CBS’ “TKO: Total Knock Out” led the 8 p.m. time slot Friday night with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.16 million viewers, even with what it had scored a week ago. It was followed by “Whistleblower,” which was similarly steady with another 0.4.
On ABC, “What Would You Do?” actually rose one-tenth week-to-week from its previous episode’s 0.4 to a 0.5. “20/20” also managed to tick up a tenth to a 0.6, putting it at the top of the 10 p.m. time slot, pending updates.
After adjusting down in the final ratings last week as well, The CW’s “Masters of Illusion” is currently up two-tenths this week with a 0.3. Whether or not that will hold in the finals on Monday, will have to wait to be seen.

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.
