via NBC press note:

In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:

  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.8/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.7/7; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.8/7.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.6/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.0/5.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.6/5 in metered-market households and a 0.5/3 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.5/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.3/5).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.6/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).

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.

  • John A

    Great for The Originals. I thought it would drop when CW decided to bump it last week.

  • TJ

    Good for Shield. I was pretty down on it a few weeks ago, but it looks like it has turned things around. I read the headline as “Supernatural hits new low” and got sad, haha.

  • gg

    expected poi to go up this week to see Carter be avenged. it’ll go down from here.

  • N

    I thought S.H.I.E.L.D would start collapsing after getting 2.2 a few weeks ago… well looks like it’ll be here for a while. It’s not bad but the show definitely needs to improve, especially since it’s by Joss Whedon and his team.

  • starship

    CW should just announce The Originals, Supernatural, and TVD renewals like now :D Those shows will be around as long as the actors are willing to sign on for.

    Crazy rating spike for Shield, guess it’s not as dead as it seemed.
    Nice to see Mindy up too, I hope the long spring hiatus doesn’t hurt it too much, as I hope both it and B99 get renewed.

  • Refrain


    The actual death count in the latest POI episode was quite low actually. Besides some of the people in the burning car, Reese didn’t kill anyone, he only incapacitated a dozen. Root didn’t kill the Russians, I believe she hit non critical areas.

    It was only really er Simmons and like 2 guys that died. Not that dark to be honest.

  • jules

    Gee, and 90% of POI viewers last week said they would never watch the show again, yet it rises. Hmmmm. I know Root has a lot of haters but she was hilarious in last night’s show, especially when she informed Lionel that he was named after a lion cub.
    His WTF look was priceless. I noticed a lot of daddy issues creeping in on last night’s show. Lionel’s dad and Lionel as a dad. More insight into Shaw and her issues, many which stem form her dad’s death. Most importantly we find out that Reese’s dad died when he was a boy. Good stuff. Elisa’s? What can I say? Nuff said.

  • TJ

    “CW should just announce The Originals, Supernatural, and TVD renewals like now”

    Arrow as well.

  • anon

    Go Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer! For a 49 yr old show, it did a great job ratings-wise.

    And from my personal experience, it was the adults in the family who actually turned to the broadcast. lol.

  • Drake

    Agents of shield , yes well deserved NCIS is what’s killing the show, AOS needs a new night. Otherwise if they keep this up, season 2 will be a lock.

    Supernatural stable as a rock

    Person of interest needs to die

  • Dan

    Beautiful send off the Carter in the opening scene of POI last night. Good background info on the main characters as well. Will be fun to see where it goes from here.

  • David Howell

    And it just gets worse for NBC as The Voice loses to Rudolph. Woah. Decent retention for CF at least, which bodes well for midseason when it doesn’t get the direct lead-in.

    Pretty good for POI too given the atypical competition. When was the last time the traditional three broadcast networks were above a 2 at 10?

  • RDavid

    The ratings rise in SHIELD shows the improvement in recent episodes, and how much NCIS impacts it (the fact that it is near the top in DVR #’s shows that as well).

  • fringegot5seasons

    Dat Rudolph winning the night.

  • askmelast79

    “Gee, and 90% of POI viewers last week said they would never watch the show again, yet it rises.”

    Let’s see what happens on the Dec. 17th episode. Then let’s talk.

  • Kissan

    Good job for SHIELD going up but it looks like it skewed much older this week. Good job for Rudolph as well being on all of these years and still get a 3.0 and trump AOS. I find SHIELD pretty boring so I switched to The Originals and damn is that show good! Can DWTS just die somewhere already? People are getting tired of it. Chicago Fire does not deserve that post Voice slot anymore. Even though it only lost 9 tenths (The Voice will get adjusted up) from The Voice, it should move to Wednesdays at 8 and put Believe there.

  • Matt M.

    Hopefully this lift is permanent for SHIELD. Maybe it will rise back up into the 8-9 million range.

  • sinataslimy

    good for the shield and supernatural

  • Refrain

    @Let’s see what happens on the Dec. 17th episode. Then let’s talk.

    Nothing will happen. I don’t know what you think will happen but this show will continue as normal and the ratings will reflect that. There won’t be a huge drop off in viewers, nor will there be any sign that the show is about to lose viewers either. It’ll be a typical 11-12 million, 1.9-2.1 episode and nothing more.

  • Steve

    Opening sequence of POI took my breath away. No dialogue, just Johnny Cash. Just when I thought I was over Carter’s death, the intro punched me in the guy again. Great episode!
