The above ratings are the preliminary (early) figures. The final numbers won’t be out until after the weekend and some shows may be adjusted up or down.
Dr Ken was the surprise package on Friday. Number 2 show on the night and increased on the ‘Last Man Standing’ lead in. Great start, will need to see how it does week 2 & beyond but, if it holds close to this weeks number, Likely to renew IMO.
‘Hawaii Five -0’ has been a good companion for ‘Blue Bloods’ for a few seasons now. I couldn’t call a renewal on this rating but the network makes a lot of money from syndication sales so if it makes financial sense it could renew. 50/50 network call IMO.
Finally, ‘The Player’ was one of a quite a few repeats. NBC gave it a 8pm rerun on Friday as a sampling exercise I suppose. 3.5 million viewers ain’t too shabby but it’s Thursday night rating is too low for it to get beyond the initial 13 eps at the moment.
