- Most of the normal Friday competition filed back into play this Friday. It was mostly an unlucky Friday the 13th for the 9/8c dramas, with only CSI: NY at about average while Fringe and Supernatural tied lows and Grimm hit an outright low. At 8/7c, A Gifted Man came back to earth after its potentially promising surge last week.
- Scripted's loss was generally unscripted's gain, starting with the series finale of long-running Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. It signed off tying its best Friday performance in each hour. Kitchen Nightmares also tied a season high and 20/20 got its second-best Friday ratings this season (third-best overall).
