Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals on NBC showed a slight improvement vs. the fast nationals for Game 4 on Monday. The game drew a 1.4 in adults 18-49, pending updates, a tenth better than Monday’s 1.3 (which rose to 1.5 in the finals).
Only two other original programs aired in primetime Thursday: “Beauty and the Beast” (0.2) was even with its premiere last week for The CW. The finale of “American Grit” on FOX matched last week’s 0.7.
In late night, President Obama’s appearance with Jimmy Fallon gave “The Tonight Show” its best metered-market ratings since September (when, oddly enough, Donald Trump was a guest).

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.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. 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.
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.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
