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).

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.

    Shakira and USHER REEEEEEAlly made the VOICE just explode, huh?
    Down from last year.
    Not much better than last fall.
    So much for all that LATINO and ethnic audience really blowing the ROOF of the voice!
    The Voice will be back to 3’s after the BLINDS
    DON’T BE DRAMATIC, people! It’s annoying.
    Plus, CEELOO is a nobody and SHAKIRA is supposed to have the new huge fanbase that XTINA could never ever get, apparently..DESPITE being a LATINA herself YET with the addition of USHER and SHAKIRA pretty much in the bracet of last fall. The way you people where arguing with me about SHAKIRAS MASSIVE PULL with LATINOS I was expecting a 5.5, atleast. Nope.
    I want XTINA BACK!

    DWTS needs to move to Sundays. Put Revenge/OUAT on Mondays

  • Billy

    NBC is back in business. Those are very good numbers for The Voice and The

    DWTS got slammed. The combination of The Voice and natural drop in second week had DWTS tumbling down.

  • Beth

    I wish Fox would move Bones to any other night, except Friday.

  • Wright

    Still good for RVN and The Following. Hopefully both get adjusted up though.

  • Skylar James

    @SJ: The Voice happened, duh!

  • s0303

    voice was higher than i thought…revolution is going to tank next year if it doesn’t follow the voice…i do think they killed the right person off last night, he could not act :)

  • Alex

    And NBC breathes a huge sigh of relief.

    The Voice back strong and absolutely hammers Dancing with the Stars. And as expected the Fox and CBS line-ups takes a hit opposite The Voice as well. We’ll see how The Voice holds up over the rest of the season but I think the new coaches work brilliantly though. NBC have done an excellent job casting this show from day one. Fox should take note.

    Revolution down a little but still easily the best scripted show on NBC. The hiatus obviously hasn’t killed it.

    Its looking pretty clear that everyone except NBC might want to rethink Monday next season though. Which is a bit of a crazy sentence to write. Also on the note of what NBC do with Revolution next season Tuesday 9PM surely? It continues to get a Voice lead-in, strengthens Tuesday night and frees up Monday 10PM to launch a new drama. Maybe even a new drama at 10PM Tuesday (although I’d probably keep Parenthood there).

    NBC Adults 18-34: Rating/Share 3.2/10


    NBC executives are dancing harlem shake with Jay Leno cartoon face now.

  • Cara

    I simply cannot believe these numbers! The Voice and DWTS ran over by 1 and 2 minutes, respectively! I expect there will be some slight adjustments for all the shows that follow The Voice and DWTS later this afternoon!

  • jessica

    you know that christina aguilera is latin and ce lo green is african american?

    but shakira is more likeable and warmth than christina , and more succesful.

  • Cara

    We are moving to a society where people only watch reality shows! This cannot be true!

  • zerg

    Great for The Voice, “only” 2 points from last season superbowl boosted premiere..

  • Watcher

    And Jessica the idiot just proved my point, keep hating retard

  • Skylar James

    Can anyone confirm if 1.4 for The Mentalist and 2.3 for The Following are series/season lows?

  • RyanCanada

    TCD is dead, and omg at 6 mill for HIMYM lol… ekk, thanks god M&M and 2BG has the viewers.

  • Storm

    Wow! HOD 0.1 has to be the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen.

  • William Haney

    It seems when The Voice and Revolution returns, it just socks Hawaii Five-0 for some reason…

  • Ricky

    At least RVN didn’t fall too far. Oh well. I bet even the haters would have loved last night’s episode, if only for what happened in the last ten minutes.

  • Jared

    Revolution held up pretty well but it’s totally lead in dependent with The Voice.
    Over on The CW,TCD seems dead at this point even though I think it’s a pretty cute show. BatB will definitely get the renewal over this series.
