THE RUNDOWN: Friday, April 1 & Saturday, April 2

Due to other commitments, the monthly Freshman Scorecard that typically appears on the first of every month will not appear until Saturday or Sunday this week and the same goes for the Pilot Review for new CBS series Chaos, so check back this weekend!!

FRIDAY

ABC
8:00 Shark Tank
9:00 20/20
ABC is all new on Friday night but preempting Primetime: What Would You Do? for a last minute two-hour edition of 20/20, but that shouldn't make much of a difference in ratings. Don't look for much from Shark Tank especially if CBS's Chaos can sample well.
Prediction: Shark - 4.4 million, 1.1/2020 - 4.9 million, 1.4

CBS
8:00 Chaos #1 "Pilot" (SERIES PREMIERE)
9:00 CSI: NY #158 "Identity Crisis"
10:00 Blue Bloods #18 "To Tell the Truth"
CBS is all new starting with the series premiere of Chaos (as if CBS needed another drama). It was promoted heavily during March Madness so it could get a decent sampling, but the demo probably won't be too high. Still, it may propel CSI: NY and Blue Bloods to rises as well.
Prediction: Chaos - 9.0 million, 1.6/CSI NY - 10.9 million, 2.0/Bloods - 11.9 million, 1.9

NBC
8:00 Who Do You Think You Are?
9:00 Dateline NBC
NBC is all new with its regular lineup. If CBS has a strong night, numbers could be down slightly but steady for the most part.
Prediction: Who Do You - 6.2 million, 1.2/Dateline - 7.0 million, 1.5

FOX
8:00 Kitchen Nightmares (REPEAT)
9:00 Fringe #53 "The Firefly" (REPEAT)
FOX is in repeats on Friday night and should get lost in the crowd with new programming on the other three networks.
Prediction: Kitchen - 2.9 million, 1.0/Fringe - 2.3 million, 0.6 

SATURDAY

ABC
8:00 MOVIE: Transformers

CBS
8:00 NCAA Basketball March Madness: Final Four

NBC
8:00 Harry's Law #11 "With Friends Like These" (REPEAT)
9:00 Law & Order: Los Angeles #5 "Pasadena" (REPEAT)
10:00 Law & Order: SVU #259 "Pop" (REPEAT)

FOX
8:00 Cops
9:00 America's Most Wanted
