Fast National ratings for Friday, October 11, 2013

"Blue Bloods" continues its role as the show in charge on Friday nights, leading CBS to yet another ratings victory. The show stayed above the 10 million total viewers line, blowing away the competition. It was "Shark Tank" that was able to hold onto the lead from the valuable 18-49 demo, though.

Less than impressive was The CW, whose night was anchored by a new episode of "America's Next Top Model." The show managed to grab 1.1 million viewers, running practically even with a rerun of "The Tomorrow People."

"Undercover Boss" and "Hawaii Five-0" helped CBS keep control of the night, blowing away the competition. The eye ended Friday with an average audience of 9 million viewers, with ABC grabbing second place with 5.4 million. CBS was also able to keep the 18-49 edge with a 1.4 rating, against ABC's 1.3.
