Meanwhile, CBS’ special “Michael Jackson’s Halloween” was the best non-sports show of the night at 1.1. “Dateline” and “Blue Bloods” scored 0.9s. “MacGyver” rounded out CBS’ night with a 0.8, the same as what it had scored last week.
On ABC, “Once Upon a Time” held steady with a 0.5 for the second week in a row, while “Inhumans” managed to tick up one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5 this time around. Both “Jane the Virgin” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” maintained their previous 0.2s once again on The CW as well.
In addition, “Blindspot” made its move to Friday nights with its Season 3 premiere, and raked in a 0.7 on NBC. It was down one-tenth from the 0.8 that its Season 2 finale scored earlier this year.

Late-night metered market ratings to come.
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.
