Despite having a great fall the rest of the week, NBC has punted on Fridays all season. That finally came to an end with scripted programming returning to the night. The final season of Grimm started things off at 8pm with a 0.9 demo, which was about the same as last season. It led into the two hour series premiere of Emerald City. The Oz drama seemed like it might premiere better given some online buzz so I'd categorize this as disappointing even though it did build on its Grimm lead-in. It will probably be fractional as soon as next week. FOX premiered its new Friday lineup. Rosewood saw a new series low at 8pm, but it wasn't that far below what it was doing on Thursdays in the fall. At 9pm, Sleepy Hollow tied its series low, also hitting a 0.6 demo. FOX probably shouldn't have expected anything more here.

Despite NBC and FOX having new lineups, it was the ABC and CBS that had nice January returns. On ABC, Last Man Standing soared a million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance since January 9, 2015. I'm not sure what caused this performance but it was a great showing. Dr. Ken was up a million viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since March. At 9pm, Shark Tank was up nine tenths in viewers and a big four tenths in the demo, also hitting a season high. The good vibes kept coming with 20/20, which was up 1.2 million viewers and a big half a demo point. CBS had a good night too although not as ridiculous jumps. MacGyver was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since September 30. Hawaii Five-0 was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo while Blue Bloods was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Finally on the CW, a double pumping of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was in line with recent episodes.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Last Man Standing (ABC)
