  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.8/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.8/5 with an encore.

  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.2/4 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" (1.5/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.2/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.6/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

Definitions:

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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    ABC cant even win Friday anymore because of that crappy show The Neighbors. Excellent for Shark Tank rising from last week.

    Hawaii 5-0 premiered ok. Blue Bloods did well.

  • andy

    Good night for CBS. They finished the week strong.

  • Percy

    YAY HAWAII FIVE-0!!!!!

  • Mon

    Well enjoy that while the competition is light, CBS.

  • luka

    Great for MasterChef! :)

  • Dennis

    LMS is doing terrible this year.
    Dito Neighbors

  • Hubert R

    Well, that’s very good for CBS :)

  • riley

    Not bad CBS!

  • JR35

    Shark Tank rules once again. :)

  • Melissa

    Nice for Blue Bloods.

  • bjssp

    Is there any reason NBC shouldn’t simply rerun episodes of its sitcoms at 8:00 on Fridays for most of the season? I know Dateline is scheduled to go here, but that can go pretty much anywhere at any time. The goal now should be to drive as many people to its Thursday comedies as possible. There’s some idea that people will just watch them on Fridays instead, but I doubt there’s a big trade off like that.

  • KJ

    Shark Tank saving ABC, like I suspected. Come on ABC, we want more reality shows on your channel please

  • Hardline_Pro

    It’s “Hawaii Five-0 not “Hawaii Five-O”.

  • Five-0

    1.5 For 5-0? This year premiere viewers up a million but got 1.5? :/

    Last year got 1.8 with 8.06m viewers.

  • sakil

    @Hardline_Pro – No, it’s Hawaii Die-O. :)

  • riley

    Shark tank should air at 8 and then followed by the comedy hour.

  • Jenna

    Hawaii Five 0 may be down a small amount but it moved from Mondays to Friday and had a leadin with a much lower demo number than last year. Considering everything I think H50 did very well on its new night.

  • Bad Wolf

    5-0 is going to die a slow death on Fridays. I can’t wait for Sunday’s ratings, I wonder what CBS will do next season with their Friday and Sunday dramas : will they cancel 5-0 and/or Blue Bloods to try The Good Wife and/or The Mentalist on Friday ?

  • David Howell

    Those who called for Malibu Country to be renewed instead are… RIGHT! Not that Shark Tank needs a stinking lead-in.

    Not surprised by the Five-0 number, but impressed that Blue Bloods built on it.

  • TV God

    Not good, for LMS, I want that show to be around for 8 seasons.
