Fringe showed last Friday’s rating was no fluke, my friends.
The Fox drama delivered 4.6 million viewers and another 1.9 preliminary adults 18-49 rating last night.
Fringe held steady despite its lead in, Kitchen Nightmares (4 million, 1.7), dropping two tenths from last week’s debut.Everybody thought Fringe would have to face Supernatural this week, but that face-off has been delayed until next Friday. The CW decided to give the returns of Vampire Diaries (0.6) and Nikita (0.4) an encore airing instead.
Otherwise, the night was quiet. CBS, ABC and NBC had nothing but repeats and news programs, with ABC’s 20/20 (1.7) rating the highest.
