Made in Jersey is eying the metaphorical exit ramp, dropping 27 percent in the demo this week to a CW-like 0.8.
CBS’ freshman legal drama also fell 13 percent to 6.7 million viewers, yet still led its time slot in total audience.
ABC’s Shark Tank (6 mil/1.7) edged out Grimm to deliver Friday’s best demo rating (rising 13 percent week-to-week), while Blue Bloods (9.6 mil/1.2), despite dropping 15 percent, as always copped the most total viewers.
Elsewhere on Friday:
* CSI: NY opened CBS’ night with 8.4 mil and a 1.2, dipping 8 percent from its season opener. That means Jersey dropped a third of its demo lead-in, which as you can see above does not make Frank Reagan happy.
* Of genre-TV fare, Grimm held steady at 5.2 mil/1.6, while Fringe (3.03 mil/1.0) dipped a tenth in the demo.
All told, CBS averaged the most viewers, while ABC scored the nightly demo win.
