In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.3/6; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.6/7; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.9/5.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.7/3; "Late Show," 0.7/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.

From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.1/3 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.

From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.2/4 in metered-market households) tied 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.

    UNDER THE DOME is a Monster :D

  • Mathew

    Where is Sunday cable ratings

  • Kyle

    Can someone explain what the hell is Siberia? I watched a little bit and it looks reality but it also looks scripted

  • Dennis


    3.3, 2.9, 2.7, 2.7, 2.8, 2.7


  • Hubert R.

    wow Bachelorette, good for ABC :) amazing as always for UTD.

  • Nick

    @ Kyle
    It’s a scripted show about reality show contestants who get trapped or something & the reality show goes terribly wrong

  • Jared

    Hart of Dixie repeat averaging almost a million viewers is pretty impressive. So happy the CW decided to pair up HoD and BatB in the Fall. Two of my favorite series on the network.
    Breaking Pointe should have never been renewed.

  • Simon

    Under the Dome, steady! Hope this bodes well for S2 next year!

  • sally

    the only network show on Monday night I watch is under the dome,i cant stand comedies or realty tv. im glad I get a &e and TNT

  • Matthew

    Does mistresses have chance of renewal? I hope so

  • Unicorn

    Impressive for UTD. I was expecting much lower considering how many people said they won’t continue watching after renewal.

  • Survivor Fan

    @ Kyle
    It is a scripted drama about a reality TV show. It really is a great parody of reality TV at times.

    @ Matthew
    I would give it a 40% chance of renewal.

  • hanp

    I think UTD will almost certain to adjust to 2.8
    It’s half hour is 2.8/2.7 (per Belman).

  • Jared

    ABC has extended the contracts for the cast of Mistresses which seems like a pretty good sign for now. Hopefully the network gives the show a second chance next Summer.

  • Ram510

    Happy Mistresses is up! But of course ABC is stupid and making us wait 3 weeks for a new episode, what a way to kill momentum. Whats the point in it being a summer series if your still going to have long breaks. Hope it comes back strong with at least a 1.5

  • Masnadetizitori

    Mistresses is great!Season 2 is near!

  • Alex367

    Breaking point needs to et cancelled those atings are awful

  • Andy

    Great for the bachelorette ! It does better than DWTS!

  • MichaelChickless

    Wow, UTD dipped all the way down to a 2.7? It’ll probably adjust up. It’s a summer beast.

  • r0ckmypants

    @hanp – That’s not how adjustments work.
