It was a good night on CBS for dramas, with “MacGyver” easily leading the pack in its time slot among non-sporting events. It also ticked up a full one-tenth of a point in the 18-49 demographic, landing at a 0.8 in a stronger position than it held for its two previous airings. “Hawaii Five-O” held its gains from the most recent new episode, at the same 0.8 rating, while “Blue Bloods” slipped, scoring the same as the two dramas that aired before it with 0.8, down from its previous 0.9.
“Child Support” aired both a new episode and a re-run, each of which did better than the show’s previous airing, scoring 0.5s. This was an increase of one-tenth of a point, a wave which “20/20” rode to 0.6, up from the 0.5 it received two weeks earlier. Although ABC’s scripted comedies were absent, the network didn’t appear to suffer.
On NBC, “Dateline” held its 0.5 rating, as did “Midnight, Texas” at a 0.4, but “Blindspot” managed to rise from 0.4 to 0.5. The gains for “Blindspot” were more in line with the series’ previous scores.
On The CW, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” matched the 0.2 its last episode adjusted up to in the finals. “Dynasty” similarly stayed at a 0.2, the same as its previous rating.

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.
