    either the original table was wrong, or blue bloods gained 3 million viewers in the finals haha…but that seems normal levels.

    PUT good wife at 9pm!!

  • Starship

    Grimm is the highest rated show on Friday, yay!

  • John A

    A repeat of X Factor beat a new Fringe. That is bad.

  • rob60990

    Wish Shark Tank would have adjusted up.

    X Factor repeat beat a new Fringe. haha. :D

  • John A

    Grimm is a weird show. It got mid 1.s on mondays and it returned to friday the same.

  • Pat

    doesnt matter, haters. final season ftw. GO FRINGE!!!

  • Brandy

    Top Model udjusted up yess!

  • SarahL

    Grimm held firm. Nice.

  • halloween

    terrible for everything

  • JD

    Who the f cares if X Factor beat Fringe, besides weirdos who are amused by poor ratings of great shows? (Rob and John, all the time, basically)

  • John A

    Im not amused by fringe crap ratings. I like the show and would like the show to rate better.

  • BobbyDazzler9876

    @JD

    What connection is there between Fringe and “great shows”? … zero

    @Pat

    Fringe fans saying the ratings don’t matter are forgetting that if it gets bad enough FOX could still pull the rest of the episodes and just let the remainder go out on DVD. Ratings always matter.

  • John A

    Fox wont pull fringe. Ratings wont be so bad that they will do that. Maybe if it falls to 0.6 but that wont happen.

  • Matt

    There are only 12 episodes of Fringe….Wow there are only 12 episodes of Fringe :( Sadness. Either way, it’s not getting pulled. Stop saying it. People need to get over the fact that Fox renewed it for a final season.

  • DryedMangoez

    Go Grimm!

  • Matt

    What will likely happen is Fox will burn them off if they get too bad and air 2 episodes back to back on erratic schedules for 6 weeks. I doubt that will happen, but regardless, every single episode of Fringe will be aired.

  • BobbyDazzler9876

    @John A

    Considering it dipped to 0.9 last year and the premiere this season is down 0.4 points on the last, scoring 0.6 or 0.7 isn’t impossible.

  • John A

    Still when has a network not aired a show final season when it was announced?

  • TGS

    @BobbyDazzler9876

    “What connection is there between Fringe and “great shows”?”

    Hey, just because you weren’t smart enough to get it….

    “Fringe fans saying the ratings don’t matter are forgetting that if it gets bad enough FOX could still pull the rest of the episodes and just let the remainder go out on DVD. Ratings always matter.”

    There is absolutely no chance that will ever happen. Wish all you like. You see, the ratings don’t actually matter. If they did Fringe wouldn’t have come back for a third season much less a fifth. Fact of the matter is Fox knows they have a great show that caters to a select audience and they want to allow it to end properly. I wouldn’t expect you to understand.

    @TGS
    I wouldn’t expect you to understand.

    That you think you’re smarter than other people because you watch a low-rated TV show?

    Nope, we all understand that.
