Dynasty returned to the air Friday night with a glitzy premiere that confirmed the fate of multiple characters.
Better yet, the 0.2 rating is up a tenth from May's season finale. This series, in particular, has a lucrative deal with Netflix that means The CW pays little to nothing for the show's production because it is being recouped by the deal.
After Dynasty, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's final season got underway with a mere 0.1 rating (0.4 million) in the demo.
This marks a series low for the critically acclaimed comedy series. It's probably a wise decision for the producers to have this season already crafted as the last.
Over on NBC, Blindspot Season 4 kicked off with a 0.5 rating (3 million). As has been the case for most series, the drama dipped from both last season's premiere and average.
However, it was stable with its season finale, so that's a positive. Still, the true test will be whether the show can hold these ratings. Blindspot's fourth season renewal was surprising, to say the least.
Last Man Standing continued on Fox with a 1.4 rating (6.4 million), up a tenth week-to-week, and topping the night in the demo.
The Cool Kids lost another tenth and pulled in a 1.0 rating (4.8). It really needs to stop the bleeding here if it wants to make a case for a back order.
ABC remained out of the competitive loop with comedies Fresh off the Boat (2.8 million/0.5 rating) and Speechless (2.4 million/0.5 rating).
It's bizarre that ABC moved them to the lower-trafficked Friday night, especially when their numbers were already sagging last season.
Child Support (2 million/0.4 rating) and 20/20 (4.2 million/0.5 rating) closed ABC's night with similarly weak numbers.
Over on CBS, MacGyver (6.2 million/0.8 rating) inched up a tenth, while Hawaii Five-0 (7.7 million/0.8 rating) and Blue Bloods (8.2 million/0.8 rating) were steady.
