via NBC press note:

In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:

 

  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.7/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.6/7; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.7/4.

 

  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.7/3; "Late Show," 0.6/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.6/3.

 

  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.0/3 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 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" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).

 

  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.9/4 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.

    What you think about that – smart or stupid?

    Smart. CBS is programming against the opening night (pre-opening ceremony) and the second week (which is much weaker, averaging only a 5.6 rating in 2010).

    FOX is programming heavily against the games as well. I don’t think that American Idol is going to win this round (previously it was 9-1 in head-to-head matchups with the Olympics), but they have the Super Bowl and it’s kind of pointless to spend millions in potential ad spots promoting shows that are on hiatus for most of the month.

    ABC is basically punting, I think The Bachelor (and 20/20) will be their only non-burnoff/filler programming during the games. With the Oscars bumped out of sweeps, there’s a reasonable chance they’ll finish fifth behind Univision.

  • The Nightman Cometh

    Goldbergs very steady, hopefully we get a renewal

  • Ally Oop

    I didn’t even realize The Originals were back last night–good think my pvr caught it. In my head I thought it came back the same week as Vampire Diaries and Reign. Should have checked my handy dandy chart.

  • chezmoi

    Does the winter olympics require succesful Americans to produce very large ratings. Lindsey Vonn’s absence for instance might affect ratings in her event!
    I saw the first episode of B99 and isn’t it Police Academy meets 21st century cop show? It was ok (I live in England).
    NCIS is very good but is AT RISK from new shows and the post-super bowl programs moved against it and of course Gibbs leaving.

  • xprophet

    SPN need to bring Jim Beaver back permanently. The powers are too cheap to pay his salary. The show last night was great because of Crowley. Please don’t knock him off too!

  • Siami

    The final numbers aren’t in yet, but considering the fact that Chicago Fire’s market share was less, the 1.8 isn’t bad. That’s 36% of its market share when POI got 33% of its market share. So there is that. I’ll have to sift through the pages to see if anyone covered the half hours.

  • Alex

    Why are people saying it’s a hiatus for AOS to go off the air for 2 weeks. A hiatus is when it’s off for 2 or 3 months, which used to be par for the course for such shows (see OUAT).

    @chezmoi

    Wait, what?

    NCIS is not even remotely at risk.

    It’s not airing against anything new except Agents of SHIELD, which it has handled very well (it’s aired against Idol/Voice for most of its run as well as Glee when it was actually a hit show).

    Super Bowl lead-outs rarely get any benefit to their regular airings and both of those shows are airing in the 9pm hour anyways.

    Finally, Mark Harmon is signed through next season, so Gibbs isn’t going anywhere.

  • Nikki

    Looks like the network war CW started didn’t help them last night. I’m guessing PLL beat TO. Can’t wait to see the ratings for PLL and Ravenswood.

  • Ultima

    @Alex
    Why are people saying it’s a hiatus for AOS to go off the air for 2 weeks.

    It’s still airing regularly scheduled repeats during that time as well.

    How are people still surprised that full season shows air repeats? 8O

    @Ultima
    Doesn’t Mark Harmon’s contract expire at the end of this season? I was pretty sure it was for 2 years.

  • Well Well Well

    I can’t handle how FOX is treating New Girl. I’m pretty sure New Girl start in the 3′s maybe higher.

  • Lise

    One of the best episodes of Supernatural in this eighth season. Note 1000000000 :D

  • eridapo

    I love the Blacklist, but it is not the best 10PM show on tv. I have to say that right now Person of Interest is not only the best show at ten but perhaps the best show on network television. For the last 6 or 7 episodes the show has been on a tear with each new episode topping the previous ones, and it has established such a mythology that even real newspapers and magazines are using it when discussing the NSA / Snowden connection. Amazing.

    It was for two years, the 11th and 12th seasons.

    TV ratings are an estimation by Nielsen of the number of people watching a particular show, station, network or event.

    In order for me to think that you thought your comment was coherent, I must assume that you didn’t already know that.

  • Ultima

    @mary

    Mark Harmon also signed a two-year extension in 2011, which lasted through last season. It’s easy to lose a year here and there! ;)

  • whatsaid

    @”I have to say that right now Person of Interest is not only the best show at ten but perhaps the best show on network television …”

    Ditto!

  • ToXiX

    It’s clearly obvious that Dante is a member of TVBTN. There’s no way he’s first every Tuesday. :roll:

  • Dale

    Dumb Dante continues to look so stupid on bashing only one show and spinoff as it clearly needs to get a life.
