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.

    If NBC really wanted to kill Revolution, wouldn’t they have just cancelled it?

  • Ultima

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

    Pretty sure NBC doesn’t need to conspire with anyone to kill Revolution since they have the power to just cancel the show. :roll:

    [quote]I hardly ever watch anything live but I’ve never understood how people who do watch live tv don’t watch programs they started watching… Those blacklist numbers are terrible!… How can a show go from 3.0+ to 2.3 in one season? Don’t get it! Voice lead in or not[/quote]

    I can only say what happened with me. I forgot. I caught it ON DEMAND, though.

  • CBSviewer

    I am the only one who think FOX should have premiered Rake after the NFC Championship ?
    It will air an episode this week but not The Following which means smaller impact.

  • HalCapone

    FOX seems to be using a programming strategy of randomness and incoherence. Perhaps it’s to keep the competition guessing and viewers engaged in this mystery. So far, it’s not working so well.

  • Networkman

    What the heck happen to Mike & Molly? It usually garners more viewers than all the other comedies on Monday night. I would of expected it to cross the 9 million mark. And its demo is even too low. Usually it will drop .3 or .4 demo from 2 Broke Girls. It should of garnered at least 2.3- or 2.4

    Did Hollywood Game Night effect Mike & Molly?

  • Carla

    Sleepy Hollow was terrific last night, most entertaining show of the season. Blacklist continues to intrigue, but ultra-violent, overly complex story lines are diminishing its luster.

  • r0ckmypants

    @CBSViewer – “I am the only one who think FOX should have premiered Rake after the NFC Championship?”

    They probably should have, but everything about how they’re treating Rake seems to indicate they have little faith in it.

    BATB did a little better! Next week it’ll hopefully rise up! All the Beasties are still fighting to save the show & you all BATB haters out there will have to get over it!! I’ve lost Moonlight! Can’t lose BATB & Jay Ryan!

  • r0ckmypants

    @Diana – “BATB did a little better! Next week it’ll hopefully rise up! All the Beasties are still fighting to save the show & you all BATB haters out there will have to get over it!!”

    Reading is fundamental, dear: “Note: The CW was preempted in Chicago for basketball. Ratings for the CW may be inflated and subject to more than the typical adjustment in the finals.”

    Intelligence is getting better but the ratings have sunk. Poor scheduling by CBS if you ask me. Putting crime vs crime vs crime something was bound to fail and its the newest show of the lot.

  • Amy

    @Big Black C I’m sorry but I disagree. The writing and acting is much better on Sleepy Hollow than on Almost Human. The SH finale was AMAZING. Love the twist at the end.

  • Brad


    You sound like you’re 13. Are you 13?

  • Siami

    Sleepy Hollow has been so good lately, and the finale was amazing! The numbers are bad considering how much they keep moving this show around and scheduling breaks for its first season. Good for them.

  • Siami

    I meant, the numbers AREN’T bad considering how much they’ve moved it around and scheduled breaks during its first season. They need to keep it in one slot so its audience can grow.

  • Networkman

    Well, in Intelligence, CBS has another midseason drama that has failed. There was no reason for it to fail. Not only does it has star power but it seems like a show that would be the perfect fit for the network. It should have remained on Tuesday @9pm while NCIS:LA could have moved to Monday @10pm.

    Unlike last year when CBS had Elementary to fall back on, this year they have not one freshman drama to renew for the Fall. They really should have tried the Beverly Hill Cop drama.

  • skyfi

    Get it haters!!!
    Batb is up and will be up to 0.5 when paired with Star-Crossed.

  • Scot

    Sleepy Hollow aired in the same Monday at 9 time slot for it’s entire first season. There was a break for baseball which happens to all Fox shows in the fall, and then a short winter hiatus in December which ALSO happens to every show on every network. Sleepy Hollow maintained very steady numbers throughout its first season, and has already been renewed for season 2.

  • Laurene

    “Batb is up”

    BATB doesn’t reach one million lmao

    “and will be up to 0.5 when paired with Star-Crossed.”

    Sweety, your show is dead.
