A rather uneventful night of TV saw NBC win the demos for the first Friday in quite a while, although CBS still drew more total viewers.
Speaking of CBS, Undercover Boss dropped two tenths of a point, while procedurals CSI: NY and Blue Bloods both dropped a single tenth from last week. ABC comedies Last Man Standing and Malibu Country dropped small amounts as well. 20/20 took a bigger hit, dipping down four tenths.
On FOX, Fringe tied its last original episode, while Kitchen Nightmares rose a little, but still only managed a 1.2. The demo night was so bad that NBC managed to win with a line-up consisting of an recently shown SNL Christmas compilation, which actually brought lead-out Dateline up over half a point. As for the C-dubs, Nikita came in even with last week's (still rather meager) season high.
