Late Night Ratings:

In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:
  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.8/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.0/5; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.4/6.
  • 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.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.4/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.0/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.4/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.2/2).

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.

  • Michael

    The Voice is still killing it! The show is obviously going to adjust in the finals!

  • CBSviewer

    @ Petar Ivanov

    So next season Mike & Molly will be canceled if Mom is a hit ?

  • Babar Suhail

    Rules has been getting decent ratings for the past six seasons. I wonder what happened this season.

  • bjssp


    I’m quite interested in seeing how Grimm does after TV. Seems like it might be a sign that the network is considering moving it to a new night.

  • Billy


    It doesn’t matter. ROE has virtually no chance of a renewal.

  • John

    That was one sublime hour of television from Revolution! People have proved yet again that they don’t like good tv. Its gotten awesome since the midseason finale people!

  • Wright

    Revolution is definitely not going to end up like Smash. I also don’t understand the references about retaining The Voice’s audience. None of the shows are able to do that, so it really shouldn’t affect Revolution.

  • Billy

    BTW, for everyone who thinks syndication is the magic potent for raising a shows ratings, ROE went into syndication this year, and its ratings have dropped dramatically. Only TBBT got a huge bump from syndication in the last several years.

  • Petar Ivanov

    I hope they don’t move TBBT to Mondays. It’s doing great on Thursdays. CBS needs to revamp their Monday nights with new shows period. The Voice is killing it. I likeThe Voice and TBBT not competing for the same audience.

    New shows can;t hold on monday vs the voice and footbal games on espn.

    TBBT will be the same meast on Monday. And will save cbs comedy day.

    TBBT/Moms/HIMYM(final season)/new show on monday

    TAHM(final season)/2BG on thursday can work.

    With mike and molly with rules role for midseason show.

    But its too many changs for cbs and i doubt that.

  • DanaK

    I’m not sure anything following The Voice will retain too much of the lead-in. Smash could maybe do 60% at times (not counting the first episode or 2 which I don’t know the retention numbers), but it was usually around 40-50%. Revolution seems to be doing about the same. Ready For Love, as we all know, did far worse and that was for the Tuesday show. So I don’t think Rev is doing all that bad for what it’s able to retain. The shows following Idol usually drop by half as I recall.

  • Kissan

    The Voice did good even though I would’ve liked to see if it hit another season high. And Revolution on the other hand, I REALLY want to see how it can do without The Voice. Too bad DWTS went down I really enjoyed it last night, really hope Zendaya wins. It’s also awesome that Castle beat it, just hope it doesn’t get adjusted down. 90210 is doing just horrible, so horrible that I don’t even think it can break a million viewers for their series finale:( Can’t wait to see how Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and Secret Life did in the cable ratings.

    By the way, here’s my ABC Schedule for Fall 2013:


    8:00-Once Upon A Time







    8:00-SHIELD(new show)

    9:00-DWTS Results(Sept.-Nov.) Suburgatory & Super Fun Night(Jan.-Mar.)

  • Greg Eckes

    CBS is running out of steam on their comedy block. What I mean is that it is hard to keep developing hits to plug in the holes.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @So next season Mike & Molly will be canceled if Mom is a hit ?

    I think will take rules role in next 2-3 years like midseason show when new shows bomp.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Billy

    I’m not wasting my time Im just hoping for another season. I know there is almost no chances Rules get Renewed but I really like the Show.

  • Mark

    The Following was amazing last night. It’s been a while since I’ve watched such a good show.

  • Chris

    God, I hate it when people post their dream schedules. It takes up so much space. No one cares.

  • Bryan

    Rules is gone. Anyone who thinks otherwise is in a fantasy. CBS can do better. Good riddance. It’s gags are getting old, Russell’s a perv, Timmy is from South Africa not India, Jeff always forgets his wife’s birthday. We get it.

  • Rebecca

    Yes, Castle! Great to see Ioan Gruffudd (from Ringer & Horatio Hornblower) on it last night, too – thank you, Casting! hehe

    Also enjoyed RoE, fun episode last night with the bachelor party on the subway train. Four episodes left – hope they’re all fun like that. It’s true some might not have known it was a new episode – up until recently futoncritic had a rerun scheduled for last night.

  • David


    Like your schedule, just one small thing, Shark Tank would have to go to Thursday 8 if you had The Neighbors replacing it on Friday..

  • BigBrotherFan

    That dude who always attacks the following with me, forget his name, Samarai maybe..

    Dude, I am one to admit when I am wrong and as much as I love THE FOLLOWING it’s PILOT was untouchable it has become annoying for me to sit through at times. So I see what all you tantrums where about!

    *below spoilers*

    THERE IS NO WAY the FBI would screw up this much. How in the WORLD *spoiler* and WHY IN THE WORLD would you bunch everyone in one space in a gym when there is a group of serial killers lose…MAKES TOTAL SENSE!

    How the HECK *SPOILER* is Joe still alive? Dude, should be dead by now or have really bad health problems. Not being able to drive a freakin boat! and WHY THE HELL did Claire not kill him when she clearly had the chance.

    The only person who didn’t see that coming was JACOB by far! I am looking forward to what should be THE HIGHLIGHT of the season EMMA getting wacked, finally! I hope she doesn’t get a grand death either, just have Ryan randomly shot her. Move on. Find joe. Thats it.

    All in all when I ignore all these things I love this show. Nobody is safe (except Bacon, of course) they have killed off TWO pretty important cult followers and cast members in the last two episodes and something tells me Claire isn’t safe, at all. Cant wait for the wrap up! :) Glad to see it at better numbers too!


    I don’t watch this but nobody answered my questions..is Kim Raver a main cast members or was she only in the 3 episodes listed on IMDB? I really like her since 24 and the nine and if she’s in more I’ll totally give the series a fair shot!
