Fast National ratings for Friday, April 4, 2008
The return of two drama series carried CBS to a ratings win Friday night, but even with those shows back, the demographic ratings weren't much to celebrate.
In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS was the only network to break 2.0, winning the night with a fairly soft 2.3 rating. NBC took second with a 1.6. ABC and The CW tied for third at 1.4, while FOX drew a 1.3.
"Ghost Whisperer," 6.0/10, put CBS on top at 8 p.m. ABC got a 3.7/7 from an "America's Funniest Home Videos" rerun. A "Bones" rerun on FOX earned a 3.1/6, edging NBC's game show "Amne$ia." The CW's "Friday Night Smackdown!" delivered a 2.4/4.
CBS held the lead at 9 p.m. with "The Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular," 5.4/9. NBC moved up to second with "Dateline," 4.5/8. "Canterbury's Law," 3.9/7, came in third for FOX. "Smackdown!" improved to 2.8/5 in its second hour, moving it ahead of the return of "Duel" on ABC.
