Ratings: Fringe (Frak!) Falls to New Low

Get More: News, Ratings

Fox’s Fringe on Friday returned to a total audience of 2.88 million total viewers, down 6 percent from its last fresh episode, while dropping 25 percent to an all-time low demo rating of 0.9.

Did Peeta impair Peter’s performance? Discuss. (And say 10 times fast.)

Of the night’s other genre fare, Nikita (1.56 mil/0.5) added a few eyeballs and gained a tenth in the demo, while Supernatural (1.6 mil/0.6) dropped 9 and 14 percent, matching its demo low.

CBS’ primetime NCAA coverage led the night with and average of 6.5 million total viewers and a 2.2 rating, while Shark Tank (6 mil) was the most-watched non-sports program.

  • I am a huge fringe fan but, I had ABSOLUTELY no idea that it came back this week. Was there any promotion for it at all? Granted the amount I watch Fox these days is limited to House and um … Breaking In (hoping it gets better but adding Megan and losing Odette ruined that show).

    If I had only logged into TVLine on Friday… alas I didn’t and I went out instead. Thanks to my wonderful (read craptastic) Cox DVR missing it, I am going to be relegated to Hulu-ing it.

    For those of us who believe Idol and X-Factor are completely soulless and uninteresting television and hope that the powers that be finally see that these competition shows should only be on a single night, I really hope that Fox starts to heavily promote its own shows returns. When do Glee and Bones start back up? For some reason I have this sneaking suspicion now that my crappy DVR missed more than just Fringe now.

    • DVR-Gate

      My DVR did not record. I called my friend same issue. I use charter and my friend uses TIVO. I think an investigation is warranted. Matt- I expect you will handle this issue.
