Fast National ratings for Friday, April 17, 2015.
The season finales for "Last Man Standing" and "Cristela" were both down from last week's episodes and "Shark Tank" remained on the low side, but ABC still ruled Friday both overall and in the key demographic.
The combination of a low-ish two-hour block of "The Amazing Race" and a "Blue Bloods" repeat allowed ABC to take CBS' normal overall crown.
Friday's big notable was the launch of a new CW programming block. "Cedric's Barber Battle" got off to a weak start and probably hampered the return of "Whose Line Is It Anyway." The new drama "The Messengers" drew a reasonably big audience by CW Friday standards and got an encouraging bump at the half-hour.
