Ratings: Undercover Boss Boosts CBS, Nikita Drops, CSI: NY Finale Up Versus Last Year
CBS’ Undercover Boss — with 7.3 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo ratings — returned down more than 20 percent from its last fresh outing, but nonetheless improved upon short-lived time slot squatter The Job by 200-plus percent.
Leading out of that, CSI: NY‘s Season 9 (series?) finale did 9.4 mil and a 1.2, flat week-to-week but up 4 percent and a tenth from its previous season (series?) finale. Blue Bloods closed CBS’ night with 11.06 mil/1.4, drawing Friday’s largest audience.
Over on ABC, Last Man Standing (6 mil/1.3) and Malibu Country (5.50 mil/1.1) both ticked down a tenth, while Shark Tank held steady at 6.44 mil/1.8 and commanded the night’s best rating.
Fox’s Kitchen Nightmares (3.1 mil/1.1) and Touch (2.52 mil/0.7) were both flat.
The CW’s Nikita dropped a few viewers and fell two tenths in the demo to 1.26 mil/0.3.
