* The big news is the final season premiere of “Smallville” hit a better number than any episode of the series aired last season, and improved hugely on the 0.9 scored by its 2009 season premiere. I imagine viewers are returning for the same reason viewers returned to “Lost” after it announced its end-date. * “Supernatural,” despite the move from Thursdays, improved on its 1.2 2009 season premiere, no doubt helped by “Smallville’s” surge. “Supernatural’s” 5th-season peak was a 1.4. * CBS’ latest Tom Selleck crime drama, “Blue Bloods,” was Friday’s top show. Its premiere matched “Medium’s” top score in that timeslot last year. * “CSI NY,” new to Fridays was way way down to a 2.0 from its 4.0 Wednesday 2009 season premiere and lower than the 2.3 nadir it hit last season. It was still Friday night’s second biggest. * “Medium,” in an earlier timeslot, was way down from its 2.1 2009 season premiere. Its 2009 nadir was a 1.3. * Critically panned Jimmy Smits drama “Outlaw” collapsed in its regular Friday timeslot, scoring lower than a repeat of “Modern Family.” * “The Good Guys” arrived on Friday at its all-time low, below the 1.0 scored by the second season premiere of “Dollhouse” last fall and the 1.1 scored by the series premiere of of the sitcom “Brothers” last autumn.

First-Run Episodes of Returning Series: 2.0 - (2.7) (2.5) (2.5) (2.3) (2.6) (2.4) (2.6) (3.0) (3.3) (3.4) (3.5) (3.5) (3.1) (3.2) (2.8) (3.2) (3.8) (2.8) (3.0) (3.2) (2.9) (3.3) (4.0) CSI: NY 1.4 - (1.6) (1.5) (1.8) (1.4) (1.7) (1.3) (1.6) (1.9) (2.1) (1.8) (2.2) (2.1) (1.8) (1.9) (2.0) (1.9) (1.9) (2.1) (1.9) (2.0) (1.9) (2.1) Medium 1.3 - (1.0) (0.8) (0.8) (1.0) (0.7) (0.8) (1.0) (1.1) (1.0) (1.0) (1.2) (1.1) (1.1) (1.2) (1.1) (1.1) (1.1) (1.1) (0.9) (0.9) (0.9) Smallville 1.3 - (1.3) (1.2) (1.1) (1.4) (1.2) (1.2) (1.1) (1.2) (1.0) (1.1) (1.2) (1.3) (1.2) (1.3) (1.2) (1.4) (1.2) (1.2) (1.2) (1.2) (1.2) Supernatural 0.9 - (1.1) (1.0) (1.1) (1.0) (1.2) (1.2) (1.3) (1.4) (1.5) The Good Guys

    Good Guys is ace!

    by CaptainBass

    Why aren't more people watching it? It's good fun, and makes me laugh a lot more than 99% of the "comedy" shows that are on...

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 5:49 p.m. CST

    say whaa SUPERNATURAL is reported here?

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    did AICN get themself a real TV contributor? anyway episode was weak, but ill keep tivoin and watch... i kinda wished this season would somehow lead to the Winchesters explore or expand on last season like on odin, ganesh, mercury, death, etc or aliens

    my ideal Supernatural season premiere

    by smackfu

    would have actually had the Yellow Eyed Demon back, who actually torches Dean's girlfriend and doses the kid with demon blood, and having Dean pick up the John Winchester role of obsessed hunter-dad. Or a demon plan to reboot the apocalypse, only with Dean and Sam's roles reversed. What they actually did with the potential was pretty weak. I hope they have something good planned.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:06 p.m. CST

    it would be interesting if later turned out that

    by smackfu

    it's Lucifer who's back, not Sam, and the whole season is one big revenge play on Dean.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:09 p.m. CST

    Smallvile premiere was awesome! Supernatural

    by Dreadlock Holmes

    was kinda meh. Kripke needs to come back. Soon.

    by Shermdawg

    I think Dean's visions and the preview for that episode actually foreshadows something like that happening. What if Sam is the new Yellow Eyes? <br><br> While I think this season is pretty unnecessary, and the premiere was kind of disappointing, I think my opinion of it may change once we get a clear idea how and if Yellow Eyes figures into things.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:23 p.m. CST

    forget yellow eyes

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    i think grandpa is gonna be the big bad or something close to it... who wouldnt want the shocker as a season long bad guy?

