'FlashForward' hits all-time low

With broadcast upfronts right around the corner, ratings for ABC's "FlashForward" continued to suggest the show will conclude this season. On a night when most programs were fairly steady "FlashForward" (4.7 million, 1.3) dropped 19% from last week to a season low.

Cho ABC's lineup was otherwise down only 3%, with "Grey's Anatomy" (10.7 million, 3.7) winning the 9 p.m. hour, followed by "Private Practice" (8.3 million, 2.8).

CBS won the night with "Survivor" (12.8 million, 4.0). While some reality shows endure considerable ratings shifts through the course of their seasons based on the star-quality of their contestants, "Survivor" (along with NBC's "Biggest Loser") tends to show remarkable steadiness. "CSI" (14.2 million, 3.1) and "The Mentalist" (14.7 million, 3.3) were basically on par.

NBC edged out Fox for third place, with "Community" (4.5 million, 2.0) up 5%, "Parks & Recreation" flat (4.1 million, 1.9), "The Office" (6.8 million, 3.5) down a notch and "30 Rock" steady (5.6 million, 2.7). At 10 p.m., "The Marriage Ref" (5.0 million, 2.2) was up 16% from last week's low.

Fox's "Bones" (8.9 million, 2.5) was down a tenth, while "Fringe" (5.8 million, 2.2) improved by 10%. 

The CW's "Vampire Diaries" (3.4 million, 1.6) and "Supernatural" (2.5 million, 1.2) were on par.
