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.

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.

    Britney is much more relevant than Christina tho. Britney still gets #1 albums in the U.S and debuts in the top 10 world wide. Christina is a major Flop, her album Floptus major flop.

  • bluejay72

    @ shakeme

    Why can’t you answer my question?

    Why is FLOP Factor flopping???…


    FLOP Factor rising? from where? and how??? :)

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Revolution was pathetic last night.

    What do writers do when they have absolutely no clue how to move a story forward?

    Ta-Da! The ever popular “Hallucination/Dream Sequence!”

    And not only once, but TWICE in the SAME episode!

    I don’t know where they got their writers but these guys are the epitome of the term “UCLA hack”…

  • bluejay72


    That PATHETIC more-than-a-decade-ago rivalry of Spears and Aguilera is IRRELEVANT, Idiot!

    Do you realize that this is a forum for TV ratings and that your delusions of Spears&Aguilera is just out of place? Go to music fan sites for Christ’s sake!

    I’d like to ask you the same question by the way:

    Why is FLOP Factor flopping?

    What can you say about Britney’s FAILURE to lure viewers and her incoherent, unoriginal, repetitive statements on FLOP Factor? She needs to hire a personal script writer on a LIVE reality show! LOL!~ :D

  • John A

    Calm down with The Voice V X Factor war. Both shows are doing fine. And none of these shows create Singing stars anyway.

  • Baaa!

    @OldMan-Ken Burns is a master of the documentary.The Dust Bowl is one of his best.

  • Observer

    Woah @ The Voice-X Factor war!

    I understand that fans of these shows are really die hard. Gosh!

    Although I don’t watch any of them, but based on publicity, The Voice seems to have more credibility because everything published about it is good unlike the negativity on The X Factor in the press.

    Also, why are they talking about Christina and Britney? Isn’t that in 1999? I think Christina is good though as a judge based on snippets of The Voice’s ad. I’m really wondering though why Britney is a judge on a show like this…
    Just sayin’…

  • BagToPunch

    @Richard Steven Hack

    They’re having to write silly nonsense like dream sequences because there’s no story to the lights being off.

  • don juan

    nice rise for 2 broke girls. should be higher though.

  • Terry

    @ Austin Lauran

    Long story short: the CBS, ABC, and NBC execs don’t care about the quality of their shows; they only care about the ratings.

    You just figured that out now?? You know this site is called TVbythNumbers and not TVbytheQuality?

  • Austin Lauran

    I was just stating it as the reason that CBS has mostly cop shows and laugh track sitcoms and the CBS execs don’t have diversity like ABC and NBC in their shows, but barely anyone complains about it

  • POIFanatic

    Castle was fantastic last night! Good to see it increase a tenth! That guest star is always a mole or bad guy in everything he appears in. That was so predictable!

    Revolution was great. I hope the ratings stay above a 2.5. Nice to see it holding onto its viewers even though The Voice fell hard. Next week’s episode looks too good. The pendant was explained. I’m starting to love Charlie. Miles was awesome.

  • POIFanatic

    @Austin: Watch Person of Interest. Its The Dark Knight without the costume.

  • iggy agrimotor

    Amanda Kondolojy, you’ve mistakenly linked to the 11/12 poll. You want the 11/19 poll.

    There’s a good chance Revolution will be adjusted down to a new low.

  • Jim

    Interesting that so many people watch the dreg that is Revolution. Worst acting on TV.
    Well, it skews young, so there’s the reason, I suppose.

  • POIFanatic

    @Jim: I do not want procedural and reality to fill up every slot there is. Revolution has been getting better. So, get over it.

  • POIFanatic

    And I’m 24. Not a young teen or something.

  • Hanna


    LMAO. Are u really celebrating those awful h50 numbers??
    OMG Some people is deluded.
    Yes. I am positive CBS will have a party tonight. The show is such a winner.
    I hope it goes down in the Finals.

  • Terry

    The Voice will probably adjust up 1 or 2 tenths, as it usually does. However, it still dropped at least half a ratings point and if you look at the past 2 seasons, it will likely continue to bleed viewers as it approaches the finale.

    When X-Factor started to air the live episodes, did it also see such a big drop in ratings?

    There are many comments decrying Revolution’s hiatus and foreboding that the ratings will plummet, however, most shows that ended in the Spring and had a Summer hiatus, premiered with similar ratings in the Fall. Some like the BBT are actually doing better. Since NBS is still pairing Revolution with The Voice, the ratings of both shows will be comparable to the ratings of their mid-season finales (or Winter finales?). Ratings are usually lower in the Spring and I don’t expect the shuffle in the judges panel will help boost the ratings so I predict that The Voice will probably premiere around 3.7-4.0 and Revolution will be around 2.6-2.9.


    I doubt the Voice will bleed viewers as it approaches the finale as IMO it went down this week mainly because of Dancing with the Stars semi-finals. DWTS is concluding next week.

    Honestly my prediction is if Cassadee Pope has the best chance of being the most successful artist. Although Amanda Brown is my favorite. Cassadee hit number 1 on the itunes charts with her performance last night. Shes hugely popular on the boards. NBC will push her as the winner shes young, popular and their best chance at creating a star.
