It was the peacock network versus the alphabet network on Friday night. The peacock network won, as NBC once again rode its athletes and newsmag format to glory.

A rerun of American Ninja Warrior had an 0.6/4 and 2.85 million audience for its two-hour broadcast, holding steady from its prior week. That led into Dateline, which rose a tic to 0.6/4 and a 3.31 million audience to cap NBC’s triumphant night.

ABC was the only other network with original programming. What Would You Do? held at 0.4/3 and 2.46 million, with 20/20 scoring an 0.6/4 and 3.31 million, steady from last week.

The rest of the night elsewhere featured encores, reruns and repeat broadcasts.
