In its second week back from its winter hiatus, “Last Man Standing” on FOX rose from its previous 1.0 to 1.2 in adults 18-49. This meant that not only did the Tim Allen-led series win the 8 p.m. time slot, but that it stood head and shoulders above almost everything else that aired Friday night.
“The Cool Kids” followed its lead pretty well, however, adding 0.2 to its previous performance to take home a 1.0 rating. Rounding out the FOX triad was “Hell’s Kitchen,” which did not build on past scores like the two shows preceding it, but still managed to maintain its 0.8.
On CBS, “MacGyver” started off the night by raising one-tenth to 0.8. This was significant, because the series had been mired at 0.7 for five consecutive broadcasts. “Hawaii Five-O” also ticked up the same amount, climbing up to 0.9 and allowing CBS to win the 9 p.m. timeslot. On its tail was “Blue Bloods,” matching the 0.8 it sunk to last week.
Over at ABC, “Fresh Off the Boat” remained stable at 0.7, where it had previously risen to match its season high. “Speechless” also maintained its gains at 0.5, while “20/20” slouched a bit, dipping from 0.8 to 0.6.
Elsewhere, “The Blacklist” on NBC continued to grapple with its Friday night timeslot, scoring a 0.6 to match its series low. The CW got some good news, however, with “Whose Line Is It Anyway” picking up back-to-back 0.3’s, improving on last week’s scores by 0.1 for each airing. “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” on the other hand, continued to struggle, with the ninth episode of its final season receiving a 0.1 rating.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.0/5||0.8/4||0.6/3||0.6/3||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||6.64||7.83||3.33||3.27||0.88|
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.
