In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:


  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.2/6 with an encore telecast; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.3/6 with an encore; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.2/6.
  •  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.8/4 with an encore; "Late Show," 0.5/3 with an encore; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.
  •  From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/4 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" (1.0/4 in metered-market households with an encore) trailed CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.1/4 with an encore).

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.

    It is remarkable, especially during the summer ratings doldrums. Makes me wonder how Dome would have performed debuting in the Fall. There is a ton of network science fiction/fantasy flameouts after really strong debuts so I really don’t know. I have my doubts Revolution can last beyond one more season, even on lowly NBC. The problem with these shows which appeal to science fiction geeks is that the inevitable soap opera elements eventually weigh them down…and there are only so many cows special effects can afford to slice in half:)

  • Flame

    Shame what Fox did with Goodwin Games. It was a pretty little solid show, along the same line of How I met your Mother: It’s about life and sticking together as a family.

    I said it and will say it again: The Fox Network is run by a bunch of morons and a board of monkeys that hold names of shows on paper and who stick said papers to a schedule would have more success than the current board of directors.

  • HalCapone

    Whether one likes or hates Under The Dome, Mistresses and Siberia, at least they are not “reality” programs. Please take note, networks; people will watch more than cheesy reality programming (in the summer, too).

  • JW

    So Siberia isn’t a reality show? I’ve heard some call it one and others (like above) say it’s a scripted drama about a reality show.

  • mindilee

    In MY opinion….and it is just an opinion….I think Under the Dome is good as a summer mini series but I just can’t see how it could be sustained as a regular series. To me, I think it would get old really fast. But I’ve not read the book either so don’t know where this is going.

    And I agree, you can’t compare this to H50 which is starting season four and also had a lot more competition from shows with some very loyal viewers.

  • Pepper

    I think it’ll get adjusted up to 2.9. Good job UTD!

  • HalCapone

    “Siberia” is no more reality show than ABC’s “The River”. They are scripted fare meant to appear as if they are non scripted. In the case of Siberia, it is about a fictious reality program that goes awry…and it’s on a real network that is awry:)

  • The End

    If Under the Dome can stay above 2.0 this season, it’ll be renewed.

    Think it should be moved away from the Summer though, it has potential to do well during the regular tv season.

  • Oliver

    2 times plus original airing, 3 times total

  • TheFrenchGuy

    @ Oliver

    Thanks :)
    And what would happen if, for example, CBS airs 4 times the same episode of The Big Bang Theory ?

  • Melanie P.

    Enjoying Mistresses!

  • rgxx

    Mistresses – canceled soon…and rightfully so = crap.

    UTD will probably keep slipping a bit every week until it stablizes to what ever it ends up to be…

    I enjoyed UTD except the obessed boyfriend – too soon for a secondary story like that- lets keep it focused on the Dome for a bit -it’s mystery and what it can and can’t do – too many villians appear to think this Dome is forever to stay- so their acting over-the-top control freaks…I mean really – everyone in the town would be in front of it – trying to find a way out – not just sit around and let the local radio station tell them what to do…other than that – it’s good…so far.

  • Nikki

    No finals yet?? And no cable yet either.? Im curious to see how Switched did. And to see if Under the Dome was adjusted up.

  • rgxx

    And UTD better NOT be renewed – let’s for once just have a Mini series that will have a planned ending! CBS can find another one season series / limited editions or mini-series…let’s not run this into the ground.

    CBS – stick to 12-13 episodes then END IT!

  • Dee

    @Kimberly and other UTD haters … Sit down!

  • Mindy

    I thought Under The Dome is a limited series? But if the ratings are really good, then perhaps CBS will force the producers and writers to come up with something to carry on and the show will be renewed.

  • Kelby

    I am hanging in there with Mistresses, but I just do not think it is very good. I am trying. Love you Alyssa.

  • Ashley

    I don’t see Mistresses being renewed. Not great numbers.

  • Taz

    “Goodwin Games” the best show going right now…too bad Fox does what Fox does too shows….I’m a Stephen King Fan, but Under The Dome should keep falling, great premise horrible execution I’m okay if the authorities just ignore the Town and lets them all perish, no one in that town worth saving.

  • SueP

    I don’t think UTD was ever conceived to be renewed. Like Mindy said, isn’t it a limited (mini) series? I have read the book, and tho the TV show isn’t particularly following it character-wise, it still has a similar plot, so I’m assuming, at the moment, it will come to a similar conclusion. I can’t see how it could be sustained if they conclude it as Stephen King wrote it.
