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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Revolution made me so mad last night because of who died last night! Hopefully the character Aaron Pittman will die in the show soon. That character annoys me so much and may be the reason I stop watching Revolution.

    Despite a weaker lead-in, Castle still beat Hawaii FLOP-0.

    The Voice will sink in coming weeks. Expect Revolution to adjust down.

  • BrieK

    The new judges really worked in The Voice’s favor. The Voice killed DWTS and everything else. I really thought people were sick of singing competition shows, but I guess not.

  • Factor Flop Pigney

    Shakira and Usher will pay more than Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green and contienen only 13 million.
    The Voice 4 season a failure

  • Melissa

    Wow, The Voice did fantastic!

    Half-hours per Marc Berman

    Dancing With the Stars – 2.3/2.3/2.4/2.3
    The Voice – 4.0/4.5/4.9/5.2
    Bones – 1.9/1.9
    The Carrie Diaries – 0.4/0.4

    The Following – 2.2/2.4
    Hart of Dixie (R) – 0.1/0.1

    Castle – 2.2/1.9
    Hawaii Five-0 – 2.1/1.9
    Revolution – 2.9/2.4

    CW will be hitting 0.0 with summer reruns soon :)

  • BG

    The new judges are NOT good. There will be a noticeable decrease in coming weeks. The average will be down from last season by the time this season is good.

  • Hi

    TCD 0.4 and under a million. RIP.

    halves, please?

  • Stew

    @BigBrotherFan Revolution isn’t really that lead in dependent. Its one of those shows that people have to follow week to week to enjoy it. I mean we can never know for sure until we see how it does without a The Voice lead in

  • Olka

    Hahahaha HOD, although it is a repeat.

  • maplab98

  • joey

    The Voice is the new American Idol…

  • DKD

    Consistent with end of last year, Revolution’s Live + 7 will be in the 4.5 to 4.6 range.

    10PM shows are DVR’d shows.

  • Watcher

    Why are stupid artist fans thinking that the absence of Christina and Ceelo would have sunk the show? The blinds are always the highest rated of the show, of course people tuned in, and to see how the new judges/chemistry would fare.

    Fans need to get over it, the show is a hit, and nobody kicked those 2 out, they wanted a break, and will be back in future cycles. I swear people act so immature.

  • sally

    i watch Hawaii 50 and The Following on Mon night, the other shows i watch are on cable

  • brandon

    I bet TCD gets adjusted down just by looking at its viewers

  • Samunto

    DWTS will be hitting high 1s late April. Don’t expect The VOice to drop much. It was very constistent last season with the exciting knock-outs and the fun steal factor.
    Some relief for NBC which won’t be beaten by Univision this week!

  • Petar Ivanov

    Notice that Revolution will add at least 2-3 tenths in C3. In tha fall Revolution was even with NCIS in C3 but with lower demo.

    In general second year in a row “high concept” successful show on netwotk tv mean that networks will start tring more creative new things. Even ‘old’ CBS will have high concept show now. Still Revolution and once upon a time a not on cable levels. My top 5 “high concept” shows at this moment:

    1 Game og thrones
    2 Walking dead
    3 True Blood
    4 Revolution
    5 Once upon a time ONLY season one. After that they mess up (for ME).But still happy for its fans and success.

    the vampire diaries as british are saying not my cup of tea.
