Fall TV Poll: What Will You Watch on Fridays?

The Fall TV season will be here before you know it, and tough viewing choices arrive with it. We’ve decided the time to get thinking about them is now.

Each day this week, TVLine is showing you the grid for that night’s fall line-up, including the broadcast networks’ wares and select cable listings. You then vote for what you plan to watch LIVE during each time slot (since live/live-ish viewership is still the creme de la creme when it comes to ratings, whether anyone likes it or not).

One last caveat before we get to the polls: This is not a popularity contest. Organizing a robo-vote for a certain show will not get Nikita or Michael to go “undercover” with you. So have faith in the merit of your individual choices, then watch to see how many others legitimately line up aside you.
NOTES ABOUT THE FRIDAY GRID: Grids represent the face-offs taking place for at least several weeks of the fall TV season. Details on the one new show, Made In Jersey, can be found here. Also, an important reminder: Grimm will air Season 2’s first four episodes on Mondays at 10, starting Aug. 13.

Also be sure to vote in our polls for MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY.

    Blue Bloods

    I know this poll can’t tell how a show will perform in the ratings entirely, but I was disappointed to see Made in Jersey with such a small percent (that’s what CBS gets putting it up against Fringe). I watched the trailer and it didn’t look that bad.

    • Doug says:

      Idk, I know that Fringe gets a lot of publicity on sites like tvline, ew, etc but looking at it’s numbers its definitely not like a ratings juggernaut thats going to be the reason made in jersey could flop. I’ve heard the pilot is just okay. I could totally be wrong though

    • I am excited about Made in Jersery, im still shocked the lead actress is a Brit, her accent is so dead on. Realistically thinking though this poll does not mean anything for ratings, CBS will likly dominate the night anyways, especially now its the crime in NYC night! Nikita, Grimm and Fringe will win these polls but unfortunately the ratings so equal, which is a shame because theya re all good shows!

    • MIchael says:

      The top shows in the polls are Friday night are overwhelmingly Community and Fringe. Even Nikita did well. These three shows will finish at the bottom of the ratings barrell. For some reasons, polls on sites like tvline and ew rarely represent the majority of TV watchers in any way shape or form. Too bad though, because I love all three shows.

    • Jenni says:

      I don’t plan at this moment to watch Made in Jersey, even though it is between two shows I will watch. It just doesn’t interest me and I’m mad because I loved CSI:NY and Blue Bloods together.

  3. xwiseguyx says:

    Whitney – yeah!!! Shark Tank (during Community)..

  4. Ikernad says:

    Fringe! Can’t wait!

  5. K says:

    Community and Fringe.

  6. Kaa says:

    I will watch Fringe at 9 p.m. At 10 p.m., I will watch Fringe again.

  7. SQ says:

    Nikita ftw.

  8. Community, Nikita, Fringe, Made in Jersey, Blue Bloods and Boss.

  9. Kay says:


  10. Eliza says:

    Community & Grimm. Will record Nikita.

  11. Juliette says:

    ANTM and Fringe!

  12. Julie says:

    Hardest night of the week. Actually just the hardest hour. Fringe, Grimm and Nikita all opposite each other. Guess one will be on demand viewing for me, that will based 100% on which one is the easiest to watch on demand.

  13. Maggie says:


  14. Jenn says:

    Community and Fringe, then switching to Grimm once Fringe is over

  15. Moja TV says:

    Community & Fringe

  16. Nick says:

    Grimm :)

  17. Danielle says:


  18. zaza says:

    If these are the only choices, looks like I’ll be reading a book on Fall Fridays. I’d better stock up.

  19. Raven_Moon says:

    Honestly, I probably won’t watch any of these live. I’ll just DVR Community & Fringe. I like going out on Friday nights & it doesn’t matter if I watch them live or not since I don’t have a Nielsen’s box.

  20. Melissa says:

    Community. That’s all that matters here. And I’ll throw in some votes for Fringe, since my husband loves it, I’ve just never checked it out myself.

  21. Shaun says:

    Horrible thing to do to me,3 good shows on the same hour and the other 2hrs are F’n boring!!

  22. Liz says:

    Blue Bloods definitely and I will also give Made in Jersey a try

  23. Brandy says:

    ANTM, Nikita

  24. MR505 says:

    Touch while waiting for FRINGE!

