Notes: Dancing with the Stars ran from 8p-9:13p and the premiere of Skating with the Stars ran from 9:13-11p.   The Monday Night Football game was syndicated to MyNet affiliate in Denver.  In San Diego, it aired on the CBS affiliate which aired the normal CBS schedule beginning at 9pm.

CBS won the night with adults 18-49 and ABC had the most total viewers.  Due to the odd start times, we can’t see precise numbers for the shows, but we can see enough to know that Skating with the Stars didn’t get off to a good start, dropping to a 1.9 rating with adults 18-49 between 10p-11p and it declined in each half hour.  Earlier in the night Dancing with the Stars scored a 4.7 rating with adults 18-49 from 8p-9p for its performance finale, up 18% from last week and 15% from last fall.

Chuck dropped to a season and series low 1.7 with adults 18-49. The Event was flat vs. last week with a 1.7, still tied for a series low.  Chase was up two tenths (17%)  to a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, the highest since October 18.

How I Met Your Mother dropped 3% to a 3.5 rating and Rules of Engagement was flat, tying the season low 2.9 rating.  Mike & Molly was up 8% to a season high 4.0 rating with adults 18-49. Two and a Half Men was flat versus last week with a 4.5 rating and against a weakened ABC,  Hawaii Five-0 was up 14% to a 3.2 rating.

House was down 15% to a season low 3.4 rating with adults 18-49, and Lie to Me slipped a tenth to a 1.8 rating.

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.
