Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Raiders/Broncos) was simulcast on the CW affiliate in Oakland. As a result, the CW numbers may be inflated and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.
NBC was number one in Adults 18-49 and with total viewers
On NBC, the Voice season 5 premiere earned a 4.9 adults 18-49 rating, up from last fall’s 4.2 and last spring’s 4.8 adults 18-49 rating, and the highest Voice premiere premiere since the post-Super Bowl start of the second season on Feb. 5, 2012. The Blacklist premiered to a 3.8 rating, down from the 4.1 that Revolution earned behind The Voice’s fall season last year. Your predictions were too pessimistic for both shows.
On CBS, the one-hour season premiere of How I Met Your Mother matched last year’s 3.6 adults 18-49 premiere rating. The season premiere of 2 Broke Girls earned a 2.8, down sharply from the 3.7 last year’s season premiere earned. The series premiere of Mom earned a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating. The series premiere of Hostages earned a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, even with last year’s premiere of Hawaii Five-0 in the time period.
On FOX, Bones scored a 1.9, down four tenths from last week’s 2.3 adults 18-49 premiere rating. Sleepy Hollow garnered a 3.1, down four tenths from last week’s 3.5 adults 18-49 premiere rating.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 1.0/5; “Late Show,” 0.7/3 with an encore; and “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” 0.7/4.

From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (1.5/5 in metered-market households with an encore) beat CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” (1.2/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, “Late Night” (0.6/5 in 18-49 with an encore) topped “Late Late Show” (0.4/3).

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.
