With a couple of exceptions, ratings were mostly down Friday. ABC’s “Shark Tank” took the biggest hit, falling 0.3 in adults 18-49 vs. last week to a 1.2. That’s the show’s lowest Friday number this season (a couple of special airings on other nights also scored 1.2s). “Last Man Standing” and “Dr. Ken” were each down a tenth for ABC.
“The Amazing Race” and “Hawaii Five-0” both held even with last week’s 1.1s for CBS, but “Blue Bloods” (1.2) slid a tenth.
Now the good news: “The Vampire Diaries” (0.5) rose a tenth from last week, and a two-hour “Dateline” jumped three tenths to 1.2. FOX’s “Sleepy Hollow” (0.8) is even with last week’s fast nationals and up 0.1 from its final number.

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.
