As primetime continues to lose viewers to the longer days and warmer springtime, Fox’s Fringe last night (1.1/3 in adults 18-49) went up a tenth from last week in its first airing since the sci-fi series was renewed for a 13-episode final season. It was one of only two series to post gains vs. their most recent originals last night. The other was NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are (1.0/4), whose Rob Lowe episode was up 25% from the previous new episode 3 weeks ago featuring Edie Falco. After surging 33% last week, Fox’s The Finder (1.1/4) was down 8% this week as it faced all-original competition in the 8 PM hour vs. all-repeats on the major nets last week.
