In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:

  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4 with an encore; "Late Show," 0.4/2 with an encore; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.6/3.
  • 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.

    In the end all shows and reality are down this summer. I can bet that all shows will be even more down next fall.

  • Samunto

    Lows allover. This is as depressing as in-season when everything was dropping.
    I imagine X Factor will be doing similar numbers as SYTYCD come fall.

  • s0303

    @flop dector…wow you are really smart..how do you come up with all those names? sure genius! :)

  • K

    BB is not doing well, partly due to not really having anyone to root for. A good example is Elissa. Rachel did have her moments,unfortunately it has not transferred to her sister. As for the majority of the guys, many think they’re all that, when they clearly aren’t. Very disappointed so far. Even the judge, Melissa, from American Baking Competition, sounded bored.

  • Kissan

    Does anybody know when ABC are gonna announce their premiere dates? It’s taking WAY too long.

    All cbs shows repeat bad this summer

    Even CSI?

  • HitDetector

    America’s Got Hits!

    What? Someone needs to be positive :P

  • rob60990

    The ratings will be depressed this week with 4th of July holiday.

    @Kissan, last year they waited until their summer TCA which i believe is the end of this month. Paul Lee continues to show his incompetence.

    some people really need to, perhaps, open up a dictionary and learn what flop means. a show that’s been on for multiple seasons is not a flop, no matter how horrible it is.

    some people on this page are SO ANNOYING.

  • Petar


    I can see this summer CBS drama repeats around 1.0 and comedy repeats around 1.2 and TBBT repeat around 2.0. But even TBBT reruns are way down. Last summer was 2.5+. Yesterday(i guess most people not even know that will be there) was 1.6 i think. The same with PoI most people still don’t know reruns on tuesday as well on thursday. By the way from now on this will be POI new slot for summer reruns till the end of the summer NOT thursday at 9. CBS chamge that yesterday too. Think smart move people will need time to change their habits. Its new fall regulary slot for the show so better start from now.

    ENOUGH WITH THE FLOPS. It’s not funny and it never was. We get it every show is FLOP this year.

    Anyways, I hope AGT is adjusted up cause the ratings are horrible this year. I think they should have switched Siberia with leadin on tuesdays, and Camp on Monday, with Chicago Fire repeats on Wednesday or deadline or something.

  • Jacobo


    ABC is the last to announce everything. Premiere dates, cancellations.

  • Petar


    I hear in US will has 4-day holiday so expect very bad week. In europe further the summer more down. August is the worst month of the year for european tv channels. (in europe most people take vacation in that month)
    But hey after that new season will began and we will talk again. (no people now)

  • BigBrotherFan


    Get that old hag trying to act sexy off my TV screen. I want to vomit everytime I see Dana BATTLE AXE Deleny trying to act hip and sexy on BOP..No wonder people ran away from that show in masses she’s old and tired looking it’s comical!

    I hate YOU! how boring all your are! all your shows star 80-year olds..YOU MUST BE OVER THE MOON about Big Brother it’s one of the FEW shows you have that has young sexy people and it shows JUST LOOK AT THE 18-49 numbers for YOUR old people shows with ugly old washed up leads and look at BB rising @9pm and than POI flopping.

    PS ABC:
    Nobody cares about fat ugly old people losing weight ABC please put on repeats of NASHVILLE instead! AMAZING show and Connie Britton looks amazing for her age!

  • Petar


    That is way abc is 4th place network. beaten by fox cbs and nbc. But hey they still beat UNI and CW……yet.

    ps Only shield can save them?! But even this won’t be enough.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Betty White was a clip show of the best moments. Basically a repeat.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Further more CBS:

    You’re best old people act show is THE GOOD WIFE Julianna Margulius looks amazing for 50-something and doesn’t act old and tire like the rest of your shows/drama leads! Josh Charles looks great for his 40’s I could do without Diane because she old and funny looking but damn is Christine a mightly fine actress!

    Big Brother dominates!

  • BigBrotherFan


    Nobody wants to see Betty White she’s old ugly and not funny! cancel her butt!

    Big Brother is getting a lot of negative press this year…

  • BigBrotherFan
