It was a busy night of Fall premieres in the Friday ratings last night.
CBS led with the “Blue Bloods” premiere scoring a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49, which was just two-tenths less than the 1.3 it had premiered with last year. Also on the network, “MacGyver” returned with a 0.8, noticeably lower than the 1.7 its series premiere scored in 2016, but steady with its season finale from earlier this year.
“Hawaii Five-O” raked in a 1.0 with its premiere, which was three-tenths lower than last year, but also in line with its most recent season finale.
In addition, “Hell’s Kitchen” (0.8) returned on FOX three-tenths down from last year and the 1.1 its last season finale had scored, while “The Exorcist” (0.5) was significantly down from its premiere last year and its 0.7 first season average.
On ABC, “Marvel’s Inhumans” made its long-awaited premiere and raked in an average 0.9 rating spread out across two-hours with 3.78 million viewers. “20/20” rounded out the night for ABC and took a minor hit, falling from its previous 0.7 to a 0.6 this time around as well.

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.
