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.

    I wonder if we can now attribute the Goldbergs/Trophy Wife’s steady ratings last week to the FOX comedies being absent.

  • spinthesky

    Go New Girl and Mindy! Showing Goldbergs and Trophy Wife who’s boss. :)

  • gerry

    so happy TO is doing well. i watch tvd but i’m surprised about how much i really really like TO. i just didn’t expect it.

    abc comedies didn’t tank, they’re fluctuating around that number. they are so not a fit for AFTER AoS. i fully expect them to be moved on the spring schedule.

    also a decent showing for bk99 and mindy! i’ll be catching up on those tonight.

    isn’t nbc airing the voice from 9-11 wasting a really good lead in? can’t they move BL somewhere else? -g

  • dantas

    Good morning, folks! How are you doing?

    POI and New Girl are safe. The Almighty Syndication Gods will assure a fourth season for both.

    Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is also safe – for now. Fans should only start worrying if it falls to a 2.0 before Spring. I now believe it’ll be renewed as long as it stays above 1.7 this whole season.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine is this year’s The Mindy Project. Despite being below the channel’s average, it’s been doing better than Dads and “Mindy’s Cute Clan”. FOX may give it another shot. It’ll depend on how the show holds up it audience after its post-Superbowl episode.

    Other than that, The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, Dads & The Mindy Project WILL all get canceled.

  • Ted Craig


    I would attribute TW’s rise to the lack of TMP, for sure. I think they’re chasing the same demo.

  • a p garcia

    By the end of the season AOS will probably rate about a 2.1!

  • Janus

    Love how people claim the reason an episode slips in ratings A LITTLE is because it agrees with their prejudice that the episode was no good. And they talk for the majority of people–ah no, they just speak for themselves.

    SPN did fine–there is always dips with all shows and happened to SPN last year.

  • Michael1


    If ABC moves “Trophy Wife”, its viewers will accept nothing less than a spot after “Modern Family”. That is the most popular comment that anyone makes about the show. Next comes claiming that show’s title is misleading without offering a better alternative. I would call it “Untitled Project for Julie Andrews’ Daughter-in-Law”.



    Series LOWS for entire ABC sked & CMA news special tanks w/ 0.7–NOT GOOD

    New Girl perks UP to 2.0 while other sitcoms still prove rather anemic

    CW still kinda holding its own (a good thing)

    CBS may adjust up w/ NCIS, LA 2.4 & POI 1.9 not too good, but not too bad either

    TBL up from last week’s season low, but the 2-hr Voice posts its season low, yet still takes night

  • anon

    @Tran Sadly I think some fanboys/girls like to hate on the TV version of AoS partly (they claim) because it doesn’t ‘live up to’ the ‘powerful organization’ shown in the promo for the upcoming Captain America: Winter Soldier film. (Trying to compare a TV show to a film though…I don’t know if its fair?)

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    The TV LISTINGS at the upper right are still showing Tuesday’s programming.

    I confirm I am NOT a spammer or a role model

  • Marc

    The Golbergs should be moved to after the middle.

  • Carl

    @DougF, I think it’s fair to potentially call a .02 drop flat on its face, as it’s a little more than just fluctuation. Hopefully they will increase next week (and either adjust up or not adjust down this week).

  • TV Viewer

    As an NCIS fan (and last night’s episode about two WWII veterans was great), I want to thank NBC for moving the Voice from 8 to 9 PM. That did not turn out too well for The Biggest Loser, but, the Voice did great from 9 to 11.

  • dantas

    Also, people thinking ABC will move The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife or Super Fun Night are delusional and should stop doing crack immediately.

  • Kate


    This site compares prelims to prelims. You can’t compare prelims to finals because the prelims can always adjust up or down. We can’t say the Originals is down yet because we don’t know if it will adjust up in the finals.

  • David


    I must apologise for using the budget excuse in my comment about SHIELD. I just presumed from what I was hearing about the show it had a big budget that was being wasted but it makes sense if the budget is a lot smaller than I thought.


    @ Edward

    Premiere of AOS was 4.7, prelim of 2.5 not quite half (almost) but you have to wait for the finals for comparison

  • Bay

    So 1.5 is now considered good in the nets PR machine now? huh? Guess I have to revise my thinking on what a good rating is. The L+3 and L+7 and now L+30 day ratings give them a reason for their jobs, I guess.

  • s0303

    happy the biggest loser is back in the 2’s…doing good for a nbc show and it’s in its 15th installment :) too bad who went home last night…he’s still over 400 lbs :(
