ABC won the night in adults 18-49 and total viewers.
The Stand Up to Cancer telethon aired from 8-9 PM on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. It averaged a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating across all four networks, down from a 2.3 for the September 10, 2010 telecast. (There was no telethon in 2011.) Thus ends a week in which all the networks frequently aired the same programming at the same time.
On ABC, a new two-hour 20/20 scored a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.
On NBC, Dateline earned a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, matching the performance of its last new Friday episode on August 24.
On the CW, America’s Next Top Model garnered a 0.7 among adults 18-49, winning its time period by airing against the telethon, and rising 75% from last week’s 0.4. This was the show’s best performance among adults 18-49 since last season’s finale on May 30, 2012.
Late night ratings are below the primetime ratings table.

Friday’s Ratings Via TV Media Insights
NOTE: All ratings are “live plus same day” from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.
Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent. More information on ratings is available here.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live football game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.
Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
