via press note:

In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.6/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/6; 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,” 0.7/3; "Late Show," 0.6/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.


From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.3/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.


From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.2/4 in metered-market households) tied CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.2/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.4/3 in 18-49) tied "Late Late Show" (0.4/3).


At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/3 in metered-market households and a 0.2/2 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.

    @Also Tuesday 10PM is just a complete wasteland.

    How all people in this site and elsewhere acknowledge that but networks continue to put worst show they has there. Mistery. I am sure they are smart and see that door wide open and in 9 pm and in 10 pm on tuesday with almost dead cable competition and network competition.

  • NBC Fan

    Go On is this year’s Up All Night. It will be renewed for a second season and then the ratings won’t improve. Then, NBC will try to fix it, but that won’t work either so it’s eventually cancelled.

  • Justin121

    The Voice boosted the entire NBC line-up by great margins.

    NBC went from #1 to #4 after The Voice.

    Body of Proof nearly tied Revenge :D

    PS I don’t like the new layout.


    DWTS really skews old, but just noticed that BOP does also

  • luv tv

    Very happy the Voice dipped. I miss Xina please bring her back pronto..

  • TV Addict


  • k:Alex

    Go On will be a mid season next season, if it isn’t canceled.
    With such lead in those ratings aren’t good at all.

  • Mickey

    Amazing boost for Go On.

    Too bad it’s moving to Thursdays behind The Office next week, because The Voice is doing wonders for it.

  • eridapo

    i predicted a 2.1 for go on…following the voice, plus courtney cox guest starring helps a lot :) go on held the demo as well as revolution did…take the voice away from revolution and it will free fall like go on did :)

    that is what I say about Revolution, but there are some people here that keep stating that lead ins do not matter. I always believed that they do specially for shows on their first two seasons…

    I always maintained that without the Voice the Monday at 10PM competition would be a 3 horse race.. All 3 shows could finish first in the slot and maybe only a couple of tenths to separate them, but when you have the Voice as a lead in The Voice lifts Revolution by as much as 6 to 8 tenths of a point..

    They read this site and others for one thing. Also there was increased promotion that this episode was to feature Jeri Ryan and Ivan Sergei having great chemistry. Many fans that dropped out since the retooling of this show probably returned for this reasons. If the numbers go back down for the next new episode, which I predict they will, then my point will be proven. We’ll see.

    It’s sort of ridiculous with Goon and TNN. They both doubled their numbers after the Voice. TNN should obviously be cancelled, but I think it is kind wierd/telling that it is getting its last two episodes of the season to air after the Voice. It kind of feels like NBC is trying anything to justify keeping that show. If you keep TNN, there is no way you could justify cancelling Whitney or Community. But we will see.

    If Goon gets moved to Thursday next season (or renewed at all), as is hinted by the upcoming schedule change, which ratings are more likely, tonights 2.1 or last weeks 1.0. I am pretty certain it won’t be getting a 2.0 there. At the end of the day, not everything can air after the Voice. Take Revolution: does anyone really think that show would be pulling high 2’s if it aired on Thursday? NBC seems to have purposely avoided that situation, so we can’t know.

    NBC’s solution: they need to start making more shows that people want to watch.

    @luv tv,

    Christina left on her own terms this season. Her excuse was she wanted to go on a worldwide tour, which clearly isn’t happening. I can’t even remember the last time she even went on tour.

  • Jarrod

    BoP will have 42 episodes by the end of this season. Could it be much like CBS’s Rules of Engagement and just keep making it past renewal and eventually make it’s way to 7 seasons and 100 episodes?

  • James

    And that number of the bad show shall be 6.66. He who wishes to watch quality television shall chance the channel.

  • TV Addict

    Go On and The New Normal better adjust down 11 tenths!!!!


    @ Petar Ivanov

    Cable has Sons Of Anarchy @ 10:00, not a beast, but a real winner

  • Alex

    The problem with Tuesday 10PM isn’t that the networks haven’t tried their. CBS have tried there the past couple of seasons. Vegas was one of their preferred new shows this season and it just didn’t land. ABC have maybe thrown in the towel on the slot but in their defence they have issues elsewhere that need addressing. And NBC tried to put Smash there with a fair bit of promotion but it hasn’t worked out for them. I do wonder if CBS’ solution next season will be to just turn Tuesday night into NCIS night – NCIS / NCIS: LA / NCIS: Red (or whatever they’re calling this spin-off). Insanity perhaps but when NBC is the network that’s had the best success story in the slot (with Parenthood) insanity might be the way to go.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @ think last night episode of go on went up also due to the fact courtney cox guest started

    I doubt that. Althou when miley cyrus was guest star on TAHM some sites wrote ‘miley cyrus boost TAHM’. But courtney cox big time was friends. And its over now.

  • Cougar Town Forever

    @TV Addict

    I couldn’t agree more!

    @NBC Fan

    I think you are right. The current executives at NBC are a disaster. Other than the Voice, they can’t seem to do anything right. Rather than acknowledge failure, they will shuffle the schedule, retool the show, and then probably make it worse, not better. Then they will find some new sitcoms to redo the whole process.

  • Chris

    I just hope Guys With Kids gets renewed. Everybody remember when everything was in repeats and Whitney and Guys With Kids got a 1.8 and 1.7 respectively? I’d like to see how Go On and The New Normal do with all repeats. I doubt the numbers would be as high but we’ll never know because NBC actually sticks its neck out to save those shows. Hence, The Voice lead in. smh
