The return of its usual scripted lineup carried CBS to the top in the Friday primetime ratings this week.
The return of “MacGyver” kicked off the night for CBS with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, down a tenth from its last episode’s 0.7, but still tying for the hour’s 18-49 win.
“Hawaii Five-O” (0.7) and “Blue Bloods” (0.7) followed, not only staying even with their previous episodes, but also tying as the night’s highest-rated broadcasts. “Blue Bloods” also scored the night’s largest total audience with 7.71 million viewers.
Elsewhere, ABC’s broadcast of rounds 2 and 3 of this year’s NFL Draft posted a 0.5 average rating with a 2.58 million viewer average, down from 0.6 rating that the draft’s round 2 broadcast on FOX scored a year ago.
On NBC, “The Blacklist” raked in a 0.6 rating at 8 p.m. – up two-tenths from the 0.4 that “Blindspot” scored in the hour last week. “Blacklist” grabbed a 0.5 in its usual 9 p.m. time slot as well, down from the 0.6 it scored a week ago.
Meanwhile, with only a “Cool Kids” rerun as its lead-in, FOX’s “Proven Innocent” ticked down from a 0.4 to a 0.3. The CW’s “Dynasty” (0.2) similarly stayed even week-to-week.

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.
