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.

    Hope Sleepy Hollow doesn’t get cancelled. Its the only show on Fox aside from the Simpsons that I like

  • gerry

    @ avery

    not necessarily. with batb’s obvious crash and burn, it will really depend on what the new shows for spring are able to do (as well as reign, which we have yet to see). tcd has pulled higher numbers on a monday than batb, so if they opt to keep one over the other, tcd might have a slim chance. i mean, it is certainly looking a lot prettier to the network now than it did in the spring.

  • DW

    whats the mendoza line with CW shows? i know they like to tout on demand and online usage but a lot of people would have to see it that way if beauty is doing anything.

  • Petar

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

    Nope. They don’t. And 99% of the shows are the in the same teritory

  • killerBee

    Sleepy hollow should be a lead in for bones…It comes on way too late for most people…will be adjusted up though

  • Petar

    @Hope Sleepy Hollow doesn’t get cancelled

    It won’t. It’s already renewed for second season.

  • TVDude

    Overall, a down night, possibly even for NBC in the finals. I think CBS is in trouble on Mondays this season and TBBT or Mike & Molly won’t really help the other shows much. I would actually expect it to do worse after M&M begins, but we shall see. CBS has to be disappointed with 2BG since it did pretty good back when Two and a Half Men was on Monday’s and would sometimes out-rate it.

  • a p garcia

    When this cycle of The Voice goes off, will NBC put The Blacklist on hiatus until the next cycle if The Voice! I can’t believe Hostages got a 1.2, my guess it will change times with H50 hopefully by next week.

  • Skylar James

    @gerry: how is it looking prettier when it hasnt even premiered? Also lets not forget TCD only had 13 episodes last season. There’s no reason at all for them to keep it on Fridays with pity numbers. If they eventually wanna burn a show on Fridays to get to Season 4 it’ll be BATB, but even I doubt that’ll be the case. Both shows are goners, and next season I believe HOD will be taking the Friday spot.

  • reidjr


    Its still doing real well.

  • Paulo PT

    Can Mike & Molly do better than TBBT repeats?

    “#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!”

    i don’t know what your definition of a good and best show. but to called BATB is best show in a long time, its kinda – not right. Castle is a good show and BATB is way far behind to stand on same lavel as Castle. so go figure!

  • Percysowner

    Admittedly I’m not a ratings guru, but I don’t see Sleepy Hollow as being in any kind of trouble at the moment. X-Factor is underperforming, Fox’s new comedies are nothing to write home about and Mindy Project is only getting middling ratings. Sleepy Hollow is still the number one scripted show on Fox. The 2 week break may hurt them in the ratings, but they are not going to have to deal with coming back from winter break, where many shows traditionally drop. With SH only having 13 episodes, they will also not have to contend with the drop off that comes with Daylight Savings time. The year gap between season one and two may well affect ratings NEXT YEAR, but for this year it is already renewed and any drops aren’t that big. As for next year, running like a cable network with a 13 episode season followed by a break is an experiment. It may pay off or it may hurt the show. But right now we don’t have enough information to really know.

    Give it time , beauty has the capacity to go up…we have seen it before.

  • Avery

    @gerry: oh please, TCD would not be pulling higher numbers, lets be realistic. Even HOD is down from last year. TCD will air its few episodes and be gone.

  • zth


    You’re right, Blacklist is one of the biggest DVR players in the history of television.

  • A.C.

    The novelty of SLEEPY HOLLOW is wearing off.

  • CBSviewer

    Mom is DOA. I think it will be canceled soon and replace by Friends with Better Lives.

  • Jules

    The CW should do this depending on how reign does

    Romantic Mondays

    HOD and Reign order depending on whose better
    Spring – HOD and Star crossed if reign flops
