  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.7/4; "Late Show," 0.6/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.0/5.

 

  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.5/5 in metered-market households and a 0.6/4 in 18-49 in the 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.

    Alice did less than half the ratings in the same timeslot as a 47-year old Charlie Brown cartoon, stretching 25 minutes of footage into an hour-long timeslot. ABC has a lot of Charlie Brown cartoons in its library…

  • Scott

    Results shows for The Voice have always been rated low, around 10-11 mil the past few seasons while other portions of the season averaged 12-14 million.

  • Dan

    Wow maybe ABC might cut the wonderland order.

    And I thought that Voice would be new. NBC should’ve had a new voice of some kind to help the comedies out.

  • TerryL

    Sean Saves the World was laugh out loud good last night and Two 1/2 Men storylines are getting old and boring.

  • Missy

    Tell me again why FOX is sending Bones to Friday while it’s getting almost a point more than Glee and X-Factor?

  • Wright

    I’m really hoping Reign adjusts up in the finals. I LOVE that show.
    TVD was so boring last night. I can’t believe Nina Dobrev is playing 3 characters now.
    :( Elementary

  • ccc

    You rentention people are going to be less than thrilled with Sean, but good for NBC

  • Mon

    I knew CBS Monday comedies 8:30-10:00 had a good shot at beating the Thursday comedies after TBBT. Monday has better flow. Thursday has a single cam comedy in the middle and a family comedy after TBBT. Oh yeah I almost forgot, The Millers is a CBS produced comedy. :roll: We Are Men, which got the post-HIMYM was also a CBS produced comedy. Funny how favoritism sometimes backfires.

  • Reign Fan

    Reign!!!!
    Upward adjustment in finals please.

  • jupiter3765

    well the reason scandal and greys are down is because of all my children and one life to live fans boycotting abc

    RE: Reign–

    According to my sources, Reign had a 0.7/06 for its half hour ratings. Keep calm and comment on.

  • CrimTV

    Reign should have a 0.7/2 rating!

  • Alex

    I feel that Revenge and Scandal have reversed in terms of quality this season. (Revenge getting better, Scandal declining)

    Btw anyone think Scandal is copying revenge?
    –> b613 is the new initiative
    –> both do bad things
    –> Rowan is the white-hair guys
    –> Both men have relationships with the mother
    –> In both shows the mother was thought to be dead but we all know they will turn up alive

  • AlanHalliwell

    I think a major change to glee mid season completely move the show to New York I know that is alot of cast members gone but the best parts are in NY

  • Michael1

    2.7 for a repeat of “The Voice”? I thought NBC had written off the Thursday 8pm hour. Or is that only when “Parks & Recreation” is airing? It will be interesting to see how many of those viewers were watching the Redskins, but keep in mind that the first half-hour was during the pre-game show.
