We don’t normally post “news” on the blog but I know the move to Friday night worried a lot of fans. This was just released by CBS today and thought our non-social medial friends would like to see the good news as well.
From CBS Press Express:
CBS FRIDAY POSTING ACROSS-THE-BOARD GROWTH WITH SUCCESSFUL NEW “HAWAII FIVE-0” AND “BLUE BLOODS” 9:00-11:00 PM CRIME BLOCK.
Both Series Notching Time Period Increases in Viewers and Key Demos

CBS’s Friday lineup is posting across-the-board growth paced by its new 9:00-11:00 PM crime block of HAWAII FIVE-0 and BLUE BLOODS, according to Nielsen most current ratings through the first three weeks of the season.
