THE RUNDOWN: Friday, April 29 & Saturday, April 30

FRIDAY

ABC
8:00 Shark Tank
9:00 20/20
ABC is starting things off with Shark Tank which will probably be on par with last week. At 9pm is a two hour 20/20 and one of many network specials on the Royal Wedding. Things involving the wedding have been modestly rated but this should bring 20/20's numbers up from last week.
Prediction: Shark - 5.0 million, 1.4/2020 - 5.6 million, 1.5


CBS
8:00 The Royal Wedding: Modern Majesty (SPECIAL)
9:00 CSI: NY #160 "Nothing for Something"
10:00 Blue Bloods #20 "All That Glitters"
CBS is all new starting with, yes, a special on the Royal Wedding. It should be above the timeslot average for this season. New episodes of CSI: NY and Blue Bloods follow and could be up slightly from their last new episodes thanks to a better lead-in.
Prediction: Wedding - 6.8 million, 1.6/CSI NY - 10.7 million, 1.9/Bloods - 11.4 million, 1.8

NBC
8:00 Friday Night Lights #66 "The Right Hand of the Father"
9:00 Dateline NBC
NBC is all new with Friday Night Lights, which should be on par with last week and a Dateline episode featuring, of course, the Royal Wedding. As with 20/20, Dateline could be up a bit with the special coverage.
Prediction: Friday - 3.3 million, 0.9/Dateline - 6.2 million, 1.5

FOX
8:00 Kitchen Nightmares
9:00 Fringe #64 "The Last Sam Weiss"
FOX is all new with its regular lineup. Kitchen Nightmares is new again and should be close to even with its last new episode. Despite the stronger competition, Fringe is following a new show again and could be up from last week's low as a result.
Prediction: Kitchen - 4.1 million, 1.5/Fringe - 3.8 million, 1.3


SATURDAY

ABC
8:00 MOVIE: Batman Begins


CBS
8:00 Fight Camp 360 (SPECIAL)
9:00 Criminal Minds #124 "What Happens at Home" (REPEAT)
10:00 48 Hours Mystery

NBC
8:00 Chase #15 "Seven Years"
9:00 Law & Order: LA #12 "Benedict Canyon" (REPEAT)
10:00 Law & Order: SVU #262 "Dirty" (REPEAT) 

FOX
8:00 NASCAR Racing: Sprint Cup in Richmond
