Friday's #1 TV show for the 2nd week running, ABC's Shark Tank took full control of the 8 o'clock hour in Adults 18-49, increasing its winning advantage over CBS' Undercover Boss finale to 45% (up from a 20% advantage the prior week), while beating Fox's The Finder finale by 45% and doubling the delivery of NBC's Who Do You Think You Are? (+100%).
