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.

    good for castle

  • Lisa

    The CW has to get rid of Beauty and the Beast. What a weak show!

  • zth

    The Voice and Blacklist very steady.

    Sleepy Hollow continues to drop, I’m not sure when it will stabilize.

    Repeats of TBBT didn’t do much to help CBS’ night, perhaps because The Voice is bigger this year than last fall.

  • Rick

    I wonder how much longer Hostages hangs on for, does CBS ride out the remainder of the season since it’s a one-season deal?

  • Petar

    Cancel Mom. Move TAHM back to Monday for final season and bring back POI to 9 pm on thursday! And YES CBS you are idiots.

  • Brandon

    That repeat of The Big Bang theory is not doing Mom any favors. Shame because it’s the only Cbs comedy I can stand.Beauty and beast is done.

  • hmm

    Happy to see Castle up!

  • chicco

    ALl the networks are doing bad this season
    Bad nights ;
    ABC ; Sunday & Monday
    CBS ; Sunday & they killed Monday , Thursday is falling apart
    CW ; Monday is really really really BAD , but they fixed the other nights that’s a good thing
    FOX ; Tuesday & Thursday & Wed. are disastrous
    NBC ; except for Voice nights no Comment

  • Sierra

    @hammard: BBT repeat did worse than 2 Broke Girls in that timeslot, its normal that Mom would also go lower

  • gerry

    stick a knife in batb. my, crazy how that show fell down without tvd to prop it up… (i remember saying this last year and getting told i was wrong A LOT. my, it is nice to be right ;) )

    too bad the good news for 2bg is bad news for mom.

    sleepy hollow is still doing just fine. surprise hit of the season, i’d say.

    voice is fine as well. i don’t watch, but maybe this is the usual fall after the blind auditions? and it appears blacklist and james spader are doing fine. whatevs, i can’t stand him but its nice that nbc has at least one show other than the voice that’s working for them.

  • k:Alex

    I think The Voice “only” add’s 0.6 rating at max.
    We saw it by Chicago Fire, Revolution, and I hope for Blacklist it is true, so when The Voice go away they get a 2.5.

    Last episode was good, I like the fact that no character is safe.

  • lisa

    Sleepy Hollow is finished.

  • Samunto

    Unbelievable how fast CBS has fallen to 4th place on Mondays.

    Just like i said yesterday, TBBT rpt is perfoming at the same levels it did in summer and not the 3+ people were shouting about yesterday!

    Solid FOX!

  • Secret Shame

    The CW are in a tough spot with BATB. There is no chance it gets renewed, but if I recall correctly they gave it a 22 episode order for this season. It’s getting crucified, but they have a lot of money tied up in 20 more episodes and the prospect of ratings disappearing into the margin of error by Spring.

    Any other network would have yanked it off the schedule approximately 30 seconds after the premiere numbers arrived. The CW may not however as they really don’t have a lot in reserve for the rest of the year. Repeats of one of their other shows probably get the same ratings.

  • paddii

    Beauty and the Beast is a disaster. It will probably be replaced by Starcrossed in the midseason. At least Hart of Dixie is goin steady. Same as Gossip Girl in it’s final season.

  • A.J.P.

    Yes for Castle :) Its holding up well even though ABC neglects to promote it unlike other shows which it promotes to no end and are still doing horribly.

  • CBS hated

    Awful for Mom

  • WHugoP

    Good for 2 Broke Girls and Castle. Bad for Mom and BaTB.

  • AlanHalliwell

    2 Broke Girls 2nd of Night for CBS which is Good It can Keep around 2.5 it will be great!Mom is still an ok show It can hold the majority of its Lead in it will be interesting to see what CBS will do

  • Bad Wolf

    If The CW heads are not brain damaged, Hart of Dixie will be renewed for a very shortened season, like Nikita. And also, Beauty & The Beast will be cancelled.

    I can’t help being amazed at how well old shows like Bones and Castle, which have never been standouts regarding their quality, are currently faring. I don’t know how Bones will do on Fridays, but both are very likely to go on a few more seasons.

    Wasn’t Mom touted as a certain hit for CBS when it was greenlighted ? I’m really sorry for Allison Janney…
