Reel TV Ratings: (Friday) – MacGyver Up After Weeks Of Being Steady

After scoring a 0.8 in the 18-49 demo for weeks, MacGyver ticked up for CBS.

MacGyver was up to a 0.9 demo rating and 7.3 million viewers. This began a solid night on Friday on CBS as Hawaii Five-0 followed with a 1.1 demo rating and 9.1 million viewers. The series was up two tenths week to week and led the night across all the networks in the 18-49 demo. Blue Bloods ended the night with a 1.0 demo score and 9.79 million viewers, up a tenth from last week.

On NBC, Blindspot continued to be steady with a 0.7 demo rating and 3.35 million viewers. NBC has to be happy with its performance, especially on a Friday night.

The ABC lineup was also steady week to week with Once Upon a Time hitting a 0.5 demo rating and 2.41 million viewers while the season (series?) finale of Inhumans was also steady with a 0.5 demo score and  1.95 million viewers.

On The CW, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend remained steady with a 0.2 demo score and 710,000 viewers while Jane The Virgin was up a tenth to a 0.3 demo rating and 710,000 viewers.

On Fox, The Exorcist was down a tenth week to week with a 0.4 demo rating and 1.31 million viewers. I have to add people are sleeping on this show because Friday’s episode was solid television and it’s a shame more people aren’t watching.

Can Friday night maintain this relatively steady numbers? Check back next week for the Friday ratings recap!
