TV Ratings: 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Shark Tank' season highs lead Friday split
Fast National ratings for Friday, November 21, 2014.
CBS also got a boost from the biggest "Hawaii Five-0" audience since March. We'll pretend it's The Carol Burnett Effect.
It was also a season high in viewers for "Shark Tank," which tied its season high in the key demo, despite the absence of a Carol Burnett guest appearance.
On to the numbers...
