In keeping with its recent streak of dominance, NBC more or less landed on top once again in the relatively quiet Friday ratings this week.
“Dateline” was the highest-rated original broadcast of the night with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 with 3.93 million total viewers, though, this was down slightly from its 0.9 last week. However, an encore episode of “America’s Got Talent” did also grab a 0.7 and an average of 4.08 million total viewers spread out across two hours.
A new episode of “Masters of Illusion” scored a 0.2 once again on The CW as well, while another original episode of ABC’s “What Would You Do?” performed well with a 0.6, but did drop one-tenth from its previous 0.7. “20/20” rounded out the night holding steady with a 0.6 for the second week in a row.

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.
