NBC was number one with adults 18-49, while  ABC won with total viewers.

On NBC, The Voice notched a 3.4 down 11 percent from last week's 3.8 adults 18-49 rating. It was the lowest-rated performance show this season and Monday low for the series. Revolution earned a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating, even with last week.

On CBS, the series finale of Rules of Engagement garnered a 1.8 down 14 percent from a 2.1 on May 6, when it followed a new How I Met Your Mother. The season finale of Hawaii Five-0 earned a 2.0 up 11 percent from last week's 1.8 adults 18-49 rating but down 26 percent from a 2.7 for last year’s season finale on May 14, 2013.

On ABC, the performance finale of Dancing with the Stars scored a 2.5 up 25 percent from last week's series low-tying 2.0 adults 18-49 rating but down 14 percent from a 2.9 for last spring’s performance finale on May 21, 2012 and down 7 percent from a 2.7 for the fall’s performance finale on November 26, 2012.

Definitions:

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.

    Well, I didn’t think “H5O” would beat “Revolution.” Interesting.

  • Dean

    Ouch for The Goodwin Games.

  • Babar Suhail

    Poor Goodwin Games with just a 0.7. I am appalled at the way FOX has treated this show.

  • Grey

    I’m first to comment? How did that happen? :D

  • max

    OMG, The Voice… ;(

  • Ryne

    I thought Rules series finale would have been a little higher. It wrapped everything up very nicely. Well Done

  • RyanCanada

    I Really liked The Goodwin Games, dont really understand why they premiered it the way they did. he has alot of promise.

  • John K.

    Not bad for Motive! Let’s see if it can maintain that number throughout the summer.

  • Grey

    Wasn’t “Revolution” a season finale as well? That’s not noted in the table.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Flopotive

  • It’s Opposite Day

    Not bad for Goodwin Games!

  • DW

    good way to end rules. nice sendoff.

  • Vcoolwater

    Good for Hawaii Five-O. I am not surprised at the ratings increase. CBS heavily advertised the season finale with whole “Four becomes Three”. Though it has to sting a little bit that a repeat of Mike and Molly did better than it.

  • senor chang

    that’s actually kinda impressive from Hawaii 5-0. Going out on a high note.

    soggy premieres for both The Goodwin Games and Motive, not that I’m surprised at either.

    Revolution has essentially bottomed out at this point: Smash was falling along with The Voice this time last year, but that’s not happening right now. if it can hold at around a 1.6-1.7 (entirely realistic) on Wednesdays at 8, it’ll be fine. if it can hold where it’s at now, even better.

  • Fumbuck

    The Voice and Revolution sink once again!

  • BigBrotherFan

    Flopwin Games

    @Grey
    Revolution’s season finale is on 3rd June.

  • senor chang

    @Grey

  • Antonio

    @Grey

    The season finale of Revolution isn’t until June 3rd.

  • Anna

    Got bored with Goodwin Games halfway trough.
