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.

    Welcome to FOX’s scheduling department. Nothing ever makes sense. Ever. Even Reilly, himself, admitted that at the TCAs.

  • Tom

    That is a HUGE viewership gain for Mom!!! Series high! Unfortunately it doesn’t show in the demo.

  • Adien

    All round disappointed with the ratings for Intelligence but i am glad that Mom is perking up! My favourite new comedy…

    Any chance that Intelligence get adjusted up:)) By 0.5

  • Victoria

    AND BATB has the WORST numbers of the entire primetime. Way to go! This way the show will end no matter what!

  • cabose369

    Yay for Almost Human going up again! Love that show! Good for Blacklist and Castle as well.

    As for Intelligence….. FAIL.

  • Edward

    NBC is doing backflips over those Blacklist numbers. First in demos and total viewers at 10pm. It will most likely be the #1 scripted show at 10pm this week.

  • RESI

    Almost Human if it can pull it off again next week it will be renewed. 2.0 is really good.

    Intelligence! I knew it would fall but from 2.3 to 1.1 that’s awful. Its a really good show (but to be fair, I watch anything these days) and it’s not really as much of a Chuck copy as I excepted it to be.

  • Nick.

    The Blacklist doesn’t look good without the Voice, apparently. and NBC is left without a genuine hit once again. Hopefully they realize that they need to go big and ambitious to get back in the game. Anyone heard of that Odyssey pilot? I thought it has tons of potential…

    …and it sounds a bit like The Event, but NBC can launch it with the Voice, of course. And keep it there.

  • Malike

    OMG intelligence lost10 million viewers and ouch at the ratings I blame the TheBlacklist
    Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow did well and next week SH is on for 2 hours

  • alexjones

    yikes for intelligence! don’t think I’ve ever seen such a massive drop for a show from it’s premiere, I can understand it though, the premiere was boring as hell.

    decent ratings for the blacklist considering it didn’t have the voice lead-in, NBC were right to renew it.

  • jupiter3765

    does the bachleor have a chance at coming back next season

  • Billy

    Mike and Molly and Mom actually skewed older than those 8:30-10:00 CBS sitcoms. Lots of viewers. Most of them older.

  • Sherry

    I love Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow, I sure hope both can stick around. Intelligence is fun, those ratings sure need to get better for it to stick around though, darn it

  • Shepherd

    A 55% drop for intelligence… IT makes me wonder what the worst episode 2 drop of all time was. I can’t recall CBS ever being in this position; I wonder if they will yank the show from the schedule. Does CBS even do that?

    Was there something going on at 10pm that I’m unaware of? Those are some big drops for both intelligence and TB. Perhaps 0.7 of that 1.1 for Intel came directly from TB’s audience?? Maybe Pablo was throwing another party last night? :)

  • Daw Johnson

    Expert analysis from TVBTN – no mention of the lack of Voice lead-in.

  • BrieK

    The Blacklist is in excellent shape all things considered.

    I’m happy for Sleepy Hollow. I hope FOX keeps it at 13 episodes next season. I think that helps the story and the ratings.

  • reallypeople


    If NBC is doing “backflips” over the horrible downslide (around 23% to a series low) in numbers for The Blacklist, then it must have been taken over by Emperor Nero. (Wikipedia it folks). Or temporary insanity. Sorry, but fan boys, please do better in your posts. Statements like this don’t help. At all.

  • Matt

    Looks like Intelligence is living up to the ratings of Chuck

  • Chris

    Against such incredibly weak competition on CBS, with that lead-in, Castle should be doing a LOT better. This season clearly marks a downturn for the show–ABC should move it next season. It’s taken up that primo slot (for an ABC series, because of the reality lead-ins and the other networks putting up weaker dramas in it) long enough.

  • Eve

    The Blacklist did great. Only Scandal, The Blacklist, SVU and Chicago Fire had earned +2.5 at 10pm this season (except The Sound Of Music Live and several awards shows). And also, this lead-in is waaaaaaay less powerful than The Voice. Still a hit.
