  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/5 in metered-market households and a 0.4/3 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.3/5 in metered-market households) tied CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.3/5).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.4/3 in 18-49) tied "Late Late Show" (0.4/3).

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.

    It’s spring time, NCIS always gets low this time of year nothing to worry about LOL

    I know here in CA it was 80-90 degrees, so most people were probably out enjoying the nice warm weather.

  • PW

    like really less people watching TV because of daylight savings time…….

  • CC

    Looks like America did not watch much t.v. last night with about all shows slipping!

  • Brian

    Go Body Of Proof! Best show on ABC!

    oh yeah, and Randy…Go Kill Yourself…. Idiot !

  • rgxx

    I can’t believe anyone is watching “Ready For ____ A Waste of Time”

    That is NOT Romance – come on people – wake up & turn the channel or turn it OFF!

    Ouch For Hells Kitchen.

  • Rich

    The Voice will adjust up,no problem.

  • lois

    Ñ they cancel hart of dixie already? They should announce it already!

  • lois

    Why can”t say hart of Dixie is canceled ? Only two episodes left. Its can’t get any better.

  • Andrea

    I’m liking Body of Proof better this season. I hope they renew it.

  • ethan

    Please cancel Heart of dixie..complete waste of CW space, esp when they have lots of interesting pilots.

  • Skylar James

    @Jarrod: time to grow up dude

  • Jorge

    I think HOD will adjust up

  • Valentin

    People who are writing “Heart of Dixie” Pathetic much? :)
    HoD will be adjust up hopefully but it’ll still be renewed ;)

  • Pamela

    CW aired all shows in NY. I’m not saying its a reason for any show getting lower ratings but NY had 2 playoff hockey games (Rangers and Islanders), playoff basketball and both the Mets and Yankees. It was sports heaven for my husband and probably a few others.

  • MFitz

    Boo f en Hoo.NCIS is a piece of trash. I know may people and have worked in a very busy neighborhood tavern for the last several years. I have NEVER met anyone who watches that stupidity. It must be a bunch of post menopause
    bags drooling over the wrinkled up Kevin Costner want to be who stiffly walks thru that meandering fake garbage. He never could act(Mr. Harmon) and the whole premise is ridiculous as if our Navy is SOOO filled with crime and criminals that we have a giant case every week ha we only had 7 detainees in Guantanamo tried in over 10 years by the military. This show needs to go the way of the unit and other militaristic propaganda vehicles as America is totally sick of wars and military solutions for civilian problems so I am glad this turd is staring to float and ready to flush CBS is caught in some old fogey time warp and needs to go away

  • silvit


    I’d like to disagree on The Good Wife this season. It was nothing to talk about and in some cases offensive (Nick storyline I’m looking at you). Its down ratings vs last year are totally deserved.

  • MFitz

    @Bob you are an idiot the voice pulled big ratings last week and damn good ratings Monday in actuality they have grown since the auditions this season so get your head out of you know where and accept it. The Voice is the new HIT music show and you are an obvious hater Like me for NCrapIS lol

  • jj

    Way to go Body Of Proof. Surprise at the demos number of NCIS. It is still better than average but not by NCIS standard.

  • Michael

    Bob, the audition process has been over now for the past 2-3 weeks already on The Voice. Last week the show hot a 5.2; 4.6 during the battle rounds.

  • todd35

    Did anybody else catch the shout out that NCIS LA gave “The Voice” last night?
