In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:


  • In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 3.0/8 with an encore telecast; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.0/5 with an encore; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.1/5.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4 with an encore; "Late Show," 0.4/2 with an encore; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.6/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.3/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 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" (1.0/3).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.2/1).
  • At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/3 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.

    Fox won 18-49 without Idol, they have to love it.

    Hope SH adjusts up but we won’t know until tomorrow.

  • DM

    BatB got a 0.4… What will the delusional TCD fans say now?

  • Charmed

    BATB half hours?

  • casey

    Pretty dismal numbers all around!
    2.3 at 10PM is decent for The Blacklist…but the show has been falling the last couple of weeks without the Voice as a lead in…one can only wonder if the show will fail next year if they change nights

  • Nick.

    Meh. At this rate Blacklist is still good, but it won’t “anchor Thursday nights” as suggested at TCA.

  • Michelle

    Way to go Castle! I wonder if Intelligence was on another night if it would do well. It’s not a bad show.

  • s0303

    @Ronald…revolution never aired without the voice lead in…nbc must have more faith in the blacklist…

  • Sam

    Wow, the blacklist really took a huge hit lately.
    A bit low for sleepy hollow. Season 2 will likely be the last one. Unless some miracle happens.

  • Jazz

    Sleepy Hollow finale was sooooooooo good. Best finale I have seen in a while. It’s gonna be a long 9 months.

  • MeAndMrsJones

    SH was amazing! That’s the most fun show on TV. Is it too much to hope for it to adjust up?

  • CBSviewer

    Mom is likely to be cancelled now.

  • Valentin

    @Charmed : 0.4/0.3

  • Jamiestp

    4/7/14 the day CBS Monday night comedies crash and burn. Unless they put TBBT repeats at 8pm

  • RBotha

    And The Blacklist can’t keep up with Scandal without the help of The Voice. Go Scandal!

  • Ci_Wall

    I really hope The Blacklist aleast adjust up to a 2.4 but I would much rather prefer a 2.5 and above 9 million viewers.

  • Just Because

    I actually liked Intelligence, but putting it on against Castle and Blacklist was stupid if albeit a nice try. I can only record/watch two shows at a time, and the slot Intelligence started in was great. Sure, it was behind NCIS (soooo OLD! SOOOO Boring!)to give it the most exposure, but then moving it in the death slot it’s in now was idiocy/hubris. It did well against no competition, just like NCIS:LA does now. I’d move it PDQ if I were CBS.

  • Jami

    Revolution gradually dropped with the voice, I don’t have the exact numbers the drop was gradual, and Revolution was postponed and also went into June. I think Revolution started hitting 2.3 around the 15the episode. Like I said not sure. Get back to you on that. However can not really compare the shows, two different genre’s.

  • Kaio

    What about Dixie?

  • Mark

    Sadly Intelligence is toast, I was hoping for a slight increase this week but it got worse

  • Carl

    ABC must be relieved that their idiot “bachelor” didn’t cost them any viewers after shooting his mouth off.

    With all the focus on dullards Ichabod and Katrina, that was a good rating for Sleepy Hollow.

    I wonder if The Blacklist will stabilize or keep dropping.
