Today's Early Overnight Ratings

This table shows the early overnight ratings. These ratings are normally adjusted later in the day when all the ratings have been consolidated to take into account any local preemptions and/or overruns. You can find all the final adjusted numbers in our Ratings Database. (See the About section below for details about ratings)

The analysis below is based on the early household numbers and are NOT the same as the numbers that will be posted in the above table later. (See the About section below)

-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC took center stage in the overnights on this fourth Monday in February with its successful pairing of The Bachelor (6.7/10 from 8-10 p.m.), which built by six percent year-to-year, and Castle (#1: 7.5/ 13 at 10 p.m. -- #1 overall for the night), which increased by 10 percent from the 9:30 p.m. portion of The Bachelor (6.8/10). The Bachelor finished first in three of the four half hours (excluding 9 p.m., which was in favor of 2 Broke Girls on CBS).

Second-place CBS, meanwhile, had nothing unusual to report with its combination of How I Met Your Mother (#2: 6.2/ 9), recent returnee Rules of Engagement (#3: 5.2/ 8), 2 Broke Girls (#1: 7.0/11), compatible Mike & Molly (#2: 6.6/10) and a repeat of Hawaii Five-O (#2: 4.5/ 8). Despite not being original, Hawaii Five-O bested struggling Deception on NBC (#3: 2.5/ 4) by a hefty 80 percent.

Over at Fox, The Following with Kevin Bacon continues to inch closer to a second season renewal with a third-place 5.5/ 8 in the overnights at 9 p.m. Comparably, overnight retention out of lead-in Bones (#3: 5.6/ 9) was almost 100 percent. And there is every reason to believe (based on recent patterns) that the young adult demos will be considerably stronger.

Elsewhere, The Biggest Loser on NBC (#4: 3.8/ 6 from 8-10 p.m.) continues to pale in comparison to soon-to return The Voice. And it trailed competing The Bachelor on ABC by 43 percent. Aforementioned Deception at 10 p.m. (#3: 2.5/ 4) finished 49 percent below year-ago occupant Smash (4.9/ 8 on 2/27/12), which is certainly not Smash in the Tuesday 10 p.m. hour at present. Suggestion to NBC: Maybe you should flip their time periods.

Struggling The Carrie Diaries on The CW (#5: 1.0/ 2 at 8 p.m.), meanwhile, led into a mere 0.6/ 1 at 9 p.m. for 90210 (#5), which is begging to be canceled at this point.

In late night, Jay Leno on NBC led the 11:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. daypart with a 2.7/ 7 in the overnights (3.2/ 8 to 2.1/ 6 by half-hour: equal to the year-ago evening). Next was David Letterman on CBS at a 2.5/ 7 (2.9/ 7 to 2.1/ 6: + 4 percent), followed by relocated (and younger skewing) Jimmy Kimmel on ABC at a 2.4/ 6 (3.0/ 7 to 1.8/ 5: - 9 percent from year-ago occupant Nightline in the 11:30 p.m. half-hour).

Nightline, of course, has not benefited since moving into the 12:30 a.m. half-hour with a 1.4/ 5.

Jimmy Fallon on NBC (1.3/ 4 to 1.1/ 4) and Craig Ferguson on CBS (1.4/ 5 to 1.0/ 4) tied, each with a 1.2/ 4 from 12:30-1:30 a.m. And lead-out Carson Daly on NBC slipped to a 0.7/ 3 at 1:30 a.m. It looks like the insomniacs may have gotten some sleep.

About the Daily Ratings

Each day (except Sunday) we post the TV Ratings for the previous night.

The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above.

Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below)
