Once again, it was “Hawaii Five-O” that took the top spot in the ratings Friday night.
Despite being interrupted by President Trump’s address – as were many programs last night – the CBS series scored a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49, the same as what it had scored the week before. Also on CBS, both “MacGyver” and “Blue Bloods” were able to maintain their previous 0.8s.
FOX’s “MasterChef Junior” took a minor hit this week, falling one-tenth from a 0.8 to a 0.7. The same could not be said for NBC’s “Taken,” though, which rose from a 0.4 to a 0.5 with 3.45 million viewers. “Dateline” rounded out the night for NBC with a 0.7.
On ABC, both “Once Upon a Time” and “Agents of SHIELD” were down one-tenth from their previous 0.5s to 0.4s this week, with the latter also being interrupted/delayed by the presidential address. The CW’s “Jane The Virgin” held steady with a 0.2.

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.
