Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, Nov. 30, 2015.

Note: NBC affiliates in Baltimore and Cleveland 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.) 3.0/9 13.09
It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown (ABC) – S 1.8/6 7.18
Supergirl (CBS) 1.6/5 8.03
Gotham (FOX) 1.6/5 4.52
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW) 0.4/1 1.06
9 p.m. A Charlie Brown Christmas (ABC) – S 2.0/6 7.33
Scorpion (CBS) – R 1.1/3 6.59
Minority Report (FOX) – Finale 0.7/2 2.24
Greatest Holiday Commericals Countdown (The CW) – R 0.2/1 0.77
10 p.m. Superstore (NBC) – P 2.2/7 7.97
The Great Holiday Baking Show (ABC) – P 1.2/3 4.36
NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) – R 1.1/3 7.54
10:30 p.m. Superstore (NBC) 1.9/6 6.15


Both “Gotham” and “Supergirl” improved on last week’s ratings Monday night, with FOX’s show rising 0.2 and CBS’ rookie ticking up 0.1. For the first time “Gotham,” which was airing its fall finale, tied “Supergirl.”

NBC’s numbers are inflated, but even with adjustments for NFL pre-emptions “Superstore” will likely end up with decent ratings for its two-episode preview. The premiere at 10 p.m. should end up in the high 1s, while episode 2 will probably land in the 1.5-1.7 range.

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (0.4) was also up week to week, while ABC got decent numbers from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and the 50th anniversary special that preceded it. The premiere of “The Great Holiday Baking Show” (1.2) performed on par with what “Castle” has been doing.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 2.6/8 1.6/5 1.3/4 1.2/4  0.3/1
Total Viewers (000s) 11.08 6.29 7.39 3.38  0.91

: 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.
