I didn't watch last night's Women's Murder Club yet, but it beat the pants off of CBS' Moonlight when it comes to viewers. But this was an odd night where CW had more viewers than Fox! Typically, CBS has more viewers and ABC still wins the 18-49 demo for its shows, but Moonlight with less viewers had a better rating in the 18-49 demo. On to the shows.
Though Gorman loves Gossip Girl, it's Friday Night Smackdown that's his favorite and it continues to be a solid performer for CW in the Friday 8p-10p block. News shows like 20/20 and Dateline appear to be on the outs. Speaking of that, it's not looking great for Internet fan favorite, but low rated Friday Night Lights.
