Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, Nov. 16, 2015.

Note: The CW affiliate in Houston and the NBC affiliate in Cincinnati aired the “Monday Night Football” telecast, so ratings for those networks 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.) 3.1/9 11.53
Dancing with the Stars (ABC) (8-10 p.m.) 1.8/6 12.28
Supergirl (CBS) 1.8/6 7.87
Gotham (FOX) 1.6/5 4.37
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW) 0.4/1 1.17
9 p.m. Scorpion (CBS) 1.6/5 9.08
Minority Report (FOX) 0.7/2 1.76
Jane the Virgin (The CW) 0.6/2 1.45
10 p.m. Blindspot (NBC) 2.3/7 8.19
NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) 1.2/4 7.78
Castle (ABC) 1.1/4 6.8


“Supergirl” stopped its declines for at least a week Monday, rising 0.1 in adults 18-49 over last week’s rating to finish with a 1.8. It wasn’t all good news for CBS, however, as “Scorpion” (1.6) was down two tenths from last week.

On ABC, “Castle” rose 0.1 to a 1.1, even though “Dancing With the Stars” was down from last week’s fast nationals. “Gotham” was also up for FOX.

The CW’s numbers are inflated due to an NFL pre-emption, but “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Jane the Virgin” are both currently up. “The Voice” and “Blindspot” are pretty much in line with last week, pending updates.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 2.9/9 1.6/5 1.6/5 1.1/3  0.5/1
Total Viewers (000s) 10.42 10.46 8.25 3.06  1.31

: 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.
