Spotted Ratings, Friday 2/22/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It's not likely the finale ratings for CSI: NY were ever going to make much or any difference in its renewal prospects. But if the show has any real chance, this wasn't a good final impression. CSI: NY concluded as the weak link of the CBS evening and a distant third place in its timeslot. It surprisingly got zero week-to-week boost despite its lead-in more than doubling from last week with the return of Undercover Boss (1.5 overall, 1.7 at 8:30).
  • The 8:00 hour had some particularly soft showings from bubble shows: Last Man Standing, Malibu Country, Nikita.

The shortened episode orders for the past two seasons makes me think renewing CSI: NY was more a bird-in-the-hand renewal than risking its replacement being a Made in Jersey bomb. Unless the syndication deal is incredibly rich, I think it'll stop short of 200 episodes. If so, then there's a new question: will CBS continue phasing out scripted shows on Fridays next season?
