjusted down. The Voice ran two minutes late last night.

    Overall the night wasn’t that bad.

  • mike

    Crowe not Crowd

  • Jonathan

    Wow! Low for the Voice. This is when the show gets so boring… Poor Xtina! A flop album and now show haha

  • Dóchas

    The Voice was ok last night with the exception a few. Cody Leblew is a schizophrenic circus act. One minute he’s wearing jeans and flannel, the next he’s channeling Michael Jackson while dressing like George Michael. Neither of which can his “voice” touch.
    Revolution was so boring. I need for it to become action packed and so far, it’s just not. I want to love it for the Kripke factor alone but I just don’t.
    Kashmir is always a good song choice and I found it interesting that the lyric “All will be revealed” kept playing over Monroe when NOTHING is being revealed. Don’t pull a Lost and expect to drag this out. It did not add a cool factor to the show though I know Kripke loves his Led Zeppelin. I’m sure he was happy regardless.

  • Greg

    Do people hate the live show part on The Voice or something? Cause that drop also ocurred last season.

  • enes

    Gossip Girl was so good last night, i really enjoyed that episode :D

  • Tessa


    Kripke did a whole episode of hallucinations in the second season of Supernatural (called “What is and what should never be,”) and it is to date praised as one of the best episodes of the show. However the hallucination in that episode provided the audience with new information, both about character and what had happened had certain things went a certain way. It let us see the story from a different perspective.

    Last night’s Revolution episode was laden with hallucinations none of them showed us anything new. We already knew Miles and Monroe were good friends before Miles broke off the engagement, and it wasn’t hard to guess why he did it although I thank God it wasn’t over a girl (or a child as it is customary on this show.) We already knew Charlie loved her father and missed the life she had with him before, so that wasn’t anything new. And Aaron’s hallucinations to his wife (much like the character himself) were just a waste of time. Had they used the hallucinations to reveal something surprising about someone that we didn’t previously know then it would’ve been a great episode.

    DWTS gets a big boost in total viewers. good for them!

    @ tv host: don’t try to compare the success of the judges. britney spears ALONE has sold as many if not more albums than the 4 voice coaches COMBINED

    her last tour made a HUGE amounts.

    christina aguilera is predicted to have her most recent album debut with a pathetic 70K albums this week, whereas one direction, an x factor alum, will debut with more than 500k albums this week.

    even little demi lovato’s most recent album and single CRUSHED christina’s on the chart.
