CBS takes the win in Households, while NBC settles for a second place and a first place in the key A18-49 demo on a competitive night between the top 3 nets.
Sorry for the delay, here are the ratings for Friday.
CBS finished first for the evening with a 7.1/13 HH rating and a 3.1 A18-49 rating.
NBC followed in a very close second place with a 6.7/12 HH rating, though the Peacock finished just a tad higher in terms of A18-49, with a 3.3 rating in that demo.
ABC finished in third place with a 5.1/9 HH rating and a 2.2 A18-49 rating.
FOX followed in fourth for the evening delivering a 2.6/5 HH rating and a 1.4 A18-49 rating
Staying competitive then, but falling to last place was The CW. On the strength of the premiere of Smackdown the network delivered a 2.6/5 HH rating and a 1.3 A18-49 rating. That was down a little more than 13% from the same frame last season on UPN.
