Spotted Ratings, Friday 1/20/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC took control of Friday with the return of Shark Tank hitting its best Friday ratings ever and Primetime: What Would You Do? premiering a tick down from its September 2010 premiere but ahead of pretty much all of the back half of last season. Both shows improved their timeslots vs. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, at least on premiere night (especially Shark Tank, up 50%). 20/20 posted its second straight great number thanks to its coverage of the cruise ship story.
  • NBC also got great numbers as Chuck hit a season high and Grimm was up drastically to its best number since its second episode in early November. I wonder if there were basketball preemptions I guess the shows just benefited that much from no CBS/CW originals! Deeper analysis also indicates it was highest overall-viewed Friday of the season, which couldn't have hurt.

I found no basketball games on NBC's affiliates in the top 100 markets. The only sports preemptions I found were on MyNet -- three high school games and one college game (Arkansas at LSU on KARZ). CBS affiliate WRGB in Albany, NY had a St Jude's special at 8pm, with "A Gifted Man" airing after Ferguson.
