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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Chicago Fire will still be the number program scripted or non-scripted on NBC for the entire week…

  • Ron

    Killer women was terrible!

  • mbento

    They will say that Killer Women is just a mini series so its not a problem… only eight episodes like The Assets.

    Nice numbers for Intelligence but once again not big in the demo… only old people watch this and ncis… lol

  • Chris J

    *number 1

  • Greg

    Killer Women didn’t even had a shot. Intelligence did okay, but I doubt it hits more than a 2.0 next week.

    That’s surprisingly high for Dads. It’d be interesting if it suddently turned the corner this year.

  • Mathew

    I dvrd killer women can anyone tell me if it was good

  • Hello

    I predict a 1.5 demo for “Intelligence” on Monday.

  • Hardline_Pro

    Glad Person of Interest is steady.

  • Lem

    If it’s cbs and it scores roughly what ncis la gets you know it’s a Keeper.

  • jT

    new girl will bounce back

  • Tal

    Agents of SHIELD didn’t tie low. The last ep (Dec 10) was a 2.0 but I’m perhaps that was a deliberate misrepresentation designed to get traffic to the site.

  • Dante

    The most hysterical thing- this dreadful fireman procedural, which may adjust down to a 1.8 in finals is getting a spin-off that premieres tonight and that’s gonna do Ironside numbers.

    Oh, NBC. You slay me. LOL

  • Phoenix

    Wondering what PLL and Ravenswood did..

  • k:Alex

    Chicago Fire had a boring episode, it was more Chicago ER (would be a great spin-off).

    Good for The Goldbergs!

  • RJC

    Not bad for Chicago Fire, especially considering it grew from its lead-in, but NBC is probably a bit disappointed that hasn’t really shown significant growth from being placed after The Voice during the entire fall.

  • Kitsune


    That 2.0 adjusted up to a 2.1

  • r0ckmypants

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

    Not really. Its series premiere was more than half a ratings point below the fifth season premiere of NCIS: LA in that same slot three months ago. It’s better than how CBS dramas typically debut at midseason, but it also had the network’s best lead-in and will be switching timeslots next week. So no, it didn’t knock it out of the park. “Decent” is definitely the best way to describe it.

    nbc only has one hit show the voice so why does abc gets all of the bad press

  • Edward

    Chicago Fire did pretty well! It built on its reality show lead-in while POI dropped from its drama lead in. The half hours for POI and CF are identical: 2.0/1.9 so the numbers are pretty close. Also, it looks like CF grew in total viewers over the hour. Solid numbers for both shows.

    Can we just ban @Dante from here?
