CBS Wins the Night, The CW Puts the Smackdown on Fox 

Scoreboard for Friday Oct 26 CBS NBC ABC CW FOX
Total Viewers (million) 9.37 8.18 6.57 4.61 2.87
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 2.6/8 2.2/7 1.7/5 1.4/5 1.2/4

 
CBS won this ho-hum (in terms of number of viewers) night of television.   Women's Murder Club vs. Moonlight is turning into an interesting competition with the hot maturing policewomen having more viewers than the metrosexual vampire - but the metrosexual vampire won the 18-49 demo.   Fox's Next Great American Band is not resonating with viewers and The CW spends a night out of the cellar.  On to the shows:

    Woo Hoo…I just love Friday Nights with Moonlight on. The week is just too long between shows. Great job CBS for taking a chance on what is turning out to be a fabulous show!

    I am totally in agreement with all of you ML is exciting and Alex is quite the dapper vampire. I liked Jason Dohring on Veronica Mars and he is even better here. Last week his looks when he met Sophia Myles for the 1st time was hysterical. I hope CBS won't be trigger happy as well, although it appears ML is doing fine. My wife and I watch faithfully.

    Moonlight is great. I hope CBS will renew it.

    I just wonder how are the ratings calculated?

    Is my watching counted? I have started watching

    Numbers because of Moonlight lead in. But if that will affect Moonlight's ability to stay on I would much rather being bit by the sexy Vampire.

    I understand Men in Trees is moving to the lead off spot. Wonder what this might do to ML?

    Moonlight is a great romance novel put to screen. The hero is a great looking, sensitive guy and the heroine is feisty. They have obstacles to overcome. This show has all the makings of a cult classic. Please do not cancel!

    I love ML but I know CBS will drop it. Probably for another crappy reality show. Network tv don't care much about it's viewers. Oh well back to Discovery and Science Ch.

    Love this show. I like that Men in Trees comes on the hour before. Gives me something to watch while waiting on ML.

    Looks like ML is loosing in the ratings. Did anyone check out the Futon Critic/s 11/2 ratings. We dropped something like 12% but we still did pretty good in the 18-49 category. Anyone have any input on what this all means.

    Alex OLoughlin and Sophia Myles have the best chemistry on television since Mulder and Scully on the X-Files. The show has alot of potential and will go far if CBS doesn't get nervous. It's important to note that there are few shows in this genre with ML's style and acting chops on TV. CBS should let it go this season and next to let it gain a following. I know in my house we're glued to our seats!

    I completely agree with all the excellent postings about MoonLight. It is indeed one of the best shows out now with truely talanted actors. I have never before been compelled to post for any other show, but I am now. Yes, CBS, KEEP THIS SHOW! It is growing and so is the fan base. It is superb and has so much potential. There is buzz not only on the internet about it, but through general converstations with many people. I make sure to tune in every Friday night as well as record it for later enjoyment to get through the week. Excellent chance on a show that is and will pay off. KEEP MOONLIGHT and order more shows. Complete seasons! MoonLight is the reason I watch CBS on Friday night. Actually, the only reason I watch TV on Friday nights. Plots are good, character development is good, the show is GOOD. It should be picked up and kept.
