THE RUNDOWN: Friday, April 8, Saturday, April 9, & Sunday, April 10

FRIDAY

ABC
8:00 Shark Tank
9:00 Primetime: What Would You Do?
10:00 20/20
ABC is all new on Friday night with its regular lineup. The shows should be around their normal and low levels. It would be great to see ABC try something new here next year.
Prediction: Shark - 4.8 million, 1.3/Primetime - 4.6 million, 1.3/2020 - 5.3 million, 1.5


CBS
8:00 Chaos #2 "Song of the North"
9:00 CSI: NY #159 "Food for Thought"
10:00 Blue Bloods #19 "Model Behavior"
CBS is all new with its drama lineup. New entry Chaos barely made a dent with its Friday premiere last week and it's sure to go down at least a bit this week which would put it well below what Medium and The Defenders were getting in this slot. CSI: NY and Blue Bloods may be negatively affected but not too much.
Prediction: Chaos - 5.7 million, 1.0/CSI NY - 9.9 million, 1.7/Bloods - 10.5 million, 1.6

NBC
8:00 Who Do You Think You Are? (Season Finale)
9:00 Dateline NBC (REPEAT)
NBC is starting things off with the season finale of the already-renewed Who Do You Think You Are? It should be around normal levels. It is followed by a Dateline repeat which should be below normal levels.
Prediction: Who Do You - 6.2 million, 1.3/Dateline - 4.4 million, 1.0

FOX
8:00 Kitchen Nightmares (REPEAT)
9:00 Fringe #40 "Brown Betty" (REPEAT)
FOX is in repeats again this Friday and should be barely on the map.
Prediction: Kitchen - 2.7 million, 1.1/Fringe - 1.8 million, 0.6

SATURDAY

ABC
8:00 MOVIE: War of the Worlds

CBS
8:00 The Mentalist #38 "Red Herring" (REPEAT)
9:00 Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior #2 "Lonely Hearts" (REPEAT)
10:00 48 Hours Mystery

NBC
8:00 Harry's Law #12 "Last Dance" (REPEAT)
9:00 Law & Order: Los Angeles #3 "Harbor City" (REPEAT)
10:00 Law & Order: SVU #260 "Posessed" (REPEAT)

FOX
8:00 NASCAR Racing: Sprint Cup in Fort Worth

SUNDAY

ABC
7:00 America's Funniest Home Videos (REPEAT)
8:00 Secret Millionaire (Season Finale)
9:00 Brothers & Sisters #104 "Olivia's Choice"
10:00 Brothers & Sisters #105 "Never Say Never"
ABC is new from 8-11pm on Sunday night. Following an America's Funniest Home Videos repeat is the season finale of Secret Millionaire which should be steady as it has been lately. It is very likely to get renewed for next season. At 9pm is two episodes (but billed as a two hour episode) of Brothers & Sisters. It will be interesting to see how this on-the-bubble show performs without a Desperate Housewives lead-in. Chances are, it won't be great.
Prediction: Videos - 6.1 million, 1.5/Millionaire - 9.6 million, 2.7/Brothers 9:00 - 6.8 million, 2.0/Brothers 10:00 - 6.2 million, 1.9

CBS
7:00 60 Minutes
8:00 The Amazing Race
9:00 Undercover Boss
10:00 CSI Miami #210 "Caged"
CBS is all new on Sunday night and should be around normal levels across the board. With The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss renewed, the question is will CSI: Miami get renewed? Every episode will be important for this veteran crime drama.
Prediction: 60 Mins - 9.9 million, 1.4/Amazing - 10.5 million, 3.0/Boss - 11.4 million, 2.9/Miami - 10.9 million, 2.6

NBC
7:00 Dateline NBC
8:00 America's Next Great Restaurant
9:00 Celebrity Apprentice
NBC is all new on Sunday night. Dateline NBC and America's Next Great Restaurant should be at their normal low levels but with less competition, Celebrity Apprentice could hit another season high. 
Prediction: Dateline - 4.9 million, 0.8/Restaurant - 4.2 million, 1.4/Apprentice - 8.9 million, 3.3

FOX
7:00 The Cleveland Show #27 "Fat and Wet" (REPEAT)
7:30 American Dad! #111 "License to Till"
8:00 The Simpsons #482 "The Great Simpsina"
8:30 Bob's Burgers #10 "Burger Wars"
9:00 Family Guy #161 "Tiegs for Two"
9:30 The Cleveland Show #40 "Ship'rect"
FOX is all new from 7:30-10pm for the first time in awhile. Having new episodes across the board should help the numbers for all these shows, which are all renewed anyway.
Prediction: Cleveland 7:00 - 2.2 million, 1.0/Dad - 3.9 million, 2.0/Simpsons - 6.4 million, 2.8/Burgers - 4.8 million, 2.2/Family - 6.5 million, 3.1/Cleveland - 4.9 million, 2.3
