* “Fringe” rebounded despite simultaneous gains made also by brutal timeslot competition “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Office” and “CSI.” (Last year the sci-fi drama came back stronger as the Big Three 9 p.m. shows went into repeats; perhaps it will again.)

How it compares to the other Fox shows: 18-49 (prior Thursdays in parentheses; repeats in gray): 5.0 (4.6) (1.9) (4.9) (2.1) (4.7) (4.6) (5.9) (5.6) (1.7) Glee 4.0 (3.7) (----) (1.4) (3.6) (3.6) (4.0) (3.8) (4.2) (1.2) House 3.9 (3.7) (----) (1.7) (----) (3.0) (4.2) (3.7) (2.2) (2.9) The Simpsons 3.4 (3.8) (----) (2.0) (----) (3.4) (4.0) (4.5) (2.4) (2.1) Family Guy 3.1 (3.0) (----) (1.2) (----) (2.6) (3.1) (3.1) (----) (1.9) Cleveland Show 2.7 (2.6) (2.5) (----) (----) (2.6) (2.7) (2.5) (2.7) (----) Bones 2.7 (2.5) (----) (2.4) (1.6) (2.5) (2.5) (3.1) (3.1) (----) Raising Hope 2.6 (2.7) (1.4) (----) (----) (3.1) (3.0) (2.9) (2.9) (----) Hell’s Kitchen 2.5 (2.9) (----) (1.7) (----) (2.5) (3.0) (----) (----) (----) American Dad 1.9 (1.7) (1.8) (----) (----) (2.0) (2.0) (1.9) (2.1) (0.7) Fringe 1.9 (1.8) (----) (1.6) (1.9) (1.9) (2.1) (----) (----) (1.6) Lie To Me 1.8 (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Human Target ---- (1.3) (----) (----) (1.1) (1.4) (1.7) (1.9) (2.4) (----) Running Wilde 0.7 (0.8) (0.7) (0.6) (0.8) (0.7) (0.7) (0.9) (0.5) The Good Guys

* Most series were up Thursday night, but “Community” and “30 Rock” slipped and “The Apprentice” hit a new season (and series?) low.

How it compares to the other NBC shows: 18-49 (prior Thursdays in parentheses; repeats in gray): 8.1 (7.4) (7.3) (9.8) (7.4) (6.7) (8.0) (7.3) (9.2) (9.6) Sunday Football 3.8 (3.6) (3.8) (4.0) (3.4) (3.8) (3.5) (3.7) (4.4) (1.2) The Office 2.6 (2.6) (2.7) (2.7) (2.3) (2.6) (2.5) (2.8) (3.6) (----) Outsourced 2.5 (2.4) (2.4) (2.4) (2.6) (2.6) (2.5) (2.7) (2.9) (----) Biggest Loser 2.2 (2.4) (2.4) (----) (2.2) (3.1) (2.1) (2.6) (2.6) (----) 30 Rock 2.1 (2.0) (2.2) (1.3) (2.7) (2.3) (2.6) (2.8) (3.2) (----) Law & Order SVU 1.9 (2.0) (1.9) (2.4) (1.9) (2.2) (1.8) (1.9) (2.2) (----) Community 1.9 (1.7) (1.9) (1.2) (2.4) (1.9) (2.4) (3.2) (----) (----) Law & Order LA 1.8 (----) (2.0) (1.9) (1.9) (1.9) (1.9) (2.0) (2.0) (----) Chuck 1.8 (2.1) (----) (2.0) (1.9) (2.0) (2.1) (2.0) (2.5) (2.7) Parenthood 1.7 (1.7) (----) (2.0) (2.2) (2.2) (2.4) (2.9) (3.6) (----) The Event 1.4 (1.3) (1.3) (1.0) (1.2) (1.6) (1.3) (1.6) (1.4) (1.2) Dateline 1.2 (1.4) (1.4) (1.4) (1.3) (1.3) (1.3) (1.3) (1.4) (1.5) The Apprentice 1.2 (1.2) (----) (1.3) (1.6) (1.5) (1.7) (2.1) (2.3) (----) Chase ---- (1.2) (1.3) (1.4) (1.5) (1.4) (1.5) (1.6) (2.1) (----) Undercovers 0.6 (0.4) (----) (0.5) (0.6) (0.9) (1.0) (1.1) (0.9) (2.3) Outlaw 0.6 (0.6) (0.6) (0.7) (0.9) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) School Pride

* “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” doubled what the “Grey’s” repeats usually pulls at 8 p.m. This could explain the bump the new “Grey’s” enjoyed.

