Friday night brought three unscripted premieres. There weren't really any winners but there was definitely a clear loser and that was on FOX. On ABC, the Eric Stonestreet hosted The Toy Box premiered to 4.1 million viewers and a 0.8 demo. This was just a bit below recent numbers for the comedies in the hour. At 9pm, Shark Tank was new for the first time since February 24 and down a million viewers and two tenths in the demo, but that was a high showing back in February so this isn't bad especially with so many weeks off. At 10pm, 20/20 was up half a million viewers and even in the demo. CBS had their three dramas tie series lows in the demo. MacGyver was even, Hawaii Five-0 was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo, and Blue Bloods was up two tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo.

On NBC, First Dates premiered to 3.8 million viewers and a 0.8 demo, which was almost exactly even with The Toy Box. I'd say this was more of an over-performance because The Toy Box is part of a better lineup and got more promotion. At 9pm, Dateline NBC was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On FOX, Rosewood was even to start the night. While The Toy Box and First Dates had passable performances, FOX's You the Jury was completely ignored with 1.5 million viewers and a 0.4 demo. It'll probably get to keep airing here and it's not too much lower than Sleepy Hollow, but it's still a bad performance. Finally on the CW, The Originals was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Reign was even.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Originals (CW)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: You the Jury (FOX)
