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.

    AOS ratings make me sad. But I expected this to happen.

    and Trophy Wife and Goldbergs need to be moved STAT

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go POI! (and NCIS twins)

    SH and SHIELD doing very similarly, a few weeks into the season.

    B99 starting to catch on?

    The Voice starting to get hoarse?

  • James

    Fox’s numbers are good especially when the comedies hold up against strong competition.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I feel like Shield would have had a real chance at stabaliing if it had aired last week and it could have boosted the comedies a few tenths too.

    I really hope Thor renews some interest soon.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Freyja – “But is it me or was everything a bit down last night including NCIS?”

    It’s just you. The Biggest Loser, New Girl and The Mindy Project were up, while Dads, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Originals and Person of Interest were all flat versus last week.

  • joy

    Good for TO!!

  • steven

    AOS will soon be at No Ordinary Family levels.

  • anon

    How did SPN’s storyline with ‘Dean as a dog’ go? lol With that storyline and the Wizard Of Oz themed one last week, they’re certainly having some ‘interesting’ ideas lately. lol. ;p Good to see though that they’re still pulling in 2+mil viewers. -_^

  • C.S.Strowbridge

    Agents of Shield is still the in the top three rated dramas on ABC. It’s not going to be cancelled at this point. Its budget might be high, but it also helps promote Marvel, so it has additional revenue streams.

  • Tran

    What’s with all the hate about Agents of SHIELD? :-(

  • Marc

    Noone mentions that dad’s is continously climbing and holding steady.

    I will predict Renwal on this one.

  • Paleonut

    Does the time change legitimately affect ratings? Or is that one of the Bingo squares? ;-)

  • DougF


    Everything except was down except for FOX’s entire Tues. line-up, Biggest Loser, and POI

    And as predicted, by everyone who watched last week and saw this week’s promos, Supernatural fell on its face. Hope it teaches the idiots who run this once great show that you can’t have two Disney episodes in a row and get away with it. I hate it when they turn my favorite monster show into a sitcom.

    In comparison The Originals was excellent last night. The show gets better every week. Hope we see a rise in its numbers; it deserves it.

  • Wright

    Hopefully TO, SPN and AoS rise in the finals. All three were great last night. AoS showed a lot of character development. Elijah was awesome on TO and SPN was hilarious.

  • CBS makes me happy

    Go Detective Carter!

  • Kate


    Yeah, I noticed that too but The Originals could adjust up and match the 1.0. I just found it weird that Supernatural was down two tenths from last week’s prelims when the total audience wasn’t that much lower.

  • Gaius Bolling

    A.O.S. always adjusts up in the finals though. Seems like the show has stabilized around this level in the demo and total viewers. I’m sure ABC wants more but at the moment it’s up there with Scandal and Grey’s…can’t be too upset about that..

  • psychic

    It’s too bad SHIELD is falling because I see a definite rise in quality from the pilot. The main guy is still Captain Generic but otherwise the show is getting pretty interesting, almost Fringe-like.
