In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday Night:

For a second night in a row, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” has delivered ratings highs with special telecasts from Los Angeles.
  • Last night’s “ Tonight Show” delivered the show’s highest metered-market household result (3.6 rating, 9 share) for a Tuesday telecast in nearly a year (since Feb. 25, 2014, during Fallon’s second week as host, 4.0/10).
  • It was also the third highest rating ever for a Fallon-hosted Tuesday “Tonight” in metered-market households.
  • In Nielsen’s 25 markets with Local People Meters, last night’s 1.5/7 matches the show’s Tuesday high since Feb. 25 (1.7/8) and equals Fallon’s third-highest Tuesday “Tonight” rating ever.
  • Tuesday’s guests included, Ellen DeGeneres and Neil Young, with Doc Severinsen sitting in with The Roots.
  • On Monday, “Tonight” matched its highest Monday rating in metered-market households (3.1) in four months (since Sept. 29, 2014) and equaled “Tonight’s” highest 18-49 rating in the markets with Local People Meters (1.3) for a Monday telecast in 10 months (since March 24, 2014).
  • In Nielsen’s 56 metered markets, household results were: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” 3.6/9; CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman,” 2.5/6; and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” 1.9/5.
  • In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” 1.5/7; “Late Show,” 0.4/2; and “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” 0.6/3.
  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC’s “Nightline” averaged a 1.2/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.
  • From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” (1.6/6 in metered-market households) beat CBS’s “Late Late Show” (1.1/4).  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, “Late Night” (0.6/4 in 18-49) topped “Late Late Show” (0.2/2).
  • At 1:35 a.m., “Last Call with Carson Daly” averaged a 0.9/4 in metered-market households and a 0.4/3 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.


 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.
