tv ratings raising hope bones down fox TV ratings: 'Bones,' 'Raising Hope' drop in Friday premieres

Moving to Fridays was not good to the ratings of “Bones” and “Raising Hope” on FOX. Both shows dropped significantly from their most recent airings — “Bones” on Monday (Nov. 11) and “Raising Hope” last spring in its season finale.

Only the smallest bit of consolation for the FOX shows can be found in the fact that ABC suffered ratings losses for all of its programs, while CBS saw “Undercover Boss” drop.

“Blue Bloods” on CBS won the night in total viewers, with 7.3 million watching over the 10 p.m. hour. ABC’s “Shark Tank” had the highest Friday ratings in the 18-49 target demo.

CBS led the night overall with 6.1 million viewers and a 9.96 rating/11 share in households. ABC was next (4.0 million, 6.0/7), followed by NBC (3.2 million, 4.8/5) and FOX (2.3 million 3.7/4). The CW landed at the bottom of the night with 0.7 million viewers and a 1.0/1 share.

For adults 18-49, CBS stayed on top with 1.5. ABC (1.3) and NBC (1.2) followed, while FOX (1.0) and The CW (0.4) kept their places at the bottom.
