In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:


  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.9/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/6; 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 1.4/5 in metered-market households and a 0.5/3 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" (1.2/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).


  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/4 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 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.

    Goodbye Intelligence.

  • Vasco Silva

    HOD UP! Woohoo!

  • ragincajun

    CBS solved its Tuesday deathslot with PoI only to exchange it for a Monday deathslot. :(

    I guess the net will be looking closely at Intelligence’s DVR+3 and DVR+7 numbers to see if it has a future. They were simply asking too much of a new series in this tough timeslot. If Intelligence does show a spark in the DVR numbers, CBS should consider a change after the Olympics. Again, I think The Mentalist would work on Monday, especially now that it has had a creative resurgence since the conclusion of the Red John storyline. Intelligence could then move to Sunday at 9:00 between TAR and TGW.

  • Hunter

    Almost Human is hanging in there. I think Fox really wants to give all of their shows a fair chance at finding an audience, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it squeaks by for a Season 2.

  • Reven8er

    Season high for Mom, right?

    Still awesome for The Blacklist

  • Suck Lore

    Intelligence is a god awful show. I hope to see “The Mentalist” or even H5O on Mondays.

  • luka

    wow!! Great for Almost Human! :D

  • psychic

    WOW. Intelligence. Looks like we can be hopeful to finally get an explanation of where Ruby off OUAT has been for like a year and a half.
    Sleepy Hollow was on? I didn’t even know. I thought it wasn’t returning until next week.

  • Mark

    Wow I expected a fall in rating for Intelligence but not that much

    Beyond that BatB really lost a huge chunk of Heart of Dixie’s audience. Did HOD even rate that high before Xmas?

  • chrono

    Intelligence is dead!

  • HalCapone

    The 10pm CBS death slot claims another victim.

  • Ryan T

    LOL at HIMYM being the ONLY show on Monday to crack a 3. Slaptacular!

  • Jared

    CBS should really move an established series like The Good Wife or The Mentalist to Mondays at 10pm.

  • E

    Shocking how bad the numbers fell for Blacklist. I think the long hiatus during the holiday’s hurts the show and the continuity with the viewers. They should start the week after New Years.

  • casey

    Ratings all over the place…
    CBS will have difficulty finding a spot on Monday’s given the success of both The Blacklist and Castle…that being said what a drop for the Blacklist. Hopefully it can rebound next week.
    CBS Comedies at least had a healthy showing…moving on up!!!
    Is it just me or is it rare that all 04 networks are tied for adults…especially on a Monday night!

  • Dan

    As steady as Hawaii Five-0 is doing on Friday, I am betting CBS regrets moving it from that timeslot. Should’ve picked up that Beverly Hills Cop to series. It’d at least be pretty compatible with the comedies.

  • Nick.

    …and there I thought Almost Human was dead after hitting 1.5 last year. Expecting a full season now, although beyond that I’m not sure.

  • Randy


    Mom premiered to a 2.5, so no it is not a high. If you are talking about viewers, viewers do not count.

  • Simon

    The Blacklist still held pretty decently without The Voice lead-in, we’ll see how it goes the next two weeks. Ouch at Intelligence!

    Sleepy Hollow held and Almost Human went up, higest rating since 1×02

  • CrimTV

    The Blacklist did great considering it’s lead in secured half the rating as usual.
