Ratings: Fringe Ends Season With 14-Week High, Finder Farewell Up, CSI: NY and Boss Drop

Fox’s Fringe ended its penultimate season on Friday with 3.2 million total viewers — up 16 percent week-to-week and a 14-week high — and a 1.0 demo rating (up a tenth).

Of the night’s other finales, Fox’s cancelled The Finder (4.2 mil/1.1) inched up 4 percent and a tenth, Undercover Boss (5.8 mil/1.1) plunged 27 percent in the demo, CBS bubble drama CSI: NY (9 mil/1.2) dropped 20 percent in the demo and Blue Bloods (10.6 mil/1.3) slipped a tenth (yet was of course Friday’s most-watched program).

TVLine’s remarkably easy-to-use Renewal Scorecard can of course be found here, reflecting the flurry of moves made in recent days by ABC, The CW and Fox.
