TV Ratings: Repeats lead Friday night, 'Nikita' finale weak

By Kyle Johnson,

Though there was some new content on Friday night, it was repeats that led the way for networks.

CBS managed to draw in the most viewers at 5.2 million but tied with ABC in the important 18-49 demographic with a 1.0 rating, reports HitFix. An encore of Undercover Boss drew a 0.9 rating, while a repeat of the Garth Brooks: Live From Las Vegas special garnered a slightly higher 1.0 rating in the demo.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC came in second in viewers with 4.7 million and actually aired a new 20/20 program, which was down from last week at a 1.1 in the demo. The network started the night off with repeats of Last Man Standing and The Neighbor, which drew a 0.7 rating, and Shark Tank did little better with a 1.2 in the demo.

NBC came in third with 4.1 million viewers and a 0.8 in the 18-49 demographic. The network's special What We Wasted Our Year On didn't entice viewers and only earned a 1.0 rating. Fox had only reruns for the evening and managed a 0.5 in the demo and 2.2 million viewers.

The finale of CW's Nikita was on par with previous finales, and the network averaged 747,000 viewers and a 0.2 in the demo.
