Ratings Rat Race: ‘Malibu Country’ & ‘Last Man’ Drop In Week 2, ‘Undercover Boss’ Up

After giving comedies a warm welcome back to Friday last week, viewers turned a cold shoulder last night. In their second week, Last Man Standing (1.6/5) was down 16% from last Friday’s fast national, while Malibu Country (1.6/5) tumbled 27% from its premiere. The comedies surrendered the top spot in the 8 Pm hour among adults 18-49 to CBS’ Undercover Boss (2.0/7) which, after a mediocre season start last week, jumped 33% to finish a close second for the night in the demo behind former time slot rival Shark Tank (2.1/6). With its comedy lead-in dropping big, Shark Tank slipped 9% from last week’s series highs but still led ABC to a nightly win in 18-49. The network topped the 9 Pm and the 10 Pm hours in the demo with Shark Tank and 20/20 (1.6/5, up a tenth from last week) Meanwhile, CSI: NY (1.4/4) didn’t take advantage of its much improved Undercover Boss lead-in, down a tenth from last week.
