    Hurry up and cancel Nikita already. There should never be comments made about shows which can’t get more than 0.5. I feel silly that i mentioned it in this comment.

  • glover

    LOL at Nikita. Can’t even get a million viewers. So pathetic.

  • s0303

    still a huge drop for malibu country…i’m sure it and lms are not done dropping…

  • cris

    bye bye CSI: NY
    GO GRIMM!!!!
    Blue Bloods…. whatever

  • Zach

    The CW could have spun Friday as a win for the network if Go On had adjusted down. ‘America’s Next Top Model beats Fall’s Number one new sitcom’ or maybe that would be more up ABC’s PR department’s alley.

    Nikita still looking dead.

  • Networkman

    I do agree that CSI:NY should see a full season of 22 episodes. The network and the producers should want to see it garner over 200 episodes anyway by season end. But I feel The Mentalist should be relocated over to Friday night @9pm midseason in order to get it reaady for next Fall to help Blue Bloods with the night. Golden Boy should either get tried on Sunday after Amazing Race or Tuesday after NCIS:LA.

  • Brian

    Grimm still has excellent ratings. This week is the last episode before the winter hiatus :)

  • JR

    Shark Tank is definitely a solid performer in the demo; would be nice if the total number of viewers was a bit higher (even if that figure isn’t as important).

  • the_troubke_with_the_truth

    @jr. Total viewers isn’t important at all, only demo. Look no further than Harrys Law. Or as I like to call it, the law of Harrys Law. You can have the highest rated program in total viewers on a network but still get cancelled due to the demo.

    Why would Kevin Reilly give a rat’s demo about Supernatural? Fox has been putting genre shows on Fridays since 1993.

  • Mano

    The Troubke first posted that demo explanation in 1986.

  • Tessa

    Why would Kevin Reilly give a rat’s demo about Supernatural?

    The better question would be, why would take a shot at a cult show on a small network when he could use every ratings point he got? Reporters were curious if he was worried about Fringe going head to head with Supernatural and like the class act he is, he said,”What’s Supernatural? There’s your answer.”

    I’m pretty sure when Supernatural kept chipping away at his show’s precious ratings – as every crossover fan who heard his remark decided to DVR Fringe and watch Supernatural live – his light bulb went on.

  • Xymena

    Does anyone know where I can find the ratings for “Primeval: New World”?
    I mean the page, because by the numbers apparently doesn’t have it.
    Only Wikipedia, but I can see there is only one episode, and I know that the other was also aired.

  • Ryan

    “Guys With Kids” repeated better than “Go On”. There’s something interesting.

    The weird thing is, Fringe’s ratings dropped like a rock when it was moved from Tuesdays to Thursdays, across from Supernatural. You’d think he would’ve known about that, being that he’s the network president and all.

    Fringe dropped roughly from 10 million viewers in S1, to 6 million in S2 when it was competing with Supernatural.

    It had almost 6 million at the beginning of S3 after Supernatural was gone, and it then dropped to little over 3 million at the end after it was moved to Fridays against Supernatural again.

    I’ve always said it was a stupid idea to pile all the genre shows on top of each other.

    @Mano

    Why would Kevin Reilly give a rat’s demo about Supernatural?

    Because it was killing his show.

    To sum up the above:

    The first time Fringe was moved against SPN: it dropped from 10 million to 6.

    The second time: it dropped from almost 6 million to 3.

  • Holly

    @Mickey,

    Fringe dropped roughly from 10 million viewers in S1, to 6 million in S2 when it was competing with Supernatural.

    You don’t think that might have something to do with going from a HUGE AI lead-in to a so-so Bones lead in? Or going against Greys and CSI? Or, you know, just a sophomore slump? There are many more reasonable explanations than thinking Supernatural killed it.

  • John A

    LMAO Supernatural killed Fringe? Ridiculous

  • SueP

    @CrimTV

    “Well obviously Supernatural will outlast Fringe because it’s Fringe’s final season and Supernautral began like 3 years before Fringe anyway!”

    My point exactly. Thank you. :)

  • Regina Taylor

    We love Malibu Country-period! Please give it a chance and allow the story to develop.It is doing very well in the ratings.

  • thesnowleopard

    @Mickey
    Gotta go with Holly on this one. Thursday nights at 9pm were a snakepit at the time. FOX threw Fringe in there with the idea that it would be competitive against the likes of CSI and Grey’s Anatomy. And…well…it wasn’t.

    You could make more of a case for Supernatural taking a bite out of Fringe on Fridays. But by then, I think the FOX execs had more or less written the show off except for syndication prospects and were just talking trash about its dominating SPN because FOX usually dominated the CW up to that point. Sure, it backfired on Fringe, at least in terms of buzz, but I don’t think FOX cared at that point, since it really didn’t affect the syndication prospects.

    As for SPN outlasting Fringe, yes, it will. And despite being older. Fringe is one of those unusual shows that make it past two seasons. SPN is one of those rare shows that make it past six seasons. And it may yet turn out to be one of that tiny number that makes it to ten.