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:25 p.m. CST

    and that kid is a terrible actor

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    the one that actually played Dean jr was way better

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:58 p.m. CST

    Smallville had higher rating share than that!

    by jazzylg

    Smallville's numbers were 2.9 Herc!

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 7:16 p.m. CST

    Smallville was awesome, this season should be some great TV

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    still one of the best shows on TV right now

    You officially have a shitty taste in TV. Seriously, get that checked out. <p>As for Supernatural, I like it, but wish they could bring back the father if they could bring back the rest.

    Eat a dick, RaptorJesus

    by IndyCollector

    Smallville IS awesome. Just keep watching Glee then, faggot.

    Young Sam just made an appearance on 5-0.

    by Shermdawg

    Cool.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 9:32 p.m. CST

    Supernatural

    by lock67ca

    Kind of a weak premiere. I was afraid of that. Even if this year ends up with a Season 1 vibe, it won't suck. But it will prove how unnecessary this season was. There's no way in hell (literally) you can top last season, but I do hope it improves.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 12:06 a.m. CST

    Finish teabagging me first, IndyCollector

    by RaptorJesus

    Seriosuly, whya the fuck is wrong with you nerds? You're either hardcore superman fans are appreciate something slightly true to the material to make up for the shitty movies, or....actually, I've got nothing else.<p> The lack of budget, wooden acting, reuse of sets, idiotic liberties they take with the show and Emo Blur and British Zod more than make it suck. The only reaosn I still watch is too see just how much more it can suck.

    by Drsambeckett1984

    Frankly I'm surprised you managed to spell such a big word as 'intellectual'. <P> If people like different shows to you, there is zero need to insult us, why don't you piss of with your comments, and jog on!

    Supernatural felt a bit underwhelming for a season premiere...

    RaptorJesus - You may have a point.

    by I_Love_LanaLang

    RaptorJesus said, "Smallville f*cking sucks." While I don't agree that the show completely 'sucks', it could be a lot better. How, you ask? Obviously, if the lovely and incomparable Lana Lang was still on the show, then Smallville would be the finest show on television. She MADE that show a succes! She DOMINATED every scene she was in! She was stabbed in the back by the ungrateful producers, writers, and directors of Smallville. I will never forgive them for their horrendous treatment of Lana. NEVER!!!

    HUMAN TARGET should affect SMALLVILLE's ratings this Friday

    by SpyGuy

    Love both shows, but I'm recording HUMAN TARGET and watching SMALLVILLE live. FOX needs to get its shit together and move HUMAN TARGET to Mondays at 9 p.m. EST, because I need something better to watch between HOUSE and HAWAII FIVE-O than THE NON-EVENT.

    First ep of "Outlaw" was 90 percent bad.

    by kabong

    Second ep was 95 percent bad. <p> That just leaves Ellen Woglom as the good percentage.

    The Good Guys

    by frozen01

    was fun. And Bradley Whitford? Good God can that man act! I remember him from his West Wing days, and sometimes I had a hard time believing it was him, except for the briefest of moments when he let the accent slip a little. Other than that, he's completely absorbed in the role. <p>There were some over-the-top cheesy moments, but for a series premiere, it was very entertaining and pretty funny.

    Supernatural was okay.

    by BurnedNotice_Dude

    It wasn't that great of season opener. Enjoyed seeing Grandpa (Mitch Pillegi). Still, it just seemed kind of like something was missing. Unless the boys resign then this is the last season. Hope they go out with everything.
