- 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.

    @Richard – “I’ll say this one last time – it is CRAZY and STUPID that Fox are carting Bones off to a Friday when it can hold its own and get 2.0s amidst such thick competition. Fox is a mess.”

    But Bones can’t be around forever, so Fox needs to try and launch a successful new series to air Monday-Thursday when Bones (and other aging series) departs. It’s a safer bet to move something like Bones, which clearly has a built-in and loyal audience that will follow it around the schedule, than it is to try launching a new series on Friday.

    3.0 for The Blacklist! Sleepy Hollow with a 2.5! A solid night for my new favorite shows.

    I can’t believe how steady HOD and BatB are on Mondays. Dancing really took a hit last night which is kind of strange, but at least Castle managed to get a 2.0 still. Castle has such a faithful audience.

    Yikes for Mom and Hostages. I thought both would rise this week. Mike and Molly didn’t hold up as well as I thought it would either. Without HIMYM next season, CBS Mondays are going to fall apart.

  • TBM

    I expect Blacklist to be moved to Thursdays next fall and I expect it will pull in decent numbers.

  • Joseph A

    Nice numbers for FOX & NBC but especially NBC that saw some gains over last week.

    Not sure what to say for CBS & ABC that both took significant hits in the demo, but then again I find myself watching NBC on Mondays, loving this dark side of James Spade (FYI , Spader was cast for the next Avengers movie )

  • Alex

    Sleepy Hollow and The Blacklist, the only two new shows I’m still watching, both amazing, glad they’re steady this week. Would feel better if SH was adjusted up a tick though.

  • Dan S

    With the exception of the 1st hr on CBS the rest of their Mon lineup is crumbling. It reminds me how NBC used to dominate on Thur & usually comes in 4th these days. With HIMYM ending & several comedies treading water they may need to cut back an hour on either Mon or Thur next season. It’ll be interesting to see how Almost Human on Fox does next week.

  • RayX

    if you want accuracy, go watch History Channel.

    not, it won’t. please use your eyes to read the red text below the box.

  • John

    The Blacklist is the only new show I like this season, glad to see it is doing so well. James Spader is a god among men.

  • eridapo

    Not surprise by the Castle numbers… It was just a boring episode. This episode follows a string of subpar episodes, and this season the engagement instead of spicing things up seems to have taken the heat of the Caskett relationship. Judging by Marlowe’s latest interviews the show will continue to produce episodes like the one last night with one or two dramatic ones in between (like the typical yearly 3xk that is coming up)

  • Nope

    hang in there CASTLE

  • Avery

    @RayX: I want well written shows, but I your brain is fine with crappy shows like Reign.

  • findmeoverhere

    Is there a way to see the CW numbers compared with the others in markets where they actually are? I know CW isn’t available in all markets so, is there a way to see the CW numbers compared with the others in markets where they actually are?

  • Samuel

    Very nice for 2BG, The Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow! CW really need to do something about their Monday nights! They are tied with their Friday nights in the demo, but Friday beats Monday night in overall viewers. That’s bad.

  • Skylar James

    Decent night for Fox!

    CW steady, but not good. And lol at people saying Reign is a well written show…

  • RyanCanada

    i dont get how HIMYM demo is so high i dont know anyone who watches it, and all my friends watch Mike and Molly, and were all the age between 20-30 so its like i expect there demo to be higher

  • dantas

    Fans worrying over Castle should stop. The show will only get cancelled if it decides to fall beneath 1.5 and stay under that for 4 or more episodes.

    Otherwise, it’ll be given another season.

  • Maya

    Reign is a terrible show, but I guess it has dumbass fans like RayX that think quality tv should be reserved for The History Channel, lol.

  • dantas

    And maybe not even then, Castle fans. ABC might give it a “Final Season” to brings some viewers back.


    Not looking good for CBS 9-11 at all

  • KJ

    The Voice still kicking everyone’s ass, me likes!

    DWTS not doing well in the demo, but still the #1 show in viewers, proving reality tv is where it’s at. But still, ABC should find a new reality show to replace it with soon
