Viewers Love CBS Tender on Friday
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) Fast National ratings for Friday, May 13, 2005

Two hours of family talking about the Elvis they knew was enough to give CBS the edge on Friday night. The eye network won households with a 7.8/14, well ahead of ABC's 5.5/10. NBC came in third with a 4.9/9, followed by FOX's 2.4/4, UPN's 2.1/4 and The WB's 2.0/4.

CBS kicked off the night with the King's home movies. ABC matched it by spending two hours with "America's Funniest Home Videos," averaging a 4.8/9 from 8 to 10 p.m. NBC received a 4.5/9 for the first half of a two-hour "Dateline" and FOX took a 2.3/5 for the first half of the repeat movie "X-Men." The series finale of "Enterprise" got off to a sluggish start with a 2.0/4, but was still enough to beat The WB's "What I Like About You," 1.6/3 and "Reba," 1.9/4.

At 9 p.m., CBS had the best hour of the night with "Elvis" bringing down a 9.0/16. "Dateline" rose to a 5.0/9, overtaking ABC for second. FOX remained in fourth, while UPN and The WB tied for last place between the final hour of "Enterprise" and "Reba," 2.4/4, and "Living with Fran," 2.0/3.

CBS stayed on top at 10 p.m. with the season finale of "NUMB3RS," 7.4/13. ABC was back in second with "20/20," 7.0/13, and NBC finished the night in third place with "Law & Order: Trail by Jury," 5.4/10.
