The premieres of new unscripted series “First Dates” and “The Toy Box” put up OK ratings Friday night. “You the Jury’s” debut, however, was not so hot.
“First Dates” on NBC put up a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, equal to “Grimm’s” average in the timeslot. “The Toy Box” also earned a 0.8, down a bit from the “Last Man Standing”/”Dr. Ken” average but not bad for Fridays in spring.
FOX’s “You the Jury” struggled, managing just a 0.4 — slightly lower than “Sleepy Hollow’s” numbers in recent months.
“Shark Tank” led the night among adults 18-49 with a 1.1, a tenth better than “Hawaii Five-0” and “Blue Bloods” (1.0 each). The two CBS shows were per usual tops in viewers for the evening. “The Originals” matched its preliminary 0.4 from last week (it adjusted down in the finals); “Rosewood” (0.5) and “Reign” (0.2) were also steady.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.0/4||0.9/3||0.8/3||0.4/2||0.3/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||8.35||4.34||3.95||2.01||0.93|

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.
