Eliza Dushku, Dollhouse
Sigh. Here is how Friday's fare fared:
A repeat of Ghost Whisperer's season opener topped the hour with 8.35 million total viewers. Trailing both a warmed-over Wife Swap (4.09 mil) and Howie Do It (3.89 mil), Sarah Connor Chronicles came in fourth with 3.84 million viewers, up four percent from its Friday time-slot premiere.
Dollhouse came in third behind a Flashpoint repeat (8.06 million viewers) and Supernanny (5.25 mil), dipping 10 percent from its premiere to 4.22 mil. That said, Dollhouse actually gained viewers over the hour. Friday Night Lights surged 14 percent to just under four mil.
A Numbers repeat was No. 1 with 7.99 million viewers, followed by 20/20 (7.27 mil) and Dateline (5.57 mil).
Conan O'Brien's final Late Night drew the talker's best numbers since Dec. 8, 2006, representing a 44 percent increase on his average for this season.
