Friday Ratings: CBS Takes Another Friday

Although CBS’ lineup faced two season finales on ABC, the network’s numbers actually improved. CBS almost doubled what its nearest competitor did with the viewers.

Friday Ratings: FOX Continues to Wilt

At this point, no one-two combination could possibly help FOX’s Friday. The network’s recent attempt to pair Prison Break with Dollhouse resulted in dismal numbers.

Friday Ratings: Prison Break Has Quiet Return

Prison Break‘s long absence did not make the heart grow fonder. After months off the calendar, the retiring series returned to a new day and disappointing numbers. CBS’ slate of repeats wound up winning the night in viewers while ABC placed first in the demos.

Friday Ratings: Terminator Ends Quietly

Although it was only listed as a season finale, The Sarah Connor Chronicles most likely ended its entire run on Friday. Despite impressive numbers after its initial debut, the series closed with only 3.6 million viewers.

Friday Ratings: Flashpoint Tops Slow Evening

On an evening with no basketball games and a Ghost Whisperer repeat, Flashpoint came off strong. (At least, when compared to most of the programs out there.)

Friday Ratings:  CBS Down But Still on Top

Although CBS didn’t see Ghost Whisperer-sized numbers, the network’s sports coverage did rally enough viewers to topple the competition.

This Week on TV (3/23-3/29)

In the Motherhood

(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/23)
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Amy gives birth to her son and has a difficult time adjusting to life as a mom.” Unfortunately for her, society is no longer interested in single mothers of one child.
  • Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm):  “Lily and Rufus make lists of their past lovers.” I think even Gossip Girl would qualify that as TMI.
  • Animal Cops: Phoenix (Animal, 10pm):  “A skunk gets trapped in an elevator shaft.” Well that stinks.
  • Table for 12 (TLC, 10pm):  Series premiere. “Betty Hayes, mother of three sets of multiples (twins, twins, sextuplets), is sent to the spa on her birthday, while the rest of the family plans a special celebration at home.” Great. More stuff for her to clean up later.

Friday Ratings: Signs of Life for Dollhouse, Terminator

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.

Kings

(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)

 

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.
