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.

    I think it is fair to say that Ultima is a pro “nonsense” kind of guy :)

    Great to see CASTLE’s prime age viewers up from last week and appears second in total viewership last night with the overall audiences. I have to admit, I am a Nathan Fillion fan but unlike most viewers I never heard of him before CASTLE though he has many fellowers since his ‘FIREFLY’ days back in 2002. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!!

  • Bonnie

    I don’t like to be a hater, but I’m so glad Mom dropped back down to it’s season low 1.9. It makes last week’s 2.4 for The Crazy Ones look even better. Die Chuck Lorre, DIE!

    @John A.
    Revolution was moved to a new time slot Wednesday at 8pm and it is not a family show.
    Season2 has been awesome this year. I agree the show had some problems. Most shows do. TBL is wearing thin. I like James Spader, he is starting to grate on me. The show is almost unbelievable at this point. The FBI are pretty stupid at least on TBL.
    You can not compare the 2 shows one is Sci-fi the other is supposed yo be action suspense. I know REVOLUTION started out ridiculously high like a 4.1 and a 11 million viewers, I could have predicted Revolution would only keep half the viewers by 2014. Season 1 the first 10 episodes were awful. However S1 ep.11 through 20 were awesome.
    Season 2 has been very good. I don’t know how NBC can bring viewers back to the show.

    Oh,@Rob60990, you at it again. You need to worry about the pitiful revenge whose ratings suck,cause Sleepy Hollow is doing just fine.Is it me or are you always hating on shows that feature Minority women. You hate Nikita . The ratings did suck so i’ll let that go on that, but Sleepy Hollow and Scandal, that’s suspect cause their ratings are good , you need to embrace diversity maybe you can learn something,except how to hate,cause their doing just fine especially Shonda Rhimes and Kerry Washington.LOL

    The Blacklist will be under 2.0 as early as next week. Bloop!

  • Alex

    pleasantly surprised with HGN’s numbers. i expected both episodes to tie the 1.0 for the christmas episode. I’m glad people are starting to watch it it really is entertaining.

    I’m starting to get worried for the blacklist. it still is nbc’s #1 show, but i think everyone thought it wasn’t dependent on the voice lead-in. hopefully its numbers will improve after the olympics.

    People keep speculating that CBS Mondays will be a fantastic failure next year without HIMYM anchoring 8pm. But HIMYM is an old series and it has showed in the ratings the past 1.5 years. It’s entirely possible that CBS Mondays would benefit from a fresh 8pm anchor [/i]

    Just like NBC with their hit comedies Welcome to the family, Sean and the one who must save the comedies on the network, MJ Fox Show.

    No, I think Monday 8 will be a single cam-hour, because of HIMYF is a single-cam comedy. 2Broke and The Millers will be the comedies at 9 and NCIS LA at 10.

    ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Finale Rises

    That must’ve been like a sword in jenna’s side!

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    When people use TBL, I keep seeing The Biggest Loser rather than The Blacklist.

  • marm

    Black List will probably go UP

  • Eve

    NBC was extremely stupid giving The Blacklist such an stupid lead-in as Hollywood Game Night. Completely different target shows.

    Still good numbers for The Blacklist. I just hope that NBC won’t have HGN next Monday.

  • r0ckmypants

    @AllOfHerTw!st – “That must’ve been like a sword in jenna’s side!”

    Nah, she still had this to say: “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.”

    I just… can’t with her. :roll:

    As a faithful viewer of both Arrow and BATB, it stymies me and actually hurts that one has such horrible ratings while the other scores so well. BATB was so interesting last nite. I think Arrow gets half its viewers
    due to Stephen Amell’s abs. The story line down right sucks this season, and i’m tireing of waiting for it to get interesting again

  • Shepherd


    I think Arrow gets half its viewers due to Stephen Amell’s abs.

    So even though Arrow skews male, half the viewers tune in for his abs? I guess that wouldn’t be impossible.

  • Ultima

    I just hope that NBC won’t have HGN next Monday.

    As if the schedule hasn’t already been out for a month or so?

  • grey

    Are the final numbers delayed because of the holiday?

  • Ronak

    I predicted that Blacklist and Castle would grow close to each other in demo numbers without the Voice lead in for the former show. Glad to see it coming true.

    The Castle fandom online spews nonsense about “bad episodes” and “lack of chemistry” and “no kisses” on a regular basis. It is good to tune them out and look simply at numbers and see the show in a healthy state.

    I expected SH to be up too.

  • Sarah

    And all Revenge fans are quite after last week they were blasting Castle ratings. Look Revenge fans unlike your show Castle has loyal fans that never disappoint it might deep once in a while but it s steady as a rock. Shame Blacklist not doing well without The Voice. Scandal will now be the number one show at ten o clock.

  • Matthew

    NBC and the writers conspired last year to try to kill Revolution.

    The insanely long hiatus hurt no matter what the writers damaged.

    I am encouraged with the developments this season and am holding out hope that it gets a 3rd and thus a 4th season. Here is hoping it is cheap enough to produce. Perhaps slide it ahead of Grimm for next season on Friday.
