CBS was on top of a low rated Friday as usual. At 8pm, A Gifted Man was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. This show is incredibly consistent but probably still too low to survive. At 9pm, CSI: NY was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Blue Bloods came back from last week's highs as it was down 1.4 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. That seems like a big drop but these are normal numbers, I still don't know what explains last week's numbers. Over on NBC, Chuck was even in viewers and the demo while Week 3 of Grimm was down eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. After a surprisingly promising start, it doesn't look like Grimm is going to make it and I'm not sure a timeslot change would help. At 10pm, Dateline NBC was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.

Meanwhile the news was not good at 8pm for ABC where Extreme Makeover: Home Edition dipped seven tenths in viewers and five tenths in the demo from last week's 8pm airing for a series low. It seemed like the right time to move this show to Fridays but it's not working here for ABC. Two editions of 20/20 followed with the 10pm edition up nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo from last week. Over on FOX, Kitchen Nightmares was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Fringe dipped another two tenths in viewers and in the demo for series lows. It's time for Fringe to go.
