FOX’s “Hell’s Kitchen” delivered its best ratings of the season Friday. The Season 2 premiere of “Taken,” however, came in pretty low — even accounting for its new Friday home.
“Hell’s Kitchen” scored a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49, beating all three of CBS’ shows by a tenth of a point. “MacGyver” was up a tenth to a season high, while “Hawaii Five-0” dipped two tenths and “Blue Bloods” was steady.
“Taken” opened with a 0.5, half its Season 1 average (it aired on Mondays last spring) and 0.3 below its finale. Ratings declines were pretty much a given with the show’s move to Friday, but that’s still not a great start.
ABC’s “Child Support” (0.8) and “Agents of SHIELD” (0.6) were each off a tenth from a week ago. “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” put up its usual 0.2 on The CW.

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.
