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.

    Comedies seem to need time to catch on, and this is nothing new. All in the Family was almost cancelled, Seinfeld was weak the first year, Big Bang Theory floated in the post 2.5 Men slot for two years before finding big audience. I think this year’s potential hit is Mom. It is getting really funny, especially Allison Janney character. CBS needs to shepherd this show’s development, maybe even consider giving it post TBBT slot.

  • LordClever

    Liked the first episode of Almost Human but thought number two was a bit trashy for an hour when the kids are still up. If you run shows where you can’t have the family in the room then of course ratings are going to slide as everyone will just go with less risky choices like the Voice or Dancing.

  • jenna

    Last comment of the day, I need to get to work.

    Any network show that hits a 2.2 at any time in its season is not a ‘bonafide hit’. Far from! Lol!

  • Avery

    @nicole: dont like dont watch idiot.

  • Joseph James-Brown

    You Sleepy Hollow haters are just dumb. And SH viewers use your heads…if there was no Katrina to cast a protective spell. There would be no Ichabob in the future. DUH!

    jenna! Bones is on at Fridays. It has not been cancelled! (roll eyes).

  • Helen

    See FOX, you shouldn’t have moved Bones.

  • It’s funny

    @Gabriel, @eridapo & @It’s funny

    The correct source for ratings, posted here or somewhere else, is The Nielsen Company. If you get them from someone who has paid for them, you can add a via [name].

    What can backfire is to assume those who post them here, get them from Berman. I know I don’t when I see them and pass them along here ;-)

    Yes, my only issue is with people copying/pasting information that someone else paid for. Not sure how the original information is obtained, or if it’s always formatted like that. Not sure it’s backfiring so much as a natural assumption that the info is coming from Berman’s site with the way he formats things. Glad other people have access to the data and post it here though.

  • Observer

    I wonder if jenna is an actor who auditioned for a part on SH and didn’t get it?

  • Colin

    Dont know what all the stupid talking about Sleepy Hollow is about? 2.2 is fine.

  • Sarah


    I agree that starting Almost Human in November wasn’t all that smart. They should have just started it in January with The Following, IMO.

  • Carl

    “Can they be a netowork that literally just has 3 day primetime schedule in 4 years?”

    They could always change their name to NBC…

  • psychic

    “Any network show that hits a 2.2 at any time in its season is not a ‘bonafide hit’. Far from! Lol!”
    IMHO, I’d call Castle a hit…

  • eridapo


    True the numbers come from Nielsen, but the format in Gabriel’s post is what Berman uses….. Berman takes what he gets from Nielsen (or his source) and puts it in a specific format, so at least give him credit….

  • r0ckmypants

    @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.”

    As Maria said, Berman is a secondhand source. Citing him is pointless, because that information is available from multiple sources; it is not his property. And that information is posted in a forum, not on an ad-supported website.

    And if Robert and/or Bill had a problem with it, I would think those comments would be deleted.

  • jenna

    Well @Mary, if I didn’t have a job, I won’t be able to post comments from my iPad in the comforts of my heated office now, would I?

  • eridapo

    @it’s funny

    It is Berman’s format because I seen Gabriel posts it other times when it contained errors that Mark had made and later corrected…

  • eridapo


    If people really need the halves, just asked Bill or Robert. They have posted the halves in the past when asked…

  • Nasir

    HoD should be renewed because it appears the CW is going a very dark, sci-fi direction and it would be good for the network to have a little variety in their programming. IMO

  • r0ckmypants

    @amy – “People were getting on SHIELD for getting a 2.2 a few weeks ago yet we’re supposed to think it’s good for SH? Come on.”

    Totally different cases. SHIELD debuted to a 4.7, so hitting a 2.2 is a loss of more than half its audience in just 6 episodes. Sleepy Hollow debuted much lower than SHIELD (with a 3.5), with much less promotion (and likely a much smaller budget), and has now lost the same amount of its audience in 8 additional airings that SHIELD lost just from its premiere to its second episode.

    Can people stop saying Bones will move back – it’s on Friday to stay!
