In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:


  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 3.1/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.0/5; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.5/7.


  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 1.0/5; "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 1.5/5 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" (1.8/6 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.0/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.7/5 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.2/2).


  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 1.0/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/4 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with 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.

    I think “DWTS” ran over by a minute. We’ll see in the finals.

  • Vasco Silva

    HOD steady as a rock

  • alexia

    Looks like 2.5 is Sleepy Hollow’s floor. Not bad, especially considering that last night’s MNF was really good. Glad it didn’t slide more considering that it was probably the first real dud of an episode. Still, hopefully it adjusts up.

  • AlanHalliwell

    Knew Almost Human would slide.
    Cant understand Why Mom Is so low It should be swapped with the Millers
    CBS saved 2bg

  • RJ

    I said 2.2 for Almost Human, so wahoo.

  • Sarah

    OMG Almost Human! And that’s without The Voice live.

  • Matt

    lol at Almost Human

    Good for HIMYM, 2BG– wish Mom was higher, it is really funny!

  • Tom

    Goodbye ‘Almost Human’. JJ Abrams needs to rest a little before brings another tv show and kiss the flop again.

  • jupiter3765

    good for castle

  • Seth

    Outstanding for Sleepy Hollow. Almost Human will be in the 1’s next week for sure.

  • Missy

    That is so not good for Almost Human.
    Dropping almost a point overnight and The Voice was a recap…

    And it didn’t do any better than Bones was doing that night.

  • k:Alex

    Bad for Almost Human.
    And Voice at 10 is a bad idea, why are they doing those kind of things.
    Air a episode of another show there for 1 time too boost the ratings.

  • HalCapone

    Surprised Almost Human even got that; thought it would have been in high 1’s

  • DC

    Nice to see Bones got thrown under the bus for nothing :(

  • Samuel

    Wow, that’s embarrassing for Almost Human and Fox! Very nice for Sleepy Hollow though, growing from your lead-in is never easy, but up against the beginning of The Voice… Fox has got to be happy for it!

    I never knew Hostages series low was a 1.0. I always thought it did worse than that.

    Beauty and The Beast, while steady, is on it’s way to certain cancellation!

  • Chris

    HIMYM is a beast!! CBS should have kept on We are Men

  • jupiter3765

    i wonder how david blane and agents of shield will do this week

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go Sleepy Hollow! Didn’t Bones pull a 2.2 or better in that AH slot earlier this season?

    Good for Castle with no Blacklist against it, pending adjustment or course.

    Ouch for Hostages!

    Is The Voice getting hoarse?

  • were123

    Not great for Almost Human, but considering how FOX is doing, it can fall a little bit, but I hope it stays at 2s

  • s0303

    cw sure is steady on mondays…bad, but steady…

    too bad about almost human…i thought it was okay sunday, but nothing i had to watch…already down close to what bones was getting…fox is having one bad year…at least sleepy hollow is still doing pretty good…
