via NBC press note:

  • 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.

    Girlfriend In A Coma wasn’t ever picked up by NBC.


    How would The Neighbors be doing better? Last Man Standing got a 1.4, The Neighbors got a 1.0. If The Neighbors was growing out of Last Man Standing I could see where you were coming from but seriously?

  • s0303

    grimm already down to 1.3 this early is not a good sign…i gave up on it last week…i’m cutting back on tv and this was one of the shows to go…i did not enjoy most of last season and realized this week i just don’t care about the show anymore…still want it to succeed though…

  • anna g

    Glad to see H50 go up. Ouch for Grimm and Dracula combo – they are going down fast. BB ticked upward as well.

  • chloe

    LMS and the neighbors is going to suffer next week against Bones in the 8pm hour

  • Dan S

    I can understand the numbers for Dracula but what is happening to Grimm ? Hopefully it’ll bounce back soon. It’ll be interesting to see how Fox does next Fri with Bones & Raising Hope.

  • Michael

    How low do you think Dracula can go before it’s cancelled?

  • Juan

    Damn that sucks I wish Grimm wouldn’t fall like that, I really hope it goes up next week

  • Carl

    I’d say Grimm still doesn’t have any shows airing on the same night that are compatible (Dracula should be but clearly isn’t). And the show is just left with its core fan base.

    Yesterday someone was talking about putting Hannibal in Dracula’s spot. I think Hannibal is somewhat overrated (partly because I think Hugh Dancy is miscast – instead of people talking about a complex character fans just treat him like a woobie and go “ooh, he loves doggies!!!”), but it might be more compatible with Grimm than this show is.

    TCD being rock steady (baby) on a tough night for the CW, and TV in general, makes me wonder if it might get a few more episodes, or a short third season.

  • Dom

    H50 will take Grimm the rest of the season. I predict Grimm @ 1.1 the rest of the season. H50 will stabilize at 1.4 for the season. Poor Poor Drac. NBC kills two shows for the price of 1. Grimm and Drac gone after this year.

  • mary

    Ouch Grimm. No idea what happened. Unfortunate, since last night’s episode was a return to form. Hopefully it will adjust up and do better next week.

  • Jami

    Now is the time for NBC to start adverting Revolution instead of wasting their money on endless promo’s of Dracula and Grimm.

  • Dom

    DRAC will show all episodes this season. I think all episodes are in the can already…..

  • Patrick Ausgewalht

    I think the reason Grimm going down was Thor: The Dark World. I would have been watching Grimmm, but I went to see Thor. It hurt Dracula too

  • HalCapone

    It appears a chunk of the already marginal number of viewers for “Last Man Standing” are changing the channel to the wretched corporate advertisement masquerading as a feel good reality show “Undercover Boss” for its last half hour and avoiding the unloved Neighbors. In the meantime, nearly everyone with a television is avoiding NBC. It’s not a matter of “if” ABC cancels The Neighbors but “when” since it is bringing down their entire night. Fridays should rightfully be ABC’s to lose with their tentpole success of Shark Tank. It would be interesting to see how the sharks would fare against the nerds, Sheldon and Leonard on Thursdays. Moving Shark Tank to Thursday would crater ABC’s Friday schedule and would undoubtedly lower Shark Tank current ratings but could (“could” cannot be emphasized enough)yield a marginal improvement over Wonderland and previous attempts in ABC’s notorious death slot. It would be a bold move that might be worth experimenting using a few special episodes of Shark.

    Agreed about Dracula, although it’ll probably end always being meant as a one season story, albeit an incredibly boring one. Grimm, however? The syndication factor is currently a Grimm’s best friend. It’ll get a fourth season.

  • Michael

    @Dom- Grimm is definitely getting a final fourth season as long it stays above a 1.0- remember, it’s almost in syndication. And at this point, it’s still tying or beating shows that air during the weekdays.

  • Dom

    Bored and Micheal– I totally forgot. The Syndication Gods! Good for Grim fans! I know I wished the Syndication gods would have helped Happy Endings! :(

  • Mathew kleinman

    Lol Dracula has the same demo and viewers welcome to the family had when it premiered

  • cindy

    Grimm has lost it’s edge, becoming boring. Dracula looked lame from the start.

  • Pepper

    Grimm will get a 4th season, guaranteed. The syndication gods demand it, and also a 1.3 is about on par with a lot of NBC’s other weekday shows. Grimm fans have nothing to worry about. Revolution is the drama in the most danger of being cancelled this year.
