"Chicago Fire" Once Again Dominates the 10 p.m. ET Slot Delivering Series Record Ratings
NBC spins the numbers for Tuesday, October 1.

[via press release from NBC]

Tuesday Results (please note corrected "Voice" results):

For the first time in eight years, NBC has won the opening two Tuesdays of the season among the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49. Last night, NBC swept all six half-hours among those networks with the #1 show of the night, "The Voice," teamed with "Chicago Fire," which is currently reporting series-record ratings.

NBC also swept the Monday half-hours among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in 18-49 and has now won 12 of 12 half-hour among those networks so far this week.

· From 8-10:01 p.m. ET, "The Voice" (4.4 rating, 13 share in adults 18-49, 14.2 million viewers overall from 8-10:01 p.m. ET) is #1 for the two-hour time period in adults 18-49, and virtually all other key demographics and is the #1 show of the night in 18-49 and other measures. "The Voice" is running within 4% of last week's fast-affiliate rating in 18-49 (4.4 vs. 4.6) and up slightly in total viewers (14.204 million vs. 14.137 million). Official nationals for last Tuesday were 4.7/13 and 14.351 million.

· From its first half-hour to its fourth, "The Voice" grew 1.8 rating points or 53% in 18-49 rating (to a 5.2 from a 3.4) and up 42% or nearly 4.9 million persons in total viewers (16.5 million vs. 11.7 million).

· "Chicago Fire" (2.8/8 in 18-49, 9.000 million viewers from 10:01-11 p.m. ET) once again dominated the 10 p.m. ET slot among ABC, CBS and NBC in 18-49, with a 40% margin of victory over CBS's #2 "Person of Interest" (2.8 vs. 2.0). "Chicago Fire" also led the hour among those networks in adults 18-34, adults 25-54 and all key adult-female demos.

· Pending updates, "Chicago Fire" is currently delivering series record ratings, topping last week's 2.7 rating in 18-49 and 8.899 million viewers overall in official nationals (in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings, last week's results were a 2.8 in 18-49 and 9.254 million viewers overall).

· "Chicago Fire" beat results for its second episode of last season by 87% in 18-49 rating (2.8 vs. 1.5 on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012) and by 54% in total viewers (9.000 million vs. 5.849 million). The 2.8 rating is NBC's top 18-49 result in this time period with in-season regular programming since May 24, 2011 ("The Voice"). In its first two weeks, "Chicago Fire" has now delivered NBC's two top 18-49 results in this slot with in-season regular programming since that date.

· Note that in "Live Plus Three Day" ratings last week: "Chicago Fire" added 30% or 0.80 of a point to its next-day "live plus same day" 18-49 rating (to a 3.47 in L+3 from a 2.67 in L+SD) and in total viewers, added 31% or 2.740 million persons (11.639 million vs. 8.899 million).

· NBC is up 73% versus the second Tuesday of last season in 18-49 (with a 3.8 rating vs. a 2.2 on Oct. 2, 2012) and up 106% in total viewers (12.470 million vs. 6.053 million).

In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:

· In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.9/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.7/7; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.8/5.

· In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 1.0/5; "Late Show," 0.7/4; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.7/4.

· From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.1/4 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.

· From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.6/6 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.3/5). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.7/5 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.4/3).

· At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 1.0/4 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.5/4 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.
