dracula premiere ratings TV ratings: 'Grimm' up,' 'Dracula' premiere not bad for NBCFast National ratings for Friday, October 25, 2013

The “Dracula” premiere wasn’t great for NBC, but it wasn’t terrible either. It held on to most of its “Grimm” lead-in and won the 10 p.m. timeslot in the 18-49 demographic. And good news for “Grimm,” which was up over a million viewers from its Season 2 finale.

The same could not be said for “The Carrie Diaries” premiere, which earned just 837,000 viewers, down 400,000 from last week’s rerun of “Reign.”

CBS won the night with 9.6 million viewers and a 6.1 rating/11 share in households. ABC was next at 6.1 million and a 4.0/7, followed by NBC at 5.8 million and a 3.7/7, FOX at 2.9 and a 1.7/3 and the CW at 773,000 and a 0.5/1.

In the adults 18-49 demo, NBC was the big winner at a 1.6 rating. ABC and CBS tied for second at 1.4, FOX was fourth at 1.1 and the CW fifth at 0.3.
