After a pretty solid four days of premiere week, Friday didn't have as much to be excited about. It was a pretty rock start for CBS as all three of their shows showed big decline. The Amazing Race's move to Friday from Sunday looks to not be nearly as good a move as Undercover Boss. With 5.5 million viewers and a 1.1 demo, it was down nearly a full point from last season's premiere and easily hit a series low. The weak 8pm entry didn't help the dramas that followed as Hawaii Five-0 tied a series low and Blue Bloods came in the demo. Last year, these demos were a pleasant surprise for CBS most weeks but that may not happen again this year. Total viewer count for the dramas was still pretty solid.

Over on ABC, the season premiere of Shark Tank delivered solid numbers. Its average looks a little lower because of the 8pm hour. The 9pm hour (its regular timeslot) was close to series highs. At 10pm, 20/20 was solid, handily beating Blue Bloods in the demo. NBC had a solid number from Dateline NBC as well despite the competition with 20/20 in the 10pm hour. Both Dateline and 20/20 beat every other Friday show except Shark Tank in the demo. On FOX, Utopia was up two tenths in viewers and the demo but it still had a miserable showing.
