fringe_jasika_nicole.jpgConsidering the fact that we're officially in February Sweeps, this Friday's line-up struck low numbers. Struggling series " Fringe" and " Nikita" fell to their series lows, as did " Grimm" and " A Gifted Man," though those shows still performed for their respective networks.

The CW's " Supernatural" hit a low for the season. " Chuck" replacement " Who Do You Think You Are" did give NBC a slight boost from last week's "Chuck" series finale.

Per usual, CBS led the night with an average of 9.9 viewers and a 6.4 rating/11 share in households. It was followed by ABC (5.2 million, 3.4/6) which just squeaked by NBC (5.1, 3.3/6). FOX was in fourth place with 3.5 million viewers (2.2/4) and CW trailed with 1.5 million viewers (1.0/2).

ABC and CBS tied in the target demo with a 1.5 rating, followed by FOX (1.4) and NBC (1.2). The CW came in with 0.6.
