For the second week of the season, the drama (which airs in the TV dungeon that is Friday night) brought in a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic -- up a whopping 66% from the 1.2 it registered during the live viewing. This increase of 66% is far and away the best percentage on TV -- and it's not even close. Another show airing in the same timeslot -- "Supernatural" -- is in second place with a 57% gain up to a 1.1 rating.
Will this be enough to actually save the show? That's where it gets difficult, since the people who DVR the show are not actually helping the advertisers in any way. It's really once again an issue of the timeslot, and Fox wanting to keep the show around to please sci-fi fans.
Do you watch "Fringe" live, or do you prefer to DVR it?
