'Flashpoint' benefits from time-period shift

CBS saw some ratings benefit to shaking up its Thursday night lineup.

Crime drama "Flashpoint" (6.7 million, 1.7/5) won the 10 p.m. hour last night, climbing 13% compared to last Friday’s performance and was up 6% from last week’s “Swingtown” in the time period. The crime drama was down 15% from the overall "Swingtown" average in the time period, however.

CBS placed second in the demo for the night overall, with its other original program, “Greatest American Dog” (6.1 million, 1.5/6), dropping a notch.

Fox won the night with originals of “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” (7.3 million, 1.7/6) and “So You Think You Can Dance” (8.3 million, 2.7/9).

NBC placed third with “Last Comic Standing” (4.3 million, 1.7/6) matching its lowest-ever rating, and “Fear Itself” (3.2 million, 1.1/3).

ABC was fourth with repeats and “Hopkins” (5.2 million, 1.6/5).
