It was another relatively quiet, steady night in the Friday primetime ratings.
ABC’s “What Would You Do?” scored the same 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 that it did a week ago, and raked in a 2.58 million viewer audience, pending updates. It was followed by a “20/20” rerun at 10 p.m., which tied for the night’s no. 1 spot with a 0.5 and 2.8 million viewers.
Elsewhere, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” rerun and a new “Dateline” tied “20/20” for the night’s win with matching 0.5 ratings. Both NBC broadcasts posted 2.61 million viewer audiences in this morning’s preliminary numbers as well.
On the CW, “Masters of Illusion” ticked up from its 0.1 last week to a 0.2 this time around, while “The Big Stage” matched its previous episode’s 0.1. The rest of the night’s broadcasts were all repeats.

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.
