In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:
  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.4/6; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.2/6; 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," 0.6/3.
 
  • 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).
 
  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/3 in metered-market households and a 0.3/3 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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Wonder how IDOL will fare against VOICE tonight?
    VOICE will almost certainly win, but both shows will get hurt. Similar to last fall when VOICE aired against X FACOTR.
    But NBC might be doing some long term damage to the VOICE. Its on too much during the week. I get a headache just thinking about listening to all these singers on a nightly basis.

    @ron,

    Let me guess: Body of Proof fan?

  • BigBrotherFan

    @TVBYTHENUMBERS

    Put up a NASHVILLE vs. CHICAGO FIRE poll up tonight and please put a pic of Hayden on the article it will make your site look hotter!

  • Petar Ivanov

    @Every economic poll that has been taken says the money is in the hands of the 25-59 group, certainly not the immature 18-24 group that are still looking for employment.

    I guess advertisers target younger group like easy to manipulate.

    Doesn’t matter!

    In the TV business, the money is in the hands of the advertisers, and they are interested in the Adults 18-49 demographic and its subsets (e.g. Adults 18-34 and Men 18-34).

    Until that changes, comments like “cling to your feeble 18-49 ratings cause you have nothing else” do nothing but make you look ignorant.

    Maybe you should avoid lecturing people on subjects that you are clueless about?

    Um..Because the VOICE WAS WAY DOWN and it was watched more last night! Maybe that’s why?

  • Nick

    I hate it when people say “yay” when a show’s ratings go down. It’s so pathetic. If you don’t like a show, that doesn’t mean you have to post your happiness about it’s ratings going down.

  • Mr Mumble

    @rob60990

    If Mindy is getting an early renewal for below par ratings on Fox then the expectation for what ratings are required for renewal on other networks may also be lower than many of us believe. Mindy got renewed when it was getting 1.5s and is now down to 1.3s. Given ABC’s and NBC’s lower ratings could more comedies, that average 1.2-1.3, get renewed than many here think?

    @Wright
    “It’s funny how people talk crap about Revolution and praise Grimm when they both air after the Voice to practically the same rating.”

    That’s because a 1.9-2.0 is a significant DECREASE from where Revolution use to be but that same rating is an INCREASE from what Grimm normally gets.

    The rating number may be the same but the two shows arrived at that number from totally opposit directions. One is going up, the other is going down.

  • ron

    @Holly – My comment pertains to the absurity that is the coveted 18-49 group that does not have the buying poer that everyone gives it credit for. What age group spends the most money, certainly not the 18-24 group. It is just like so many false things that are believed by the majority who willingly buy into what is considered a popular notion, even though it is without merit.

  • Jazz

    I wonder what would happen if they switched Grimm and Revolution. I don’t want it to happen because I am tried of chasing Grimm allover the week but I do wonder what the ratings might look like. Would Revolution go down on Tuesday? Would Grimm go up on Monday? I also wonder if Grimm would work at 9 followed by Revolution at 10. I like Grimm at 9. Scratch that, NCIS is on Tues at 9.

  • zth

    The Voice will probably adjust up two tenths as usually so it will be down only one tenth from last week.

    It’s pretty funny that Blake Shelton seemed to have more than coffee in his ‘latte’ on both Monday and Tuesday, tho. (yes, he seemed a bit drunk).

    Any prediction for American Idol versus The Voice tonight?

  • ron

    @Ultima Which Board of Directors do you have a seat at? Do you really believe advertisers for car companies are targeting the low income 18-24 group? It is you who needs to read something more substantial than the cartoon section.

  • Dan

    Wow at New Girl building on Hell’s Kitchen, not so great Mindy dropping.

  • Ultima

    @Fred
    But NBC might be doing some long term damage to the VOICE. Its on too much during the week.

    How does airing a few extra hours of the show during sweeps cause long term damage? FOX did the same thing with American Idol basically every year and it had monster ratings for an entire decade.

    Shows decline. There’s nothing that can stop that. Might as well get the most out of it while it’s hot.

    Body of proof is very steady. I expect it will be renewed and to be honest no other show they have had at 10 on Tuesday ever does any better.

    “My comment pertains to the absurity that is the coveted 18-49 group that does not have the buying poer that everyone gives it credit for.”

    Two things you aren’t thinking about here:

    1. The 18-49 group will eventually BE in the 25-59 age group. So, catch them now while they are young and develope their brand loyalty for when they do have all that money to spend.

    2. The 18-49 group is the hardest to reach. Yes, older people have more money but they also watch more TV (well, live anyway) It is easy to reach them so why spend a lot of money to do so? 18-49 live viewership is very scarse. Therefor advertisers are willing to pay more money to reach them.

    Seems the Battle rounds & chair spinning rounds are the hit programs for the Voice…there is too many contestants – it gets mellow until the final few weeks.

  • ron

    @Dan Did you really use the word wow in relation to New Girl; the show that can’t break the 4 million mark in viewers?
