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.

    @Ed B – “BATB was awesome last night. All you haters don’t even start.”

    Who’s going to start with you? Looking at those ratings, no one else watches it.

  • Deborah

    FOX was hanging in there with Bones/The Following last year and Bones/Sleepy Hollow so far this year. Almost Human is dragging Sleepy Hollow with it which annoys me. You know the old song “You don’t know what you’ve got til its gone”

    I know they have to find a replacement for Bones sooner rather than later but to do it in November made no sense whatsoever!!

    @eridapo – “The list comes from Marc Berman, and all you are doing is taking what he posts and pasting it here… That is not cool…”

    Marc Berman doesn’t have a copyright on ratings numbers. He’s also just posting numbers that he gets from another source.

  • Trice

    The first six epsoide was about Abbie centric the rating was above 2.5 .
    Any thing dealing with Incabod and Katrina seam to be the death of this show
    Even the advertising company don’t care for katrina .I am one of the few who
    love the show as a hold ,.I Iove that Incabod have a son .I am hoping
    Katrina put a spell on the baby and sent the boy too future and that the child
    Is grown now to be Abbie love interest .

  • rob60990

    DWTS hit a 1.7 a couple weeks ago so a 2.0 is not its series low.

  • It’s funny



    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…

    Right, that’s not cool. You’re not entitled to that information and you don’t cull it yourself, so you should at least attribute the source.

  • Sam


    Nailed it. As soon as I saw it was a Katrina&Ichabod-heavy episode, I knew this would happen. It sucked.

  • Guardian Owl

    Congrats Fox, you managed to torpedo Bones and Sleepy Hollow.

  • jenna

    I wasn’t expecting Sleepy Hollow to hit the sub 2 until it’s second second, ie it’s final season but now I might have to reconsider. LOL!

    Since it is currently on a 2 week hiatus, I’m guessing the next episode will do a 1.9. Lmao!!!?

  • Edward

    Hello, people!

    CBS’s numbers are INFLATED. Given that, I wonder where HIMYM will land.

    Great numbers for Blacklist.

  • esruckcype

    Not good for Almost Human. I like the show a lot, but that’s another sizeable drop. I wonder if they got some more schedule-fu planned or what.

    Blacklist is here to stay.

  • Ryan

    I knew Moms number were too good to be true! Hoping for only a tenth of an adjustment

  • CrimeDawg18

    Yea for The Blacklist!!!! Hey at least NBC gets good numbers on Sunday and Monday nights.

  • Ryan T

    First time HIMYM gets below 3.0 rating this season.
    Hopefully it adjusts up at least within reason.
    The all-rhyming episode was silly and pretty fun.
    CBS will miss this show when all is said and done.

  • Liz

    Laughing at the immaturity of some people on here. Sleepy Hollow is a bonafide hit with a cult following; not all shows are about stratospheric numbers. Shows with far less viewers have lasted 5+ years. I came on here to see what goes on. Clearly nothing but juvenile taunting.This Jenna person especially needs a vacation or a laxative. Oy oy and Adios peeps

  • ReallyTired

    Blacklist story points. Good (bloody) episode. But NOT original ……

    1. Barefoot hero? Right out of ‘Die Hard’. Everything but the broken glass (so far)
    2. Ripping of an episode of ’24’ in it’s prime.

  • tvwatcher

    Blacklist was so good last night and it ended in a cliffie. Hopefully it goes UP next week when the cliffhanger is resolved.

  • Carl

    Almost Human feels really dated – it’s like some sort of late ’80s pilot transplanted to 2013. Sadly all the time in limbo didn’t do anything to make JJ Abrams less of a hack.

    I think Sleepy Hollow will still be OK, and I think it will adjust up too. I’m just not sure why, when they got such praise for having a cast focus that isn’t like a million other shows, they decided to delve headlong into characters who are exactly like a million other shows. And often, not very good shows.

  • farceattack

    hey could anyone tell me if tonight’s castle was the last of the year?

  • eridapo


    It doesn’t matter. You still need to cite the information. I’m sure Bill and Robert would agree since they have also asked that you cite the ratings info. if you use it other sites….. When you do what Gabriel did, you are costing the site page views (Money) so the least you can do is give them props.
