Primetime Ratings, Friday, 11/16/12

Malibu Country

Continuing the pattern of the last few Friday nights, ABC won the demos, while CBS won total viewers.

After very strong premiere numbers, Last Man Standing and Malibu Country continue to be gigantic disappointments for ABC, with LMS dropping 14% to a 1.4, and MC going down 24% to a 1.3. Not good doesn't even do that justice. I doubt either is long for this world. Shark Tank also dipped, but still won the night in demos. 20/20 went down 13% too. A bad night for the alphabet network.

Undercover Boss dropped 11%, but still did okay for Friday. Unfortunately, CSI: NY continues to come in with lower than a 1.5 demo, and I'm convinced will probably joining CSI: Miami in TV heaven after this season. The music special We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston actually did even worse demos than Blue Bloods usually does in the timeslot. CBS just can't win with younger viewers on Friday.

The peacock saw Grimm drop 6%, while Dateline dropped 8%. FOX's Kitchen Nightmares matched last week's pathetic 1.2. Fringe also matched last week's equally pathetic 0.9. As for the C-dubs, the season finale of America's Next Top Model matched the last original episode, while an ANTM behind the scenes special actually drew more viewers than a new Nikita did last week.
