Friday Ratings: Mediocre Debut for Dollhouse

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.

Friday Ratings: Friday Night Lights Scores Higher Than Lipstick Jungle

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.
