Spotted Ratings, Friday 2/17/12: Undercover Boom

  • CBS brought the strong-on-Sunday Undercover Boss to Friday and it absolutely took over, outshining any previous broadcast entertainment episode on the night all season and damaging reality competitors Shark Tank and Kitchen Nightmares. A Gifted Man got a decent bounce from the huge lead-in, but it also saw the Boss prove that CBS is still capable of thriving in this timeslot. The AGM pairing also seemed to hurt Blue Bloods, which tied a season low. Overall, I'd say not a very good day for AGM.
  • The Whitney Houston news is still reverberating across the ratings week, with 20/20's tribute tying its Friday high this season and the NAACP Image Awards getting a year-to-year bounce for presumably similar reasons.
