chuck bank of evil 320 TV Ratings: 'Chuck' slips, but 'Grimm' helps NBC to demo winFast national ratings for Friday, Dec. 16, 2011

Even in reruns, CBS remains powerful on Friday nights. The Eye continued its reign this week, on a slow Friday with few remarkable changes. “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” didn’t suffer (or profit) from announcing its cancelation this week — it remained steady. Meanwhile, on NBC, “Chuck” was down half a million viewers and “Grimm” continued its successful streak.

CBS scored just a smidge over 6 million viewers with a 4.0 rating/7 share in households. Thanks to a boost from “Grimm,” NBC followed (4.8 million, 3.1/5) with ABC not far behind (4.5 million, 3.0/5). FOX drew 3.1 million viewers (1.8/3) and The CW 1.2 million
