FOX’s “Last Man Standing” returned from its winter hiatus to win yet another Friday night in the primetime ratings. The Tim Allen-led comedy scored a 1.0 in adults 18-49, matching its previous episode and its season low. “The Cool Kids” returned similarly steady with another 0.8, as did “Hell’s Kitchen” (0.7).
CBS also brought back its entire Friday primetime lineup, starting with “MacGyver,” which returned with its fifth straight 0.7. “Hawaii Five-O” and “Blue Bloods” followed it with matching 0.8s to win their respective hours, though the latter was down a tenth from its last episode.
Elsewhere, it was a fairly solid night for ABC. “Fresh Off the Boat” returned with a 0.7, up two-tenths and tying its season high. “Speechless” also came back up a tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5, while “20/20” rounded out the night for the network with a 0.8.
Following its initial premiere Thursday night, NBC’s “The Blacklist” made its Friday night debut with a 0.6 and 3.91 million viewers, down three-tenths from its premiere’s 0.9 and predictably marking a new series low for the drama.
On the CW, the annual “Hollywood Walk of Fame Honors” special grabbed a 0.1, with back-to-back “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” (0.2, 0.2) reruns as lead-ins.

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.
