0.8 for Made In Jersey? That’s terrible. It’s very likely getting pulled this week. CSI: NY and Blue Bloods are weak also. CBS has completely collapsed on this night.
I think that Shark Tank aired instead of Wife Swap. Shark Tank is doing well but ABC loses steam after that. The comedy block isn’t likely to do much better though. Has anyone read one positive review for Malibu Country? I’m surprised that a Reba led comedy is getting trashed like it is.
Grimm is doing very well for NBC.
X-Factor repeats are doing better than original episodes of Fringe. Fringe has done practically the impossible here.

clueless gal strikes again…. Reba on CW was never liked by critics yet it did very well for CW standards.
Reba was on WB and moved to CW for one year to finish up the episode order (critics didn’t officially review any of the CW episodes because of it.) But regardless, Reba was loved by critics while on WB and even won critics awards. Critics led the campaign to try to save it on CW when it transitioned also. Being hated by critics is news to me. Are you sure we’re talking about the same show?
Featuring Shark Tank, What Would You Do? and 20/20, ABC won Friday night in Adults 18-49, winning by double digits over NBC (+17%), CBS (+40%) and Fox (+40%). ABC’s Shark Tank stood as Friday’s #1 TV show across all key Adult demos (AD18-34/AD18-49/AD25-54).
ABC’s Shark Tank dominated the 8 o’clock hour among Adults 18-49, leading the pack for the 4th week in a row. In fact, the ABC unscripted series towered over CBS’ CSI: NY, widening its winning advantage to 42% (up from a 15% advantage the prior week).