How it compares to the other ABC shows: 18-49 (prior Thursdays in parentheses; repeats in gray): 4.8 (----) (4.8) (5.1) (4.7) (4.8) (4.6) (4.6) (5.1) (1.5) Modern Family 4.3 (4.0) (4.3) (3.9) (4.0) (4.6) (4.6) (4.6) (5.4) (1.8) Grey’s Anatomy 4.0 (4.0) (4.0) (4.3) (4.0) (4.0) (4.3) (4.8) (5.1) (----) Dancing With The Stars (Mo) 3.8 (4.1) (3.5) (3.9) (3.9) (3.9) (4.4) (4.3) (----) (----) Desperate Housewives 3.4 (3.4) (3.2) (3.1) (3.2) (3.5) (3.3) (3.8) (3.5) (----) Dancing With The Stars (Tu) 3.0 (----) (3.0) (3.3) (3.1) (3.2) (3.0) (2.8) (3.4) (1.3) Cougar Town 2.9 (2.9) (3.9) (2.7) (2.7) (3.0) (2.9) (2.8) (3.2) (----) Private Practice 2.8 (----) (2.9) (2.9) (2.6) (2.5) (2.5) (2.5) (2.7) (1.1) The Middle 2.5 (2.5) (2.3) (2.5) (2.6) (2.7) (3.0) (2.9) (----) (----) Brothers & Sisters 2.5 (2.5) (2.7) (2.9) (2.5) (2.7) (2.6) (2.8) (2.7) (----) Castle 2.3 (----) (2.5) (2.5) (2.1) (2.1) (2.3) (2.2) (2.5) (----) Better With You 2.2 (2.5) (1.8) (2.4) (2.3) (2.3) (2.6) (2.0) (1.4) (1.0) Extreme Makeover 1.9 (1.8) (1.7) (1.3) (----) (----) (----) (----) (1.4) (0.8) Primetime 1.7 (1.7) (----) (1.9) (1.8) (1.7) (1.7) (2.1) (2.3) (----) Detroit 1-8-7 1.7 (2.2) (----) (2.0) (2.2) (2.3) (2.7) (3.2) (----) (----) No Ordinary Family 1.6 (1.6) (1.4) (1.8) (1.8) (1.5) (1.9) (----) (1.2) (1.4) AFH Videos 1.5 (1.7) (1.6) (1.5) (1.2) (1.8) (1.1) (1.6) (1.9) (1.3) 20/20 1.2 (1.2) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Supernanny 1.1 (1.0) (2.2) (2.1) (----) (1.4) (1.3) (1.7) (2.3) (----) College Football

* After losing to “Private Practice” for the prior two weeks, “Mentalist” put itself back at first place at 10 p.m. “Practice” apparently got the bump from an episode about a sexual assault. Maybe they should do that every week; it seems to work for “SVU.”

