via NBC press note:

In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:


  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.8/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.6/7; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.0/6.


  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 1.0/5; "Late Show," 0.5/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/4.


  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.1/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.


  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.5/6 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.3/5).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.6/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).


  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.9/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/3 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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Not to bad for FOX and Yay for Mindy.

  • Michael

    The Voice is still doing well, but this season just isn’t doing it for me. I find it rather dull, boring, and uninspiring. It has really nothing to do with the judges, more with the contestants.

  • Archie

    how are people saying “Great for Fox” with those ratings? those are terrible.

  • sue

    Taking the baseball break into mind….not bad, FOX tuesday. Not bad at all.

  • todd

    a 1.6 is outstanding? hahahahaha!


    Good for FOX comedy. Thought they were going to fall like Sleepy Hollow did after the hiatus. I see Mindy Project being renewed for full season given that FOX appears to hate the comedies they have on the shelf.

  • eu

    Supernatural ):

  • Paleonut

    We can post videos now?

  • Freyja

    Not surprised for SPN considering that most people either hated last weeks episode and the previews for this week were weak.. It will bounce up again next week for sure, not overly worried.

    But is it me or was everything a bit down last night including NCIS? Which is a shame since it was a fantastic episode, love me some Jackson Gibbs, I even cried at the end.

  • Ryan

    Mindy skews SO young it’s crazy. Good to see New Girl up. Really wish POI would go back into the 2’s

  • Joe Daniels

    A 200,000 viewer drop for The Originals in 30 minutes. That’s not good.

  • Carl

    Not entirely surprised about SPN, as it was never going to always stay above 1.0, and this was advertised as another “wacky” episode – these rarely seem to rate well. I’d say it’s because of disappointment in stories, but there’s always disappointment in stories with some fans, so who knows.

    So is The Originals going to adjust up?

    I expected more for the Robin Roberts special.

  • cimmer

    Agents of Shield is getting uncomfortably close to The Biggest Loser territory and slipping into third place.

  • shogun


    Eh, last nights episode was an improvement, but it still isn’t a great show.

  • Percysowner

    The previews for SPN looked not good, although people who watched it generally liked it. People may have held off waiting for reviews, or just decided it didn’t look that great. In any case .9 isn’t bad for the CW and it could adjust up.

  • danny94

    sucks for the Goldbergs and trophy wife, best new comedies this season, Agents of shield still falling, abc cant be to happy with its performance

  • alexia

    Yeesh, AoS has lost more than 2.0 since it’s premiere. This was the single most-hyped showed of the fall, ABC has to be disappointed considering it’s budget.

    Full season order is assured, but a second season? We’ll have to wait and see.

  • David

    I’m sure the bear is getting very annoyed The Mindy Project keeps on fluctuating in the ratings as he doesn’t know wether he’ll be able to eat it yet. Also, pretty good for Dads & Brooklyn Nine-Nine too, holding steady against NCIS and SHIELD.

    As for SHIELD, still OK ratings but fall any further and I’m not sure ABC can justify its big budget. As for The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife, they’ve fallen again now SHIELD’s back on. It’s probably because the Fox comedies were back again but still, an interest point.

    The rest of the night is pretty uninteresting as everything else did as I expected.

  • Mindyabusiness

    Great for TO! It’d be even better if it adjusted up a tenth.

    Keep on chuggin’ Mindy!

  • DougF


    The Originals didn’t fall that much in viewers (had 2.05 last week) either and that was down from last week’s final of 1.0.
