NBC’s steady The Blacklist (3.04 mil/0.4), meanwhile, delivered Friday’s biggest audience (barely topping a Blue Blood rerun’s 2.95 mil).

Over on ABC, Luke Wilson’s Emergency Call returned to 2.9 mil and a 0.3, up in viewers from last few fall outings (which led out of a little show called Dancing With the Stars).

Leading out of another Charmed rerun, The CW’s Dynasty (230K/0.0) added a few eyeballs week-to-week while maintaining a goose egg in the demo.

These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Kids, ask parents before calling.