How it compares to the other CBS shows: 18-49 (prior Thursdays in parentheses; repeats in gray): 4.5 (4.3) (4.7) (4.4) (4.4) (4.5) (4.5) (4.8) (4.9) (2.3) 2½ Men 4.3 (4.2) (4.7) (4.2) (4.1) (4.3) (4.1) (4.4) (4.9) (2.4) Big Bang Theory 3.9 (4.0) (2.3) (4.1) (4.3) (3.9) (3.8) (4.1) (4.0) (1.8) NCIS 3.8 (3.1) (3.9) (3.4) (3.7) (3.5) (3.5) (3.6) (4.0) (----) Criminal Minds 3.7 (3.5) (3.6) (3.7) (3.5) (3.5) (3.9) (3.7) (3.9) (----) Mike & Molly 3.6 (3.5) (3.7) (3.2) (3.3) (3.5) (3.5) (3.9) (3.6) (1.7) How/Mother 3.5 (3.2) (3.7) (3.5) (3.6) (3.8) (3.8) (3.5) (4.0) (4.0) Survivor 3.3 (3.3) (2.3) (3.4) (3.9) (3.5) (3.4) (3.7) (3.4) (1.5) NCIS LA 3.1 (2.8) (3.3) (3.3) (3.4) (3.1) (2.7) (3.1) (3.4) (----) CSI 3.0 (2.8) (3.0) (3.2) (2.9) (3.3) (3.0) (3.0) (3.4) (1.7) The Mentalist 3.0 (2.9) (3.4) (3.1) (3.1) (3.2) (2.9) (3.3) (4.0) (----) Shit My Dad Says 2.9 (3.0) (3.4) (3.0) (2.9) (3.0) (3.0) (3.2) (3.1) (----) Rules of Engagement 2.8 (3.3) (2.6) (3.4) (3.5) (3.8) (3.4) (3.8) (----) (----) Amazing Race 2.8 (2.9) (3.0) (2.8) (2.9) (3.1) (3.5) (3.6) (3.9) (----) Hawaii Five-0 2.7 (2.9) (3.0) (3.5) (3.6) (3.7) (4.0) (3.8) (2.4) (1.3) Undercover Boss 2.3 (----) (2.6) (2.5) (2.7) (2.7) (3.2) (----) (2.0) (1.1) CSI Miami 2.2 (2.2) (----) (2.4) (2.6) (2.5) (2.5) (2.5) (----) (----) Good Wife 1.9 (1.8) (2.3) (2.1) (2.3) (2.5) (2.2) (2.5) (2.9) (----) The Defenders 1.7 (2.0) (1.8) (1.8) (1.7) (1.9) (1.7) (2.0) (0.9) (----) CSI NY 1.7 (3.3) (1.4) (3.4) (2.2) (3.7) (2.0) (3.1) (2.7) (1.0) 60 Minutes 1.6 (1.8) (1.8) (1.8) (1.7) (1.8) (2.0) (2.2) (----) (----) Blue Bloods 1.4 (1.5) (1.4) (1.4) (1.1) (1.2) (1.2) (1.4) (0.6) (----) Medium 1.3 (1.4) (1.1) (1.4) (1.1) (1.3) (----) (1.1) (1.1) (----) 48 Hours

* “Vampire Diaries” and “Nikita” were weak in repeats.

    Fringe Isn't Going to Be Cancelled

    by Crow3711

    I think FOX is really pretty happy with the fact they have a hardcore scif-fi drama thats actually holding a strong, dedicated audience during the most competitive hour in weekly television. Its not like they have something else to replace it with that would do better or command any kind of loyalty. Sure, they'd be happy if it had even more viewers, but I think as it stands they are really pretty satisfied with how it performs. Especially having a .2 gain mid-season. That's awesome. If they moved it to another night it would undoubtedly do better, but it just allows fox to grab a solid bit of audience during a night when people are unfailingly watching other channels more. Fringe is doing okay in such a crazy slot. I predict at the very laest a season 4.

    Vampire Diares is considered a hit?!!

    by Tall_Boy66

    Whenever people talk about the vampire craze, they mention a pop-culture holy trinity: Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries. That shit barely pulls a 1.5 and it's a huge hit? I know CW has less stations than the Big Four, but c'mon!

    by ccchhhrrriiisssm

    Hopefully, they will start this show at a decent time...and not against Big Bang Theory.

    BTW: Leno pulled an 8.0 rating last night...

    ...while Conan sank to a 1.75 rating.

    WTF is Pawn Queens?

    by andrew coleman

    Please tell me it's a couple gay guys who own a pawn shop. I'm kidding of course. Fuck these made up ratings. I know Fringe is watched by way more than these made up numbers say. Big Bang Theory is #1? Bull shit.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 11:05 p.m. CST

    Leno pulled an 8.0? How is that possible?

    by andrew coleman

    Only Football ever gets that type of number. Also NBC vs. TBS... So look at 1.75 against anything else on cable. Conan is doing pretty fucking good. I'm sorry but watch Leno one night... Then watch Conan... Sorry but Conan's show is just hands down funnier. Also being on TBS it almost doesn't matter what he gets. What else would they be showing? Probably a movie you'd just skip by like the Wedding Planner. Don't worry about Conan. Also who cares about any of these guys? It's all about Craig Ferguson... In your pants!!!

  • Nov. 20, 2010, 1:36 a.m. CST

    It's not possible. He's using total viewers

    Who told you that "total viewers don't matter?" That is asinine! <p>While the most coveted age group for viewers is 18-35, advertisers also covet ages 36-49 and 50+. </p><p>The younger group simply represents potentially new customers and impulse shoppers. Period. That is certainly lucrative -- but the advertising rates between the 18-49 age group and the entire age group is marginal at best. </p> Still, Leno was able to average 0.9 in the younger age group for the week...while Conan yielded a slightly higher number (1.0). Unfortunately for Conan, he was only able to pick up a few more viewers.
