CBS’ Gayle King/R. Kelly interview special dominated Friday in the demo, scoring a 1.2 rating while drawing 6.6 million total viewers. That marked a significant demo gain versus preempted MacGyver‘s Season 3 average (0.7).

Leading out of that, Hawaii Five-0 (7.2 mil/0.9) and Blue Bloods (8.2 mil/0.9) each ticked up from their latest episodes to match season highs in the demo. Blue Bloods as usual drew Friday’s biggest crowd.
