Sleepy Hollow October 14

Adults 18-49: Rating/Share 4.0/11 2.3/6 2.1/6 2.0/5 1.4/4 0.4/1
Adults 18-34: Rating/Share 3.0/9 1.7/5 1.6/5 1.5/5 1.1/3 0.4/1

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.

  • Caitlyn

    @Lisa How is Sleepy Hollow finished? They already got picked up for a second season.

  • Sierra

    @paddii: both shows are steady, steadily terrible!

  • tvwatcher

    Blacklist is very steady! Sad to see SH falling, it’s a very entertaining show.

  • Mon

    Don’t give up on Mom CBS! Mike & Molly looks compatible with it.

  • gerry

    sleepy hollow may have dropped a bit but its still at a 2.6 which seems pretty ok for a fox serial to me…

  • James

    ABC basically ignores Castle and it just keeps chugging along. People love Nathan Fillion.

  • hammard

    CBS probably hoped Big Bang Theory would help the whole night as it meant no We Are Men. We’ll have to wait and see what happens with Mike and Molly…

  • zth

    Also, The voice will adjust up 2 tenths as usually, so it actually increased from last week most certainly.

  • Nasir

    Maybe BATB will get pushed to Friday once Nikita and TCD wraps up or gets a burn off in the summer. I can see HoD getting pushed to 9 PM and Star-Crossed being at 8 on Mondays come Midseason..

    I wish Mom would rise. It’s so funny and the only comedy I actually watch.

  • lisa

    @Caitlyn it continues to drop. It will be under Bones soon enough.

  • david d

    Blacklist is UP despite Voice down. Happy to see it level off, last night’s episode was great.

    Clearly the hit of the fall with Sleepy Hollow dropping like a stone

  • AdamP

    I hope Mom is successful but keep in mind, We Are Men got canceled at a 1.8
    I don’t think We Are Men was given a fair chance as even though it dropped to a 1.8 it debuted at a 2.0 and therefore retained 90% of it’s original audience.

    Given the chance I believe We Are Men’s ratings could’ve improved and I hope Mom’s ratings at least stay where they are as it is one of the few good comedies (others being HIMYM and The Crazy Ones) that CBS has. I really hope they stick with it.

  • Petar

    @Awful for Mom

    Awful for all comedy experiment on CBS! And they move their rising star ofr that nightmare. Idiots. AT least 2BG is stable.

  • skyfi

    Hype is over. Yeah, Sleepy Hollow is finished…

    BatB will rise to 0.4 and maybe even hit 0.5.

  • Billy

    Let’s be realistic here. A TBBT repeat on a special night and time just arranged last week is not going to put up big numbers. I bet most of the regular TBBT audience didn’t even know it was on. The same repeat on in its regular time slot would have been much, much higher.

  • Petar

    @Also, The voice will adjust up 2 tenths as usually, so it actually increased from last week most certainly.

    Nope. Football is big factor and will take tehth ot two from all nbc shows.

  • Jess

    Pretty solid numbers for Bones& Castle IMO. Good for them. Also i think both of them will adjusted up one tenth. And another terrible night for CW.

  • Caitlyn

    @Lisa but that means nothing right now. They’re still coming back for a season 2, therefore not finished.

  • CBS hater

    Even with a BBT repeat, CBS still in 4th place haha

  • BBFan

    Sleepy Hollow was going vs ESPN NFL & TBS NLCS of LAD vs STL, both having lg natl followings. That’s a solid # considering the ep was rather sleepy. I expect it’s C3 & L7 to rise as well because of the conflict with live sports. MLB will be over when it’s next prem airs on Nov 4. Similarly, Bones should get a big lift with the wedding ep. I expect it to beat Stars.

    Despite her bad acting, Blacklist has found traction vs otherwise weak competition. It would probably be down to 2.2 though if not for The Voice.

    As for the CW, the rules are different. They aren’t really competing with the national networks as much as they are local affiliates airing local programming then. That’s why those affiliates are quick to move ep to Sat or Sun night when they have a local pro sports team to air in those hrs instead. Beast fig’s to do as well or better than Dixie in the earlier slot so I think CW will move it there when Dixie ends. An hr earlier, might draw some of the Hollow fans.
