On The Bleeding Edge: Bleeding Edge TV 591: SCOTTeVEST Puffer Jacket review

After weeks of steady declines, FOX’s Friday night lineup did something unusual: it improved. Terminator and Dollhouse‘s increases gave the network a slightly less embarrassing 4th place finish.

MONDAY 3/9)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  Season premiere. “This season, a new feature in the early weeks is a dance-off between the bottom two couples facing elimination.” Steve Wozniak + moon walk = elimination-proof.
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  “The guys’ trip to San Francisco takes a detour once they learn that actress Summer Glau (appearing as herself) is on their train.” If you don’t already know who is, you probably shouldn’t be watching this show.
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30pm):  “Ted reunites with his college girlfriend (), prompting Lily and Marshall to reveal how much they loathed the snooty woman.” From what I recall, one can easily bond with Prepon over a quick smoke break.
  • Castle (ABC, 10pm):  Series premiere. “Well-known mystery writer Richard Castle is questioned by a fiery detective about a serial killer reenacting murders from his books.” Kinda sounds like Basic Instinct, sans a naked Michael Douglas. Or Sharon Stone. Or Jeanne Tripplehorn.

CBS + Friday + new episodes = Really no reason for anyone else to show up.

Although FOX had the perfect opportunity to exploit CBS’ repeat-filled evening, the network came in a disappointing fourth with the viewers. Terminator‘s even performance was unfortunately offset by Dollhouse‘s second week decline.

Back-to-back shows about strong, good-looking women wasn’t quite enough for FOX Friday. Terminator took a major hit in its new time slot while Eliza Dushku was bested by the Supernanny. In other news, Diane Sawyer’s Appalachian Mountains special gave ABC a rare win in the demos, though CBS was still tops with the viewers.

Despite premiering to 7.7 million viewers, Howie Do It has seen a significant drop in recent weeks. The prank program has lost approximately 3 million viewers since its January debut. Meanwhile, CBS remains strong as always. The network once again took another Friday.

Okay, so CBS was only airing reruns. And ABC only tied in the demos. (CBS was alone with the viewers.) But when was the last time you could remember any other network making a showing on Fridays?

You gotta hand it to Jennifer Love Hewitt. Personal troubles won’t keep that girl down. Ghost Whisperer‘s numbers helped give CBS a double-win on Friday night.

There was a little bit of good news and bad news for NBC this weekend. Although the network saw smaller numbers for Howie Do It‘s second outing, the return of Friday Night Lights did better than the previous time slot holder (Lipstick Jungle). Unfortunately CBS’ dominant lineup made any improvements seem laughable.

This weekend’s premiere of Flashpoint made CBS’ Friday night lineup that much stronger. The series - with the help of Ghost Whisperer - returned to its largest audience yet. Meanwhile, the debut of Howie Do It did better than the group of ladies following it.
