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.

    Even The Voice falls from 3.4 at 10:00 to 3.1 at 10:39. Renew The Blacklist already NBC!

  • It’s funny

    I sincerely hope ABC doesn’t publish a press release for DWTS and Castle. They’re probably going to adjust like crazy. :S

  • tvd

    lol at the cw please cancel b&tb and hart of dixie. wastes of time and flops. are these seasons just 13 eps long? isnt star crossed and the 100 going to air at those times?

  • Luna

    Low but steady as a rock, still impressed by how HOD has been doing this season.

  • Aiden_Mathis

    Almost Human is already dead. I was going to watch it. Not anymore.

    2 Broke Girls is so solid. It should move to thursdays 8:30. I mean, it would make good use of TBBT lead in. It would rate a 3.3 or more..

    When will BATB fall more? Can’t wait for it to reach a 0.1

  • Jessica

    2.2? Wasn’t expecting to be this low.. FOX must be dissapointed & the bad thing is next week Almost Human might fall more, ’cause The Voice will be live at 8pm.. Hope they won’t drop too much! But great for Sleepy Hollow so happy for them!

  • ludotv

    Yikes Almost Human… I was not expecting that… Such two weird data points so far, it is hard to guess what will happen next…

  • Chris

    Almost Human……..well this sucks.

  • Leoben Conoy

    God, so many people on this site are so pathetic.

    Literally all you do is sh*t all over any new show.

  • Ashley

    NOOOOOOOO to Almost Human. Love that show. Great pairing with SH.

  • Samunto

    What was the point of NBC airing recap at 8? The 10pm episodes of The Voice have been rating lowly.

    Sharp drop for Almost Human. Similar ratings to Bones though this one probably skews younger.

  • Ryan

    Mom is Flat with last week so how is it hitting a low? Everything on CBS was flat

  • DrainBamage

    Thats bad for Almost Human barely making Bones numbers. Typical, every new show in the last three years that I have an had interest in dies quick. In fact all the network shows that I watch regularly are 3 seasons in or more.

  • Dan

    Almost Human… kaput already!

  • Scandalicious

    Cw solid as usual albeit at low levels. CBS was solid too. I am glad The Voice is coming back to earth. I missed not seeing The Blacklist last night! It looks like Sleepy Hollow will be the only hit for Fox this season. I really enjoyed Almost Human but that steep drop does not bode well. I am thinking it will be at a 1.9 next week, maybe a 2.0. I bet DWTS and Castle will both settle around the 2.0 area after the inflation is taken out – which is still up for DWTS so that is positive.

  • Me

    Those CW flops just won’t sink any deeper. :(

  • Samuel

    Beauty and The Beast is haemorrhaging viewers. How long can it keep pulling a 0.3 out of only 700k viewers?

  • Skylar James

    Not looking good for Almost Human, next week it’ll be below a 2.0

    CW steady as a rock on Mondays.

  • N

    Ouch, I really didn’t expect Almost Human to fall like this. It’s weird, since the pilot moves around fast which should grip viewers (it did for me), and the special effects is surprisingly good for television.

  • Seth

    Will the Voice hit the 2’s before the end of this cycle? I say YES!
