Fringe Comes To A Close And How I Met Your Mother Gets High – The Week In TV Ratings

Jamie Wotton writes for Bleeding Cool.

2013 hit its first full busy cycle of the year as lots of shows premiered and others returned.

On Monday, CBS’ How I Met Your Mother proved, at least financially, it was a good move to bring the comedy back for a ninth year scoring a season high 3.8.

FOX finally had a Monday without The Mob Doctor and aired double Bones instead, earning a 2.1. That’s a better number than the show has hit in a long time.

Meanwhile, The CW premiered the well-received Sex And The City prequel The Carrie Diaries to a low 0.6.

That number isn’t completely foreign to the net, with Hart Of Dixie doing the exact sam on Tuesday. Not a great night all round, either, with New Girl making just 1.9 on FOX.

On ABC, Happy Endings and Don’t Trust The B—- did a 1.3 and 1.1.

Season 12 of American Idol premiered on Wednesday to a 6.0, a lower number than it’s used too, but still strong enough to help FOX out a little, save them from looking completely ruined.

ABC’s shows fared as expected, nothing grand. The Middle got a 2.3, The Neighbors 1.9, Modern Family 4.3 and  2.4. Nashville did an okay 2.2.

Arrow and Supernatural did swell together again on The CW, with the former hitting a 1.1 and the latter 0.9.

Thursday Nights (capital T, capital N) returned to NBC with 30 Rock rating a 1.3, Parks and Recreation a season high of 1.9, The Office a 2.1, and new political comedy 1600 Penn a 1.2.

Meanwhile, The Vampire Diaries took a strong bite, with a 1.4 demo.

Fringe‘s two-hour series finale spun up an alright 1.0 on FOX come Friday, while Nikita did a 0.4 on The CW.

With Animation Domination taking the night off, and it being football that was watched by most, Sunday night scripted shows all belonged to ABC.

Hitting a season low, Revenge scored only a 1.7 while Once Upon A Time wished it could have done better than 2.4.

I’ll see you all next week, with more numbers, speculation and excitement. If there’s something more fun than TV ratings, I don’t want to know it.
