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 okay then l, it’s finished after season 2

  • zth


    Last fall, when NBC was preempted in just one city or so The Voice used to adjust upwards not downwards, so the numbers may be actually deflated.

  • Shawn

    AT least Hostages did not fall any more! I know it will not be brought back for another season, but atleast if it does not fall any more they will probably let the 15 episodes of the show air for this season! I really think the show is fun to watch, and it is ashame more people are not smart enough to watch it!

  • Petar

    @ We Are Men got canceled at a 1.8

    Partners got canceled with 1.9.

  • CrimeDawg

    I am sure it will be adjusted down since it started at 10:01 but great numbers for The Blacklist. Definitely my favorite new show of the season.

    I will be curious to see what NBC does in January since they have the Winter Olympics for 2 1/2 weeks in Feburary.

  • grey

    I think “Castle” might get adjusted down; “DWTS” ran over.

  • r0ckmypants

    @skyfi – “Hype is over. Yeah, Sleepy Hollow is finished…

    BatB will rise to 0.4 and maybe even hit 0.5.”

    I’m hoping you’re being sarcastic. Or satirical. Anything but serious.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Is SLEEPY falling each week? Haven’t watched it yet….

  • Setheriel

    Sleepy Hollow mostly steady, i think it will stabilize around this level.

    The Voice a beast as usual.

    The Blacklist still doing great. Fantastic episode last night.

    Castle, just keeps chugging. Also a fantastic episode last night.

    @skyfi and lisa

    Yeah Sleepy Hollow, the show that has already been renewed for a 2nd season sure seems dead. /s Hilarious.

  • Matt

    Just to note— Mom was up a lot in viewers. Just weirdly down in demo

  • Ashley

    Yeah for Sleepy Hollow!!! Didn’t drop much.


    CBS is in such dire straits now, especially 9-11

    ABC new old folks home w/ DWTS & Castle

    Bones/SH about steady for FOX, though Almost Human will supplant Bones move to Fri

    NBC will still go on singing (I’m sure) after adjustments as The Voice/Blacklist are unstoppable

  • Sam

    I think BATB is a pretty decent show but it hasn’t helped this year that eps air in Canada the night before it airs in the US so most people are getting it online rather than waiting the extra day to watch.

    Either way it’s gonna be a goner which is a shame.

  • Sarah g.

    BATB was boring and bad! Yes delete.

  • Petar

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

    Yep. They were beating on monday with big margin all networks now look with fear to UNI not to beat them.

  • Heather

    Seems all live tv shows trending down with some exceptions. DVR, On Demand and On Line viewing is way way up on all shows. Now people don’t have to be chained to the tv but can watch at their leisure. On Demand shows now are disabling the fast forward function for a reason so DVR’ing is the only way to be able to fast forward through commercials, even the on line shows has commercials. More shows subtly added product placement during shows for a reason also. Now this is my opinion only but I think advertisers as well as tv executives are paying more attention to the Live + 3 and the Live +7 and if they aren’t maybe they should be. Viewing has changed and everyone has to adjust to that. We can now live our lives and not be chained to tv on certian nights and watch our favorite shows but we get to pick the when, well until they get cancelled of course.

  • Samunto

    CBS is facing tough times. They ought to move TAAHM back to Mondays. Mike and Molly isn’t such strong a show and will probably also do around a 2.3 at 9pm.
    Their Thursday 9pm isn’t as strong as hoped and POI (where’s Petar?)is failing too in it’s new slot.

    The biggest question is whether MOM will gradually rise in the coming episodes just like TBBT did back then. Being from Lorre and given the star power, i still expect a full back 9 order.

  • Sierra

    @david d: its still the 2nd highest rated drama of the night, and without the powerful lead in from The Voice.

  • TimsDale4ever

    The MOM show seemed really cute at first but I noticed last night’s episode was sort of flat and uneventful.

  • Quick

    LOL @ B&TB.
    The show is unbearable to watch. It was even worse than Ringer and TSC (and those shows sucked!) Dixie is kinda boring too. Both shows look like cheap soap operas.
