Private Practice soared week to week, up 40% in the ratings, largely due to it’s rape/recovery storyline that began this week. Grey’s Anatomy was also up this week.

Fringe and Bones returned after several weeks from Baseball hiatus, and both returned sharply down. Fringe should be on cancellation watch.

NBC and CBS were typical of Thursday nights; The Big Bang Theory was the night’s most watched show.

    Fringe will stay right where it is. What else does Fox have to put there on Thursday nights? Other networks have kept low-rated, crtically praised shows on the air simply for cachet purposes (“Chuck” and NBC, for example). It will at least play out its back 9 and wrap as a series. Odds are it could even get picked up by a cable network.
