A typically quiet summer Friday had CBS and NBC sharing the lead among adults 18-49 in primetime and CBS easily winning the total-viewer race.
“Undercover Boss: Celebrity Edition” had the best 18-49 rating of the night at 0.7. “Dateline” and “20/20” tied for second at 0.6.
ABC’s “Quantico” returned from a week off with a 0.4, down a tenth of a point from its last outing. “What Would You Do?” posted a 0.5. The finale of “Life Sentence” on The CW is currently at 0.3 but will likely come down after factoring out a local pre-emption in New York.

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.
