Friday Ratings: ‘Big Brother: Celebrity Edition’ Wins The Night’s Demo For CBS

Blue Bloods also dipped, scoring a 0.7/4 at 10 PM, but luring in an impressive 7.53 million total viewers. That was actually down a tenth from its Thursday night, but enough to carry the evening. That left the field wide open for CBS, and Big Brother: Celebrity Edition was the winner, scoring a 1.0/5 in demographics and a total of 4.40 million viewers to top the night.
Over at The CW, Dynasty was at 0.2/1 and 0,66, while Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was at 0,1.1 and 0.43, both holding steady from last week.
The Fox Hell's Kitchen finale saw season six returnee Ariel Fox vindicated by taking home the crown, coming back older, wiser and tastier to beat the season 18 competition. The two-hour show had an 0.8/4 and 3.19 total audience, holding its gains from last week over the broadcast's duration.
In the network race, CBS was at 0.9/5 and 5.44 million total viewers to win, topping second place ABC, which came in at 0.7/4 and 4.54 million.” />
NBC saw Blindspot (0.5/3 and 3.49 milliion) and Dateline ( 0.5/3 and 2.79 million) holding serve on their scores, while The Blacklist hit 0.6/3 and 4.2 million, up a tenth.
A two-hour finale for Hell's Kitchen meant there was no room on the Fox schedule for perennial Friday ratings champion Last Man Standing.
Surging newsmag 20/20 was at 0.8/4 and 5.16 million, up a tenth in demos and a million in total viewers. Since expanding to two hours at the start of 2019, 20/20 has been beating NBC's Dateline, marking its longest winning streak in two years. On ABC, the annual rerun of Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown scored a 0.6/3 and 3.30 million.

‘Survivor’ Ratings Dip On Encore Filled Quiet Thanksgiving Eve Primetime

Still, for the numbers counters at CBS, the win was the win as Survivor was the most watched show of Wednesday with 7.09 million viewers, dipping a mere 1.5% from its November 14 airing.
Fox and the CW played encores of the likes of Empire (0.6/3), Star (0.5/2) and the iHeart Radio Music Festival (0.2/1) last night.
The second highest rated show of the night after the Peanuts crew, a wild Tribal Council dominated Survivor took a not unexpected downturn of a tenth from last week when you factor in the holiday and all those mad rushes to airports and freeways. On the other hand, the David Boreanaz led 9 PM show and the Joe Mantegna-led 10 PM series both saw demo rises of 12% and 29% respectively.
The net pulled in a 1.0/5 ratings among adults 18-49 with 6.17 million viewers. Which means that with a line-up of Survivor (1.3/6), SEAL Team (0.9/4) and Criminal Minds (0.9/4), CBS easily won the night overall.
ABC was all repeats except for that Charlie Brown fella and his annual turkey special. Like last year and a number of years before, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving won the holiday eve in the demo. However, once again, the special was down double digits among the 18-49s, with a 12% decline from 2017.
Back for its sixth season and premiering on a new night once again, Hollywood Game Night (0.6/3) had much more than a mere dip from its Season 5 opener of June 22, 2017. In what looks to be a debut low the Jane Lynch hosted series was down 33% from last year’s debut. A two-hour Saturday Night Live (1.0/5) special matched last year’s primetime offering among the 18-49s, though it dropped in share.
As has become the tradition in recent years on the eve of the great American Feast, ABC went with it’s A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1.5/7) special last night, CBS had a primetime of originals and almost everything else was a repeat.
Have a great Thanksgiving!” />
