A pretty solid week for the broadcast networks continued Friday as several shows hit season highs in adults 18-49. “Masterchef Junior” (1.5 and 1.4) recorded its two best numbers of the season for FOX, and “Hawaii Five-0” (1.3) and “Blue Bloods” (1.4) did the same for CBS.
NBC’s “Undateable” (0.8) also rose from its last original, and “Last Man Standing” (1.3) was steady for ABC. “Dr. Ken” was also even with its last episode at 1.1, but that ties a season low. “Shark Tank” (1.3) was below average as well. The CW’s “Reign” returned to its usual 0.3.

Late-night metered market results coming.
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.
