Without “Last Man Standing” airing an episode this week, FOX was forced to cede the top of the Friday primetime ratings to CBS. This meant that the highest performance of the night went to “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition,” with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, one-tenth of a point lower than the reality series’s score for its Thursday airing. “Blue Bloods” also lost 0.1 of its viewership, dipping a bit to 0.7.
Despite losing the no. 1 slot, FOX still had a strong performer in the season finale of “Hell’s Kitchen.” The cooking series held onto its gains from last week at 0.8, which it managed to maintain across both hours of its broadcast.
NBC aired three hours of new content to little change from the norm, with “Blindspot” and “Dateline” each clinging to the pair of 0.5’s they scored last week. “The Blacklist” broke from that mold a bit, ticking up from 0.5 to 0.6.
On ABC, a rerun of “Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown” scored a 0.6, while “Speechless” and “Fresh Off the Boat” each took the week off. “20/20” recovered the minor losses it suffered last week, however, returning to 0.8 from 0.7.
The CW status quo held true, with “Dynasty” landing at its usual 0.2 and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” continuing to tread water at 0.1.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.9/5||0.8/4||0.7/4||0.5/3||0.1/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||5.44||3.19||4.54||3.50||0.54|
Late-night metered market ratings to come.
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.
