  • 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 at 666 viewers. Lol

  • Ateofi

    Revolution didn’t profit from The voice rise as well as absence of H50! This dreadful show is sinking. Where is Mike, he predicted the ratings would reach 2.8 to 3.0 ! The following numbers are still very decent.

  • Dillan

    I hope TCD can get a boost for its final next week. :(

  • Densino


    Horrible episode with a stupid premise

  • charlie

    The word “flop” MUST die.
    Bye Carrie, I’ll miss you.
    Ouch at Revolution and The Following. Revolution vs. The 100th episode of Castle and The Voice is putting The Following down.


    in the end of the day its coming to summer numbers dip and pvr is killing all these shows haha no one watches live

  • Petar Ivanov

    @Revolution and The Following are sinking.

    And still best new shows of the season even in April. Of course they will be down. Further the spring(going into summer) more down will be. No surprise here. And still they are both with netflix deals. Expect next season to get boost from that.

  • Densino

    CBS repeats floppingly bag

  • Michael1

    CBS repeats all did better than new episodes of “Happy Endings” during the first week of their “save the show” campaign.

  • Dan

    Great for both Castle and Revolution, Castle built on DWTS and definitely deserves another season, Revolution could do better after The Voice but NBC will take a 2.3 if it continues at this rate it will be renewed.

  • Jackson

    Revolution and Following finally going down in ratings to match quality of the shows.

  • Densino





  • Ateofi

    Petar Ivanov
    Revolution with ratings 2.3 is now within Elementary reach.

  • Hmm

    @ Densino

    You’re in the minority with that opinion.

  • Cougar Town Forever

    I’m sure DWTS will be back next season. But that is turning into a BIG problem for ABC.

  • Densino


    lol i’m in the MAJORITY

  • Oliver

    Week 2 of Revolution’s inevitable meltdown

    Watch it get adjusted down too, because The Voice overruns.

    NBC will be happy they shorted its season to 20 episodes by the end of its run.

  • Jay

    Revolution is absolute dog S#%$%!

  • Daw Johnson


    No he’s not. “Revolution” is tolerable but mediocre, and “The Following” is considered a “so bad it’s good” show. Neither is considered anywhere near the best TV has to offer.

  • Dan

    @Cougar Town Forever – DWTS isn’t a beast anymore but its still holds up well for ABC like Idol for FOX and Biggest Loser for NBC. The bad All Stars edition just sunk the show last fall.
