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.

    Some people just don’t like HOD and want it cancelled for its own sake. I happen to be one of them.

  • MichaelChickless

    Did the site administrators die and leave Alex in charge?

  • Fred

    @MichaelChickless

    I laughed as well. Its the way you typed it.
    You have a way with words.

    Go to the latest Season to Date averages. Very few posts there, but I enjoy watching the ratings race. The first comment is hilarious and very accurate as well.

  • JSunkist

    The huge drop between Voice and Ready for Love… is just humiliating… Rename the show to “Ready for Broken Hearts and Poor Ratings”

  • Justin121

    @MichaelChickless

    Because your response was so random.

    @Fred

    Where can find the Season to Date averages?

    Do mean the Broadcast Top 25 post?

    Sorry, can’t post a link but look for a post from April 16th titled “2012-2013 Season: CBS Leads…”

    The first comment made me chuckle as well.

  • Solelle

    I still think HOD will get the renewal from CW syndication money is good money. And I don’t think HOD costs as much to make as some of its other shows.
    I think HOD will get just enough eps to syndicate. B&B fans dont hate on HOD its not your competition for renewal TCD is. lol :D

  • gem is truely outragious

    @match
    I am confused if you dont like a show just dont watch it. It is not hurting you for it to be on tv. I hate nikita but I do realize I can just not watch it. Why wish all those people out of jobs when the fact that the show is on is not effecting your life at all. Do you not have other tv channels to watch when it is on or a hobby maybe? Just saying your comment is very odd.

    @PurpleDrazi

    Found it:

    “CW needs to avg 17 pts per remaining weeks to catch cbs for #1.”

    LOL.
