- Week two of Grimm did take a noticeable drop from last week's 2.1 debut, but it won the 9/8c hour with all competing dramas in place and once again doubled its lead-in from the increasingly disastrous Chuck. Pretty encouraging, and I still think it ought to be moved!
- The biggest news elsewhere was definitely Blue Bloods, which tied last week's Grimm as the season's biggest scripted episode to date and posted its highest demo on a Friday since the pilot on 9/24/10. Also up from recent originals were Kitchen Nightmares, Fringe, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and (after finals) Supernatural.
|Extreme Makeover: Home Edition||4.82||1.2||4||32%||+9%||n/a||n/a||-26%||7/10||1.32|
|Extreme Makeover: Home Edition||5.47||1.4||4||33%||+17%||+17%||+0%||-11%||6/11||1.63|
|A Gifted Man||8.55||1.2||4||18%||+0%||n/a||n/a||-3%||2/6||1.32|
