FOX’s “Last Man Standing” continued to dominate the Friday primetime ratings this week, and managed to tick up one-tenth from its previous 1.3 to a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49. “The Cool Kids” (1.0), however, slipped again week-to-week, and lost four-tenths of its “Last Man” lead-in. “Hell’s Kitchen” was even with another 0.8.
Elsewhere, ABC’s new TGIF lineup continued to struggle, starting with “Fresh Off the Boat” falling from a 0.6 to a 0.5. It was followed by “Speechless” (0.5) and “Child Support” (0.4), both of which were steady with what they had scored a week ago, while a Melania Trump interview helped “20/20” tick up from a 0.4 to a 0.5.
On CBS, both “Hawaii Five-O” (0.8) and “Blue Bloods” (0.8) held steady week-to-week, and “MacGyver” (0.8) ticked up a tenth to match them.
The season 4 premiere of “Blindspot” (0.5) kicked off the night for NBC, down two-tenths from its season 3 premiere last year and a tenth lower than its overall 2017-18 season average. A 2-hour “Dateline,” meanwhile, scored a 0.8 average, up two-tenths from the 0.6 it had posted last Friday.
The CW’s “Dynasty” (0.2) returned even with its first season average, while the final season of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” premiered with a series low 0.1.

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.
