I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been MIA these past few weeks. I was out of town on a vacation and then today when I got on my computer my photo programs are completely whacked out. So my gallery photos may be on a delay until I figure out what’s going on.

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).
