NBC continued its easy streak of dominating the Friday night primetime ratings.
“Dateline,” in particular, was the strongest broadcast of the night, picking up a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and attracting 3.37 million viewers. This was one-tenth of a point higher than its rating last week, when it was watched by 2.87 million viewers in the finals. NBC’s other heavy-hitter was a rerun of “American Ninja Warrior,” which came in with a 0.5 to help secure the network’s position at the top.
On CBS, “Love Island” slipped a bit from its performance on Thursday, falling from 0.6 to 0.4. The network also aired reruns of “Hawaii Five-O” and “Blue Bloods,” each of which landed at 0.3. On ABC, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” recovered a bit from the damage it suffered last week, rising from 0.3 to 0.4, while a rebroadcast of “The Last Days of John F. Kennedy Jr.” brought in an additional 0.3.
The remainder of the night’s programming consisted of reruns.

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.
