Flash Forward


Update: full details now posted.

Based on the always very preliminary metered market ratings  ABC’s FlashForward won the 8pm hour with a 7.6/13 (household rating/share), besting Survivor: Samoa (6.0/10) by over 25%

FOX’s Bones had a 5.6/9, but Fringe (3.6/6) wasn’t as lucky at 9pm facing off against Grey’s Anatomy & CSI (both with (9.9/16 between 9pm to 10pm).  Fringe is down from last week’s 4.8/8 in the early metered markets.

Update: The Mentalist had a 10.0/16 at 10pm, and Vampire Diaries had a 2.4/4 (less than the premiere had, but 1/10th higher than last week.

It’s not possible to accurately convert the preliminary household ratings into viewers and demographic viewing, but all signs point to a very decent opening for FlashForward and lower numbers from Fringe than it got last week.  By comparison, last week Survivor: Samoa had a 6.1/10 in the early metered markets and wound up with 11.5 million and a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating in the fast national overnight numbers.   We’ll see those fast nationals for last night within a couple of hours, and will post the full night’s details with viewer and adults 18-49 rating in our normal overnight post once the information is available.
