Shark Tank Kevin Hart

In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s Shark Tank featuring guest shark Kevin Hart on Friday drew 4.3 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, up sharply from its last airing to mark season highs and tying 20/20 (4.6 mil/0.7) for the nightly demo win.

Over on CBS, Undercover Boss opened Season 11 with 3.7 million viewers and a 0.5 rating — drawing a smaller audience but steady in the demo vs. S.W.A.T.‘s fall averages in the time slot (4.9 mil/0.5). Leading out of that, Magnum P.I. (5.1 mil/0.4) and Blue Bloods (5.8 mil/0.4) both dipped — though the latter of course copped Friday’s biggest audience.

Elsewhere, Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2.2 mil/0.6) was up, The CW’s Nancy Drew (460K/0.1) added some eyeballs, and NBC’s women’s figure skating coverage averaged 2.3 mil/0.2.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
