'Made In Jersey' absence helps CBS Friday dramas

Posted on

Looks like CBS cancelling Made In Jersey had the desired effect.

With the struggling freshman series yanked off Fridays and becoming the first axed show of the fall, both CSI: NY and Blue Bloods improved in the ratings last night.

CSI: NY (9.4 million viewers, 1.4 adult demo rating) and Blue Bloods (10.5 million, 1.4) both went up 17 percent in the adult demo. CBS added an NCIS repeat at 8 p.m., with CSI: NY moving one hour later.

Also Friday: Fox’s Fringe (2.7 million, 1.0) was steady. NBC’s Grimm (4.9 million, 1.5) was down a tenth now that it has some stronger competition at 9 p.m. from CBS. And ABC’s Shark Tank (6.4 million, 1.8)? The reality show once again proved a great investment, matching its series-high rating and topping the night in the demo.