  25. Gaby says:

    people should watch nikita live and record fringe..fringe is awesome but it’s the final season..nikita NEEDS the ratings…

    • Linda says:

      It doesn’t matter if you watch live or not unless you are a Nielsen person. Those are the only people who count.

      • Gem says:

        Isn’t that depressing though.. Everyone I know could watch a show each week and it makes no difference because without a neilson box we mean nothing. Hopefully someday they will find a better solution to this out of date system.

  26. Taryn says:

    CSI NY

  27. austen says:

    It’s sad how Friday has two of the best shows on right now – Community and Fringe.

  28. jess says:

    grr why is fringe still against grimm!? I voted for Fringe but after it ends, I’ll switch to Grimm…

  29. Kira says:


    Can’t believe this will be the last season of Fringe!!!! At least I’ll still have Nikita :)

  30. sarah says:

    CSI NY
    Blue Bloods

    I think they made a mistake moving CSI NY 1 hour earlier, it was a great pairing as the lead in to Blue Bloods!

  31. Jack Bauer says:

    Touch & Fringe. On Demand: Community. :-)

  32. Renee says:

    Grimm. That’s it for me.

  33. athena606 says:

    everything i watch is on at 9pm lol Fringe, Grimm, Nikita lol thank goodness for DVR

  34. Community and Fringe, of course. Friday night is pretty much geek night now, isn’t it?

  35. Susan says:

    Grimm- On Demand (LIVE until Fringe premieres)
    Nikita- DVR
    Fringe- LIVE

    Why oh why, did the networks have to schedule something I love all in the same time slot? My sister watches Haven too, so I’ll have to DVR their reairing or she’ll have to watch it On Demand too.

  36. kd says:

    Community…and that’s it because that’s all that matters

  37. Miles says:


  38. G says:

    Everything goes to DVR, but Friday night is easy, CSI: NY and Nikita that is all.

  39. Josh says:

    WWE smackdown Community and Touch

  40. chrisjroof says:

    What is the deal with ABC on Fridays? I thought reports were Last Man Standing and Malibu County were starting off the night? Everything seems to have different listings for ABC…

  41. John says:

    Glad to see that so many fans aren’t abandoning Community out of some misguided sense of loyalty. The fact is, with an ensemble like that (and a few key writers still on board), the show will likely still be very, VERY funny, even if it doesn’t quite reach the strange heights of Harmon’s later episodes.

    • Angela says:

      No question I’ll be making time for “Community” on Friday nights. Then after that, if I get a chance to check out “Fringe” properly and like it, perhaps I’ll watch that. Otherwise, maybe “20/20” or “Dateline” if the show looks interesting, or I’ll watch something else. Up in the air at this time.

  42. Erin says:


  43. Babygate says:

    I love Touch and have watched every episode but with the exception of the premiere, I have never watched live because it was up against Grey’s Anatomy. I will continue to watch it because I think this is an amazing show with quality acting, writing and storytelling but I’m not sure I will watch live. I will give ‘Made in New Jersey’ a try but not sure it will stick. I have recently started watching Nikita on Netflix and like it fine but again, not sure I will watch live. Most likely I will catch it on Hulu Plus. With so many shows available on alternative mediums, live tv (or appointment tv) is becoming an outdated, soon to be extinct, modality.

  44. Ramon says:

    Fringe fridays :D

  45. Linda says:

    Ugh, I wish either Nikita or Fringe would move an hour ahead.

  46. Emily says:

    Fringe only. When it ends, I will mope for a few weeks and then get a Friday night life again.

  47. elr says:

    For me it is definately FRINGE at 9:00. The rest of the night is a wash, so it will probably be Touch at 8:00, until the ABC comedies start. And I would never miss Haven. I can’t wait for that to start back up.

  48. Melody Paris says:

    My Friday’s used to be a lot busier for my DVR, but with Supernatural moved to Wednesday’s and Sanctuary and Chuck canceled my Friday’s aren’t looking too bad. I DVR everything, so if I had a Nielsen box and as such watched live TV: 8 pm would be Touch and 9 pm would be Nikita, I’m trying to give CW as many ratings points as possible. In addition to these two shows I will be watching Fringe. As it stands, I’ll probably try to reclaim a bit of my social life and get out of the house then watch the recordings sometime over the weekend.

  49. CJ says:

    Whitney, Community, Nikita!
