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.

On ABC,  Dancing with the Stars fell to a 2.3 from last week's  3.1 adults 18-49 rating . The season premiere of Castle earned a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating, up slightly from last year's 2.1 premiere rating.

In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.9/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.6/7 with an encore; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.3/6.

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 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.5/5 in metered-market households and a 0.4/3 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.

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).

At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.9/4 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.4/4 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.

    Yay yay yay yay yay new season yay

  • Tommy

    I’m a little shocked that “Hostages” premiered to a 1.8 and “The Blacklist” got above a 3.0. I would have assumed the reverse, but good for NBC. They need all the luck they can get this season…

  • Josh

    Nice ratings for “The Blacklist” and Sleepy Hollow did fantastic against some decent competition. Both shows look like likely hits for NBC and FOX. Good news!

  • CBSviewer

    That’s very low for Hostages :(

  • darius

    Hostages-goodbye!Mom-Chuck Lorre first miss with cbs!Bring back mike&molly

  • Terry

    I hope Castle did okay.

  • Maximillian

    Ouch for Hostages.

    The Voice came back as a monster and great premiere for Blacklist. Really, really enjoyed the pilot. Much better then Revolution’s pilot IMO.

    Sleepy Hollow lost me some this week, so far I am glad its a “limited series” and not 23-24 episodes. The idea of it will get old fast I think.

  • aiden

    The Voice is still slaying! Christina truly brings in the ratings! & don’t say it is because of Adam/Blake because it’s not.

  • Christian

    Ouch for Hostages. I doubt this is going to air all 15 episodes. It’s nice to see not even CBS is impervious to troubled time slots.

  • darius

    Castle-2.2

  • Sean

    Hostages was DOA. Every review I read of it was brutal. CBS usually doesn’t miss that badly on a new show. Pretty shocking for them.

  • Jayme

    Tommy

    I thought Blacklist would have got above 4 with all the hype.

  • Ashley

    The Voice will go down and SH will rise in time.

  • CrimTV

    Wow 2 Broke Girls scored only a 2.8!!! Should never have screwed around with you Monday schedule two seasons ago CBS!

  • DenverDean

    No surprise about Hostages. I always thought the concept was way too far fetched for a 15-episode series. Blacklist will likely be adjusted down and TV up. SH did great considering the extra competition.

  • bjssp

    Very solid ratings for NBC. We’ll see if they hold when the finals are released. The nice thing about The Blacklist is that it looks to be more self-contained, so it’s easier for people to jump in and not feel lost.

    Fox did well, too. Sleepy Hollow holding up so well has to be good news for them.

    CBS could easily have big trouble with Hostages.

  • fox

    HIMYM?

  • Percy

    Now Hawaii Five-0 numbers don’t look that bad on Monday for CBS! Its the comedy lead in lol I hope CBS knows they should have kept it on Mondays or moved it to another day other then Friday

  • Doug

    NBC must be exceptionally pleased today.

    Not too sure about CBS though….

  • Ian9outof10

    Don’t tell me the CBS audience is finally growing tired of the Crime Broadcasting System.
