From 8-9:01 p.m. ET, the networks of NBCUniversal televised "Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together" as sustaining programming and ratings will not be included in nightlong, weeklong or season averages.
From 9:01-10 p.m. ET, "Grimm" (1.8/5 in 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall) finished within 0.2 of last week's season-high Friday rating (and within 0.1 of last week's 1.9 in these prelim fast-affiliate ratings). In total viewers "Grimm" is running within 7 percent of last week's season-high 6.1 million average. "Grimm" is #2 in the time period among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49 and other key demos.
These are "Grimm's" second-best Friday results in 18-49 and total viewers since January 20, 2012, behind only numbers from one week ago.
Keep in mind that last season, "Grimm" originals added an average 69 percent to these next-day "live plus same day" 18-49 ratings when Nielsen issued "live plus seven day" results.
At 10 p.m. ET, "Dateline NBC" reported a 1.1/3 in 18-49 and 3.8 million viewers overall.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 0.7/3; "Late Show," 0.6/3; "Nightline," 1.0/4; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.8/4 with an encore.
At 12:35 a.m., "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.5/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.4/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.6/4 in 18-49) beat "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).
