CBS continues its successful Friday streak -- led by the just canceled "Medium," which experienced a slight raise in the ratings this week. Also notable was NBC's TV Movie "Harmony: A Film Inspired by the Prince of Wales," which debuted to mediocre ratings despite the current renewed interest in the Royals' personal lives.

CBS averaged 9.6 million viewers and took a 6.1 rating/11 share of households for the night. ABC was second with 5.3 million and a 3.5/6. NBC came in third (4.0 million, 2.7/5).  FOX was in fourth (3.0 million, 1.8/3) and the CW came in fifth (2.3 million, 1.4/3).

ABC bested CBS with a 1.6 in the key demo. CBS (1.5), The CW (1.0), NBC (0.9) and FOX (0.9) followed.
