  • 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," 0.6/3.
 
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/5 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
 
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.2/4 in metered-market households) tied CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.2/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    r0ckmypants,

    CW was preempted in the Chicagoland area for the Cubs game so possibly in St Louis too, depending on if Cardinals games air on a CW affiliate.

  • Samunto

    I still think that Grimm should have stayed on Fridays and Hannibal should have gotten the extra exposure instead.
    NBC was hoping to pull a CSI when it moved from Friday. But after the olympics and now The Voice, it’s time to leave Grimm on Fridays and instead focus on getting it a decent lead-In.

    And yes, it seems that Lead-in do still matter!

  • Oliver

    Grimm is a megahit by Friday standards but middling in its current slot on Tuesday. I think NBC should move it back next season.

    Mindy is dying.

  • rob60990

    “The inexplicably early pick-up of Mindy gives all the bubbly comedies on ABC and NBC hope.”

    Explain how exactly?

  • David Howell

    My sense is that Grimm is, ratings wise, too good for Friday either side of cheap filler, and not good enough for post-Voice. Thursday at 10 if they keep SVU in its current role defending Chicago Fire?

    BoP feels to me like a scripted show that happens to have the same characteristics for the network as something like Wife Swap or Supernanny – bargain price, modest ratings, can be syndicated. I’d give it as many episodes as there are DWTS results shows next season. Which might be none!

  • Rich

    Never fear,The Voice will adjust up. It always does.

  • r0ckmypants

    @JEst – Thanks. I also see that the table has been fixed; Top Model was listed as 0.4 earlier, but it actually got 0.2.

  • Lisa

    HoD was pre-empted in Chicago again last night for the dang cubs!!! Don’t they take that into consideration? I tivo’d it at 10:30.

  • L

    Not quite sure why any network would give Splash (or Celebrity Splash, as it’s called here in Australia), a chance?… Our version of it was initially only ordered for 6 episodes— and after 3 of them, the network pulled the middle two out and skipped straight to the finale because numbers were getting Embarassing…

    Who COULDN’T see it being a flop? Seriously…. also, no pun intended.

  • Melissa

    @eridapo

    So where do you see it when they get to the top 5? Like Idol or lower? Say at 3.0

    I think mid 3′s is the lowest it will go, but I wouldn’t be shocked if it fell further.

  • Oliver

    @L

    It’s a hit in the Netherlands, the UK and France. A similar show is a hit in Germany (where it airs as a yearly special).

  • Ben

    BoP doesn’t have a good lead in anymore. But I think it’s a pretty solid rating..

  • bjssp

    Fox needs to either find New Girl a better lead in or move it to Thursdays and ship Glee back to Tuesdays. TXF and Idol aren’t what they once were (or, in the case of TXF, never was anything), but they are still the best lead-ins Fox has got.

    Grimm is no doubt benefitting from a better lead-in, but it could see growth if it stays in this more prominent slot or gets something similar. NBC should seriously consider swapping it and plugging something like SVU in its slot. In fact, a good Friday for NBC would be The Biggest Loser at 8:00, a final season of SVU (up until the spring, at which point a new drama could take over) followed by either Ironside or Night Shift. Or maybe the CF spin off.

    @ Samunto

    “And yes, it seems that Lead-in do still matter!”

    No one has ever said that lead-ins don’t matter. What get’s said here mostly is that lead-ins are rarely a factor when predicting if a show will be renewed or cancelled. It still comes down to absolute ratings in most cases.

  • TheFrenchGuy

    NCIS: Los Angeles earned a 2.2, up two tenths after last week’s series low 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.

    The Show earned a 2.4 not a 2.2.

  • bjssp

    @David Howell:

    Too soon to tell, I think. Part of the problem with using unscripted shows to support scripted shows is that it’s used only a few times, sometimes even once, and then never gain. That’s no way to build viewers for the long-term. We will only get, what, five or six episodes this season to see what it does behind The Voice? If it continues to drop, that’s one thing, but if not, it might be a sign that it could grow in the future.

  • eridapo

    @Melissa

    I have to agree. I say we will start seeing 3.3 to 3.6 in a couple of weeks because at this stage of the Voice it becomes like all singing competitions. The contestants start to sing the same tired songs that we been hearing since Idol season 1.

  • MichaelChickless

    Go NCISs!

    Where is all the hostility for these ratings for Grimm after The Voice that there was yesterday for Revolution?

  • Seth

    The Voice really seems to drop once the live shows start. Maybe they should do chair turning gimmicks until the end of the show?

    Grimm is strange case. On friday is megahit. On tuesday without any competiotion(golden boy and body of proof are not) is 0.2-0.3 tehths better with the voice lead. On monday was around 2.0 without the voice lead. If the voice give anything to grimm is not more the two may be three tehths max. I think Grimm will be the same numbers on tuesday and without the voice. may be tehth lower or two. Friday is where this show will live long life. Anything else is risky.
