The first Friday in September continued the trend of quiet evenings in the primetime ratings.
At 8 p.m., the top broadcast was a rerun of “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC, which racked up a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.85 million viewers. This was even with its score last week, give or take 0.50 million viewers. NBC also won the top slot for 10 p.m., as well, when a new episode of “Dateline” built on its 0.5 from last week to rise to 0.6. The series also saw an increase from 2.63 million viewers (in its final) to 3.31.
Beyond NBC, ABC was the only network with any original programming for the night. “What Would You Do?” remained consistent at its perpetual 0.4, while “20/20” continued at 0.5. The latter series had been locked in a dead heat with “Dateline” last week, so by holding at its previous score, it failed to compete for the top spot at 10 p.m.
Aside from a rare triumph of the CW’s “Masters of Illusion” rebroadcast over a “BH90210” encore on FOX, there was little else worth noting. The rest of the night’s programming consisted entirely of repeats.

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.
