ABC AND CBS SPLIT LEADERSHIP; THE CANCELLATION CLOCK IS TICKING ON MADE IN JERSEY ON CBS

It was a Friday night of modest split leadership, with deteriorating CBS first overall in total viewers and ABC No. 1 among adults 18-49 (according to the fast affiliate results from Nielsen). But CBS has sprung a leak, with established CSI: NY and Blue Bloods on the considerable year-to-year downside and week two of drama Made in Jersey in the middle at a fourth-place 0.8 rating/3 share among adults 18-49 at 9 p.m. Tick, tock…the cancellation clock is ticking on made in Jersey.

There were two “winners” on this second Friday of the new TV season: Shark Tank on ABC and Grimm on NBC, which each led their time periods among adults 18-49. Shark Tank topped the evening in the demo, with a 1.7/ 6 (which for traditionally HUT-level Friday is positive).

Elsewhere, America’s Next Top Model needs to officially conclude on The CW; Fox is wise to be ending low-rated Fringe; and Dateline on NBC inched past competing 20/20 on ABC at 10 p.m. Click on the following for a listing by network and by individual series (by half hour): http://tinyurl.com/9lb76ye

    Why would they think of cancelling Made in Jersey? Its actually a good show. I want to keep it on.

    Under a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 is a disaster, unfortunately.

    “THE CANCELLATION CLOCK IS TICKING ON MADE IN JERSEY ON ABC”

    I think Made in Jersey is on CBS. Perhaps you meant “and ABC”
