    Im shocked that Made in Jersey hasnt been pulled. Embarrasing that X factor repeat beat Fringe again.

  • puta

    X Factor Killed the voice!

  • GARebelman

    Boy Fringe is going to leave the air waves with a whimper its getting below 3 million now!

    Shark Tank and Grimm continues to impress.

    Looks like “Fringe” was adjusted down in viewers. But it looks weird to see it in third place in its time slot…

    Overall, the majority of the Friday shows seem to be sliding towards 1.0 or less…
    – CSI: NY
    – Blue Bloods
    – Primetime: What Would You Do
    – 20/20
    – Dateline NBC

    Where are the cable ratings? I am going off the walls waiting for them!

  • Mitchell

    Impressive from shark tank. Shame Grimm wasn’t adjusted up though.

  • danny94

    Yikes at Fringe Total Viewers.

  • Beth

    Sorry, but are we going to get the Live+7 numbers (for 9/17) like last week?

  • Anthony

    X Factor Killed the voice!

    Really something to crow about. My repeat barely beat your repeat of your auditions clip show (the THIRD time they’ve shown each of these auditions, not counting other repeats they may have done.) But hey, gotta take a victory where you can right?

  • Brian

    Grimm is still awesome! Wish it got adjusted up, but maybe next week, they will :)

    what happened Fringe fans? This season must be awful, poor Fox

  • s0303

    it will be interesting to see what happens when grimm and shark tank are up against each other…

  • SJ

    Blue Bloods under 10 million for the first time :( Also, a series low for both it and CSI: NY.

    – 20/20

    WWYD was getting 1.4-1.5 the whole season last year, and 20/20 is actually up 9% from this week last year. Neither are “sliding”.

    CBS needs to move TGW to Friday ASAP!!!! Can MiJ, move Blue Bloods to 8:00, slide CSI: NY back to 9:00, and TGW can air at 10:00. Blue Bloods does awesome and total viewers, and with the family angle, it could become the NCIS of Friday. It should bring in more viewers for CSI: NY, and the local affiliates should love the upper income demos that TGW will deliver to their end of the week newscasts.

    Shark Tank has proven to be a valuable asset for ABC

  • Ram510

    Haha Shark Tank got almost the same rating as DWTS
