How long can CBS keep their Friday-night lineup going? This is something that we’re going to be very interested in seeing as the season goes on. They are the only network to air three new, entertainment-related programming hours of any major network right now, but the demo ratings are leaving something big to be desired.
“The Amazing Race” – With a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic, this is a slight improvement on what we saw for the CBS series at this time last week. It’s still probably not enough to make a renewal a certainty for a show that was doing so much better on Sundays. Already, we wish that they had never moved it.
“Hawaii Five-0” – This drama also improved, if only to a 1.3. We really cannot see this show lasting too many more years, even if it is renewed for a sixth season. The biggest thing is that it cannot be cheap to film out in Hawaii, and the show already has enough episodes to get into syndication.
“Blue Bloods” – This show also had a 1.2 rating, which matches the rating for last week. The biggest thing this show has going for it is more than 10 million viewers a week, and while these demo numbers aren’t great, what else is going to do well in this spot?
The only other major ratings news that we have for now is that “Utopia” lost a little of its audience in getting just a 0.6 rating, and it makes us wonder even more how long this show will last.
