"MasterChef Junior," which crowned its Season 1 winner on Friday, saw a ratings uptick in the 8 p.m. hour. The finale brought in 4.2 million viewers with a 2.5 rating/4 share of households.

CBS took the night with 9.8 million viewers and a 6.2 rating/11 share in households. ABC followed with 6.2 million and a 4.1/7, with NBC next at 4.5 million and a 3.0/5. FOX came in fourth with 3 million and a 1.8/3, with The CW in last place with 927,000 and a 0.6/1.

In the adults 18-49 demo, CBS and ABC tied for first with a 1.5 rating. NBC followed behind with a 1.1, while FOX trailed with a 1.0. Again at the back of the pack, The CW came in last at 0.4
