CBS preempted a MacGyver encore at 8 in favor of a Big Brother clip show (1.4). It easily crushed the competition and was only a tenth of a point off from its last Friday airing back in July. The powerhouse reality series led into drama repeats (0.5/0.5). 

ABC's What Would You Do? (0.7) was steady with its last original and up a tenth from last week's repeat. It led out of a Shark Tank encore (0.7) and into an original 20/20 (0.7). The latter rose a tenth from last week. 

FOX had inflated repeats (0.7/0.7) that will most likely adjust down after finals.

NBC had an AGT encore (0.7) leading into Dateline (0.8). The latter rose a tenth and beat 20/20 head-on. 


The CW had its normal helping of 0.2s with a mix of magic show repeats and originals.
