Spotted Ratings, Friday 5/11/12: Underwhelming Boss


WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS has been airing finales of various stuff for several days now, but last night began their self-imposed last week of original series programming. And what a dreadful start it was, as the finale of Undercover Boss dropped for the fourth straight week, this time by a massive amount. CSI: NY also had a bad finale night but managed to score a renewal anyway. Blue Bloods rounded out the trio of new lows, but it dropped less than the other two.
  • That left ABC on top in every hour (and now with the outright three biggest programs) for the second straight week, as Shark Tank and Primetime: What Would You Do? were both above average.
  • The penultimate Grimm was soft, and Fox's finales of The Finder and Fringe each got back a tenth.
