  • 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," 0.5/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.3/4 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" (1.4/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.1/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.4/3).

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.

    Still up on the Fall cycle I would guess. Not sure about the last Spring cycle which had the Super Bowl boost.

    Looking at only the Monday airings, and excluding the episode that aired the night after the Super Bowl, here are the ratings for The Voice…

    W/S 2012 – 4.7

    Fall 2012 – 4.4

    Spr 2012 – 4.6

    NCIS and NCIS: LA were superb!

    Given how much DWTS has ripped off from SYTYCD in recent years, it’s fitting that they both crash and burn at the same time. Loathsome Nigel Lythgoe made me drop SYTYCD and a million things made me drop DWTS. If anyone had really cared about saving these shows, they would be doing better. DWTS thinks having Derek Hough take off his shirt is all they need to do for ratings.

    Lately I like Mindy’s show more than New Girl, but I LOL’d at the badger falling through the roof after Nick and Jess just now (streaming the episode on hulu). I might like both shows equally, but Mindy’s ensemble is funnier IMO. Especially Dr. Danny and Morgan.

    Both NCIS’ were enjoyable, though I definitely saw my share of dislikes to how LA ended. I credit the writers for doing that. 1, it was unexpected and 2, that’s why LA is one of the best shows around, is because of stuff like that. Yes, you’re hurting your main character, and in real life, good people have bad things happened to them, too.

    I laugh at everyone who says “I’m not watching anymore”. Go ahead, just don’t jump back on the bandwagon again later.

    Body of Proof should be picked up by a cable network. Its really good, and at first I hated the new look (the premiere 2-parter was bad) but the season improved as it went on. Season 4 will be brilliant if picked up by someone, and it deserves it. The show is stable in the ratings and in viewership, it will do good on cable.

    all this hate for the most watched show on tv

    I can’t wait to see the ratings tank next season with crass Xtina returning. Tons of people like myself will be making a mass exodus away from the show b/c of her. She totally ruins the show. Can’t wait to see the ratings next season.
