On Friday night, CBS was the only network to have any sort of night (as usual). At 8pm, A Gifted Man was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo for its best demo performance since the series premiere. It's still up in the air what show will air after Gifted runs its course or if CBS will pick up more Gifted episodes. I'm not sure anything could do much better here. At 9pm, CSI: NY was down a tenth in viewers but even in the demo while Blue Bloods followed up 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. Bloods is really the only bonafide Friday hit on any network.

Meanwhile on NBC, Chuck was terrible as usual but dead even with last week. At 9pm, Grimm showed signs of stabilization as it was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. These numbers are definitely good enough for NBC Fridays if it stays around these levels. Many were surprised that NBC didn't try Grimm on a different night at midseason after the promise it has shown this first couple weeks. At 10pm, Dateline NBC was up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.

Over on ABC, the 8pm edition of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition rebounded some as it was up six tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo and the 9pm edition built from there. At 10pm, 20/20 was down nine tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo. Finally, FOX's Kitchen Nightmares was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo but it still won the weak hour with a paltry 1.4 demo. At 9pm, Fringe was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. The viewer total is another series low. It is now below 3 million viewers. Time to go.
