Friday was a fairly quiet night in the broadcast ratings, with only ABC’s “20/20” (1.3), which devoted an hour to the life and death of Prince, definitely improving on last week’s performance.
The season finales of “Last Man Standing” (1.0) and “Dr. Ken” (0.9) on ABC were each off a tenth from last week, tying their season lows. “Shark Tank” (1.2) also came down a tenth.
At CBS, “Hawaii Five-0” equaled last week’s 1.1, but “The Amazing Race” fell a tenth to 1.0. “Hell’s Kitchen” was also steady for FOX at 0.9.
“The Vampire Diaries” (0.5) and “Grimm” (0.9) are currently up vs. last week, but they may not hold as The CW affiliate in Chicago and the NBC affiliate in San Francisco aired major league baseball games Friday.

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.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. 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.
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.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
