Friday night had a nice bounce for the ABC sitcoms with their 90s guest stars. Patricia Richardson guest starred on Last Man Standing and it was up 2.6 million viewers and half a demo point. The demo is the best since March 22, 2013 and the viewer total is the best since season one - way back on January 17, 2012. Cristela had Roseanne as a guest star and it was up 2.1 million viewers and half a demo point for a series high in viewers and the best demo since the premiere. These guest stars were well-promoted so these numbers probably won't stay high, but it's a nice start to 2015 for these bubble shows. At 9pm, Shark Tank was up seven tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo while 20/20 was on par with the last time it followed a new Shark Tank

The bad trend for Glee last spring did not perk up for its final season. Banished to Fridays, the show delivered next to nothing with 2.4 million viewers and a 0.7 demo. FOX made a big mistake renewing this show for two seasons and they're stuck with it this spring. It has gone from being one of the buzziest shows with the highest demo to a show that has been completely forgotten. Finally, CBS had a nice night as well. Undercover Boss was down even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Hawaii Five-0 was up a million viewers and a tenth in the demo for season highs. Blue Bloods had its 100th episode and it was up 1.3 million viewers but even in the demo. The viewer total was tied for the best viewer total since the series premiere.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Last Man Standing (ABC)
