- Haven't talked Fringe since I started doing these since it's been steady at (what was in my opinion a very bubbly) 1.5. But last night's episode took another couple brutal steps downward to a new outright series low, and I think it's in big trouble now.
- It's been quite an impressive seven-year run, but Supernanny closed with a whimper, up a tick from last week but slightly below its soft 1.1 average this season. More on that in a War of 18-49 update next week. (Now posted HERE.)
- The two NCAA games ended up down 55% and 48% year-to-year respectively. As yesterday, I'll note that's because the games are spread out across four networks for the first time this year.
- TVBTN's into reporting the Daylight Saving viewing level thing now, so since my estimates are so rough, I'll just report their numbers: -10% at 8:00, -5% at 9:00, -4% at 10:00 week-to-week.
