  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 Wednesday results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.5/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.5/5 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 in 18-49 in the 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.

  • Mike

    No chance TBBT moves, highest rated show on Thursday nights, which is the biggest night of the week for TV.

  • John A

    Thats a great rating for The Following.

  • AaronExplicable

    Surprised by the gain for The Following. Kevin Williamson wrote next weeks finale so hopefully it’ll remind me why I watch this show.

  • Simon

    Pretty impressive jump for The Following! Hell for a serialized show all together! Good to see Revolution is at least stable, the haters will have to live with it for another season!

  • Nick

    Castle growing out of DWTS is phenomenal.

    Revolution, on the other hand…lol.

  • Baqinardo

    ROE is the highest rated show on CBS? wow!

    RoE will be ended by the end of the season.
    One of the cast said on Twitter weeks ago that they “wrapped the season, and probably series finale”. That means, IMO the producers already predicted the show wont survive for another year. And also one of the main actor already move on to the new show.

  • CrimTV


    Revolution is not a flop, if it was a flop it would’ve been cancelled by now and it’s still 1.63 in the Renew/Cancel index

  • SJ

    Haha, Castle beats Revolution! :D (Well, not yet, but wait for the finals!)

    I expect next week’s bomb-themed episode to do even better, as it’s the one where SPOILER tells SPOILER “I SPOILER you”. :)

    I’m done with The Following after next week’s finale. The most ridiculous and unintentionally hilarious drama show I’ve ever watched!

  • Kaaboom

    Go ‘The Following’! i wonder if 90210 can reach 1mill for it’s finale episode.

  • Billy

    Anybody who doesn’t think lead in is important just see ROE. Without the HIMYM original lead in it sunk like a rock.

    CBS is being very shrewd on Monday, May 13 they are using a The Big Bang Theory repeat at 8:30 in place of ROE. This will help the HIMYM and 2BG season finales with a good lead out and lead in.

    @No chance TBBT moves, highest rated show on Thursday nights, which is the biggest night of the week for TV.

    If they think monday comedies will drop even more they will move it and try to save monday. Thursday is best cbs day and will be fine and without TBBT.

  • WoWza

    The Following is indeed a hit. Good for FOX

  • Hmm

    Yay Castle! It had a 2.0 last week and it might actually beat Revolution in the finals!

  • SJ


    Actually, four of the six main cast members have already booked pilot roles. Rules of Engagement is history.

  • MichaelChickless

    The Following! Grisly but gripping episode!

    Revolution’s still doing great (for NBC at least).

  • Petar Ivanov

    Great for the following good for revolution. The following will end in April which is good. Revolution will go further the summer into may and june and that is bad. Hope won’t hurt second season. Both shows will get boost from netflix deal so if fans miss some episodes will watch them later.
    Expect both to be lock for season 3.

  • Mike

    Revolution is a flop creatively. I tried this show again in it’s just not there.

  • CrimTV

    @Peter Ivanov

    The Voice’s first season went through summer and it still managed to do well!

  • Fred

    Castle is a true hit for ABC.
    ABC might be tempted to move it to an earlier slot next season.

  • Wright

    Happy that The Following went up. Hopefully Revolution doesn’t adjust down.
