Despite a valiant effort on the part of ABC’s reality hit “Shark Tank,” a brand-new episode of “Blue Bloods” helped snag the nightly win for CBS. The CW’s “The Carrie Diaries” and “Nikita” were down even lower from last week’s not-so-stellar numbers, while FOX’s “Raising Hope” dipped ever-so-slightly.

CBS pulled in an average 8.97 million viewers and a 5.7 rating/10 household share to win the night. ABC’s “Shark Tank” success landed the alphabet network in second place, with 6.1 million viewers and a 3.9/7. NBC came in third with 5.25 million viewers and a 3.4/6. FOX trailed with 2.76 million viewers and a 1.7/3, while The CW lagged behind with 704,000 viewers (0.5/1).

CBS might’ve pulled in more total viewers, but ABC won the night in the adults 18-49 demo with a 1.5 versus CBS’ 1.3. NBC came in a close third with 1.2, while FOX snagged a 0.7 and The CW eked out a 0.2.
