THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/26/12

A happy Halloween for Grimm. NBC:  The 1.5 for busted pilot MOCKINGBIRD LANE probably isn’t enough to bring the costly project back from the grave.  However, the boost it gave GRIMM–at 1.9, the highest-rated show ...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/19/12

Not a lot of support for scripted programming. ABC:  The Alphabet took the night, winning each hour with its unscripted trio of SHARK TANK (2.0, the highest rated show of the night), PRIMETIME (1.6) and 20/20 (1.4). CBS:  Som...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/12/12

  No one at CBS misses MADE IN JERSEY. CBS:  Without Jersey breaking up the night, both CSI NY and BLUE BLOODS were up by 0.2 to 1.4, giving the latter a tie for the 10PM lead.  Even the NCIS rerun at 8PM manage...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/5/12

It’s getting to be time for the season’s first cancellation. CBS:  MADE IN JERSEY plummeted to 0.8, below even (gulp!) Fringe, and can’t be long for this world.  It probably didn’t have much effect on ...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 9/28/12

Another step toward the end of original programming on Fridays. CBS:  MADE IN JERSEY is the worst flop of the season’s first week, a disaster at 1.1 any way the numbers are cut.  The show could only tie a repeat of the ...

THE SKED NIELSENWAR CHRONICLES – Friday

  Friday isn’t yet Saturday for the broadcast networks–there’s still plenty of original programming on the night.  But declining ratings and revenues have made it something like the network Island of Mis...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 9/18/12

NBC’s preseason continues to play out well. NBC:  GO ON has yet to face any real competition, but it held well with a 3.3 last night, and the episode was better structured than last week’s, with one central Matthew...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 9/14/12

ABC’s Friday makes its season debut. ABC:  SHARK TANK, PRIMETIME and 20/20 all arrived for the new season with great consistency:  1.7/1.7/1.8.  That was enough to win every hour (and the night), although none too impr...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 7/20/12

A night, sadly, for news shows. NBC:  We don’t know at this time what the ratings have been for the 24-hour cable news networks that have been covering the Aurora shootings non-stop since Thursday night.  Friday evening...

THE SKED FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 7/13/12

  Step up, one and all, for the death-defying showdown of… 2 newsmagazines? ABC:  On another deadly summer Friday, 20/20 beat Dateline with a 1.3 as the only original programming aired by any broadcast network for t...

THE SKED FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 7/6/12

If the networks don’t care, why should the viewers? ABC:  ABC can take deep pride in being the only network last night to earn a rating over a 1, reaching all the way to a whopping 1.2 off a 20/20 with that score. NBC:...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 6/22/12

Hello?  Anyone?  Bueller? NBC:  The Peacock had the highest-rated show of the night with 1.3 for DATELINE, but still lost the evening because of  the 0.5/0.4 for its WHITNEY/COMMUNITY rerun duo. ABC:  And the winner isR...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 6/8/12

  Not much to say about a night when the networks weren’t even trying. ABC:  Winner of the night with a whopping 1.1 average.  The high point was a 1.4 for 20/20 at 10PM. NBC:  The only network to air anything new...
