Late Night Ratings

Via NBC Press Note:

In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:
  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.8/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.2/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.2/6.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 Wednesday results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.5/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.6/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.3/4 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.4/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.1/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).
  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.9/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/3 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.


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.

    Whoa! What happened to DWTS?!

  • Chris

    It’s down, but NBC is in no condition to complain about a 2.7

  • Oliver

    Great ratings for The Voice. I think the break worked in its favour.

    Okay ratings for Revolution. Revolution will likely adjust down, since it’s scheduled to start late, and match its series low of 2.6. I doubt it will hold its ratings going forward. I see it being renewed, but NBC has a tough scheduling decision next season. Perhaps move it to Tuesday and launch the compatile The Sixth Gun after it?

    ABC needs to move DWTS away from The Voice next season. The night is just too competitive and it’s being crushed.

  • livvy

    The Carrie Diaries held up. I thought for sure it would get Cult ratings.

  • Petar Ivanov

    NBC back in the game and win Monday. Great gob fot the voice and revolution. Expext 18-34 numbers but i gues NBC kill yjem all in that deno even more.

  • Sarah

    Bones :( I really hope it’s adjusted up.

  • CBSviewer

    What happened to CBS ? It is just because of The Voice ?

  • Oliver

    Hah, 0.1 and 0 share for the HoD repeat. Hope it adjusts down!

  • Simon

    Even though it is down a 2.7 is still solid for any NBC show, renewal any day now methinks. Grimm was down as well but only a tenth.

  • halloween

    .1 HoD rerun lol…no syndication value?…Revolution did ok in protective timeslot

  • DenverDean

    REV dropped from 2.9 to 2.4 in half hours. That is troublesome….

  • Petar Ivanov

    I agree. If Revolituon stay 2.0 + NBC should try it like anchor show in “high concept” day. I mena this way for example:

    8 Revolution
    9 The Sixth Gun
    10 Grimm

  • halloween

    The Following 2 seasons and done

  • Mon

    2 Broke Girls hang in there! How about a 3.0 on finals?

    I was off by 1.0 on my prediction on The Voice premiere. That 4.7 is outstanding. Wow!

  • Edward

    No mention of the new series low for The Following?

  • Bookworm

    The Voice did great and Revolution did a tad bit better than what I thought (2.6 was my prediction) but considering NBC’s other dramas, this is great news for them though I do worry about the viewers, however the DEMO is the most important part obviously.

    Revolution returns and could possibly be the number one rated 10pm show; have to wait for Scandals numbers to determine. Great news for NBC.


    GREAT for The Folowing considering competition. IDOL premier still beat The Voice…. I expected that drop for Revolution.

  • Alisson Muniz

    The Voice is a great last night, bur Revolution flop ervery wher

  • Anon

    Re: Revolution, my prediction was spot on. Not really surprised by any of the other numbers. Weather was cold and wintry in the east; perhaps that drove all the numbers up a bit.

    HIMYM: May 9 is 45 days from yesterday.

  • DW

    its daylight savings. a relative went to get get desert before her show came on and the place was busy. people are out doing stuff on a nice night.
