Flash Forward has retained its no.1 position as the most popular series on a Thursday night, having drawn 10.8 million viewers overall. It dropped 8% from its premiere but that wasn’t enough to give the competition a chance to take the lead.
The Vampire Diaries retained its popularity, pulling 3.5 million viewers to nab second spot in its 8pm timeslot, and Supernatural held firm with 2.6 million viewers in its wake.
Fringe pulled in 6.2 million viewers which was an improvement over last week, but not enough to drag it from fourth position in its timeslot. Fox are claiming they are happy with this given that the network’s performance is now higher on a Thursday night than last year thanks to scheduling Fringe on the night. TV By The Numbers, who have proven remarkably accurate in the past, don’t share that view, listing Fringe as one of Fox’s scripted shows now in some danger of not being renewed for a third season.
