In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:
  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.9/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.2/6.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 Wednesday results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.8/4; "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 1.4/5 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" (1.4/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.2/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.4/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).
  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/4 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/2 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with 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.

    @Kumar – What numbers are you looking at? Mindy was down 0.2 and came in fourth place in front of only a repeat on the CW. That’s no hit.

    Why did Fox renew this show again?

  • Bee

    if you look at the half-hours, the voice rose pretty sharply at 9PM with both points being 4.0 and above. i guess that’s why DWTS, mindy, and NCIS:LA took a hit. that’s the only explanation i have.

  • Kumar

    @s0303.

    No, those numbers are solid for Mindy. The show is hit that’s why renewed. Don’t hate, ok.

  • Mon

    The Voice wreaked havoc at 9pm. Ouch at NCIS: LA, DWTS and TMP. Grimm did okay. It probably will be back to Friday next season if the numbers don’t improve a lot. Bye Golden Boy, it was nice watching you for half a season.

    @Samunto

    Did you expect more from Grimm? I surely didn’t.
    What makes you think Hannibal would have performed better?

    ABC must surely be disappointed with the 0.9 for SPLASH and 1.5 for DWTS.
    Awful ratings for a Tuesday. ABC needs to totally revamp Tuesday next season.

    Wonder what Body of Proof would have done with such weak support.

  • Michael

    The weather is absolutely stunning int he east coast/mid western states now. People rather enjoy the weather than stay home and watch TV lol.

  • TheFrenchGuy

    Both NCIS will be adjusted up one or two tenths. LA is not strong enough to face The Voice, Dancing with the Stars and New Girl at the same time. Last year it also hit lows against The Voice and DWTS.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Nikki – I’m assuming you don’t know… anything, really. Look at the ratings for the rest of the CW’s lineup. That 0.5 is great for the network; in fact, it’s the highest of any show on Monday, Tuesday, or Friday, and on par with quite a few airings of Beauty and the Beast on Thursday.

  • Fred

    @ Michael

    Good weather hasn’t stopped The VOICE.
    The 2 hour expanded edition seems to be more to blame than the weather.

  • Ram510

    ABC should just have DWTS down to 1 cycle next seasoning January. Use it as Olympic spakle

  • WoWza

    So, The voice is not very high. Actually, not higher than Idol at the same point probably. Maybe it keps dropping like Idol… and has low 3.1 or 3.2 in two weeks? Yeah.

  • WoWza

    Also, Kudos to Hells Kitchen. Expect it as a stable durring the season? I think yes.

  • Wright

    Great for Grimm!!! WTH New Girl was really good last night. What’s happening to NCIS:LA? I was hoping HOD would be at 0.6 maybe it will adjust up in the finals.

  • Bryan

    @Michael

    What are you talking about the Weather has been awful the last few days on the East Coast and Mid West. Today is the first I’ve seen the sun since the weekend. Stop making excuses!

  • WoWza

    DWTS is so low. Wow. Next season 1.1′s ?

  • Ashley

    Woohooo for Grimm!!! That’s why some of us think moving Grimm of Fridays may get more viewers. They’re just trying it out now. Hopefully some will get hooked. Bad for NCIS LA. Never could get into that one. Grimm did pretty amazing considering the competition of the night. Only 3 shows did better.

  • Michael

    Fred, you’re making it seem like The Voice was the only show that fell lol.

  • Carmen

    Grimm did pretty good (at least by NBC expectations) but far from great.

    At best, it showed that for one data point (week)that Grimm can perform as well as Revolution with a Voice lead in.

    But I think we all kind of supspected that. But one week does not a season make and the question would become (should NBC decide to leave Grimm on Tuesday) would be if it can maintain this average without the Voice

    Personally, I doubt it. NBC should keep Grimm on Friday where it can stick around for a while.

    Some fans will get puffed up over the (overnight) 2.0 demo, but the fact is that Grimm did, however, face very weak competition and dropped a troublesome 5.6 million viewers and 46% of its lead in demo.

  • Stella

    New low for NCIS:LA :(

    I actually enjoyed the episode, hopefully it rises next week and for it’s season finale.
