Friday night had the series premiere of Enlisted and it bombed as expected. First on FOX though, Bones was even in viewers and down two tenths in the demo. At 9pm, Raising Hope was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last 9pm airing. Then Enlisted premiered and tied the just-cancelled The Assets for the lowest in-season premiere ever. So now three of the five new shows in 2014 have premiered to less than a 1.0 demo. That being said, the writing was on the wall for FOX with this show and its placement. They didn't even give it a preview on Tues or after the NFL or something like that so this is not surprising at all. I do wonder what FOX's expectation was/is for this show. Over on NBC, a Golden Globes special at 8pm was much lower than Dateline NBC usually is. Why does NBC preempt Dateline for these low specials? At 9pm, Grimm was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo as it had more competition and a lower lead-in. At 10pm, Dracula was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. There are only two weeks left for this show.

Over on ABC, everything was up from its last airing in a pretty good Friday night. At 8pm, Last Man Standing was up nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for season highs. This is not a bad showing at all for Friday at 8pm especially considering what some ABC shows are getting during the week. At 8:30pm, The Neighbors was up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best number since the season premiere. At 9pm, Shark Tank was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth the demo. It's one of ABC's stronger shows period right now even with its Friday night slot. At 10pm, 20/20 was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, hitting a season high for a second week in a row. Not airing against Dateline NBC has been great for this veteran newsmagazine. Finally, CBS had rises as well. Hawaii Five-0 was up 1.1 million viewers and a good three tenths in the demo for its best demo since November 15 while Blue Bloods was up a strong 2.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo.
