NBC’s Grimm scared up good numbers with its Season 3 premiere, drawing 6.1 million total viewers and a 1.8 demo rating in the 9 o’clock hour — up from its year-ago Friday time slot premiere (5.3 mil/1.6), its most recent Friday airing (4.9 mil/1.3) and its Season 2 finale (5 mil/1.7), which aired on a Tuesday.

Leading out of that, Dracula‘s debut — which TVLine readers gave an average grade of “C+” — bled a few viewers but demonstrated full demo retention, with 5.3 mil and a 1.8 rating, topping the 10 o’clock hour in the latter measure. NBC notes that Dracula is the second-highest rated Friday drama premiere on any network in three years (since Blue Bloods).

Over on The CW, The Carrie Diaries returned to 840,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating, down from its series debut (1.6 mil/0.6), its freshman finale (1 mil/0.4), Nikita‘s year-ago premiere in the time slot (1 mil/0.4) and Top Model‘s most recent performance in Friday’s lead-off position (1.5 mil/0.6).

CBS’ Undercover Boss (8.6 mil/1.6) dipped two tenths in the demo, while Hawaii Five-0 (9.3 mil/1.4) and Blue Bloods (11 mil/1.3) both held steady.

ABC’s Shark Tank (7.3 mil/2.0) rose 20 percent in audience (to an all-time high for a regular telecast) and matched last week’s season-high rating. Fox’s MasterChef Junior (3.9 mil/1.4) ticked up a tenth.
