Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Falcons/Jets) was simulcast on the ABC affiliate in Atlanta and the CW affiliate in New York. As a result, ABC and 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 earned a 4.5, down two tenths from last week's 4.7 adults 18-49 rating. The Blacklist  garnered a 3.2, down a single tenth from last week’s 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.

On CBS, How I Met Your Mother scored a  2.9, down two tenths from last week's 3.1 adults 18-49rating.  We Are Men notched a 1.8, down two tenths from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. 2 Broke Girls hit a new series low 2.2 after last week's series low matching 2.4  adults 18-49 rating. Mom garnered a 2.0, down two tenths from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating . Hostages earned a 1.2, down three tenths from last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 rating.

On FOX, Bones scored a 2.0, down two tenths from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Sleepy Hollow garnered a 2.7, down three tenths from last week's 3.0 adults 18-49.

On ABC,  Dancing With the Stars earned a 2.1, up a tenth from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating . Castle notched  a 2.0, down two tenths from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.

On the CW, the season premiere of Hart of Dixie scored a 0.4, down three tenths from last year's 0.7 premiere rating and down two tenths  from last season's 0.6 rating for the season finale. The second season premiere of Beauty and the Beast scored a 0.4, also down sharply from last year's 1.1 adults 18-49 premiere rating, and down a tenth from the 0.5 the season finale earned. Your predictions were too optimistic.

In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 3.0/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.3/6; 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," 0.4/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/4.

From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/5 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" (1.6/6 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).

At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 1.0/4 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.4/3 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.

    The Blacklist still reigning supreme over Chicago (Cool) Fire.

    Tonight, Chicago (Cool) Fire gets even colder with a Scandal repeat airing on ABC and a brand new POI on CBS. Love it!

  • Edward

    Didn’t the Blacklist get a 3.2?

  • k:Alex

    Noo, that great show! (the blacklist)

  • mathew

    ouch cw!

  • CrimTV

    Yes The Blacklist got a 3.2, it says it in the table.

  • Dillan

    Ouch for 2 Broke Girls.

    Poor numbers for The CW. I expected higher for HoD, so are these numbers likely to be adjusted down even more?!

  • John A

    Wow HOD and BATB are a joke.

  • k:Alex

    And Hostage is canceled end of the week, or switched with some other show.

  • Gregg

    Wow, the wheels have really fallen off the CBS bandwagon this season on Mondays. Those are some terrible ratings for their shows!

  • Peter

    That’s great for The Blacklist considering there was baseball last night. Blacklist didn’t drop that much.

  • Vasco Silva

    Hart =(

  • Dan

    Please tell me the 3.2 in the table for The Blacklist is correct and not the 3.0 in the analysis.

  • John A

    HOD and BATB could adjust down? Lmao.

  • Candice

    Oh, why are Sleepy Hollow ratings shrinking??? That show is so awesome and just gets better and better. At least it’s already been renewed.

    Ouch for the CW.

    Really everything is down. I think most people are just not watching live TV any more. I really hope that the DVR/on demand/Hulu / online ratings are taken in to account.

  • jupiter3765

    where is the renew cancel index

  • Jonay Moon

    Friday We Are Men will be canceled mark my words!!

  • Owen W

    Poor the CW & CBS

    Only question that remains is what will replace HOSTAGES?
    – The Mentalist
    – H50
    – Reruns of something
    – Something new? Don’t know if they have something ready

    Could easily be combined with a return of Mike & Molly replacing a comedy to try to lift the mondays.

  • Camila

    what NBC would be without The Voice?

  • Cougar Town Forever

    DWTS seems to have found a floor around 2.0. I think cutting back to one day a week has been good.

  • luka

    My predictions for Nov 4:

    Almost Human – 11 mln and 3.8
    Sleepy Hollow – 8.5 mln and 3.2
