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.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Sleepy Hollow will be cancelled next season. No question. A 2.3 isn’t much a cushion to avoid cancellation if it experiences another massive drop.

    And it’s become quite obvious that the Blacklist isn’t quite the stable hit that we thought it was. It’s nothing without the Voice.

  • Jacquelyn

    I think SH will adjust up to a 2.4.

  • Valentin

    @Kaio : 0.4/0.4

  • Blake

    Whenever someone says how irrelevant lead-ins have become in this digital day and age just point them to The Blacklist leading out of The Voice and Hollywood Game Night.

  • AAA

    CW was preempted. So it will be back 0.3 for both BaTB and HoD. Too bad.
    And Intelligence 1.1/1.0 half hours with over 5 mil viewers? Wow.

  • wn

    I had been losing interest in Sleepy Hollow, but its finale was very good. I think it’s on the right track towards succeeding.

  • j

    Hmm, somewhat worrying for Blacklist’s prospects of remaining a hit next season.

  • Ultima

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


    CBS schedule for that night…

    8:00 – The Big Bang Theory (R)
    8:30 – Friends with Better Lives
    9:00 – NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship

  • Valentin

    @AAA : A lot of time CW was preemted and Hart of Dixie got 0.4 both in the preliminary numbers & final

  • TVDude

    I think that number is still great for BL. It’s down, but it’s not bad at all, especially when you consider how the other shows are doing. It’s possible that it’ll be the only NBC show to reach above a 2.0 this week.

  • MeAndMrsJones


    I’m with you on SH. Those middle episodes were boring, but the finale tied everything together very, very nicely. I’m excited for S2 and I’m already wishing it was August.

  • Ultima

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

    FOX said that they plan to air all of season two during the fall, which means an early premiere (probably 15 September) – that’s only eight months! ;)

  • Dan S

    Mon at 10pm for CBS IS NOT a deathslot. They just keep programming junk there that audiences don’t care about. I had Intelligence in my cue until I saw the pilot. It was then promptly removed. Even though Blacklist hit a low I’m sure it’ll thrive on Thur next season. A bit surprised SH didn’t get a higher rating with the lackluster competition it was against with the exception of HIMYM.

  • Ultima

    It’s nothing without the Voice.

    It’s nothing except NBC’s highest rated scripted show. :roll:

  • Observer

    I also was starting to lose interest in SH, but that finale brought me back big time. Not trying to Fan Excuse Bingo here, but it was only by chance that I found out that the 2 hour finale started at 8p.

  • JFC

    I’m thinking that part of Blacklist’s fall is because of Intelligence. It seems like they are both after at least some of the same audience

  • Cerebro

    I was hoping the “Sleepy Hollow” finale would nudge a little higher. By FOX’s, current, standards for drama series, it still did quite well. Overall, fantastic finale. Especially the last 15 minutes. A LOT happened in those last 15 minutes. Can’t wait to see what season 2 will bring.

    Yes, “The Blacklist” is down a little without “The Voice” lead-in. That’s hardly cause for concern. “The Blacklist” still remains NBC’s best performing scripted series. They’ve got nothing to complain about.

  • Andrew43


    Sure, because a show with a 1.1 in the demo – around the same as the previous show airing there – is going to impact the biggest new show of the season. :rolls:

  • tom

    Thank u for the updates!
    Is it possible to know the ratings of SyFy shows for Monday? Or they are delayed coz of the holiday?

  • Bad Wolf

    Wow ! Are the CW shows back from the dead ? I don’t think so, it’s unlikely they’ll maintain these numbers for the rest of the season (especially with one being moved to Fridays and the other going on hiatus).

    I’m afraid The Blacklist will follow Revolution’s footsteps, it doesn’t seem strong enough to stand on its own.

    And I thought Intelligence would have at the very least stabilized (well, it could still be adjusted up…). It’s like everybody, including on this forum, have already forgotten about it. What a (somewhat predictable) waste of time and money for CBS… I wonder if Ms. Helgenberger will return to the safety of CSI in the months to come ?
