On Friday night, FOX had some success by flipping Raising Hope and the new Enlisted. But first at 8pm, Bones was up seven tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for a Friday high. I have to admit, I was wrong about my criticism for FOX for moving Bones to Friday. It has helped a long-troubled hour on the schedule for FOX and Almost Human has performed better than expected in its place on Mondays. At 9pm, Enlisted moved to 9pm and jumped 1.2 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for a series high in week three. While still low, this is a major improvement over recent weeks. It's probably not enough in the long run but at least it's an acknowledgment by FOX that they needed to do something to help this show. At 9:30pm, Raising Hope was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo from last week, when it aired at 9pm.

On ABC, Last Man Standing was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while The Neighbors was up a tenth in viewers but down a tenth in the demo to tie a series low. At 9pm, Shark Tank was up eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series high. At 10pm, 20/20 was up 1.7 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. Not only is it a season high, the demo is 20/20's best in its regular timeslot since March 30, 2012. ABC may be struggling on most nights but a 2.2/1.9 demo from 9-11pm is pretty good for any night, not just Friday. Finally on NBC, Dateline NBC was up three tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo while Grimm was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, the season finale of Dracula was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It's unlikely this show will come back but it's a cheap option for NBC that apparently does well overseas so stranger things have happened.
