  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 Wednesday results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.6/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.6/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.2/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 in 18-49 in the 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.

    Just saw the half hours for 90210, 0.3, 0.2, 0.2 and 0.2. A 0.2 for the final episode, down from the 0.3 last week. I could have seen the show hitting 0.1 of not 0.0s next year had the series gotten a sixth season. Luckly it ended when it did.

  • Seth

    Revolution prediction next fall – 1.5 probably will be it’s average

  • halloween

    hard to believe the premiere of 90210 got 5 million viewers….and series finale got 600k :)

  • rob60990

    90210 only got a .3 in the first half hour. The other 3 half hours got a .2. Those numbers must be really rounded to average a .3.

  • Ateofi

    Great to see Castle finale go up due to the finale. H50 hopefully will adjust up. Next season it will probably be moved to Friday, because Csi NY was cancelled. I wonder which drama will take its slot: Intelligence or Hostages? Revolution is down from last week and will probably adjust down as always. TBBT rerun did better than ROE but still pretty week ratings.

  • Ashley

    The Voice was meh last night. I think it got kinda boring early on and never really got too much better so people may have tuned out a bit.

  • John P

    I think DWTS needs new producers and judges. They need to do something about these poor demos.

  • Liam

    I was expecting at least for the show to break the 1 million viewer mark for the finale and at least a 0.5 in the demo. I was aiming to high. But overall I was happy with the finale.

  • HalCapone

    Wow, Mother almost tied Voice. Revolution limping to the finish line.

  • gigi

    As I always get confused with that stuff, when will we see the L+7D ratings for this Monday night? :p I’m sure HIMYM will go insane, and hope so!

  • Brandy

    2BGs is up I think, probably boosted by BBT.I hope CBS pairs them together next year.Dissapointed 90210 didn’t get a bump for it being the series finale.

  • Michael

    Although down, glad to see The Voice still on top. It will adjust in the finals, as usual.

    Confirmed that Christina and Cee lo are returning next season. It should be interesting to see comparisons next season.

  • Dillan


    Really? The episode felt very rushed.. and they could have done a “5 years later..” or something.

  • POIFanatic

    Go Castle! You better stay steady Revolution.
    I haven’t watched HIMYM since season 5, but the mother looked real and I applaud them for that. Might even start watching it before the series ends.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Christina has signed back on for the fall edition of THE VOICE

    so I’ll start watching again..she can bring in more fans to help it rise a bit

    H50 is a real loser people b#### about THE GOOD WIFE yet H50 is only doing a bit better, if that, on a better night. Plus, it has nowhere near the same critical praise as the GOOD WIFE..if anything it should go to Fridays to help Blue Bloods.

    Revolution is really going to sink on it’s own. I think it’s going to do Whitney Season Two numbers and will last maybe 13 episodes into the season before being shipped to Fridays.

    Can you BODY OF PROOF people stick to your fanpage? Honestly. Nobody cares! You’re show was canceled. Sorry. It happens! Move on. You people consistently compare your lame old people show to THE YOUNG, HOT AND TRENDY NASHVILLE so PLEASE that old fart skewing show to be renewed IF IT WAS GETTING NASHVILLES 18-49 demo on a regular basis. It wasn’t. Nobody wants to see some 90-year-old lady solve crimes MURDER SHE WROTE already did it!

  • Mon

    2 Broke Girls did well. I hope it adjusts up to 3.0. Its season average is about 3.3 – not bad for a sophomore show rushed to a front runner timeslot.

    HIMYM did excellent indeed. It’s going to be huge nexr season so CBS better use it to help a promising new show.

    I’ll be shocked if Hawaii Five-0 doesn’t move out of that time slot. Castle will without a doubt stay there.

  • mando

    Revolution will do well on Wed. That’s for sure.

  • gg

    About HIMYM – anybody heard that for its last entire season – it will be ala “24”? I find that intriguing if true.

  • Ryan T

    Love that HIMYM beat THE VOICE in its half hour and is yet again Monday’s highest scripted show.

    Again, the show is sitting pretty. Since it’s their last season, ratings won’t matter to them next year. Granted CBS certainly wants them to continue being a good anchor so they can possibly use it to launch a new show (how about a Buffy hour pairing it with SMG’s new comedy?).

  • MichaelChickless

    Hmm, Revolution down to Grimm levels (so to speak).

    It would probably hit a 2.5 if they killed off the Charlie character. ;-) :-)
