“Quantico” ended its 3-season run on ABC in steady fashion Friday night, scoring the same 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 as it had the previous several weeks, and matched its season average as well.
The same could not be said for the finale of “What Would You Do?,” though, which was down a tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4. Meanwhile, “20/20” maintained a 0.5 for the second week in a row.
On NBC, an “American Ninja Warrior” encore and a new episode of “Dateline” both tied for the top spot of the night in adults 18-49 with a pair of 0.6s. CBS’ “Whistleblower” held steady with another 0.4, while “TKO: Total Knock Out” returned with the same 0.6 as its previous episode. The CW’s “Masters of Illusion” also stayed even 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.
