Spotted Ratings, Friday 10/19/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was another bellwether evening for ABC's unscripted Friday. Prior to this week, Shark Tank was arguably the most successful show on broadcast TV that had never broken a 2.0. Now, that label's gone, as it cracked the mark for the first time ever. It also helped Primetime: What Would You Do? swing upward.
  • But the evening's scripted options were another story. Nikita bombed bad, down 50% year-to-year and hitting an outright series low in its return, and much of the post-Made in Jersey bounce fizzled on CBS with Hawaii Five-0 the repeat option at 8/7c this week. CSI: NY and Blue Bloods each dropped.

Nikita doing this badly surprised me. I thought that it had a fairly loyal audience and that they would be so appreciative of getting another season that they'd turn out.

With Shark Tank doing so well, it makes me wonder if ABC is going to regret pushing it back an hour for the supposed blossoming of TGIF's reboot. 2.0 ratings aren't a guarantee anymore, especially on Fridays.
