It can also be noted that CHAOS performed 27 percent below time slot predecessor The Defender‘s own Friday debut, and fell even further shy of that legal dramedy’s season finale.
The news was better elsewhere on Friday for CBS. CSI: NY led the 9 o’clock hour with 10.26 mil and a 1.7, and Blue Bloods as typical topped the night in total audience (with 10.7 million).
ABC’s 20/20 scored Friday’s best demo rating, with a 1.8. Shark Tank held steady at 4.8 mil/1.2.
