ABC and CBS tied for the ratings victory on Friday evening, but how did Fox's The Finder and Fringe fare?
The Finder reached a new series low for its second week in its new home, averaging 3.4 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. Following Finder, perennial bubble show Fringe (2.9 million, 0.9) matched a low for its 18th episode of the season.
NBC's Grimm (5 million, 1.6) fared better, jumping three-tenths from the previous week and winning its 9 p.m. time slot opposite Fringe, a Lionel Richie special and What Would You Do. Dateline (4.8 million, 1.1) was also up slightly from last week.
ABC's Shark Tank (5.6 million, 1.6) nearly tied CBS' Undercover Boss (7 million, 1.7) for the 8 p.m. win, but fell just short. What Would You Do (4.8 million, 1.4) and 20/20 (5.2 million, 1.6) followed Tank.
CBS' Boss was Friday's top-rated program by a slim margin. The two-hour Lionel Richie and Friends concert special that followed drew 7.6 million and a 1.4.
ABC and CBS tied for first (1.5), with NBC following (1.3) and Fox at No. 4 (0.9).
The CW aired repeats.
