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.

    Castle trolls are getting annoying fast.

  • asdf

    Castle usually adjusts down by a tenth of a point. But overall, they’re doing quite well. Demographics are changing, reducing the importance of “The Demo” to advertisers, and in raw viewership Castle is beating both its rivals put together. Even in the demo Castle has been doing great.

    Revolution seems to be doing ok, though Zerg’s right that with that kind of lead-in why are they not winning? Hawaii 5-0 is in real trouble at this point. Punting in sweeps week tells me that even CBS is losing heart.

  • John

    Ateofi is an H50 troll dear. Notorious for her hate towards Castle, which has now been forwarded to Revolution, around these parts.

  • bjssp


    I always wondered how much Harry’s Law cost the network. Were it able to get 1.5, would it have worked on Friday or Saturday night?

  • Carl

    I know that most show struggle after The Voice, but I still don’t understand why Revolution is there. I can’t see that many people watching The Voice and then saying, “I can’t wait to see Elizabeth Mitchell purse her lips in a world without electricity.” Why not have Elizabeth Mitchell purse her lips in a lighthearted family drama (do they still make those on networks)? The annoying kid sister of Dean Winchester doesn’t help matters.

  • Antonio

    Revolution is still doing good compared to recent serialized television shows. Many people were saying that after this hiatus the show would fall into the 1s, but it has yet to do so. It is not “the next The Event or Flashforward” as so many people have stated.

  • BD

    I don’t get the 4 month break for Revolution either..I used to watch it Monday nights then once it got moved I stopped thinking about it so I catch up on it later via on demand. I think the show has gotten better though since its earlier episodes

  • mindilee

    Can anyone tell me why most dramas are new this week but H50 wasn’t. I believe it has 24 episodes like the others. CBS running a repeat and then a new one and then a repeat is doing it no favors.

    Will be interested to see what Castle does with their bomb episode. H50 ran one a few weeks ago where Danno is stuck by a bomb and McGarrett refuses to leave his side as well.

  • Billy

    I agree with everyone who says CBS will not move TBBT from Thursdays. However, CBS needs to use TBBT more productively. Having a lead in like that simply prop up a 10 year old show is a complete waste. They need to use TBBT either to launch a new show, or at least to build up 2BG.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Lisa – You can’t compare Harry’s Law’s ratings to anything on another network. It was one of the most-viewed (Maybe even the most? I don’t have time to look it up right now…) shows on NBC, but it got canned because of its demo. Regardless of how many viewers it had, it had more than a lot of shows that were renewed. There’s no magic number of total viewers that makes a show untouchable.


    @Leoben. If you think mass killings in a gym with axes n such is “yawn” then idk what would exite you. Yes, it’s not a perfect show. But it does have a sense of unpredictability. Something that isn’t comon among broadcasters. Joes master plan was to have his wife & son reunite, and to his helpers were there to carry out actions for him to write his book.

  • Dude

    @ asdf
    castle was adjusted down like once in the last 2 months or so. it wont get adjusted down today. revolution on the other hand most likely will. castle will win the night after the finals, no doubt about that. the question will be whether it’ll beat DWTS. since DWTS usually adjusts up i expect another tie in the demo though.

  • Sawyer


    I would watch Liz Mitchell in family drama or a comedy or just read the phone book. I like Revolution, if they kill her off as they have done on Revolution with others. I would not watch it. Her character Rachael is the most entertaining and intriguing of all the shows characters, and proved it again in last nights episode. The show is doing better than the Event and FlashForward. The major networks just do not give a Syfy show a chance. I know it is on after the Voice and I believe that is a good move by NBC. The show needs to run consecutively 17 episodes. The show is very serialized. People who watch only network tv are not use to the cable concept and that is the way of the future .I also think the writers focused to much on Charlie the first half and turned viewers off.

  • Hardline_Pro

    At least Revolution isn’t getting below a 2.0, the 4 month break really hurt the show.

    Also, yay for The Following.

  • Sam

    If things go really badly for Revolution today, it will get adjusted down to a 2.0 in the finals.

  • DanaK

    Don’t neglect the likelihood that Revolution’s lower Springs ratings are due to Daylight Savings, just like most ratings in the Spring are lower than in the Fall.

  • Brian

    Castle has no competition ..duh, why wouldn’t it go up?

  • Katelyn

    Last night’s episode of Revolution was awesome! They’re getting better and better every week and I wish the ratings would reflect that. Castle’s good, I’m just sick of seeing the same whodunit episode over and over.

  • João Lucas

    Hannibal with that lead-in do such better.

  • Statix

    So, Castle and Beckett start a discussion quite often before getting in the car and that discussion then immediately continues when they get out again at a crime scene. Do they forget that they actually spend time in the car driving to the crime scene? What do they talk about while driving?
