Fox Thursday hits repeats of Bones #3 and Fringe #4


FOX aired encores of BONES (1.5/5) and FRINGE (1.1/3) last night.


ABC’s Flash Forward (1.8/6) and Grey’s Anatomy (3.6/10) both posted their lowest original ratings ever (excluding clip shows), dropping -36% and -29% from their prior season averages with first-run episodes (2.8/8 and 5.1/13, respectively). Private Practice (2.9/8) was on the low side, down -17% from its 2009/10 original average (3.5/10).

Due to the nature of live sports, Fast Nationals for CBS are approximate.  Opening night of the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16 posted a 3.8/11 for the night, up from last year’s games which delivered a 3.5/9 in the Fast Nationals and went up to a 3.6/10 from 8-11p in the Finals. 

NBC’s Community (2.0/7) and Parks & Recreation (1.9/6) were both about average while The Office (3.5/10) delivered its lowest original of the season, down -3% versus last week and -15% from its prior original average (4.1/11).  At 930p, 30 Rock (2.9/8) was down -3% from last week, while week five of The Marriage Ref (2.5/7) posted its lowest rating to date at 10p, falling -14% from last week and -17% from its prior average on the night (3.0/9).
