    Nikita scored the same as a TSC repeat on Thursdays after TVD. Just sayin…

  • Khan

    damn it Fringe!!!!

  • GARebelman

    Hopefully Grimm goes up more as there are no more repeats. Well deserved renewal after so many proclaimed it DOA before it even aired.

    Warner will have to really sweeten Fox’s tooth to keep Fringe at this rate.

  • halloween

    Fringe and Finder are dead? Where are the so called fans?

  • Hades

    SPN scored the same as the last new episode of Nikita. Just saying.

  • halloween

    CW ratings suck. Just saying

  • rob60990

    Tell them Hades. :D

    Hope Shark Tank starts beating Undercover Boss soon.

  • Mel

    I do not see hour of Supernatural coming back…. this hellatus this killing me

  • Chris

    I am a Fringe fan like many of us. We just don’t have a Nielsen Ratings box. Just saying.

  • Hades


    Tell us something we don’t already know. I dread to think what next seasons ratings are going to look like.

  • DougF

    SPN repeat on a Friday 0.4/1.03 million

    Gossip Girl 0.5/0.98
    Ringer 0.4/1.10
    Top Model 0.5/1.08
    Hart Of Dixie 0.5/1.20 million

    Those four were the only new episodes of shows on the CW last week.

  • Hades


    I think its back with a new episode this week

  • Anthony M

    Good thing Fringe is ratings proof, besides everyone knows the Nielsen ratings are archaic including Fox..

  • The End


    Correction, Fringe is dead amongst the Nielsen box holders, alive and well in the DVD/Blu Ray market.

  • Hades



  • GARebelman

    Seeing Fringe, Nikita and Supernatural fans argue over the ratings every Friday and Monday when the finals come out really make Bill and Robert happy. Just saying :P

  • Michael

    There’s simply no way Fox is going to renew Fringe….. TERRIBLE RATINGS!

  • ABC hater

    Grimm is a self-starter. Nice to see it. :)

  • s0303

    a repeat of who do you think you are? ties fringe in the demo and has twice the overall viewers…pretty sad…

  • The End


    Personally I’m a fan of neither show. Just thought I’ld respond to someone claiming Fringe has no fans. Of course DVD/Blu Ray sales mean nothing against low TV ratings but leave room for Warner Bros to offer a much lower fee to Fox to get the show back on the air.

    Although I don’t personally care if any of these shows get renewed or cancelled. I firmly believe Fringe has a fanbase outside the Nielsen households.

    Same for any shows, but I just see people speaking about this show too much. Doesn’t seem to be the talk of a show only getting 3 million lol

    Ah well. Rambling a bit but strongly feel Fringe has fans.
