  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/4 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" (1.5/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.3/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.6/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.


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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

    That drop for Grimm ain’t looking good.

    When will ABC move Shark Tank permanently to Thursdays at 8? I think it’s only a matter of time.

  • Oliver

    The total viewers for Hawaii Five-O must be wrong.

  • queeneeuq

    People are silly. The Neighbors is the only ABC comedy that has gained viewers in the pasr month. :)

  • connerc

    I assume that’s a typo on H5O’s viewers? 1.86?

  • heather

    Only 1 mil viewers for H50, seems like the site is trying to turn people against the show or cause more hit’s other sights show H50 at 9.38 MILLION VIEWERS, so over the crap that this sight post.

  • Mon

    Undercover Boss’ half hours were 1.6/2.1. Nice jump!

    What’s happening to Grimm? Unpopular storyline perhaps?

  • Lyla

    Too many typos….

  • Hi

    I LOVE Nikita, but I think Will be like 0.800-1.10 and 0.2-0.3
    Maybe 0.700 and 0.2


    Those viewers can’t be right for 5-0?

    1.86? Down from 9.6? – hopefully the site will correct this

    It’s up in the demo – way to go 5-0 !

  • LIL

    Yes, total viewers for H50 was 9.86 not 1.86

  • Mike 1

    UB last half hour got a 2.1 demo , so H50 dropped a 0.6 demo after it. CBS should flip BB and H50.

    John , Grimm got a 1 demo lead in while H50 got a 2.1 , with a 0.1 demo difference, Grimm is the stronger show. No sure why Dateline was so weak this week.

  • skyfi

    I’m sorry to say, but Grimm is near to series low. The 4th season will be the last one.

  • HalCapone

    Wow, add Fridays to Wednesdays and Thursdays for NBC disaster ratings nights or maybe it’s just easy to say all nights not showing The Voice or Sunday Night Football. Grimm just debuted and already it is sliding; must be that Americas Top Model competition or something equally scary.

  • Mathew

    Is girlfriend in a coma premiering Wednesday on NBC?

  • DM

    @Heather or it could have been a typo…

  • Mon

    UB last half hour got a 2.1 demo , so H50 dropped a 0.6 demo after it. CBS should flip BB and H50.

    BB would have been doing worse. It’s not exactly a great 18-49 player. If it was an option, CBS would have done it by now.

  • william

    if the neighbors was paired up with any show other than last man standing, and/or it was on a different night it probably wouldn’t be doing this bad. i still haven’t seen any advertisements for the neighbors. i’m a fan and i didn’t even know when the season was going to start. i just caught the first episode 5mins in by chance.

  • diana

    H50 has not made the night stronger as CBS hoped. Last year , same days, CSI NY.

    Episode 09-07: Friday, 11/09/12
    1.4 in the demo with 9.72 million .

    Episode 09-06: Friday, 11/02/12

    1.5 in the demo with 10.05 million .

  • Bored Now

    CW Monday and Fridays are stable if nothing else. Not sure that will be enough to save Carrie Diaries or Beauty and the Beast if midweek stays strong but it can’t hurt their chances, I guess.

    Grimm needs to stop dropping. Not even sure why people are tuning out. The show started out really strong this year. Certainly stronger than last year anyway.

  • Dahne

    Yikes, here’s hoping for an upward adjustment for Grimm. I don’t think Dracula is done sliding at this point. I’m not one to root for a show’s cancellation but if it goes much lower a mercy killing will be in order. Plus then I won’t have to do the Best Scene Polls anymore. :-P Here’s hoping that Crossbiones has more success in the time slot.
