CBS continues to dominate Friday nights with their lineup of “A Gifted Man,” “CSI: NY” and “Blue Bloods.” ABC had a nice bump over last week’s numbers by moving “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to Fridays and combining that with the “20/20” broadcast of Mariah Carey’s twins and Bernie Madoff’s former daughter-in-law.

CBS grabbed 10 million viewers and a 6.4 rating/11 share in households for the night, finishing well ahead of NBC ABC (6.2 million, 4.1/7), (3.3 million, 2.3/4), FOX (2.6 million, 1.6/3) and The CW (1.8 million, 1.1/2).

CBS and ABC tied for the adults 18-49 demographic title with a 1.6 rating. FOX and NBC tied for third with 0.9 and The CW brought up the rear at 0.7.
