  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.1/4 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 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 with an encore) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (0.9/3 with an encore).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49 with an encore) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2 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.

    Bad night all round. POI repeats badly.

  • ChiChi

    Keep dropping Flop Brother, the most disgusting reality show on TV!

  • Liam

    I highly doubt that Americas Next Top Model got 9 million viewers, on a repeat, during the summer with a 0.2 in the demo???

  • Psac

    SYTYCD was a bit wonky with the changed format, but overall good episode. Great show, people don’t know what they’re missing.

  • Dennis

    Why is ABC airing repeats of a cancelled show? Give a show that needs it some airtime!

  • r0ckmypants

    SYTYCD is almost unwatchable this season. Not only do the dancers and choreographers not compare to those of earlier seasons, but the format makes no sense… you’re going to eliminate someone at the beginning of the show and then expected them to dance with their partners later? Clearly the fact that they have been kicked off will have some effect on their performance, and subsequently their partner’s performance as well. So I’m glad it’s falling, if only to wake Nigel Lythgoe up.

  • Kissan

    Bad night all around. Extreme Weight Loss and SYTYCD keep on dropping. AGT dropped big yesterday as well. Don’t know what’s happening to BB lately but that’s also not doing good. I still don’t know why they’re repeating BOP. And ANTM DID NOT have 9.32 million viewers yesterday.

  • MichaelChickless

    Oh Brother, what an awful night of TV.

  • Kissan

    Gosh the broadcast ratings are SO boring in the summer. Can’t wait for the fall and can’t wait for the cable ratings today to see what PLL and Twisted got.

  • Lisbeth Slander

    ^ How utterly original of you.

  • luka

    America’s got FLOP

  • Petar

    By the way today Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman will chat with fans. You can look for more info on facebook page of the show. Thanks.

  • omabin

    I don’t understand the strategy of repeating BoP

  • RJ

    Considering Big Brother is in its 12th (or more) season, its not a flop. Dumb people all around.

  • sam

    @ flop detector

    You are not funny. At all

  • Petar

    @John A

    All cbs shows repeat bad this summer. Even TBBT is down a lot. 10 pm even worse. May be end of that smart until now policy is closer than we think?

    mini-series and serialized 10-13 ep shows may start work better for the summer with some not many repeats for filter.

  • Petar


    Well strategy is that abc make only serialized shows. They don’t repeat well and need to air some filter so they don’t have a lot of options. Its this or castle.

  • SG

    Big Brother has been the number 1 or number 2 show in it’s slot since it’s premiere last Wednesday (like it has been for the previous 14 seasons). You haters might not like the show, but it’s still a valuable summer show for CBS.

  • João

    Why not Siberia at 8:00pm stand of Off their rockers is boring and the ratings sucks

  • PurpleDrazi

    Yikes! What a horrible night. Series lows and season lows every which way you look.

    I’m not really surprised though. I wasn’t compelled to watch anything last night.
