ABC and CBS shared a modest demo victory on Friday night, each averaging a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 with nearly all encores between them.

A new episode of 20/20 (1.1 adults), down a tenth of a point from last week, was the only original on ABC. The network averaged 4.7 million viewers. Though it only aired repeats, CBS topped the night in total viewers with 5.2 million.

News special What We Wasted Our Year On averaged a 1.0 rating with adults 18-49 on NBC, with the network averaging a 0.8 adults rating and 4.1 million viewers for the night.

Fox, which only aired repeats, posted a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 2.2 million viewers.

The series finale of the CW's Nikita was the night's lone scripted original. Averaging a 0.2 rating adults 18-49 and 810,000 viewers, the drama's take was modest but very much in line with recent performances. The CW averaged a 0.2 adults rating and 747,000 viewers for the night.
