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)

CBS Numbers will be slightly inflated due to Football, the CW ratings will also be slightly inflated.



Early Ratings Analysis

-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC led the Monday household overnights, beating solid No. 2 NBC by six percent. But NBC will own the evening once again in adults 18-49 (and all key demos) thanks to its combination of “The Voice” (#2: 8.5 rating/13 share from 8-10 p.m.) and “The Blacklist” (#2: 6.8/12 at 10 p.m.), which was one-tenth of a rating point behind competing “Castle” on ABC (6.9/12). Comparatively, “The Voice” built by nine percent year-to-year in the overnights (versus a 7.8/11 versus a one-hour edition on 10/22/12).

“Dancing With the Stars” took top-rated overnight honors of the evening with a 9.2/14 from 8-10 p.m. (peaking in the 9 p.m. half-hour with a 9.5/15). One year earlier, a one-hour edition of the now veteran Tom Bergeron-hosted reality/competition scored a similar 9.8/15 at 8 p.m.

Over at re-tooled CBS, week two of “2 Broke Girls” back in its original 8:30 p.m. time period finished fourth with a 5.1/ 8 in the overnights (and 96 percent retention for the 5.3/ 8 for lead-in “How I Met Your Mother”). While the retention among adults 18-49 will not be as strong, “2 Broke Girls” is a vast improvement from recent entry “We Are Men” (as well as failed year-ago time period occupant “Partners”).

Next on the Eye net was a repeat of “The Big Bang Theory” at a third-place 5.2/ 8 at 9 p.m., followed by a typical 4.7/ 7 from “Mom” at 9:30 p.m. (#3), which was flat from the prior three telecasts. Freshman drama “Hostages,” unfortunately, remained at bust at 10 pm. with a very distant third-place 3.5/ 6.

Fox was below average for the evening because of an encore of the pilot episode of “Sleepy Hollow,” which scored a 2.2/ 3 in the overnights at 9 p.m. (#4) out of a very respectable 5.2/ 8 at 8 p.m. (#3t) for lead-in “Bones.” And The CW remained out of the competitive loop with its relocated combination of “Hart of Dixie” (#5: 1.1/ 2) and “Beauty and the Beast” (#5: 0.8/ 1), which should never have been granted a second season.

About the Daily Ratings

Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

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).

Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

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)
