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).

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.

    Why Sleepy Hollow is a hit? At 2.1?

    This show will be at CW levels by next fall.


    See the light fight didn’t exactly have treemendous ratings.

    Guess there isn’t a singing fatigue going on, either.

    AH ticks up & SH ticks down–Uh oh.

  • were123

    Ok, I got it. Troll alert, won’t even bother with you.

    If Sleepy Hollow follows The Following path, it will end the season at a 2.7

  • jenna

    Monday final ratings fall 2014: Sleepy Hollow adjusted down, matching CW’s show airing on that date.

  • Leon

    Stop with the breaks FOX ya killing sleepy hollow!

  • jenna

    The Following: 2.1 in the spring
    Weepy Hollow: 2.1 in the fall.

    You’re delusional

  • PurpleDrazi

    Yay for the Sing Off!

    Ouch for the CW.

  • John A

    The appeal of Sleepy Hollow is going down fast. Castle repeat will adjust down 3 or 4 tenths i imagine.

  • jenna (the real Jenna!)

    None of the posts on page 3 are mine. Some people are real losers. Where are the mods?!

  • Lee

    Sleepy Hollow is done. Mostly because Fox have messed with it far too much. It definitely won’t last beyond season 2. I can see it returning with a 1.8 in January. They have a good PR team that managed to pass the show off as a hit when its no where near hit status.

  • jamie

    Yikes at the ratings for that One Direction special. Not even One Direction can give the CW good ratings? I guess only “Arrow”, “The Originals”, and “Vampire Diaries” can.

  • Kissan

    Tomorrow’s Predictions:

    Agents Of SHIELD-2.4
    The Goldbergs-1.8
    Trophy Wife-1.4

    Fashion Show-3.5

    Biggest Loser-2.1
    The Voice-3.4
    Chicago Fire-2.2

    Country Awards-1.7

  • Samantha

    No it’s not Almost Human’s fault, it’s Fox’s. I almost forgot Sleepy Hollow was coming on yesterday until a friend reminded me. Where was the promotion and advertisement for Fox’s highest rated show? You’d think they would promote it days before it returned. And what’s with all the in between breaks? Ugh…another great show bites the dust! Well done Fox.

  • peelit

    SH was trending slowly down while Bones was on, so that pairing wasn’t propping SH up at all. My guess is, like so much on Fox, people are content to DVR. Too bad for AH. Its a fun but unspectacular time killer. I think the procedural Bones is perfect for Fridays, but it would pair a bit better with The Following than AH.

  • xwiseguyx

    ABC lineup was pre-empted in Chicago for The Bears Game… so I expect the numbers to go down.

  • Jon

    @dumont….I’m pretty sure two broke girls was just a repeat

  • Max Vrany

    @xwiseguyx, that’s exactly what the red text at the top of the page says.

  • AH FAN!

    Yay for AH going up! I knew it would and I knew more people would find it an exciting show. Although, last night’s episode was stale and a bit boring.

    It seems only when a love interest is about to brew do Americans seem to tune into a show. Every episode before last night’s was about the action and sci fi. And there was only small hints about the love life of the characters. But last night’s episode was the beginning of the inevitable character love interests which is about to take place.

    I understand love interests seem to keep TV viewers invested in the characters and the show, but last night’s episode was stale and boring, and I am a AH fan. I can tolerate some level of love interests in shows, but I would like to see more action and sci fi and less character love interest.

  • Jon

    @kissan….you really think the Victoria secret fashion show will get a 3.5 at 10 pm. If it gets a 1.8 I would be impressed.

  • cc

    Why is Monday’s listings still up and not tonight’s?

    Lmao at One Direction numbers. Their fanbase must’ve been in bed already.
