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).
  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/4 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/3 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.

    sleepy hollow is entertaining. But Revolution is entertaining too and drop a lot. As OUAT. Serialized adventure shows drop a lot. Not sure why.

  • 9989889

    #batb is one of the best shows in a long time! and no i am not being sarcastic I actually love this show & do not understand the ratings. it is a insanely good show!

  • Eelna

    And here, everbody thought the carrie diaries was bad last season. For the cw monday nights have always been weak. Now i have a feeling that tcd can be steady on fridays, which gives them a good renewal chance.

  • Jack Bauer

    Hope Mom gets canceled as does Beauty and the Beast. HOSTAGES could be in danger soon with just 11 episodes left and I hate to admit, Hart of Dixie should be a keeper.

  • Avery

    @Eelna: lol stop kidding yourself. TCD got the pity renewal last year and will only be around for a few episodes. Better say goodbye

  • Shepherd

    @Sara Bibel

    I think the text should read: “HOD matched its season premier rating of 0.4″ unless this week really was the season premier.

  • NielsenSucks

    “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST scored a 0.3, down 25 percent from last week’s 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.”

    Why say this? BatB was preempted in one of Nielsen’s largest markets last week, and the final adjusted numbers of last week were actually lower than the numbers for this week. The problem with a preemption on a premiere date is they screw up accuracy for a while. Last year BatB was over-inflated on its premiere date because of the VP debates. This year, BatB suffered the opposite effect. Of course, putting a show on a Monday night against MNF only further hurts the rankings.

  • zerg

    Maybe BATB will hit 0. by the end of the season…Way to go WC, don’t even try to make good shows ..

  • gerry

    @ eelna

    we will see how it goes. and agreed on last season!! i’m happy for them to leave tcd on friday if it maintains its numbers because i’d love to see it renewed, though i think they may use friday for a graveyard for batb sooner rather than later to burn off the rest of its eps.

  • Tommy M.

    CBS did about as well as I expected with their changes. I don’t think M&M will change the equation for them all that much either. M&M will probably only do marginally better than TBBT repeats are going to do.

  • r0ckmypants

    @tahina – “3 weeks without Sleepy Hollow due to baseball.”

    No, just two. It returns November 4.

  • Jon

    How delusional can you get why would the CW move HoD to 9pm when its doing better than BatB abd what are you talking about when HoD ends it will get its timeslot. HoD will not end at least not this season. On the other hand BatB will end msybe even sooner than May because they need a slot for the midseason shows ;-)

  • Caitlyn

    Can we stop comparing Revolution and The Blacklist now? The shows have nothing to do with each other except for the time slot, but The Blacklist has proven in the + 3 day that it can hold it’s own. And by this point last year Revolution was still falling. For the most part Blacklist is stable.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Sara – Beauty and the Beast isn’t down from last week; it’s even. It adjusted to a 0.3 in the finals.

  • It’s funny

    Castle gets its viewership with next to nil advertisement from ABC. It seems the well ran dry for Castle ad dollars two years ago or something, making any gains they earn for the network that much more profitable.

  • Skylar James

    Castle is doing great this Season, very stable. I expect good things when The Bachelor returns

  • jupiter3765

    castle is doing well

  • Hubert R

    MOM is the only new comedy from CBS that hasn’t had a chance to air after a big show. If it’s constantly led by shows pulling low to mid 2’s, it won’t be really able to grab any audience.

    MOM wasn’t sampled yet. I really think it should go behind TBBT for the second half of the season!

  • amy

    I bet Fox is regretting renewing Sleepy Hollow. Falling falling falling.

  • Skylar James

    Why is Beauty And The Beast in capital letters? Also it got a 0.3 last week
