Friday series are judged on a much more lenient curve, but that does not change the fact that ABC is having considerably better luck with sitcoms in the same 8 p.m. hour. Last Man Standing and the surprisingly robustDr. Ken, each averaged a steady 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 at 8 and 8:30 p.m. respectively.
Combined with Shark Tank, which also nabbed a 1.3 rating in the key demo, ABC locked another demo win for the night.
CBS' block was steady as ever, with a new Amazing Race (1.1 adults), Hawaii Five-0 (1.0 adults) and Blue Bloods (1.1 adults).
