Fast National ratings for Friday, February 13, 2015.
Everything was the same as usual on Friday, with “Undercover Boss” rising in viewers to help CBS sweep the night overall, but “Shark Tank” single-handedly giving ABC the win among young viewers.
Friday's variations included a down week in all measures for “Hawaii Five-0” and odd down-in-the-demo-but-up-overall nights for “Undercover Boss” and “Grimm.” FOX's 'Glee” was up a hair in all measures.
And on NBC, the season finale of “Constantine” was flat among young viewers and rose the tiniest amount overall.
Oh and The CW aired “Safety Not Guaranteed,” which proved that The CW's audience is more interested in “Hart of Dixie” than quirky indie sci-fi movies. Go figure.
On to the numbers…
Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 1.3 rating for Friday night, edging out CBS' 1.2 rating in the key demographic. NBC averaged a 1.0 key demo rating for third. FOX's 0.7 key demo rating and the 0.2 key demo rating for The CW followed.
