Ratings: Fringe Scares Up Small Gain, Nikita Dips, Supernatural Holds Steady

The promise of Peter’s imminent return perhaps played a part in perking up Fringe‘s latest numbers.

The Fox drama, with 3.24 million total viewers and a 1.3 rating, rebounded from last week’s all-time low to gain 8 percent in the demo. It also notched a 6 percent bump in total audience.

In fact, Fringe was one of only two Friday programs to register a week-to-week gain in the demo, and the only show to bring in additional viewers.

Here’s how Friday’s fare fared:

8 pm | The freshman CBS drama A Gifted Man (7.5 mil/1.2) held steady and led the hour in total audience, while Kitchen Nightmares (3.7 mil/1.5) topped the demos. Nikita (1.6 mil/0.5) dipped a few points.

9 pm | CSI: NY (9.75 mil/1.6) bested all comers, while slipping 6 percent in the demo. The Jensen Ackles-directed Supernatural (1.64 mil/0.7) lost a handful of eyeballs but held steady in the demo.

10 pm | Blue Bloods was the night’s most watched and top-rated program, with 11.04 million total viewers and a 1.9 demo rating (up 6 percent in its third week).
