The 200th episode of "Smallville" ruled 8 p.m. Friday night, while NBC's latest reality effort was one of the night's lowest-rated shows.
"Smallville" (3.2 million viewers, 1.3 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) was up 18% this week and matched season highs. The lead-in also helped "Supernatural" (2.8 million, 1.2) grow 33% to be very competitive at 9 p.m.
CW ranked second last night, with CBS winning the evening with a steady medium "Medium" (6.1 million, 1.2), "CSI: NY" (9.5 million, 1.7) down 11% and and "Blue Bloods" (10.3 million, 1.7) falling a tenth.
ABC and NBC tied for third with the former airing repeats and a news magazine. In addition to "Dateline," NBC rolled out new reality show "School Pride" (2.9 million, 0.9), which was down 25% from "Law & Order" in the hour last year. Fox was in last place with "Good Guys" (2.3 million, 0.8).
