This week saw quite a bit of movement in the Friday primetime cable ratings.
Even without “MacGyver,” CBS stood strong on the merits of “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition,” which took home the highest rating of the night with ease. Scoring a 1.0 in adults 18-49, the reality series was followed by middling performances among its fellows on the network. “Hawaii Five-O” dropped from 0.8 to 0.5, while “Blue Bloods” held at 0.6, but neither performance was shocking considering that each aired a rerun.
On ABC, “Fresh Off the Boat” cemented its grip on a 0.7 for the fourth episode in a row, leading into “Speechless” holding onto its gains from last week at 0.6. This is the second consecutive week it has managed to tie against its own season high in the 18-49 demographic. “20/20” chased the half-hour comedies with some investigative journalism to land at 0.8, even with its previous rating.
Elsewhere, NBC’s broadcast of “Figure Skating: U.S. Championship” scored an average of 0.4 across the three-hour period during which it aired. FOX’s set of comedies each aired a rerun, while “Hell’s Kitchen” remained firmly poised at the 0.7 it sank to last week.
Over on the CW, “Dynasty” held at 0.2, but “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” dropped one-tenth back to its more typical 0.1 rating.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.7/4||0.7/4||0.6/3||0.4/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||4.94||3.82||3.12||3.04||0.52|

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.
