It was a pretty mundane Friday night with shows near normal levels. Starting on CBS, Undercover Boss was up 1.7 million viewers and two tenths in the demo from its last episode over a month ago. At 9pm, Hawaii Five-0 was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Blue Bloods closed out the night also down a tenth in viewers and the demo. In a season with both Hostages and Intelligence failing, I think both Friday dramas are safe for next season. On NBC, Dateline NBC started off down nine tenths in viewers and even in the demo from its last airing. Why does NBC air specials like last week's Going for Gold when Dateline is always such a reliable option? At 9pm, Grimm benefited from the better lead-in as it was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Dracula closed out the night up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The season finale is next week.

Over on ABC, Last Man Standing started off the night down a million viewers and a tenth in the demo while The Neighbors was down 1.1 million viewers and two tenths in the demo as it seems last week's jump was a mirage for the latter show. At 9pm, Shark Tank was dead even with last week. In the last week, the only ABC shows that did better in the demo than Shark were The Bachelor and Modern Family. At 10pm, 20/20 was down a tenth in viewers but even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Bones was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, Raising Hope was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while week two of Enlisted slipped four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. FOX said they will stick with this show for all 13 episodes but it's hard to see them doing that if it goes any lower. Again though, what did they expect with this timeslot?
