Friday Ratings: Big Bump for Betty

Okay, so CBS was in repeats—but I think we’d all accept gifts when we can. A lack of competition helped Friday’s broadcast of Ugly Betty reach its best numbers of the season. Thankfully, the program will be given a new opportunity when it starts airing on Wednesdays in January.

FOX Choosing Repeats Over Dollhouse this November

Dollhouse

Okay - how can we spin this announcement for the fans out there?

Repeats of House and Bones will take over for the Joss Whedon program - and comedies ‘Til Death and - starting November 6.

Friday Ratings: Weak Return for Dollhouse

Attention Dollhouse producers - get Summer Glau on quick! Had I not known that Dollhouse premiered last Friday, I would have assumed by the program’s numbers that it was still in repeats. Unfortunately, the Joss Whedon-created series made its return with the lowest demos for any original that evening. (It’s lead-in - Brothers—didn’t fare much better.) To make matters worse, the FOX drama also pulled in smaller numbers than several repeats.

Eliza Dushku8pm

  • Ghost Whisperer (8.6 million, 2.2/8 in 18-49) was down 700,000 from last fall.
  • (1.3/5) kicked off its 20th season with 6.3 million.
  • A FlashForward* repeat (1.5/5) had 4.6 million blacking out.
  • (1.0/4) kept 2.8 million amused.
  • (1.0/4) debuted to 2.5 million.
