Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Colts/Chargers) was simulcast on the NBC affiliate in Indianapolis. As a result, NBC 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 2 percent from last week's 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. The Blacklist  garnered a 3.2 up 3 percent from last week’s 3.1 adults 18-49 rating.  NBC’s line up was pre-empted in Indianapolis for football, so these numbers may be inflated.

On CBS, How I Met Your Mother matched last week's 3.0 adults 18-49 rating. The timeslot premiere of 2 Broke Girls notched a 2.5 up 9 percent from last week's series low 2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Mom garnered a 1.9 down 10 percent from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were accurate for 2 Broke Girls but too optimistic for Mom. Hostages matched last week's series low 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

On FOX, Bones scored a 2.0 down 5 percent  from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Sleepy Hollow garnered a 2.6 down 7 percent from last week's 2.8 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC,  Dancing With the Stars earned a 2.1, 5 percent from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. Castle notched  a 2.2 up 16 percent from last week's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

On the CW, the season premiere of Hart of Dixie matched last week’s 0.4. Beauty and the Beast scored a 0.3, even with last week’s adults 18-49 rating.

In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

via NBC press note:

  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.9/8 with an encore telecast; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.2/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.2/6.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4 with an encore; "Late Show," 0.5/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.3/4 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" (1.4/5 in metered-market households with an encore) beat CBS's original "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.1/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/4 in 18-49 with an encore) topped "Late Late Show" (0.2/2).

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    HoD & BataB are up in A 18-34& W 18-34, wich is what cw cares most about along with DVr,online,onDemand veiweing not 18-49.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Brandy – They both may be up, but they’re still really low in those demos compared to other shows on the network.

  • alffan

    Mom is funny and gets funnier .. it needs a better lead in frankly. And I don’t believe M&M is the show. It honestly would’ve been better after TBBT and the Millers after TAAHM

  • HalCapone

    Please, CBS, throw Mom under the train. Great leads actresses but horrible and offensive Chuck Lorre stories and dialogue.

  • Joseph

    Besides ESPN’s football game, broadcast network programming last night (October 14th) also faced competition from TBS’s coverage of the National league Championship Series, and with the number-two market Los Angeles Dodgers playing, the baseball game probably dominated local ratings in L.A.

  • gerry

    @ afflan

    agreed. i’m really surprised that chuck lorre didn’t somehow negotiate the spot after tbbt for mom v the millers but it could still happen before the season is over. i doubt that chuck lorre will let moms go without a fight.

    NBC rockin it! ABC ready for the old folks home!

  • TV-aholic

    THE VOICE did air in Indianapolis, during primetime, but on the NBC affiliates sub channel, which normally airs COZI-TV. The station did scroll the information during the pregame and Monday Night Football.

  • Joseph A

    Well my behavior follows the demo ,
    I watch THE VOICE , and then follow that with THE BLACKLIST ,

    Got to hand it to the crew that produces THE VOICE , they auditions were done in July, and the Battle Rounds currently being seen were done in August. The fact that the viewing audience does not have a result disconnect is pretty cool.

    As for the BLACKLIST , I love the mix of action, and drama.
    For me its the best new show of 2013.

  • CW’s Fans Suck!

    Die Beauty & the Crap already!!! I don’t get the love for that show. It’s terrible!! Just like people blabbering that Ringer was the best show of the century. CW fans are just crazy lol

  • It’s funny

    @DrainBamage – I don’t know what you mean. Are you trying to be ironic? Funny? ???

  • TBM

    CBS shouldn’t have cancelled Rules of Engagement. I bet they’re wishing they had that about now.

  • k:Alex

    Are the half our ratings already post?

  • william

    the only thing i still watch on the cw is supernatural, and i’m only kind of interested in one new show from that network(reign). they never should have cancelled ringer & the secret circle. they could have just cut back on the cgi special effects, and adapted the show to a smaller budget. the only reason the WB ended and had to become the CW was because a lot of warner bros movies lost them money so they choose to sacrifice the WB.

  • Ember

    EVERYONE watch reign live so they HAVE to cancel BATB because its ratings make me cringe and im surprised the CW people aren’t out there digging their own graves physically cause they might as well be with this monday lineup.

  • reallypeople


    You are aware that you are both 1) completely wrong about sci-fi/horror/fantasy genre fatigue 2) your, very unlikely and ridiculous, downward spiral to the lower 1s and 3) there’s no such “out” regarding Sleepy Hollow’s renewal. And they, certainly, would NEVER offer it to a competing network (broadcast or cable). That’s just absurd. Ditto them “pulling out” as you claim.

  • Judy912

    CASTLE was nothing short of AMAZING last night. Back at the 12th with the whole gang and loving every moment of it. Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic are what keep this series on it’s feet. The entire cast, writers and crew members keep this series afloat and we the fans are loving it. Nothing but pure entertainment without graphic violence, now that’s what I call entertainment for the entire family. It leaves the viewer with a good feeling inside at the end of each episode. Keep it coming Andrew W Marlow(executive producer)for we the fans are longing for more of the same.

  • ToXiX

    That is not good for Mom.

    Mom is easily the best show on CBS Mondays.

    … Until Mike & Molly returns.

  • DrainBamage

    @Its Funny-Confusing works for me.

  • liz

    Sleepy Hollow continues to fail.
