At 9 p.m. ET, "Grimm" (1.6/5 in 18-49, 5.2 million viewers overall) maintained 100 percent of last week's 18-49 rating for the show's Friday night season debut, to rank #1 in the hour among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.

From its first half-hour to its second, "Dateline" grew by 17 percent in adults 18-49 (to a 1.4 rating from a 1.2), 19 percent in adults 25-54 (1.9 vs. 1.6) and 13 percent in total viewers (4.8 million vs. 4.3 million).

"Dateline NBC" matched its top Friday 18-49 rating since June 1.

In the 10:30 lead-in to local news, "Dateline NBC" delivered a 6 percent margin of victory in the key news demographic of adults 25-54 (with a 1.9 rating vs. a 1.8 for CBS's second-place "Blue Bloods"). "Dateline" was also #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in the 10:30 half-hour in women 25-54 and adults, men and women 18-49.

At 8 p.m. ET, an encore telecast of "The Voice" (0.9/3 in 18-49, 3.1 million viewers overall) matched NBC's top non-sports 18-49 rating in the time period since May 18 and delivered the networks biggest overall audience for non-sports programming in the hour since that same date.
