Fox’s Last Man Standing (1.1 rating in adults 18-49 demo, 5.95 million viewers in Live+same day) was again Friday’s top-rated show in primetime among adults 18-49, despite slipping a tenth to a season low. Meanwhile, CBS’ Blue Bloods (0.9, 8.56M) — the night’s most-watched show and hitting a demo season high — and Hawaii Five-0 (0.8, 7.86M), along with MacGyver (0.7, 6.23M), helped the network dominate the total viewers metric.
Thanks to Last Man and lead-outs The Cool Kids (0.9, 4.39M) and Hell’s Kitchen (0.8, 2.80M), Fox won the night in the demo. CBS was a tick behind there.
ABC followed in demo and viewership with Fresh Off the Boat (0.7, 3.5M) and Speechless (0.6, 2.6M), both up a tenth to hit/match season highs, followed by Child Support (0.4, 2.36M) and 20/20 (0.5, 3.09M). The latter tied NBC’s Dateline (0.5, 3.21M) in the 10 PM slot in the demo, while Dateline edged it in total viewers.
