Friday, October 12, 2012 ratings — Though Made in Jersey has been cancelled and almost all of the networks had some reruns last night, there was still plenty of original programming. We had new installments of Shark Tank, Fringe, Grimm, CSI: NY, Blue Bloods, Primetime: What Would You Do?, 20/20, and Dateline. For reruns, there was NCIS, The Voice, The X Factor, Arrow, and Beauty and the Beast.
On ABC, the one network to air all originals, Shark Tank started the night with a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.37 million total viewers. That was essentially on par with last week’s installment. That was followed by Primetime with a 1.3 rating (-7% week-to-week change) and 4.67 million. At 10pm, it was 20/20 with a 1.4 rating (+17%) and 4.67 million.
On CBS, a repeat of NCIS drew a 1.2 rating with 7.6 million. A new episode of CSI: NY followed with a 1.4 rating (+17%) and 9.4 million and then, Blue Bloods with a 1.4 rating (+17%) and 10.46 million viewers. With these gains, it seems the CBS schedule may be benefiting from Made in Jersey’s absence.
On NBC, a rerun of The Voice garnered a 1.1 rating with 3.51 million. A new installment of Grimm drew a 1.5 demo rating (-6%) with 4.95 million. It was followed by Dateline with a 1.3 demo rating (0% week-to-week change) and 4.7 million.
On FOX, an encore of The X Factor drew a 0.8 rating with 2.42 million viewers. At 9pm, Fringe attracted a 1.0 demo rating (0% change) and 2.71 million.
And on The CW, we had repeats of Arrow (0.6 in the demo with 2.02 million) and Beauty and the Beast (0.4 rating with 1.42 million).
What do you think? Do you think the ratings for Fringe and Grimm have settled into these levels for the season? Should The CW keep airing repeats and dump America’s Next Top Model (which returns next week)? Is CBS better off without Made in Jersey? What were you watching last night?

I didn’t like the theme of Made In Jersey, so I would not have watched no matter where it aired. Love Grimm. Liked Arrow a lot. CSI NY and Blue Bloods are two of my faorites. Lets see, am I forgetting anything. I don’t know. I am an elderly woman, I have a DVR and I watch a lot of TV. I wonder what demo I fall into.
Arrow has been added to series recordings on my DVR. Arrow reminds me of the Christian Bale version of Batman.
Friday night TV for me: Fringe, Bluebloods.
CBS would have been better off with Made in Jersey NOT BEING ON FRIDAY NIGHTS!!!!! It should have been on Sundays or maybe Tuesdays, NOT FRIDAYS!!!!
I’m glad to see CSI:NY’s rating were up; it gives me hope that the show will be renewed for another year next spring.

I think CBS is better off with out Made in Jersey. I hate Reality TV so I don’t care about America’s Top Model. I’m not all that interested in Beauty and The Beast or Arrow either. CSI NY is what I like and I do watch Fringe! Hope they keep CSI NY around, would love to see a 200th episode.
