Ratings: Shark Tank Tops Night, Jersey Tumbles
CBS’ freshman legal drama also fell 13 percent to 6.7 million viewers, yet still led its time slot in total audience.
ABC’s Shark Tank (6 mil/1.7) edged out Grimm to deliver Friday’s best demo rating (rising 13 percent week-to-week), while Blue Bloods (9.6 mil/1.2), despite dropping 15 percent, as always copped the most total viewers.
Elsewhere on Friday:
* CSI: NY opened CBS’ night with 8.4 mil and a 1.2, dipping 8 percent from its season opener. That means Jersey dropped a third of its demo lead-in, which as you can see above does not make Frank Reagan happy.
* Of genre-TV fare, Grimm held steady at 5.2 mil/1.6, while Fringe (3.03 mil/1.0) dipped a tenth in the demo.
All told, CBS averaged the most viewers, while ABC scored the nightly demo win.
