On Friday, CBS #1 in the U.S. ITV #1 in the UK. Nine Edges Seven in Australia.
Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

For Friday, February 13, 2015 (Posted on February 14, 2015)
The Tiffany Network had the power on Friday as it easily finished #1 in prime time. At 8P, ‘Undercover Boss’ pulled in 8.50 million viewers to begin the evening. But it was at 9P, when ‘Hawaii Five-0’ lit up the evening with one of its best episodes in years, featuring the capture of a an African war lord that could lead to an arc every bit as tempting as those years of Wo Fat, drew 9.535 million viewers and was absolutely a Must See TV ON DEMAND episode. At 10P, the cornerstone of Paley’s World on Friday, ‘Blue Bloods’ drove the point across: you can’t beat CBS on Friday. In an episode, titled ‘Power Plays’ that put all of the Reagan’s in play as Dan Heyada guest starred as a former criminal in the Witness Protection program of the U.S. Marshall; Frank battled with the Mayor; Danny helped out sister Erin in a fascinating journey back to Iowa and Jamie again finds himself conflicted with his partner which has to lead to the conclusion everyone understands is coming, drew 11.255 million viewers. It was again Must See TV ON DEMAND. Friday on CBS is appointment television.
The Alphabet Network finished in second place well behind the leader. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Be My Valentine Charlie Brown’ drew 4.79 million viewers. At 9P, ‘Shark Tank’ drew 7.67 million viewers as the top Disneyville show, more than 2 million viewers less than the leader in this time slot. At 10P, ’20/20′ drew 5.465 million viewers to conclude the evening.
The Peacock Network was still whirling from Thursday debacle. And it did no better on Friday. At 8P, ‘Constantine’ drew 3.31 million viewers. At 9P, ‘Grimm’ led the 30 Rock pack as it drew 4.71 million viewers. At 10P, ‘Dateline’ pulled in 4.435 million viewers finishing nearly 7 million viewers behind ‘Blue Bloods’. Sarnoff’s Staff simply was not competitive.
The Animal Network of Broadcast just didn’t have the ammo to confront on Friday. At 8P, ‘The World’s Funniest Fails’ drew 2.40 million viewers. And at 9P, one of the final episodes of ‘Glee’ finished with 1.856 viewers, finishing well below the Mendoza Line.
The Little Network That Couldn’t was DOA on Friday. At 8P, the bright suits at LNTC simply presented a movie, ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ and it simply died with an average of 745,000 friends and family and CW suits. Turn off the lights. This party is nearly over.
For The Record
CBS again finished #1 on Friday by nearly doubling the field with 9.76 million viewers. ABC finished a distant #2 with 5.87 million viewers. NBC finished further behind as #3 with 4.13 million viewers. FOX finished a mile behind with 2.12 million viewers. And The CW became a cable network as it averaged 745,000 friends and family on Friday.
