Friday Nights the address is CBS - Friday 31 October 2008 (US)

As you can see from the chart below - American programmers haven't given up on Fridays to the extent that Australian nets have but when a rerun of NCIS stomps on new programming everywhere else - you have to wonder how long before Fridays in America go the way of Saturdays.

The CW got viewing figures which would be decent for a cable channel, not a national network with a free to air affiliate in almost all markets.

Meanwhile what's with the performance of Wife Swap? If the US versions of Deal or No Deal and 5th Grader are half as crap as their Australian counterparts than I pity the fools tuning into these at the expense of what is one of the few genuinely funny reality programs on the dial.
