On ABC, Last Man Standing (1.2) and Dr Ken (1.2) both stayed steady with last week's prelims, and are proving to fit like a glove. I think both get renewed, unless ABC can't get Tim Allen back and wants to dissolve the multi-cam block, then Dr Ken gets unlucky. Following the Middle-Goldbergs of Friday night was Shark Tank (1.6) which although still weaker than previous seasons has risen over its past several weeks. 20/20 (1.3) managed to win the hour, though it is down considerably from last week's special, but that's to be expected.

On CBS, The Amazing Race (1.1) dipped a tenth from last week, Hawaii 5-0 (1.1) was steady, and Blue Bloods (1.2) gained one. Although The Amazing Race has been relatively steady this season, I have to wonder if CBS will finally retire it. The same goes for Hawaii 5-0. However, Blue Bloods is truly the unsung hero of Friday night and possibly even CBS's strongest 10pm show!

FOX premiered MasterChef Junior (1.3) and World's Funniest (0.8) tonight. The former is down considerably from its winter numbers, but then again it aired on a Tuesday then. The latter is steady with its last six in-season airings. That's SEVEN IN A ROW 0.8s.

NBC continues its Friday night struggle with Undateable (0.7) and Truth be Told (0.6) both struggling beyond return. Grimm (1.0) at least manages to build on those numbers, but I have to wonder if NBC is pleased with that or not. Following was Dateline (1.0), which rose from last week but still can't manage to catch 20/20.

The CW was back to its originally scheduled Friday night this week with a pair of 0.3s out of both Reign and America's Next Top Model. According to my calculations, Reign's ad rate would make it ideal for it to have a 0.39 in order to live up to standards. But again: speculation.
