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.

    wow, that’s the lowest rated January episode HIMYM has ever had. Too bad, it had a funny episode last night.

    If HIMYM ended last year, its finale would have garnered 5.0+ rating. This year it won’t probably even crack a 4.0, too bad.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Almost Renewed? Please adjust up Sleepy Holler!

    Simply fantastic night for The Blacklist!

    That certainly isn’t bad for Castle.

    Intelligence isn’t very bright.

  • Mark

    I guess Intelligence ratings proves old people will watch anything on Tuesday Nights on CBS after NCIS. lol

  • Al

    Respectable for blacklist but stop using the voice as an excuse if keeps dropping than nbc should began to worry

  • DrainBamage

    Intelligence was going to have a tough time with solid Castle (up like expected to its norms) and NBC’s hit The Blacklist (2.5 with no Voice, not bad for NBC and at 10pm even more so.) Almost Human is hanging in there and the show is getting better as time goes on. Its firmly on my Live watch list.

  • Hel-luhr

    Intelligence likely can’t recover from that kind of hit. Leaves the CBS drama slate open for Good Wife and/or Mentalist renewals.

  • were123

    First time in a very, veeery long time that FOX won Monday night (although it is a tie, but they must be thirlled anyway).
    Those who says The Blacklist is doing poorly are delirious; at a 2.5 is still NBC’s highest rated show and any show that can pull over a 2 at the 10PM timeslot can be considered a hit. The show did pretty well, and even better if you consider that the Smash premiere without The Voice did a 1.2, and Revolution a 1.8. Hell, even Chicago Fire pulled low 2s AFTER The Voice!

  • Charmed

    HoD! Didn’t even know it was on last night!

    Outstanding for Almost Human

  • David James

    Very good for How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly. Mom is OK as usual. Intelligence dropped over 50%! Wow. I didn’t expect a drop that bad. Other bubble series chances increases.

    Sleepy Hollow is remarkably steady. After a month break and still at a 2.2. Almost Human is really trying its hardest to look good but the odds are against it considering it has another 3 week break. Shows like these should begin production earlier to stop the constant breaks.

    The Blacklist is a hit. A 2.5 in the 9pm hour would be good, but this is 10pm on NBC. Yes there was a drop, but that was expected. Well done to NBC.

    Castle is still doing good. Nice increase for Hart of Dixie. Pathetic Beauty and the Beast will be off the schedule before we know it.

  • Charmed

    RIP Intelligence

  • John A

    Good Intellgence flopped.

  • Edward

    Reallypeople, NBC has to compare this number to how other dramas have fared without The Voice lead in. Smash? Revolution? Compared to those shows, Blacklist did great. They also have to compare it to other 10pm shows across broadcast. It still beats every show other than Scandal (which always has a Grey’s lead-in).

    Only an idiot wouldn’t expect a significant drop without The Voice lead in. NBC will take a 2.5 at 10pm and be very, very happy with that.

  • Brandy

    Yay HoD & 2 Broke Girls are up!BatB was good.

  • Kissan

    LOL at The Bachelor. What a lame show. Those 7.88 million people are wasting their lives. Good for HIMYM but I though the other CBS comedies would do much better than that since The Voice and DWTS isn’t on. LOL at Intelligence too, I smell a burnoff coming. The Blacklist did pretty good considering this is the first time it didn’t have The Voice as a lead in. One can only hope it’ll go up next week. I wonder what caused the uptick for HOD, maybe cause of The Voice’s absence? Almost Human going up even more than last week against more competition means it’s finding an audience. I have a feeling mostly men are watching Almost Human since Bachelor, CBS comedies and HOD all skew mostly female. Can’t wait to see what The Fosters gets later on today.

  • Sam

    wow, intelligence just died. Josh holloway was not meant to come back to tv I guess…

  • khalil

    Ouch for Intelligence and The Blacklist !!

  • Tom

    @ Mark

    “Did HOD even rate that high before Xmas?”

    The highest was a 0.44 demo on October 21. Although they’ll probably adjust down, yesterday’s demo/viewer numbers were highs for the season

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    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.

    And it’s a lighthearted drama, for the most part, so it would likely pair fairly well with the Monday CBS comedies.

    “Only an idiot wouldn’t expect a significant drop without The Voice lead in. NBC will take a 2.5 at 10pm and be very, very happy with that.”

    LOL! As I said before, fan boys do better in your posts. Statements like this don’t help at all. Thanks for proving my point, again.

    Oh, and I look forward to your next sock puppet name when you come to your senses at how ridiculous the statement you made was.

  • RIP Ripple

    Sigh!!!!!! I really liked intelligence. Oh well, I guess I will just have to find somethingelse in that genre to watch. I am wondering if it is just the timeslot or the type of shows that cbs is trying to put at 10 pm on monday? And if it is the timeslot, why do they always struggle with shows at 10pm on Monday? Just a thaught.
