Friday night saw ABC manage to win the key demos, but CBS still easily took the total viewer crown.
Comedies Last Man Standing and Malibu Country both dropped a bit for ABC, while Shark Tank came in even with last week. 20/20 managed to recover a little after last week's sizable dip. CBS reality show The Job fell even further from its awful premiere numbers, dropping from an 0.9 to an 0.7. You may recall that 0.9 to 0.7 to canceled was the trajectory NBC drama Do No Harm recently took.
Thanks to the bad lead-in, CSI: NY crashed back down to a 1.2, falling four tenths. Blue Bloods fell only a tenth however. FOX's Touch also went from an 0.9 premiere to an 0.7 this week, and by all rights should be canceled before next Friday. It won't be though, not as long as FOX values their relationship with Kiefer Sutherland. I'd say Touch at least finishes the season out before it gets the axe. As for the rest, Kitchen Nightmares rose a little, Dateline dropped a smidge, and so did Rock Center.
