Fast National ratings for Friday, April 25, 2014.
Yawn. Friday TV ratings are not exciting.
As usual, "Blue Bloods" was Friday's top show overall and carried CBS to an overall win and, as is often the case, "Shark Tank" was Friday's top show in the key demo and carried ABC to victory among young viewers.
There was some minor variation on Friday.
After hitting a low with a 0.8 key demo rating two weeks ago, "Hannibal" added 0.1 for the second straight week, which counts as minor progress. [Note that "Hannibal" dropped 0.1 in Final Live+SD ratings each of the past two weeks, to a 0.7 and a 0.8 respectively.]
After falling last week, The CW's "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" ticked up, though "Hart of Dixie" didn't benefit.
Both the finale of ABC's "Last Man Standing" and FOX's "Kitchen Nightmares" were also up.
On to the numbers...
