  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 Wednesday results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.8/4; "Late Show," 0.5/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.9/4.

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.

    Revolution and The Following are sinking.

  • Robsten_Fan

    Goodbye Carrie Diaries, you were fun while you lasted.

  • Densino

    The Flopping


    The Carrie Flop

  • DenverDean

    Horrific numbers for CBS repeats.

  • Densino



  • Jonathan

    Dancing With The Stars had more viewers than the Voice last night. Did that happen last Fall?

  • BH

    OUCH at Revolution

    Voice is hurting The Following!

  • Colin

    Dancing with the flops

  • Densino


    Nothing is hurting the following

    People are realising its a piece of crap

  • Sarah

    Bones back up to 2.0. :) And hopefully it gets adjusted up.

  • Smirker

    DWTS typically beats The Voice in total viewers, but skews old. The Voice dominates DWTS in the 18-49.

  • jess

    Castle beat DWTS in the demo (assuming there’s no adjustment down). Has that ever happened before?

  • Hmm

    So happy to see Castle up! Such a wonderful episode! And obviously not lead in dependent since it had a better demo than DWTS….

    That’s a tumble for Revolution. The half hour does not look good either, a 2.6 to a 2.1.

  • msupdate

    I just don’t get it. Why is it that many times the best shows are the ones which fall? The Following and Revolution are incredible.

  • Franko

    OMG Densino, you’re so funny! I mean, how you just put FLOP in the title, OMG!!! You should work on Daily Show. For real.

    In other news – The Following is probably dropping because it’s getting dumber and dumber.

  • Petar Ivanov

    The voice still BEAST. Revolution #2 and castle #3 strong.(scastle number 100 episode do well) ALl 8-10pm shows down. I guess low party begins.

    ps I think sooner than letter networks will start ending their shows in April not May and air other things in May sweeps. Expect too much lows in May.

    ps2 Revolution looks insane young. As i said in fall its drama side ala New girl. I guess beat easly in 18-34 and drop big time in 34-49.

  • Tommy

    I love how every comment so far is someone calling a different show a “flop.” If they really were all flops TV would be in a dire straight.

    Good for “Revolution” and “Castle” – anything above a 2.0 at 10:00pm is pretty good in my book.

  • JacobYates

    The Following will stay around the low 2s while the Voice is on, but it will stay in the mid to high 2s without the Voice. Not that it matters, it’s already renewed.

  • Colin

    @msupdate: Because american people like watching crap. Especially on networks.

  • Cyrax86

    100th episode of Castle was epic!
