“Proven Innocent” got off to a slow start Friday night.
FOX’s rookie legal drama premiered with a low 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, making it the network’s lowest-rated premiere of the season so far and tying with ABC’s “Speechless” as Friday’s lowest-rated scripted original. It also suffered a considerable drop from its “Last Man Standing” lead-in, which aired back-to-back episodes and won the night’s primetime ratings with a 1.1 and 1.0.
Elsewhere, ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” (0.7) returned from a week off, and matched its last episode, as did “Speechless” (0.5). The same could not be said for NBC’s “Blindspot” (0.5), which ticked down a tenth week-to-week, while “The Blacklist” (0.6) stayed steady.
On CBS, “MacGyver” returned with a 0.7, down from its most recent episode’s 0.8. “Blue Bloods” (0.8), however, ticked back up one-tenth, and “Hawaii Five-O” held onto its previous 0.8.

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.
