In the latest TV show ratings, the two-hour premiere of CBS’ Come Dance With Me on Friday night averaged barely 2 million viewers and just a 0.2 demo rating.
NBC’s Dateline led Friday both in total audience (with 4 million viewers) and in the demo (with a 0.5 rating). Opening the network’s night, the already-renewed The Blacklist (2.9 mil/0.3) was steady.
The CW’s Charmed (330K/0.1) slipped to its second smallest audience of the season; fellow “bubble” drama Dynasty (260K/0.0) similarly lost viewers.
Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2 mil/0.4) was down sharply in the demo week-to-week, ceding the crowd to NBC’s Dateline.
Elsewhere, ABC’s Shark Tank (3.5 mil/0.4) dipped.
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!
