  • 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.

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.

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

    LOL! They’re doing it to themselves. Right now they are throwing in some random soapy things that don’t fit. This is not a network problem. The show is doing it to themselves. It doesn’t sound like they had enough material for 20 episodes, I don’t know how they will make it next year. There’s no one to root for or care for. Strange show. I will continue watching but I don’t know about next year.

  • Riii

    Not surprised about The Voice being down. They have managed to eliminate a lot of great contestants before the live shows and now are stuck with a mediocre group of singers. No one I really care about is left and Blake’s all country team is just meh. Too bad, it season started out so great.

  • Stop the Flop

    How does the rating for HIMYM’s season finale compare to last year’s finale?

  • Ryan T

    And the ABC schedule is out!

  • rob60990

    ABC released their schedule. OUAT spinoff on Thursdays!

  • Flame

    @Stop the Flop: From what I’ve read a few pages ago, down 0.3.

  • Mike

    Castle is the Monday 10 pm winner.
    I am a Revolution fan but it deserved to be moved.
    H50 is a flop for CBS , the most expensive pilots in years for these terrible numbers. I am not surprised CBS didn’t go with the Beverly Hills Cop reboot, they have learned a big lesson with the h50 reboot, these remakes never work, no matter how much money they put in them,

  • POIFanatic

    ABC schedule is out!!

    SHIELD is placed on Tuesday at 8. Castle continues on Mondays at 10. OUAT, Grey’s, Scandal, Modern Family all continue on the same days and time.
    OUAT in Wonderland occupies the dreaded Thursday 8pm slot.

  • Tommy M.

    I though the plan for the OUAT spinoff was to run it during the OUAT winter break?

  • Michael

    I can’t wait to see the Christina Aguilera fans jump for joy next season, when obviously the fall edition of programming is always higher than spring.

  • Max Vrany

    @Stop the Flop, down 3-tenths.

  • Diane

    We saw the Mother. YAY!!!!

  • Hubert R.

    @Stop the Flop – last year’s HIMYM finale was hour long, first half hour scored 3.6 (it didn’t have to compete with the Voice, it was AGT premiere already. AGT as far as I remember, it actually got better ratings than last night’s episode of The Voice).

  • A

    90210 did worse that Gossip Girl in their series finale!

  • Hardline_Pro

    I can’t believe Revolution was renewed. But I am happy it was.

  • MichaelChickless

    Well, at least H50 went up in the half hours.

  • RyanCanada

    when did HIMYM get so big? they never used to be but i dont know anyone who watches that trash, 2BG and M&M were great last night! also caught The Bates Motel

  • Justin121

    The Voice is just over stretched, over exposed.

    Sept-Novemer and March-May seasons or one long season.

    Can’t have it both ways.

  • Mark3

    90210 ended great! Im glad they had time to wrao it up. Great show! Great ending:):)

    Some Nielson family who loves ‘How I Met Your Mother’ came home again.
