Ratings: Chuck and Fringe Low But Steady, Nikita and Supernatural Drop

There was not-bad news and not-good news for genre-TV fare this Friday night.

NBC’s Chuck, which has just two weeks/three hours left in its five-year run, held steady with 3.24 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating, as did Fox’s Fringe, which matched its most recent tallies of 2.9 mil/1.1.

The CW, meanwhile, struggled. Nikita (1.46 mil/0.5) was down 7 and 17 percent, respectively, while a reportedly excellent installment of Supernatural (1.55 mil/0.6) nonetheless dropped 15 and 25 percent.

NBC’s Grimm (4.63 mil/1.4) also dipped, 7 percent, to hit a series-low demo rating.


* Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (6.2 mil/1.6) ended its series run with a 14-percent upswing.

* CBS’ drama lineup won every hour in total viewers, with Blue Bloods also besting its rivals in the demo. A Gifted Man opened the evening with 8.66 mil/1.3, down 13 percent in the demo. CSI: NY then drew 10.5 mil/1.7, on par with its last outing. Tom Selleck & Co. closed the night with 11.9 mil/1.8, adding a few eyeballs week-to-week.
