THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 5/11/12

      Even with finales on hand, nothing stirred viewers. FOX:  THE FINDER aired what turned out to be its series finale and FRINGE had its season finale, with a respective 1.1 and 1.0, up very slightly for both. &n...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/13/12

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’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 3/23/12

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 – 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 – 4/27/12

> FRINGE ties for its network lead on the night!  (Don’t read the fine print.) FOX:  The newly-renewed FRINGE went up an essentially meaningless 0.1 to 1.1.  Since THE FINDER (facing original competition on...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 5/4/12

Apparently ABC viewers are unimpressed by superheroes. ABC:  On a night when the other networks were mostly down (were viewers at the multiplex to see the near-record Avengers opening?), all of ABC’s shows were up, and t...
