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.

In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:
  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.9/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.6/7; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.1/6.
  • 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," 0.7/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/5 in metered-market households and a 0.5/3 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.3/5 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" (0.4/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).

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.

    I feel bad for Becky Newton she can’t catch a break post Betty

    Love Bites was great got canceled
    No way this show lasts!

    It’s a shame because she really is hot and funny!

  • Anon

    Looks like it was a sitty night for the CW.


    The voice is still doing solid numbers for NBC and ur will probably adjust up close to 11 million those are still solid numbers for the show. Hawaii 50 did well for its finale wondering how it will fare in its new Friday timeslot

  • ateofi

    Glad to see H50 go up in the finale, I guess Castle fans helped a little :)
    Revoluion has below 6 million viewers and has stabilized around 1.9 demo. That’s disappoiting for a show that was supposed to turn back NBC’s ratings. New ABC show premiered decently all things considered.
    Generally, the ratings are bad, The voice hit season low, ROE final had only 1.8 demo.

  • Baqinardo

    I guess Shakira n Usher’s charm already faded away?
    That’s lower than any perf ep on Fall, right?

  • rob60990

    Nice rise for DWTS. The Voice continues to drop. :)

    Hawaii 5-0 couldnt hold its repeat lead-in. Pathetic.

  • Mon

    Mike & Molly repeat looks too high?

  • Dennis




  • Babar Suhail

    I think Mike & Molly got a 2.2 because many people weren’t aware of its preemption.

  • Marge

    Let’s see. No Castle, H50 rises. What does that tell ya? I don’t hold much stock in that minuscule rise.

  • Samunto

    Just as i had expected. GG DOA though it’ll continue to air coz it’s summer anyway.

    The Voice needs to stop dropping. ABC must be happy with DWTS. Not bad given how low it had fallen this season. Then again, the only competish was NBC.

    I hope for NBC’s sake that it’s scripted fare takes off really well so that they’ll consider airing The Voice just once a year.

  • W

    Wow, the repeat of The Big Bang Theory and Mike and Molly did better than series finale of The Rules of Engagement! H50’s season finale was superb and so intense, full of surprises!

  • bjssp

    Why isn’t NBC doing a multi-day run of the entire season of Revolution? I get that they have to schedule around TV and, apparently, tonight’s tornado special, but it’s not as if it would take that long. The show’s finale is on June 3, so they could still do this if they wanted…right?

  • Jo

    Haven’t watched Motive yet but watched The Goodwin Games once never again, horrible.

  • Cand.B.

    The only good comedy of the year…and Fox has decided to kill it. I think Fox really gives its best when it comes to kill good shows

  • Bryan

    I chose not to watch Motive because of the annoying adverts they had on this site. The nerve of abc. The show is doing well in Canada, keep it in Canada.

  • forg

    Yikes under 2.0 for ROE’s series finale. Anyway, 100 episodes for a 7 season run with various timeslots is a terrific run for this show

  • Greg

    Sad about The Goodwin Games. The pilot is not very good, but the show had potential to become something great.

  • Dan S

    I watched the Goodwin Games & was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It’s a travesty that Fox had no faith in this show to schedule it in the regular season. I knew it would tank in the ratings but it debuted lower than I thought it would.
    At least Revolution & H50 go to new nights in the fall & won’t likely face off against each other again. If RVN doesn’t drop further on Wed it should be ok whose biggest competition will be Survivor.

  • Kumar

    Mindy project repeats well! Can’t wait for season next.
