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.


    I think Almost Human will get renewed… X Factor will prob not be back so they will need a lot of steady shows. I can see it going to Fridays and replacing RH/Enlisted next season

  • were123

    Almost Human will be renewed now :D

  • Spike

    not surprised, Intelligence pretty much sucked judging from the Pilot. nothing new at all

  • Laura

    Does anyone know what the episode order for AH was? 13?

  • Holly


    I guess the net will be looking closely at Intelligence’s DVR+3 and DVR+7 numbers to see if it has a future.

    With a 1.1, no they won’t. It’s dead. The only question is how long they let it go before pulling it.

  • SVU: Hannibal

    Wonder what happened to “America’s #1 New Show” soon to become America’s #3 new flop.

  • r0ckmypants

    I think we all expected a decline for Intelligence, but over 50%?! Wow.

  • Colin

    The Blacklist can now officially be called a hit.

  • Leon

    Almost Human is picking up steam! It kills me that a 3 week break is coming because that could hurt the current momentum!

    Sleepy Hollow steady is not a shock, hopefully the finale gets people watching! FOX really has something going on Mondays and hopefully they’re patient enough to let both shows really come into their own!

  • mbento

    Intelligence is done with this absolutely epic drop…

    Almost Human is still alive… without the voice smashing everything on his path the show must be with good chances of renewall now.

  • Chris

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the amazing realistic violence of teh blacklist went to far for some viewers.

    I felt like assassinations were awesome and realistic but I bet some of the Mancy’s out there stopped watching.

  • Seth

    Outstanding for Almost Human.

  • reallypeople

    Bravo to Sleepy Hollow remaining steady after the long break. And somehow Almost Human could take the Fringe/ Sarah Connor Friday spot next year. If I was FOX, I’d do it at a 2.0 demo level.

    And ouch at Blacklist. After heavy promotion and the HFPA “thanks for letting us hang” globe nomination… it fell that much? Wow. NBC has to be disappointed. (And yes, I’m sure someone will bring up the Voice, but it still should not have fell down 23%).

  • Guest

    I really like Almost Human, but a 3 week break coming up? Just when it seem like it had found an audience? Makes no sense to me. I don’t think Fox wants it to survive and it is the only show on FOX I watch.

  • ntinos

    Bring back H50 to Monday.
    He has better numbers from Intelligence

  • TimsDale4ever

    Good for MOM!!

  • Jeff (Canada)

    HIMYM highest rated show of the night! Glad to see it’s going out on top.

  • Mark

    Only think I can think about Intelligence is many people didn’t know about the night move. Personally I had no clue it was on Monday till I checked this website at around 4PM yesterday

  • xprophet

    I really enjoyed his work on Lost but Intelligence is not intelligent. Unfortunately for Mr. Holloway, it is, however, hopelessly lost.

  • r0ckmypants

    @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.”

    More likely it’s because this is the first episode to air without The Voice as a lead-in.

    But a 2.5 for a 10pm show, especially one on NBC, isn’t bad.
