  • 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.

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.

    Hannibal is not exactly “family friendly” programing, Give me a break! It wouldn’t do any better than REVOLUTION out of the VOICE and I’ve seen the first two episodes of Hannibal.

  • BigBrotherFan

    YOU Hannibal fans should start a petition to have it on after the voice. Totally see your reasoning but it wouldnt do ANY better than REVOLUTION and I love to see the excuses then! “OH IT WAS A MIDSEASON SHOW” blah blah blah

  • Jon

    why are people really concerned if Revolution beats Castle? In the grand scheme of things it means nothing, it is still one of the highest rated programs on NBC, and when it comes time for renewal that’s all that truly matters

  • Ateofi

    If anyone is a troll, that would be you. I love Castle and I dialogues Revolution, plain simple!

  • Ateofi

    Sorry, I meant I dislike Revolution.

  • Mari

    Really Happy for Castle and The Following. I just wish Hannibal was getting The Voice as lead in. In my opinion the show is great.

  • Connman

    DVR skipped Revolution again last night. Must have thought it was a repeat (AT&T U-verse)…

  • The End

    @dialogues Revolution

    Are you commenting here from a Phone, or another mobile type device? Seems like it, I mean, your comment to me suggests the word correction software you use no doubt is causing you problems, I had that issue too when commenting here via phone when on the move lol

    I could be wrong..

  • Xerophytes

    Wow. The Following skewed young. Look at the total viewers of Bones and The Following.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @ Petar Ivanov

    Two and a Half Men will probably end next season (if it doesn’t end this season) so The Big Bang Theory can move to Monday at 9 and 2 Broke Girls to Thursday at 8.

    8:00 – How I Met Your Mother
    8:30 – Mike & Molly
    9:00 – The Big Bang Theory
    9:30 – Mom
    10:00 – Beverly Hills Cop

    8:00 – 2 Broke Girls
    8:30 – Two and a Half Men
    9:00 – Person of Interest
    10:00 – Elementary

    TAHM is so expensive and without TBBT lead out will be DEAD. Its too old.

  • Brandy

    Good 90210 rose, though it’s ratings are terrible.

  • Pavelsauce

    @Leoben Conoy
    Oh well. Rejoice I guess? The lowest common denominator wins again!

    Umm, isn’t that the point of network TV? Shows on network TV should have mass appeal if they want to survive. I hate it when people always complain about how “bad” shows get higher ratings that the ones they consider good, and when they complain about the tastes of people who don’t watch their shows, or of Americans in general. To me, the latter always amounts to “LOL Americans are teh stoopidz!!!!!1!one!”.

  • Carl

    @Sawyer, that was part of my joke – I think a lot of people are watching for Elizabeth Mitchell. I think they should give her a show that is a little different. I don’t know why NBC thinks this awkward grimness is a great fit for The Voice.

  • Misterbee

    All these comments where people trash the shows that are up against their favorites are ridiculous. Has anyone told you folks that these are just television shows? Bits of entertainment? A way to get you to look a advertising? Hell, I work on one of the shows that gets discussed here, and if it were to get cancelled, I would take a heavy financial hit. So I think its fair to say that I have a greater stake in these shows than most of you do. But you know what? All shows get cancelled eventually. And blathering on about how unfair it is that your show didn’t win the night just makes you look petty.

    Want to know a secret? Winning your time slot is not the whole battle. In fact, most of the time, it’s not even half the battle. What else matters? Putting up better numbers than the other shows on your network, that’s what. When it comes time to decide who’s coming back next season, each network looks at their slate and decides who is pulling in the most revenue, and who is likely to continue to do so. Thats a huge part of the equation.

    Now, you might not have a top 20 show, but if your revenue exceeds your budget by a better ratio than the other shows on your network, you prolly get to come back. If your show puts up big numbers, but costs a fortune, and is a problem child? You prolly get to come back too. But you better watch your back. Because the network folks like to do business with people that make their lives easier. Folks that have trouble getting scripts out, have massive cost overruns, erratic actors, or other production problems put their shows at risk by becomeing more trouble than they are worth. So when the numbers slip, away they go….

    I have blathered on enough. Remember folks, its just a TV show….

    Does it really matter how much an actor (in this case Nathan Fillion) weights when it comes to entertainment value? I think not! I’ll take Nathan Fillion’s TV series ‘CASTLE’ against any competition no matter how much he weights. His comedic timing on a mostly dramatic series brightens up my day!! Bring it on CASTLE!!

  • A fan


    Weight isn’t that of an issue. I mean look at Bones. David Boreanaz looks in good shape as he did since Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Nathan isn’t. Same procedural, same old, same old? Look at Bones S7, the show took a hit when its main character got pregnant and took a maternity leave, reduced to 13 episodes and the viewers just wasn’t the same. Though I’m sure her pregnancy wasn’t the only reason.

    You might not like it, but there are others who do. It’s not exactly the same. NCIS is a long running procedural, remains strong year after year.

  • miss may

    The Following is an inconsistent show. Some episodes are very well watchable while others are painful to watch. last night was the best one so far this season. But the show needs to churn out better, well thought out episodes or else it might not have a great second season.

    As for Revolution, it’s a stable show and will survive on NBC. Not like NBC has got much going for it other than The Voice.
