In Late-Night Metered-Market Household Averages for Saturday night:

  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.9/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.5/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.9/5.
  • 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," 0.7/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.2/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 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" (1.2/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.6/4 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).
  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.9/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/3 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.

    Agents of SHIELD is creatively bankrupt.

    Killed Women

  • josh

    dads was hilarious

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Wow, Dads tied B99?And Mindy is a goner right?

  • John A

    Chicago Fire did well without The Voice lead in. Looks like New Girl hit a series low.

  • Bonesfan

    “Decent”? That was more than decent. Intelligence knocked it out of the park.

  • René

    Trophy Wife :(

    Bye Bye Killer Woman.

  • Jules

    omg, I didn’t have idea Killer Women would be that bad

  • Dante

    ….CHICAGO MISfire.

    Told ya guys. No Voice + POI being new + cable offerings will equal sub 2’s. The slide will continue next week.

  • John A

    2.5 for Intellegence not great. Real test will be next monday at 10pm.

  • Vanessa

    I think New Girl may have suffered a bit because of Intelligence. Hopefully it’ll go up next week.

  • Hello

    Decent for “Agents of SHIELD”.

  • Jules

    But what was ABC thinking with that awful lead-in for KW.

  • Kitsune

    ABC is not having a good year at all. :\

    Good start for Intelligence, hope it holds on Monday, though The Blacklist competition worries me.

    Chicago Fire, meh. Been waiting for it to slide for a while back down to reality. Good ratings though without The Voice.

    Worried for Brooklyn Nine-Nine though the Super Bowl might help it out some.

  • Seth

    Outstanding for Dads.

  • John A

    @Dante Yeah CF did bad only growing from its lead in. POI of course dropped.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Intelligence is dead too.Not good reviews,and being against The Blacklist and Castle next week, I doubt it if the show will sustain its audience.I’m impressed how The Goldbergs are holding up well in tuesdays.

  • Blanket-Man

    Not bad for SHIELD, I guess. Last night’s was by far the best ep of the series (still left with more questions than answers, but that’s not a bad thing), so hopefully it improves next week with some much-needed positive word-of-mouth.
