Ratings: The Finder Falls in Friday Debut, Fringe Dips in Demo

Allow me to be the sixth or seventh to say this morning that it was not a particularly good Friday, ratings-wise, for Fox this week.

Leading off the night, the relocated The Finder drew 3.92 million total viewers while scoring a 1.1 demo rating. For comparison’s sake, the Bones spin-off in its last Thursday outing did 7 mil and a 2.3, while Friday time slot predecessor Kitchen Nightmares most recently delivered 3 mil/1.2.

Come 9 o’clock, Fringe drew 3.1 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating, holding steady in audience but down 17 percent in the demo.

Elsewhere on Good Friday/the first night of Passover:

* Over on CBS, Undercover Boss (7.8 mil/1.8) was flat, bubble show CSI: NY (8.9 mil/1.7) shed a few viewers and Blue Bloods (10.8 mil/1.7) inched up a bit.

* On NBC, Who Do You Think You Are, Edie Falco? (4.5 mil/0.8) was down 14 percent in audience, while the already-renewed Grimm (4.5 mil/1.3) ticked up a bit.
