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.

    I can’t believe how steady UTD actually is!!!

  • rob60990

    @Andy, wrong. This was part one of a hyped finale.

  • SG

    Mistresses is my 2nd favorite show this summer after BB15. Hoping for season 2! It seems to build it’s audience every week.

  • Hal Capone

    Long live scripted summer programming! DIE Reality programming, DIE!

  • david

    UTD was really good. It seems to be steady in the high 2’s.

  • betty

    Mistresses is the only worth watching show this summer.it is as good as Desperate Housewives.the twists are amazing.just excellent.season 2 please!!

  • Statix

    @ Kyle

    Siberia is about a bunch of reality contestants who arrive in Siberia to record a reality tv show. It works like any real reality tv show, only this time it’s scripted and unexplainable stuff starts happening. They just keep shooting the tv show, but more and more weird things are happening. The contestants are divided; some think it’s all part of the reality tv show, while others think the opposite.

    I’m getting a very Lost-like vibe when I watch the tv show. I love it. I think a lot of people think that the creators of the tv show are trying to fool the audience, trying to make them believe it’s all in fact real. But it’s not trying to do that at all. I recommend watching it.

  • gerry

    happy for UTD and mistresses. happy that the latter is getting a renewal (i already know the former is.)

    i’m one of the .2 that is watching breaking pointe. i love it. and dammit i wish it were doing better. but it must cost little to nothing to make, so hopefully it will stick around..? i mean, it is summer/cw.

  • TV Viewer

    Good for Under the Dome. Holding steady, even though there’s no chance of them getting out of Chester’s Mill when season one ends.

  • rgxx

    Correction: My predictions of UTD were ON TARGET – I said 2.7 – it was a 2.7!!!!!!!

  • rgxx

    QUESTION: How does CBS keep claiming in their promos that 40 million people are watching UTD when clearly it’s 11-12 million – even with DVR watching – they are NOT reaching 40 million…

    Or are they thinking 4 people per houshold x 11 = roughly 40 million?! Can they claim that?????

    Please someone explain.

  • taylor

    I love mistresses. But it really doesn’t gain much from the Bach . But at least its not lead independent so I’ll do fine airing its last 4 episodes without the Bach .

  • Dan S

    Mistresses has become my 1 truly guilty pleasure. I’ve got a good feeling it’ll be back next summer but why a 3 week break ? I’m not surprised UTD dipped but at least it has a renewal for next summer.

  • taylor

    @rgxx yeah I’m with you on that its unreasonable I remember this fall on ABC with the season premieres of once upon a time ,revenge ,666 park avenue. The following week ABC claiming in a promo that 38 million people watched all new Sundays last week ” but that was all 3 shows put together so just one show. Watched by 40 million is really unreasonable.

  • Maslany


    I think they are adding in the Amazon Instant Video viewers. It’s the most watched show EVER on Amazon Instant Video.

  • taylor

    @ Dan s ,since I’ll be closer to fall ABC hopes more people catch up on the show and attract new viewers.

  • Survivor Fan


    It would not be unreasonable to think that, between all means of watching, 40 million people have seen at least part of an episode. Or, it could be the added viewership of each episode (but then, they would have claimed ~50 million).

  • Nikki

    A small dip for UTD.. but still steady. Im really enjoying this show.. and im so happy to see Britt out of the cell they locked her in for most of the season. I guess there wasnt much of a dip like people said yesterday when they renewed it for season 2. And it will probably adjust up.. this show is kicking major ass.

  • Theisssuesarenow

    I don’t see any dip?!

  • Jacobo

    They probably include repeats, online, and DVR figures
