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," 3.0/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.6/7; 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," 0.6/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.4/5 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" (1.5/5 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" (0.5/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.4/3).

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.

    Alright, Chicago MISFire- the bloom is now off of the rose. You NO longer have The Voice as a lead-in when you return from hiatus. You will be airing right after two (I can guarantee) lackluster comedies which will give Sean Saves The World and The Michael J. Fox show a run for their money, ratings-wise.

    So, no Voice, competing dramas on ABC and CBS (CBS being of course, the epic Person Of Interest), and no lead-in. These nice (nothing spectacular by the way and a complete waste of The Voice lead-in) numbers you have been enjoying this fall have come to an end. You couldn’t even beat a show that was basically models walking on a runway. LMFAO.

    You can expect the show to pull the usual NBC (non-The Blacklist) numbers and the show struggles to even maintain the status quo 1.5 demo rating. It is going to be brutal.

    And get ready Chicago PD- your days are coming soon. Ironside won’t look so horrid.

    My prediction… Chicago MISFire and Chicago PD will not survive the season.

  • fourat sakka

    no SHIELD !!!that is bad !!

  • al

    Dante do you need help?

  • John A

    Lmao at Shield. It fell to a 1.9 at half hour. Hope it adjusts down.

  • danny94

    Great Ratings for Chicago Fire, Glad to the Goldberg’s is up, it really has a loyal audience

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    I liked that fashion show last night of them modeling postage stamps!

    Go NCIS!

  • casey

    bad numbers for A.O.S., I really thought it would rebound nicely.
    I guess it needs NCIS repeats to preform over a 2.5

  • Sergio

    what happened everything went down a lot at 8…

  • The Cool Max

    Great for Goldbergs!!

  • John

    Hahahahaha YES! Agents of SHIELD blows. It needs to be put down like an animal no one cares to see limp around anymore.

  • al

    Sheild will be canceled mos likely, what a pity.

    I think DWTS results show could be coming back soon

  • Edward

    Season high in viewers for Chicago Fire! Great episode last night.

  • James

    Shield just keeps on falling.

  • Seth

    Exquisite for The Goldbergs.

  • grey

    When given a choice most guys (and some gals) are going to look at half naked women on parade. So no suprise about “Vicky’s Secrete.” As for the rest of the new programing that was low, Dec is always tough especially for ABC.

  • ed

    Dante, shut up!

  • Pat


    Victoria’s Secter Fashion Show is huge man. did you honestly expect Chicago Fire to get higher than it??

  • jenna

    AoS is definitely the biggest bomb on the season. No question.

  • Crystal

    I tried watching the Victoria Secret show but had to change the channel after the first song because I don’t really get why Taylor Swift was there. Great numbers for the show though.

    I know The Voice results was pushed back to 9. I know many people speculate so its not up against the original NCIS and NBC can be sure it wins its slot. Whether that is true or not is another thing. NCIS doesn’t seem as strong to me this season. It doesn’t seem to hit 3.0 mark has much as it used too.

    I’m also a tad curious if NCIS: Los Angeles would be a up a point or two if it weren’t competing against The Voice? I never really payed attention to its ratings before so i don’t know how it did in previous seasons.

    How is a 2.2 bad for Chicago Fire?
