No 'Captive' audience for a 'Hawaii Five-0' repeat
Friday’s “Hawaii Five-0” was a repeat — so not much need to be said about “Ho’opio (To Take Captive),” except the show is holding its own.
The episode dealt with a missing child, giving Hawaii’s “Maile Alert” a good shot, with a subplot about the rogue relationship between Kono (Grace Park) and her ex-Yakuza beau Adam (Ian Anthony Dale), before they went AWOL to wind up in Vancouver. Old news.
Consequently, the CBS show — normally a viewership leader in its 8 p.m. (9 p.m.) slot, was No. 2 in the hour in viewers (8.05 million), with ABC’s “Shark Tank” (a new installment) attracting 8.10 million viewers with a 2.2 rating in the 18 to 49 demographics. “Five-0” had a 1.0 demo, tied with Fox’s “Enlisted” (new) with its 3.23 million viewers, but behind NBC’s “Grimm” (new), with 1.5 demo and 5.86 million viewers.
Not surprisingly, CBS’ “Blue Bloods” (also a repeat) posted the night’s best audience numbers, 9.86 million, in the 9 p.m. hour (10 p.m. Mainland), contributing to the Eye Network’s No. 1 slot in total viewers. “Shark Tank” had the best demo, 2.2, a season high for the Alphabet Network reality show, with ABC’s “20/20,” a news show, a skosh behind with a 1.9 demo.
