Once again, it was NBC that landed at the top of the Friday primetime ratings this week.
“Dateline” was the highest-rated broadcast of the night with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, even with what it had scored the week before. Meanwhile, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” rerun led both the 8 and 9 p.m. hours with a 0.6 average across its 2-hour run time.
On CBS, the network’s “Sunday’s Best” special, celebrating “40 Years of CBS Sunday Morning” raked in a 0.4 and 3.41 million viewers for itself. “TKO: Total Knock Out,” however, took a minor hit this week – falling one-tenth from the 0.4 it had scored last Sunday to a 0.3 this time around.
Elsewhere, the CW’s “Masters of Illusion” was steady with another 0.2, and ABC’s “20/20” maintained a 0.6 for the second week in a row. All of the night’s other broadcasts were 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.
