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.

    Grimm did MUCH better than I expected. Go Grimm!

  • Nick

    It kind of irritates me that NBC just gives a great timeslot away to Grimm, a show that just pulled a 1.4 on Friday, yet it didn’t give Parenthood that Voice lead-in at all during the season. It was left to grow from the horrible lead-in that The New Normal was, and it did actually grow. Multiple times.

    Revolution is sinking now, and Grimm didn’t seem to fit either. If Parenthood had that sized lead-in, it probably could’ve hit a 2.5. Same goes for Chicago Fire. NBC needs to start putting more faith in these shows, because they’re actually the ones that can hold an audience on their own.

  • Grey

    The conclusion to last week’s cliffhanger on “NCIS” was a bit of let down for me. SPOILER ALERT for any one who hasn’t watched it yet; big HUGE car crash and they basically just walk out of the hospital a little banged up. Please.

    As for the Amanda Knox interview, I should have watched “Grimm.” :-|

  • Michael

    Hell’s Kitchen is really holding its own against tough competition during that time-slot!

  • Rebecca

    Not every place has good weather. Waiting on snow here today (central Colorado) and it’s COLD.

    Enjoyed Mindy and New Girl, as usual. Glad they’ll be back for more next season. Grimm too. Hard to watch mid week, though…I prefer it on Friday.

  • Dan S

    Woo Hoo Go Grimm. I knew it could get 2.0 but I fear it’ll likely adjust down to 1.9 in the finals. All the same if it can maintain these numbers it may have found a new home on Tues. If it stays there Parenthood would fit nicely on Thur with their comedy block. On Fridays Dracula could air in Grimms old slot & get similar numbers.

  • Austin

    Yes! NCIS is up! that episode was great

  • jT

    new girl will bounce back

  • aj

    the voice tomorrow is a clip show? will it be included in it’s season average?

  • Joseph

    If “Grimm”‘s numbers on Tuesdays at 10 (ET/PT) hold up, that’s where the show will air this Fall.

    “Grimm”‘s old Friday slot will likely be taken up by reality, a newsmagazine, or a rerun.

  • Brian

    Good numbers for Grimm. I don’t think it’ll adjust down, but possibly have no adjustments! I still think it’ll go back to Fridays though cause it does great there and its current ratings would probably drop the 5 smilies on Tuesdays if we didn’t get renewed already.

  • Jon

    @kumar…..I’d hardly call a 1.3 in the demo and less than 3 million viewers a hit. I do like the show, but it could just as easily have been cancelled with the numbers its pulled in.

  • Holly

    @Nick,

    t kind of irritates me that NBC just gives a great timeslot away to Grimm, a show that just pulled a 1.4 on Friday, yet it didn’t give Parenthood that Voice lead-in at all during the season.

    It’s not like this is all part of some nefarious plan by NBC to support all shows not named Parenthood. They were quite content to leave Grimm on Friday (and by the way, 1.4 on a Friday is good because it’s on Friday, which has lower viewership levels than Tuesday). They only moved it because Ready for Love bombed so badly and they’d prefer to air reruns or whatever on Friday than on Tuesday nights. I also seriously doubt Parenthood would get much of a boost in its 4th season regardless of the lead-in.

  • Jon

    @Fred…..The Voice hasn’t begun their live shows yet, hence everything they are airing right now has been taped

  • Jon

    I wonder why the big drop off into NCIS LA. Something must have turned viewers off. Normally NCIS LA holds a large portion of NCIS audience.

  • Alex

    @Holly
    I also seriously doubt Parenthood would get much of a boost in its 4th season regardless of the lead-in.

    Also its not like Parenthood needed the boost. It pulled a decent stable audience every week and has been the only broadcast show to manage that at Tuesday 10PM this season.

  • Alex

    @Jon
    I wonder why the big drop off into NCIS LA. Something must have turned viewers off. Normally NCIS LA holds a large portion of NCIS audience.

    And normally it isn’t airing against The Voice.

  • Alex

    @Nick
    NBC needs to start putting more faith in these shows, because they’re actually the ones that can hold an audience on their own.

    Firstly I continue to question this love everyone seems to have for Chicago Fire’s ratings.

    More importantly though if these shows can hold an audience on their own that what’s the purpose of moving them (and others) around the schedule so they can get a Voice lead-in? Surely its better to keep them where they are and where the audience has clearly found and likes them? It just risks doing more harm than good to the schedule as a whole.

  • spin

    New Girl and The Mindy Project could be pulling in better numbers if FOX wasn’t so inconsistent with their scheduling, even with the 2 hour episode of The Voice airing at the same time. :\

  • mando

    Chicago Fire doesnt have to be boosted by The Voice. It grows on its own. Leave that be on Wed.
    I wish Parenthood would be boosted by the voice.
