On Friday night, FOX started with the season finale of Masterchef Junior and it was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It has been a good season for this show but why does FOX keep wasting it on Fridays? At 9pm, Second Chance moved over to the night and collapsed to a 0.7 demo. It was down three tenths in the demo from its last Wednesday airing. Though the swap of Hell's Kitchen and Second Chance was a net loss in numbers for FOX this week, it was still the right call because Wednesdays matter more. On ABC, Last Man Standing was down a tenth in viewers and the demo for its 100th episode. Dr. Ken followed and was down two tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. After troubling retention two weeks ago, it was back to very solid retention out of Last Man. At 9pm, Shark Tank had its best week since November as it was up 1.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. At 10pm, 20/20 was up 1.6 million viewers and two tenths in the demo.

On NBC, the one hour season finale of Undateable was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo with its last episode two weeks ago. This live sitcom experiment has its fans, but I doubt we'll see anymore of this show. It has gotten more than enough chances from NBC and hasn't really broken through. At 9pm, Grimm returned to tie its series low in the demo at a weak 0.8. I have a feeling this might be the final season for Grimm. At 10pm, a Dateline NBC episode about Steven Avery from Making a Murderer was down nine tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Finally on CBS, Undercover Boss was the only new show and it was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Shark Tank (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Second Chance (FOX)
