TV Ratings: 'Hannibal' halts slide, 'Rake' falls in new slot

By Kyle Johnson,

No matter the time slot for freshman series Rake, it keeps losing viewers, while Hannibal finally halted its Friday night slide in its third episode.

ABC topped all the other networks on the night with a 1.6 in the 18-49 demographic and 6.32 million viewers. HitFix reports the network started the night off with repeats of Last Man Standing and The Neighbors. Shark Tank was steady with a 1.9 in the demo as was 20/20.

CBS lost out in the demo with a 1.4 rating, but won in viewership with 9.72 million viewers. Undercover Boss saw improvement over last year in its finale with a 1.3 demo rating. Hawaii Five-0 was steady with a 1.4 in the demo, while Blue Bloods dipped slightly to a 1.5 rating.

According to Deadline, NBC averaged a 1.2 in the demo and 4.8 million viewers. Dateline slipped to a 1.2 in the demo, while Grimm was up slightly on the night with a 1.6 in the 18-49 demo. Hannibal stopped its slide and saw a slight increase to 0.9 in the demo.

Fox struggled in the ratings with a 0.5, barely edging the CW's 0.4 in the demo, and 1.73 million. Rake continued its headlong dive towards cancellation with a new low of a 0.5 in the demo, while Enlisted also dipped to a 0.6 in the demo. The cancelled Raising Hope stayed even with a 0.5 in the demo.
