NBC's pilot turned special pulls the night's second best demo performance among scripted programming, while "Grimm" rises double digits to win Friday.

With an average 1.3 adults rating and a dominant 9.4 million viewers for the night, CBS started Friday with an encore of NCIS. A boosted CSI: NY (up 17 percent to a 1.4 adults rating) followed, with Blue Bloods (up eight percent to a 1.4 adults rating) closing the night.
