Spotted Ratings, Friday 5/13/11


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The finale of Smallville did relatively impressive business, picking up 63% from its penultimate episode and tying a season high. This was kind of expected considering the show once had such a big fanbase and was comparable to ER's 71% rise in its final episode. (Might do another edition of my Finale Spike post sometime in the near future.)
  • Probably the only two results that could possibly mean anything for renewal purposes on this last pre-upfront Friday were those of the CSI: NY and Blue Bloods season finales. Both rose in the finals (and have since been reportedly renewed), but CSI: NY was still below average. Blue Bloods recovered after some down results recently to hit its biggest numbers in almost two months. Also on CBS, Flashpoint surprisingly upticked two-tenths from its fairly soft premiere last week.
