In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:
  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.5/6; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.7/7.
  • 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," 0.6/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET Wednesday night, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.6/5 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" (1.2/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 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.

    lol Pathetic for the GRIMMM FINALE…
    COuld not even rise even with the voice as a lead in… AND it will most likely adjust down

    ROFL

  • fourat sakka

    bad for grimm

  • BigBrotherFan

    HA! The Bachelor tanked! GOOD!
    The Voice is going down (LIKE I PREDICTED!) without Xtina! Good thing she’s back next year and so am I!
    Good for Grimm, I guess..pretty boring night all around

  • Dennis

    PATHETIC FOR THE VOICE :D

    KEEP ON FALLING

  • fourat sakka

    the voice needs to get back to 8pm slot !!! stupide move from nbc !!!!

  • PurpleDrazi

    That’s right Grimm…steady as she goes.

  • senor chang

    That’s the closest DWTS and The Voice have been with each other all season. Granted, one was airing its finale and the other aired after a one hour presentation on a tornado, but it’s still worth noting.

    Solid for Grimm.

  • Michael

    How’s a 3.1 for a results show bad in the spring? You are are overacting lol! Especially, since it will adjust up later on this evening.

  • senor chang

    And for those calling the Voice a flop…name one other show that hit a 3.0 last night. The show’s falling, but it has a long way to go before it even comes close to being a flop.

  • Riii

    The Voice got boring really fast – they eliminated all the interesting contestants before the top 12. I don’t even watch it anymore and it’s obvious why the ratings are down.

  • Jordan

    I find it absolutely stupid on ABC’s part not to air the season finale of Body of Proof last night and take advantage of a possible ‘last hurrah’ ratings increase from DWTS (although we know it won’t save it from cancellation). They could have easily aired the ridiculous Bachelor special next week at 8pm.

  • BigBrotherFan

    To the people acting suggesting GRIMM did bad-

    LET ME POINT YOU TO LAST THURSDAY WHEN HANNIBAL LOST ALMOST AROUND 70% OF THE OFFICES LEAD-IN!!!!!!!!!

    Give me a break!

    NOW THATS A TRUE FLOP!

  • Stan

    It’s every season the same with The Voice. A beast with the blind auditions and the following stages of the competition the ratings go down. Nothing new here, and also not a result of a season without Christina.

  • BigBrotherFan

    NBC clearly made the right decision giving GRIMM the post VOICE slot over HANNIBAL for the sweeps! an actually smart move for once

  • RyanCanada

    whoa at the voice, is this a series low? was a great episode of Grimm btw.

  • Edward

    The competing “flop” trolls are just sad.

  • Dennis

    @BigBrotherFan

    GRIMM SEASON ! FINALE GOT A 1.6 WITHOUT A LEAD IN…

    WITH THE VOICE AS A LEAD IN IT COULD ONLY MANAGE A 1.7 AND WILL ADJUST DOWN TO A 1.6 … THAT IS PATHETIC !!! :D

  • senor chang

    Sometimes, I really think this site should be renamed FlopByTheNumbers.

  • Dennis

    @BigBrotherFan

    GRIMM SEASON 1 FINALE GOT A 1.6 WITHOUT A LEAD IN…

    WITH THE VOICE AS A LEAD IN IT COULD ONLY MANAGE A 1.7 AND WILL ADJUST DOWN TO A 1.6 … THAT IS PATHETIC !!!

  • Michael

    Stan,

    Nope Xtina has nothing to do with it. Fall ratings are ALWAYS higher than Spring. That’s nothing new!
