ABC Friday Prime (8-11pm – 5.7 million and 1.2/4 in AD18-49): Despite airing a repeat “Shark Tank” opposite CBS’ NCAA Basketball Semifinals coverage, ABC finished in a virtual tie with NBC’s all-original lineup in Adults 18-49 (1.2/4 vs. 1.3/4) and tripled Fox’s first-run schedule (+200% – 0.4/1).

“Last Man Standing” (8-8:30pm – 6.2 million and 1.3/5 in AD18-49): At 8pm, ABC’s “Last Man Standing” held steady with its last original 3 weeks ago in Adults 18-49 and ranked as the #1 regular program in the half-hour.

“The Neighbors” (8:30-9pm – 4.0 million and 1.0/3 in AD18-49): In the 8:30pm half-hour, ABC’s “The Neighbors” was up 11% in Adults 18-49 for its 2nd straight week of growth.

A repeat of “Shark Tank” (9-10pm – 5.0 million and 1.2/4 in AD18-49): Building on its lead-in and gaining audience from start to finish during the 9 o’clock hour, ABC’s “Shark Tank” drew its largest repeat audience since the beginning of January (since 1/3/14), topping its last 8 encores (including specials on Tuesday and Sunday). From 8-9pm, the replay “Shark Tank” towered over Fox’s original comedies (Enlisted/Raising Hope) by 233% in Total Viewers (5.0 million vs. 1.5 million) and by 200% in Adults 18-49 (1.2/4 vs. 0.4/1)

The ABC newsmagazine was also the top rated series in the hour for the 5th straight week in the key Adult 25-54 news demo. “20/20” reported on questionable parental behavior.
