In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 1.7/5 with an encore telecast; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.3/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.8/5 with an encore.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.5/3 with an encore; "Late Show," 0.5/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/3 with an encore.

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" (0.9/3 in metered-market households with an encore) trailed CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.1/4 with an encore).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.4/3 in 18-49 with an encore) topped "Late Late Show" (0.2/1 with an encore).

At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.5/2 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/3 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.



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.

  • Kissan

    Good for Mistresses holding that 1.0.

  • Colin

    UTD is not flat, its rising, because anyone knows it will be adjusted up as always.

  • DenverDean

    ABC is trying to KILL Mistresses by pre-empting for Bachelor Rose and Country Music. Ah, I can wait for ABC excuse BINGO this fall. I’m sure they’ll be a new spin on it even with the new scheduling blocks.

  • JR35

    Not bad- I predicted it would be 2.4-2.5 for UTD. And based on past weeks, it well my adjust up.

  • RJ

    Under the Dome typically adjusts up, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens later today.

  • John A

    Good for UTD. Mistresses could have done worse. I can’t see it being renewed though.

  • John A

    Mike and Molly repeat was down 2 tenths from last week so even more impressive for UTD to grow 1.4 from its lead in and maybe to 2.5 demo later.

  • Scott R

    Under the Dome is higher than last week already

  • Hardline_Pro

    What are the chances of Siberia being renewed? At least it is steady.

  • jean

    OUCH for Under the Dome, the show is going downhill, is a dead show

  • EatMorePez


    A dead show that’s been renewed for next summer.

  • Juan

    Not bad for mistresses, down only two tenths with its lead-in much much weaker. I would love it if it adjusts up

  • I Love TV!

    @Hardline_Pro I guess it’s 0

  • Mon

    Almost everything was down even Big Brother last Sunday by 0.4. Under the Dome did well.

    (about the episode) Natalie Zea was great. Her character Max made Big Jim so tiny. Big Jim had some hilarious facial expressions last night from being on top to being Max’s pet.

  • Billy

    Have no fear UTD fans. CBS is bringing in The Big Bang Theory for its lead in on its season finale on Monday, September 9.

  • xwiseguyx

    I gave up on Get Out Alive after last week when the West Hollywood boys were kicked out because he didn’t like their character…

  • Liam

    Under the Dome flat verses last week. Better than dropping. Would have loved a small uptake in the ratings, but I will settle for this.

  • Anthony

    @Hardline_Pro A while back I read that Siberia is an “indie” show. This was all funded by the production crew. They can definitely make a second season even if NBC decides not to renew it. We’ll just have to figure out another way to watch it.

  • s0303

    repeat of hart of dixie did better than breaking pointe…not good.

  • Kissan

    I like how HOD repeat can get 880,000 viewers against the season finale of SAB and the season premiere of Basketball Wives on cable. I wonder how it’ll do in the fall against DTWS and The Voice.
