TV Ratings: 'Flashpoint' gives CBS Friday win
Fast National ratings for Friday, April 3, 2009.
With two of its procedurals in repeats, CBS may have looked vulnerable on Friday night, but a new "Flashpoint" prevented the competition from gaining any traction.
CBS and ABC tied in the key 18-49 demographic with a 1.6 rating. FOX's 1.4 rating and the 1.2 rating for NBC followed closely. The CW trailed with a 0.6 rating.
Overall, though, CBS had first place all to itself, averaging 7.81 million viewers to go with a 4.9 rating/9 share. ABC was second with a 3.5/6. NBC's 2.6/5 was third, beating the 2.4/4 for FOX. The CW's 1.1/2 was fifth.
A repeat of "Ghost Whisperer" has no trouble winning the 8 p.m. hour for CBS with a 4.7/9. ABC's "Wife Swap" was second with a 3.0/6. NBC's "Howie Do It" managed to nip the 2.1/4 for "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles." The CW's "Everybody Hates Chris" and "The Game" averaged a 1.2/2 for fifth.
"Flashpoint" delivered a relatively low 5.3/9 for CBS in the 9 p.m. hour, but had no trouble topping ABC's "Supernanny." NBC's "Friday Night Lights" was third with a 2.3/4, narrowly beating the 2.2/4 for FOX's "Dollhouse," which saw its audience dip to 3.486 million viewers. The CW's "America's Next Top Model" was fifth.
CBS won the 10 p.m. hour with a 4.6/8 for a repeat of "Num3rs." ABC's "20/20" had a 4.5/8 for second and actually won the hour in the key demo. "Dateline NBC" was third.
