Fridays might not have been good to Dollhouse or Ugly Betty, but that doesn’t mean the night is like totally bad. Smallville‘s recent two-hour event brought in the program’s best numbers of the season.

MONDAY (2/1)
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “A convicted killer () on death row receives a 24-hour stay of execution after doubt is cast on his guilt.” New evidence suggests he may have been given that girl’s underpants.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10pm):  “A firefighter whose home overflows with his possessions.” That’s just a fire waiting to happen! Oh -  maybe that’s the point.
  • Damages (FX, 10pm):  “Patty and Phil, locked in their bitter divorce battle, find one piece of common ground: their dog.” Phil - if you love the dog, just give it to her. Trust me.

Dexter

Squeezed in between the Golden Globes broadcast and the Oscar nominations is an awards ceremony voted on solely by the actors. (So unlike the People’s Choice Awards, this actually has meaning.)

For the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, we’ll see a lot of the old and just a little bit of the new. Here are some of the noteworthy mentions from this year’s list of television nominees:

  • The Closer, Dexter and 30 Rock lead this year’s pack with three nominations each.
  • Despite no individual mentions, freshman comedies and Glee were both honored in the Best Ensemble category.
  • Samantha Who‘s Christina Applegate received a nomination despite starring in a canceled show.
  • received its first nom—but just for its cast, not for any single actor.

The will air Saturday, Jan. 23 on both TNT and TBS.

(You can find the full list of TV nominees after the jump. Click here for the film nominations.)

Okay, so CBS was in repeats—but I think we’d all accept gifts when we can. A lack of competition helped Friday’s broadcast of Ugly Betty reach its best numbers of the season. Thankfully, the program will be given a new opportunity when it starts airing on Wednesdays in January.

Do viewers watch programs they know are being canceled? Based on Dollhouse‘s ratings last night, probably not. The FOX drama returned this weekend to series-low ratings. Elsewhere, fans of Ugly Betty did their best to keep that ABC comedy from the chopping block.

  • (8.2 million, 1.9/7 in 18-49) had the best numbers of the night.
  • Muppets Christmas: Letters To Santa (1.1/4) entertained 4.3 million for NBC.

A night of repeats didn’t help Ugly Betty‘s long-term survival chances this weekend. Despite a slate of originals for ABC, the network lost out to CBS in viewers. Meanwhile, FOX - thanks to an animated movie - actually won in the demos.

Would ABC be smart to air cartoons every Friday night? The weekend’s broadcast of Shrek the Third helped give the network a rare tie in the 18-49s. CBS, though, was still a solo winner with the viewers.
