via press note:

In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:
  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.5/7 with an encore telecast; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.1/5 with an encore; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.6/7.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 Wednesday results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.7/4 with an encore; "Late Show," 0.5/2 with an encore; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.9/5.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.5/5 in metered-market households and a 0.5/3 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.1/4 in metered-market households with an encore) tied CBS's first-run "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.1/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.4/3 in 18-49 with an encore) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).
  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/3 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/2 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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Season 2 of Smash might have been able to get better numbers if it had been put behind 2 hrs of Voice on Tuesday, but now, with NBC having shipped it off to Saturdays and probably damaged it thoroughly as a result, they would embarrass themselves if they put Smash back on Tuesdays and preceded it with 2hrs of Voice. NBC should consider expanding Voice to 2hrs on Tuesdays and cutting RFL back to 1hr. I don’t think putting a new show in or new episodes of Hannibal at 10pm (in addition to Thursdays) would be a good idea this late in the season. Unless RFL goes below 1.0 (which it certainly might), they should probably leave things the way they are. I believe Voice goes to 2 hrs at the end of the month and RFL will be 1 hr (for that week only and then again one time in May and once in June for the finale), so maybe NBC will be watching closely how things go. Whatever happens, RFL’s relative failure is Karma for this Smash lover.

  • loL

    I hope HOD will adjust up :/ But still.. It’s got better ratings than Carrie diaries

    @James
    Why did NBC bother to replace Do No Harm with a repeat of L&O:SVU?

    Firstly did you read my previous post at all?

    Secondly Do No Harm debuted in January and was pulled in February with Hannibal lined up to replace it in April. That’s simply not the same situation as a show that debuts in April.

    Thirdly Do No Harm debuted with a 0.9 and dropped to a 0.7. Ready For Love debuted with a 1.5 and dropped to a 1.3.

    Ready for Love total disaster given the lead-in.

    @Tommy
    ABC president Paul lee was asked whether DWTS was a goner. He replied “DWTS has 16 million, this is still a good rating”.

    Have you never read a PR statement before? Especially ABC. They are positively shameless in their outrageous PR.

    Of course the guy is going to say the show is doing fine. All shows are…right up until they are canceled. And all Network presidents love their shows…right up until they don’t.

  • alffan

    NBC should move the Tuesday show to 9:00 – would be even bigger away from NCIS and then they could lead it into one drama series like they do on Monday …

  • networkman

    If ABC ever decided to try a drama on Friday nights once more, Body of Proof would be the perfect candidate. On CBS, I really like seeing NCIS in the 9pm timeslot. Would CBS move it to 9pm in the Fall? It may finally help launch a successful show at 10pm. Intelligence would be my choice to take that timeslot.

  • Ultima

    @Alex
    Because apparently they do this every year. Don’t you remember all those examples of CBS foreshadowing a shows new place on the schedule by test running repeats there?

    Except that NCIS has been in the same timeslot forever and CBS is clearly just trying to get out of airing repeats in its regular timeslot in an effort to have the official #1 show.

  • Jayson

    I wonder if NBC is regretting the burn-off of Smash on Saturday? I would have tried Smash out after The Voice since the shows are about music/performance. See if that could have improved Smash’s #s. It certainly couldn’t do any worse then Ready for Love.

    Body of Proof seems to be holding up decently against Golden Boy even with the slight lead that GB has in demos. Did Vegas do better in the time slot then Golden Boy?

  • rob60990

    What’s with all this BS about Body of Proof doing oh so much better than Private Practice which was cancelled? Of course it would do better, it’s not airing after Apartment 23 which dipped below a 1 several times. The best BOP will get is another midseason renewal. It certainly won’t be on the fall schedule.

    CBS does this nonsense every year switching repeats around to different timeslots and nothing seems to come of it. Sometimes they’ve even aired a new episode of a show in another timeslot and again nothing came of it. However, switching NCIS & NCIS LA wouldn’t be such a terrible idea.

    When will Splash stop falling? ABC, enough promoting this so called new hit series.

  • rob60990

    “I wonder if NBC is regretting the burn-off of Smash on Saturday?”

    NBC doesn’t regret moving a show that was pulling below a 1 during the week to Saturdays. That is what a network is supposed to do. Even NBC has their standards.

    “I would have tried Smash out after The Voice since the shows are about music/performance.”

    It aired 15 episodes straight out of The Voice last season and lost more than half The Voice’s audience so it didn’t deserve more airings out of their highest rated program.

  • Lauren

    The desperate BATB fans who want HOD cancellation : LOL!!

    It won’t make your show better.

  • Joseph

    I wonder if broadcast network viewing was again affected by coverage of the aftermath of Monday’s (April 15th) terrorist attack in Boston on the cable news channels.

    I would think that there would have been heavy viewing of cable news channels across New England.

    @Justin121 “OK that is one of the funniest replys on TVByTheNumbers EVER”

    Glad I could entertain you? But why would an accurate rating prediction be so funny?

  • Jacob

    They really need to scratch Ready for Love especially for TWO HOURS.
