In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 3.2/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.0/5; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.2/6.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.5/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.2/4 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.6/6 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (0.9/3).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.6/4 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.

    Oh ok. Thank you :)

  • Darkstar

    Disapointed for AH, it was a good episode

  • DenverDean

    M&M did really well for being the lone new episode in the line-up – +0.8 from 2BG(R) and +0.7 ahead of Mom (R). Impressive.

  • senor chang

    Nice for The Sing-Off. Glad to see it back.

  • psychic

    I hope Sleepy Hollow at least makes it to 4-ish seasons. It’s definitely my favorite new show.

  • Ali

    I imagine Monday night is a bit worrisome for FOX, actually more than a bit.

  • jenna

    Remember when a series low for Sleepy Hollow used to be a 2.5? Hehe. Those are the long forgotten days. So long good ratings! Say hello to sub 2 ratings before the end of the season.

  • TVDude

    The Sing Off had a decent rating, but I think it could have been better had NBC did a better job with marketing. There wasn’t much “special” to it. If you look at the marketing for season one of The Sing Off, it made you feel like you were going to be missing something if you didn’t watch it. This year, they didn’t give you that feeling.

    Over on Fox, it looks like SH needs to be with Bones. They were doing really good together. Not quite as much now. The move hurt both shows, hopefully, they can recover.

  • jenna

    Four seasons?! For Weepy Hollow? Lmao! It won’t even complete its second season before it’s canceled.

  • psychic

    “Four seasons?! For Weepy Hollow? Lmao! It won’t even complete its second season before it’s canceled.”
    I did say “I hope”, not “I’ve confirmed it with rock-solid sources”.

  • zach36

    die almost human stupid program waste of time and killing bones

  • were123

    The Following did the same, 2.1s by the end of the season and then a 2.4 for the 14th epìsode and a 2.7 for the finale. I think Sleepy Hollow will see a similar uprising by the end

  • killerbee

    Sleepy Hollow would be doing better if we actually knew when the episodes would air. I love the show but FOX moves it around so much and skip weeks for new episodes.

  • Lurker

    I like Sleepy Hollow, but I don’t make excuses for its ratings, it is not all Almost Human’s fault, you know.

  • JulioC

    Almost human went up one tenth…even though it didn’t had a lot of competition. Sad…

  • Mon


    M&M did really well for being the lone new episode in the line-up – +0.8 from 2BG(R) and +0.7 ahead of Mom (R). Impressive.

    Really? That’s a lot of spinning you did there. The show did ok at most.

  • Kristen Dyrr

    I like Sleepy Hollow, but last night’s episode was my least favorite so far. It was pretty bad, so I see why it would drop. Conversely, last night’s Almost Human was my favorite episode so far this season, so I’m glad to see it notched back up a bit. Supposedly, the arc is supposed to begin after episode 8, similar to Fringe. Hopefully, that will mean good news.

  • Duarte

    Sleepy Hollow, how bad .

  • jenna

    Weepy hollow will be lucky to air 3 episodes on season 2.

    1.0 for next year’s premiere, no one is going to remember this show after almost a year off.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Isn’t Sing Off season 4 premiered last night?Why TVBTN are comparing with series premiere numbers?
