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.

    People where acting as if the voice was going to top a 6.0 cause of the SHAKIRA’S LATIN factor and I kept arguing saying NO.

    I WAS RIGHT! Virtually no diff!

  • ateofi

    The Voice hit CBS comedy lineup prety hard. Revolution, as expected, won the 10 pm, but losing 2.0 in the demo and over 5 million viewers to its lead in is disastrous! Glad to see Castle and H50 not to lose too much, I’m hoping for an upward adjustment in the finals.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Skylar James

    the following yes

  • Petar Ivanov

    What is 18-34 demo for Revolution? thanks.

  • Hmm

    And NBC lets out a sigh of relief.

    10pm on Monday’s is really strong compared to the rest of the week. Very please Castle didn’t get get smushed by Revoultion.

  • Cara

    Christina is a bigger singing star!

  • Skylar James

    @BigBrotherFan: what is the low for The Mentalist this season and series?

  • J-albaadani

    Just cancel TCD already. It was heavily promoted and doing worse than Emily Owens which was barely promoted. They should’ve just given Emily Owens the back 9 episodes for this season since Cult was a major flop and now so is TCD. Besides Arrow, BATB is the only new show to not completely flop like the others. It deserves a second season. Kristin Kreuk is amazing on that show.

  • Hubert R. Wentland

    that’s really good for The Voice. as much as I hate singing shows, I gotta admit Blind Auditions are fun. wonder what direction will these ratings take?

    comparing to any other day, Monday ratings are good all around.

  • Petar Ivanov

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

    What you talking about…..cbs mondays collapse a week before and without the voice. That is their new normal now.

  • MichaelChickless

    Come on Bones and The Following, adjust up.

    Revolution is a beast after The Voice, but all 10:00 shows did okay last night.

  • Fumbuck

    DWTS beat The Voice in total viewers, so did Castle over Revolution. Poor NBC, I guess the 18-49 card is the only one you can play LOL.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “No mention of the new series low for The Following?”

    Now added. Our information on series/season highs/lows arrives out of sync with the numbers on many days.

  • Lucas

    WoW! Loved last night The Voice, team Shakira and Usher!!!

  • Petar Ivanov

    Blind Auditions is what make the voice so good. They are entertaining fun and so good to watch. The voice is killing Idol-factor fromat all over europe now kill tham and in usa. People are the same.

  • Alex

    Revolution held up pretty well but it’s totally lead in dependent with The Voice.

    I’m not sure how you can qualify a statement like that when its only aired out of The Voice. Its not like we’ve seen an episode air elsewhere and collapse. Sure having The Voice as a lead-in doesn’t hurt but as we saw with Smash last year (and countless other shows over the years) if audiences don’t like a show they won’t stick with it regardless of the lead-in.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Skylar James

    I’m sorry no clue. I never watched that show.

  • Carl

    I don’t pay tons of attention to Castle but I’ll give them kudos for not being affected by their lead-in crashing.

    Everything seems to be about as expected. CBS seems to be falling into a trap by having too many mediocre comedies on one night. All I ever hear about 2BG is bad, and Mike & Molly is a timeslot hit. Not so much that anymore.

  • Skylar James

    @Bill Gorman: did The Mentalist hit a season or series low this Sunday?

  • Petar Ivanov

    @Revolution is a beast after The Voice, but all 10:00 shows did okay last night.

    Expext all 10 pm shows on tuesday and wednesday TOGETHER to lose from Monday 10 pm shows. Not one show will be even close to 2.0 on tuesday.
