In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:

Coming Soon

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.

    I’m surprised The Blacklist repeats so poorly.

  • OutOfSync

    Good showing by M&M. Top show of the night.

  • Billiam

    Almost Human repeat didn’t do as badly as I would have expected.

  • Dr. L

    The CW was preempted.

  • Thomas

    Didn’t know POI was on last night.

    An off-scheduled POI repeat beats both regularly scheduled Blacklist and Castle repeats. :)

  • John A

    Yeah everything repeated well for the time of year. Especally CW. When was the last time you saw a 0.5 on monday for them.

  • AbeCardinal

    Rock on PoI!

  • John A

    CW Preempted that makes sense.

  • Samunto

    I had expected The Blacklist to repeat better than that. But it’s still on par with POI and Castle.

  • Kissan

    Well at least NBC is repeating The Blacklist but it was the day before New Years Eve so what did they expect? Also it had repeat competition from POI and Breaking Bad marathon so…Oh yeah, HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE EVERYBODY!!!!

  • Networkman

    Almost Human repeats better than Sleepy Hollow. FOX really needs to nurture this show. It is a show that is capable of having full 22 episode seasons and repeating fairly well.

    Congrats to the CBS comedies. Their repeat performances brings in better ratings than NBC Thursday comedies in original new episodes. Also Person of Interest did fairly well on a new night.

  • grey

    If “Castle” has to “loose” to something I prefer it be to “POI” than “The Black List” – repeats or first runs.
    Next week the “real” ratings wars resume. Back to the trenches people.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go POI!

    Last night, I was toggling between bowl games and the Breaking Bad marathon.

  • CrimTV

    Hollywood Game Night repeated better than the original last Monday!!

  • The 47th

    That’s really good for Mike and Molly.

  • Joseph

    Univision won the night among broadcast networks in the 18-3 demographic.

    Also, I suspect that when the cable numbers come in, a doubleheader of No-Name Bowls on ESPN will likely win the night among all cable and broadcast nets in key demos and probably overall viewers as well.

    Tonight (December 31st), look for ESPN’s latest No-Name Bowl to blow away all cable and broadcast network competition in prime-time because it will feature Texas A & M, whose quarterback Johnny (“Johnny Football”) Manzell may be playing in his last collegiate game (he is expected to forego the rest of his college eligibility and turn pro).

    However, the 11:30 P.M.-12:30 A.M. (Eastern/Pacific) portion of Ryan Seacrest’s “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” will likely attract more viewers than any prime-time program on either broadcast or cable.

  • Joseph

    Typo: I meant to write that Univision won among broadcast nets in the 18-34 demographic.

  • Anon

    What pre-empted the CW? There was no NFL last night.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    If “Castle” has to “loose” to something I prefer it be to “POI” than “The Black List”

    loose = opposite of tight
    lose = opposite of win

  • DenverDean

    NBC has been rather bad at not repeating its “procedurals” like SVU, TB and CF. It’s a real missed opportunity. They should learn from CBS that running those shows in the same time slot almost every week opens the door to new potential viewers. (For example, POI viewers might catch CF when both in repeats, Castle viewers TB, etc.) I’m sure most NBC viewers had no idea that TB was even on considering that NBC has not been airing it in its timeslot (new or repeat for a month).
