Friday Night Ratings

CBS averaged a 6.5 rating/11 share for the night, well ahead of second-place finisher ABC, 4.0/7. Next came NBC, 3.6/6, followed by FOX, 2.5/4. The CW came in last with a 0.9/1.

The battle for the adult 18-49 demographic saw CBS drawing a 2.3 for the lead, and ABC taking second with a 1.9. Tied for third are NBC and FOX with 1.6 apiece. The CW got 0.5.

GHOST WHISPERER kicked off the evening at 8 p.m. with the highest ratings, 6.7/12, for the night. NBC's HOWIE DO IT came in second, 4.6/8, followed by ABC's WIFE SWAP, 3.1/5, FOX's first hour of Bruce Almighty, 2.2/4, and The CW's comedy combo of EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS and THE GAME, averaging 1.1/2.

FLASHPOINT's new season debuted at 9 p.m. for CBS with a 6.3/11. Second place went to ABC's SUPERNANNY, 3.7/6, while NBC's LIPSTICK JUNGLE and FOX's second half of the Bruce Almighty both tied for third with a 2.8/5. The CW trailed with a rerun of the reality horror show 13 - FEAR IS REAL.

LIPSTICK JUNGLE was basically a goner already but these low ratings for the final scheduled episode probably sealed the deal. I was hoping that HOWIE DO IT would be a surprise monster hit because it is going to be the lead-in for FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS starting this week, but it doesn't look like fans were interested in yet another hidden camera show.
