On NBC, The Voice earned a 3.8 up 6 percent from last week's Monday season low 3.6 adults 18-49 rating. The Blacklist garnered a 3.0 up 3 percent from last week's 2.9  adults 18-49 rating.

On FOX, Bones matched last week’s 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. Sleepy Hollow scored a 2.5 , even with last week's 2.5 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were a bit too optimistic.

On CBS, How I Met Your Mother earned a 3.1 down 9 percent from last week's 3.4 adults 18-49.  2 Broke Girls scored a 2.7 up 4 percent from last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating.

- via NBC press note: In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 3.0/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.0/5; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.2/6.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.8/4; "Late Show," 0.4/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/5 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" (1.6/6 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (0.9/3).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.2/1).

- 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.

    The Cw is inflated? Jeez, finals will look bad!

  • Ryan T

    Weird HIMYM fell down .3 from last week especially with the Mother showing up AND lots of promos for Bryan Cranston. It’ll probably adjust up a tenth or two and it’s still DAMN good relative to the majority of shows.

  • Samunto

    Woohoo The Blacklist!

    DWTS has to be oldest skewing show on TV!

  • Ashley

    Ok,at least Sleepy Hollow did not go down. I’m very happy about this. Blacklist is doing awesome.

  • DougF

    Not a fan either show but I doubt CW is that inflated. No-one goes to the football games in Miami let alone wastes their Monday night watching them on TV.

  • Matt M.

    Ouch at DWTS. Still #1 in viewers for the night.

    Not bad for CASTLE, still incredibly steady.

    Good for NBC!

  • Tori

    Great for Blacklist even if that goes down a tenth in finals.

    Is Castle down from last week? I hope that gets an upward adjustment.

    ABC has got to move DWTS to the summer and only the summer. They are hanging on to it like they did with Millionaire.

  • grey

    Ouch, “Castle.” It might be adjusted up – I think “DWTS” ran over and “Castle’s” rating is higher. I’m hoping for a 2.0 please.

  • Sarah

    Bones :) And hopefully it gets adjusted up.

  • grey

    “Sleepy Hollow” was excellent. Just wanted to say that.

  • alexia

    Doubtful that the CW ratings are adjusted much, if at all. This is not Green Bay/Chicago from last week. Nobody cares about Miami/Tampa.

  • Me

    Meaning that B&TB may be even lower by the final ratings? Can’t wait to see the snoozefest! :)
    Tried to watch an encore one of these days. Couldn’t bare more than 10 minutes. No wonder why the show has tanked so hard. They should invest in quality shows like The Originals, Reign and Tomorrow Peeps..

  • Patricia

    Sleepy Hollow has stabilized yaaaay

  • Hardline_Pro

    I watch The Blacklist but I am not really impressed by it. I am just sticking around because I’m a huge James Spader fan. IDK how it gets such high numbers.

  • L

    HIMYM is the only CBS Monday comedy with a good 18-49 demo. Heck it’s even higher than Crazy Ones and 2 and a Half Men.

  • skyfi

    BatB can go to 0.4 in finals!

  • josh

    Yes once upon a time beat abc monday kewl

  • Avery

    @Me: lol at Reign being a “quality show”, please… its just as bad as BATB, probably even worse given the inaccuracies.

  • dantas

    Good morning, folks! How are you doing on this fine sunny day?

    Nothing on Mondays appears to have changed from last week as well.

    Beauty and the Beast and Hostages are still getting cancelled. Hostages will only air all of its 15 episodes if it stays above 1.0. Otherwise, it’ll get pulled off the air and aired later, either on a Saturday burn or on Summer.

    Hart Of Dixie is steady as hell, for 6 episodes in a row now. The Almighty Syndication Gods will bless it with another season. The number of episodes it’ll contain will be determined by the show’s ratings towards the end of this season.

    Mom is still safe – for now. 1.9 isn’t great but its near CBS’s average and not that much lower than Mike and Molly. It’ll get renewed if it stays above 1.8 the whole season. If it goes under 1.8 anytime this season, fans should consider it a goner.

    Brace yourselves, Spring is coming.
