Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, Dec. 7, 2015.

Note: The ABC affiliate in Dallas aired the “Monday Night Football” telecast, so ratings for the network could be subject to greater adjustments than usual in the final nationals.

The numbers for Monday:

Time Show Adults 18-49 Rating/Share Viewers (000s)
8 p.m. The Voice (NBC) (8-10 p.m.) 2.8/9 12.15
Supergirl (CBS) 1.5/5 7.73
The Great Christmas Light Fight (ABC) (8-10 p.m.) – P 1.3/4 5.67
TV’s Funniest Animated Stars (FOX) (8-10 p.m.) – S 0.6/2 1.70
The Flash (The CW) – R 0.3/1 1.07
9 p.m. Scorpion (CBS) 1.7/5 9.23
Arrow (The CW) – R 0.3/1 0.95

10:30 p.m. Telenovela (NBC) 0.8/3 3.34


The second leg of NBC’s post-“Voice” comedy preview didn’t work out as well as the first one. “Telenovela” put up unimpressive numbers in its two-episode debut Monday night, posting a 1.4 in adults 18-49 for its premiere and just a 0.8 for its second episode. That’s down a good amount from the 2.0 and 1.6 “Superstore” did in the same spot last week.

CBS got season-high ratings from “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.4), while “Supergirl” (1.5, -0.1) and “Scorpion” (1.7, flat) were in line with recent weeks. “The Great Christmas Light Fight” premiered to a 1.3 on ABC, pending updates.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 2.2/7 1.5/5 1.3/4 0.6/2  0.3/1
Total Viewers (000s) 9.55 8.79 5.25 1.70  1.01

: 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.
