Numbers of Interest - Television Ratings for Thursday 11/12/09

ABC continued to win Thursdays with the combo of FlashForward (2.6), Grey's Anatomy (5.6), and Private Practice (3.9). Flashforward has stabilized around 2.6 which is a respectable number, but definitely not what ABC was looking for. The good thing is that it is in a difficult timeslot and outperforming the low-tier ABC shows such as Castle and The Forgotten.

CBS did quite a bit better with Survivor (4.0), CSI (4.1), and The Mentalist (3.6). CSI was above The Mentalist for the first time in weeks. It was also above CSI: New York which got 3.8 on Wednesday. It would be embarrassing if the spin-off did better than the original for a crossover.

NBC was down with Community (2.1), Parks and Recreation (2.1), The Office (4.2), 30 Rock (3.0), and The Jay Leno Show (1.6). Community and Parks seem to be neck and neck. I'm guessing NBC would pick Community over Parks, but really, if one gets canceled and the other gets renewed, please don't recreate the Dollhouse TSCC fight.

Without the World Series, Fox was way down with Bones (2.9) and Fringe (2.2). Bones continues to do very well, and beat FlashForward in the 18-49 demo, and total viewers. Fringe while still struggling recovered from the terrible 1.7 last week, matching the same number from the last new episode (before last week's) which was almost a month ago.
