Will this further shake CBS’ commitment to scripted programming on Fridays? Last night, a Royal Wedding special at 8 PM (1.7/6, 8.6 million) delivered a rare decisive No. 1 finish in the hour for the network among 18-49 and outranked the network’s scripted entries in the slot this season – Medium, The Defenders and especially Chaos. CBS’ CSI: NY (1.7/5, 9.2 million) was flat, as was Blue Bloods (1.6/5, 9.8 million).

ABC’s Shark Tank (1.2/4) was down 14%. It was followed by a Royal Wedding 20/20, which drew a 1.5/5. NBC’s Friday Night Lights (0.6/2) finished dead last in the 8 PM hour, plummeting 33% from last week. Dateline (1.2/4) was down a tenth.

Fox’s Fringe (1.3/4) was up a tenth from last week, Kitchen Nightmares (1.3/5) was down from two weeks ago. CW’s Smallville was down 20% vs. last week in 18-49 (0.8/3) but up 14% in 18-34 (0.9/3), Supernatural was flat in 18-49 (0.9/3) but up 29% in 18-34 (0.9/3).

Don't bash CBS. Check out the other networks ratings for the night. They suck.

Flat? It is almost incomprehensible that CSI NY and BB each drawing close to 10 million viewers...
