CBS’ The Amazing Race returned on Friday to 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.2 demo rating (per finals), up a tick from both its year-ago opener and its spring cycle’s Friday premiere.
Leading out of that, Hawaii Five-0‘s Season 6 opener (8.3 mil/1.0) was down from both the drama’s previous premiere (8.9 mil/1.3) and finale (8.4 mil/1.1), hitting a series low in the demo.
Blue Bloods capped the Eye’s night with 10.1 mil/1.3, up a tenth from its previous premiere (10.9 mil/1.2) and matching its May finale (11.3 mil/1.3) in the demo.
Over on ABC, Last Man Standing (6.3 mil/1.1) was down two tenths from its previous premiere but up a tick from its April finale. Leading out of a Muppets pilot rerun, Shark Tank returned to 6.1 mil/1.7, down 17 percent from last fall’s two-hour premiere.
