FOX gets a win...
Both The Following and Bones managed to improve from last week. The Following kept most of its debut audience and went up in the demographic, while Bones gained 700,000 viewers and half a point in the demographic. Meanwhile, ABC and The CW had gains for The Bachelor and The Carrie Diaries and NBC's Deception managed to stop it's continuing fall. Most of this was because CBS ran reruns last night.
FOX won with 9.6 million viewers and a 5.8 rating/9 share in households. It was followed by ABC (7.2 million, 4.8/7), CBS (6.8 million, 4.4/7), NBC (5.3 million, 3.4/5) and The CW (1.1 million, 0.7/1).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, FOX won again with a 2.9 rating, followed by ABC (2.1), NBC (1.9), CBS (1.7) and The CW (0.4).
