TV ratings: ABC scores demo wins while CBS takes Friday
It was another solid Friday night for the usual suspects on ABC and CBS, with the triple whammy of "Undercover Boss," "Hawaii Five-0" and "Blue Bloods" snagging the night's most viewers, while ABC pulled wins in the 18-49 demographic with "Shark Tank" and "20/20." Unfortunately, the low debut for FOX's new comedy "Enlisted" wasn't a fluke, with 400,000 viewers dropping out from premiere week -- which wouldn't actually that big of a drop if the number weren't so low in the first place.
CBS won the night overall with an average 10.6 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/11 household share. ABC trailed behind with 6.3 million (4.2/7), while NBC nabbed 5.2 million (3.3/6), FOX got 4.5 million (2.7/5) and The CW trailed with 801,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.
In the 18-49 demo, however, ABC pulled ahead with an average of 1.7 for the night, with CBS earning a 1.5, NBC a 1.3, FOX a 1.1 and The CW a 0.3.
Friday hour by hour:
CBS: "Undercover Boss" (9 million viewers, 5.5/10 households)
NBC: "Dateline: NBC" (7 million, 4.6/8)
