CBS wins in viewers and 18-49 Demo. CW has more viewers than Fox

Scoreboard for Friday Oct 19 CBS ABC NBC CW FOX
Total Viewers (million) 8.81 7.61 7.44 4.66 3.57
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 2.4/8 1.8/6 2.0/7 1.4/5 1.5/5

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.

    Moonlight increased .05 compared to last week. That in IMO is a significant improvement. I am very pleased with that. Hopefully, it will continue to improve in ratings as the show is getting better with each episode.

    I am relieved that Moonlight did a little better in the ratings. This show is a must watch. Moonlight fans need to continue spreading the word and sending feedback to CBS.

    Moonlight is the only new show that I really like so far. I really hope it gains more audiences. It doesn't matter if you watch the show or not if you're not one of those rating company member you're not really doing any good to the show. To me is stupid to base the show on so many poeple. What about the rest of the country? Guess we just don't count.

    Moonlight has got to be one of the best shows I have watched for quite sometime.and even my husband loves it and he is usually fussy on what show he watches.I just find the characters are so much different then the same old same old type of mystery shows and also I like the way they are bringing in the romance part of it with Mick and Beth! please do not cancel this show!!!
