Ratings: Fringe Slips to New Low, Chuck Steady

Fringe‘s best episode of Season 4 to date sadly drew the Fox series’ lowest rating to date, dropping 15 percent week-to-week to a 1.1 — and on 11/11/11 (as one Tweeter noted).

Fringe had matched its previous all-time low, a 1.2 rating, with this season’s second episode, but notched increases here and there since.

Fringe‘s Joshua Jackson Reveals Peter’s Wrong World Dilemma: ‘He’s Got to Get Out of Dodge!’

Among the night’s other genre fare, NBC’s struggling Chuck (3.2 mil/0.9) at long last stabilized, Marc Berman’s TV Media Insights reports, while its freshman lead-out Grimm (5.2 mil/1.5) dropped 13 and 17 percent, respectively. The CW’s Nikita was flat at 1.9 mil/0.6, as was Supernatural (1.8 mil/0.8).

UPDATED: Turning to CBS’ Friday drama line-up, the freshman bubble show A Gifted Man held steady at 8.25 million viewers and a 1.2 rating, CSI: NY (10.16 mil/1.7) inched up a few percentage points, and Blue Bloods (11.2 mil/1.7) dropped double digits but still led the night in total viewers while tying CSI: NY for the top demo number.

    Everybody please watch Fringe live next friday! There’s just one more episode before the month-long break, so it’s not that demanding to not go out for one hour on the 18th. You have the whole December to do whatever you want, but please stay in to save such an intelligent and creative show!

    Fox is hurting the show by delaying its online accessibility. I love Fringe, but I don’t have a TV antenna or cable; I watch all my TV programs online via my laptop. I do not mind sitting though online commercials to watch the show, but Fox is killing Fringe’s momentum by the eight-day delay for online viewers, and that can’t be good for however online viewings are placed into ratings. Plus, they’re pushing a segment of their viewers to illegally download the show to keep up.

    Wow what awful news. I seriously want to track down at least 10 Nielsen families and pay them to watch fringe LIVE. Hundred dollars for each, come out come out wherever you are.

    NBC now has zero programs worth watching. CHUCK this year is unwatchable. The series should have ended with the wedding. If it wasn’t for sunday night football I’d eliminate NBC from my program quide. Fringe this year is a work in progress. It is getting better since the return of Peter. The problem is it lost a significant percentage of its audience with the crappy 1st 3 or 4 episodes.

    I love Fringe and Supernatural and will not give up that time slot for Grimm. I do like Grimm but am waiting until Syfy airs Grimm marathon November 22.
