    NBC wins the night among the Big 4 in every key measure with the #1 and #2 shows of the night in adults 18-49, “America’s Got Talent: Holiday Spectacular” and a special preview of “The Wall.”

    · Generated strong sampling, retaining 89% of its lead-in from the “Talent” special in adults 18-49 (1.6 vs. 1.8).

    · Wins the time period among those nets in every key measure.

    In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday Night:

    · In Nielsen’s 56 metered markets, household results were: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” 2.7/7; “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” 1.9/5; and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” 1.8/4 with an encore.

    · From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC’s “Nightline” averaged a 1.1/4 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, ratings were: “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” 1.5/5 in metered-market households; CBS’s “Late Late Show,” 0.9/3 with an encore. In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, averages were: “Late Night,” 0.5/3 in 18-49; “Late Late Show,” 0.2/1 with an encore.

    · At 1:35 a.m., “Last Call with Carson Daly” averaged a 0.8/3 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/3 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

  2. Surprised at the 1/2-hour split for The Wall. Maybe that is a positive sign for it. I DVR’ed it so will watch it tonight.

  3. Still loving Scorpion even in season 3. Being in the 10PM has hurt it some but it’s better than what most could put up in that hour
