Ratings: NCAA Football Dominates Friday, CW Dramas Eye Upticks

Fox’s coverage of the NCAA football match-up between the Washington Huskies and Colorado Buffaloes drew 5.4 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating on Friday, easily winning the night in the demo.

CBS’ colorized I Love Lucy special (6.7 mil/0.9), meanwhile, commanded Friday’s largest total audience.

Over on ABC, Last Man Standing (6.3 mil/1.1), Dr. Ken (4.5 mil/0.9) and Shark “Chewable Coffee!” Tank (5.2 mil/1.2) were all steady.

The CW’s Vampire Diaries (1.1 mil/0.4) and Crazy Ex (650K/0.3) each rose in audience as well as ticked up in the demo, though I don’t know if there were any preemptions going on there.

NBC’s Dateline (6.1 mil/1.2) and ABC’s 20/20 (6.3 mil/1.1) both hit season highs in total audience as well as the demo.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I love the annual I LOVE LUCY special. The Christmas ep is awesome. However, their choice for the 2nd ep this year was below par. The previous years’ chocolate factory and grapes foot-stomping eps were far superior. Think they could have picked a better 2nd ep for this year.
