Primetime Ratings, Friday, 5/3/13

Happy Endings

ABC won the night in the 18-49 demo, but CBS still drew more total viewers.

The final two Happy Endings of the season managed to rise, but not by nearly enough to avoid the axe. The first new episode rose two tenths to an 0.8, while the (likely) series finale posted an 0.7. Fans better hope the rumors about USA picking up the show are accurate, because there is simply no way ABC renews a program that draws less than 1.0 every week. Shark Tank dropped three tenths, but still had the best demos of the night. 20/20 climbed up over 30% to a 1.6.

Undercover Boss fell a steep five tenths. Vegas continues to crap out on Fridays, falling to an 0.9. Blue Bloods matched last week's 1.3. NBC's Fashion Star matched last week's 0.7. Dateline fell two tenths. Rock Center rose 22% to a 1.1. FOX's Kitchen Nightmares rose a single tenth. Touch matched last week's 0.6, and is so beyond canceled it's not even funny. Nikita matched last week's 0.3 for the CW.

It's a shame ABC is doing to Happy Endings what it did to Cougar Town. I initially resented Happy Endings because this was the show ABC used to push out Cougar Town and now ABC is doing the same without having a quality program of the same calibur as HE to replace it. I love, love love Happy Endings and it deserves to continue on. Maybe it should go to USA or paired with Cougar Town on TBS to finally be supported. Shame on ABC for sidelining, then exiling Happy Endings to whatever spare night they could find. Shame, shame shame ABC.
