TV Ratings: 'Dollhouse' & 'Sarah Connor' Don't Set FOX Friday on Fire

Fast National ratings for Friday, Feb. 13, 2009

Why mess with success? New episodes of its Friday night dramas brough home another win for CBS with a 6.0 rating/11 share among households. ABC was second with a 4.5/8 while FOX and NBC tied for third place with a 2.6/5 each. The CW was left far behind with a 0.8/1.

Among 18 to 49-year-olds, ABC was also tops with a 2.4. CBS held a 2.1 over FOX's 1.7 and NBC's 1.1. The CW was last with a 0.5.

CBS started off at 8 p.m. with "Ghost Whisperer," 6.6/12. ABC came in second with "Wife Swap." The return of FOX's "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" to its new night tied with NBC's "Howie Do It," with a 2.4/4 for the hour. The CW started off its evening with repeats of "Everybody Hates Chris" and "The Game."

At 9 p.m., "Flashpoint," brought CBS down to a 5.7/10, but still handily won the hour. ABC held on to second place with "Supernanny," and FOX was solidly in third with the much-hyped premiere of the new Joss Whedon series "Dollhouse," 2.8/5. A new episode of "13: Fear Is Real" mustered a mere 0.6/1 for The CW.

ABC took the 10 o'clock hour -- and had the highest-rated, most-watched show of the night -- with "20/20," 7.0/12. CBS slipped down to second with "Numb3rs," 5.7/10 and NBC finished off the night in third place with "Dateline."
