In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 3.2/9; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 1.9/5; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.4/6.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.4/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/4.
  • 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" (1.7/6 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" (0.6/4 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.


    Almost Human is fine for nw at these numbers, really. Nothing to worry about if this stabilizes. Which it won’t. Its Sci Fi.

    So, its over.

    In other news, the Voice is not a Juggernaut at a 3.3. Seriously. Its not. X Factor gets a 1.7, which is less than half that rating. Still, not too much of a difference these days.

    Also, Sleepy Hollow is still performing nicely. For a show deep into its season with only a few episodes left, getting a 2.2, the rating most thought the show would PREMIERE with isn’t half bad. Expect this to end with a 2.1 – 2.4, though come back to a 2.6 – 2.7 in the FALL. Hit. Woot.

    Also, SYTYCD has 1.2’s this Summer. X Factor at a 1.7 will not get it cancelled. Because, FYI, SYTYCD was renewed for another season.

    Additionally, 2 Broke Girls is a hit.

    BATB was awesome last night. All you haters don’t even start.

    What a surprise.

    The more the show focuses on dull Katrina and dull Ichabod, and their great love of the ages, and the less it focuses on the characters who are actually interesting, the more the ratings fall.

  • Cyrax86

    Well Almost Human is about to enter the long list of Fox drama failures. Sleepy Hollow is already renewed but that drop is not good at all.

  • Ronak

    Glad Castle ticked up again after last week’s football pre-emptions brought it down. The winter finale was a wonderful, charming episode.

    Blacklist continues to hold steady.

    SH and AH numbers don’t look good for Fox. I’m not surprised by AH going sub-2. It is a poor show.

  • k:Alex

    By far the best episode of The Blacklist.
    Those ratings are good enough, but could be higher next week.

  • Deo

    Castle will adjust down (DWTS had an overun), but at least I suppose it will still be up from last week?

  • rob60990

    Sleepy Hollow will be pulling 1.5s next year lmao.

  • Rick

    Ed, it’s not hating when there are less than 1 million people watching it. The show’s bearchow. That’s not hate, that’s fact.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Come on HIMYM! You’re going to lose your Bronze Medal Comedy rank to the Simpsons! Adjust up!

  • mando

    NBC should move BL to Thursday where GA doen’t seem to last long.
    BL will save Thursday night next season!!

  • Sam

    Bye almost human, sleepy hollow is nearing death too. Fox really can’t keep it’s new shows from falling.

  • Leoben Conoy


    why dont you just shut your &@#^@($ mouth?

  • Jon Snow

    Almost Human ;(

  • grey

    “Castle” may be adjusted down since “DWTS” ran over and currently has a 0.1 higher rating. :(

  • hmm

    @ Deo

    DWTS ended early for me…

  • Aria

    I’m more worried about Almost Human. Fox already renewed Sleepy Hollow they might be dropped but still, doing fine. Almost Human, on the other hand, is not doing fine. It’s Almost Human’s third episode and they already saw 1.9 (and it’s a sci-fi show) so I’m worried that it might drop more. It’s a really good show but I guess America doesn’t agree with me.

  • eridapo


    Can you cite where your getting your numbers from…. The list comes from Marc Berman, and all you are doing is taking what he posts and pasting it here… That is not cool…

  • JR

    Fox better hope all the young dudes in the demo are tuning in to AH. Of course SH didn’t pick a great time to continue its slide either.

  • The Cool Max

    Great for the CBS lineup! Happy for 2BG and Mom!
