    Grimm still has it high ratings and took second place, this is still excellent :)

  • Kavyn

    Nikita’s drop in viewers was due to the fact that it was online prior to the show’s airing on the CW. Too bad for yet another 0.4 though. Take it off Friday and put TSC back on there, pair Nikita with Arrow on another weekday.

    Good to see SPN adjusted up. I hope season 8 would be its last, although in CW’s current state, they could want to keep it for more seasons than that..

  • jamandas

    Glad for SPN. So happy for Fringe getting a new season. Maybe next year they won’t put Fringe, SPN and Grimm all up against each other on fri. I hate having to choose what one to watch first.

  • Michael

    This is Nikita’s fourth or fifth 0.4 this season?

  • KS

    I hope the following the thing, will not affect the ratings of the next episode ;)


    Castiel’s return

    *****Spoiler ends***

    Its just my opinion.

    You’re of course completely entitled to your opinion, but I have seen tons of reaction to Felicia in that episode and yours was the only negative one I’ve seen. (That doesn’t make your opinion invalid, just in the minority.)

    I had never seen Felicia in anything she did before, and was completely sold on her the moment she started dancing in the elevator. She was very endearing, and someone I could look up to as well as relate to. Like it could’ve been any one of us in her shoes, and we’d hope to be as brave as her despite our fears. Plus it was an extremely well written episode, fun, fast-paced and rocketing the mytharc forward.

    Nice Fan Excuse Bingo

    lol Nikita lower than GossiP Girl

  • Lane

    Grimm is on CBS? lol Anyways Grimm is still doing solid. Awesome for Fringe >:)

  • hello

    Clearly Grimm is on CBS in the other universe and for some reason they got those Grimm-numbers

  • Justin121

    Is Fringe FOX’s The Good Wife?


  • Tessa

    Great for SPN. But most of us expected this.

    I’m taking this opportunity to announce that when SPN hits inevitable rating lows next week it will be because once again Castiel is in the episode. It would have by no means anything to do with the Avengers opening or anything else on the Fan Excuse Bingo, unless they decide to put,”Castiel was in it” on the Bingo card.

  • Dennis

    Its great not to have to worry about Fringe’s ratings anymore :) :)

    I do however, expect a massacre next friday will Grimm, Fringe and Supernatural.
    I don’t think Nikita could go any lower could it? lol

    Alternate Universe CBS was also stupid enough to put Grimm on Friday nights at 9 pm against Fringe and Supernatural.

  • Pepper

    I’m happy SPN got adjusted up for this week, but I think it will be down to a 0.6 and 1.55 million viewers this Friday because of the Avengers opening.

    Nikita is done. It will be getting 0.2s and 0.3s if renewed. Even the C Dub can’t afford that.

  • cece

    oh now I’m relaxed !!! Good for SPN!!!It’s still solid this year never went down 0.7/0.8 !!

  • Melanie

    YAY SPN!!! Steady as she goes! :)

  • Mary

    Yay for SPN and CSI: NY !!!

  • Tessa

    Oops, I see KS beat me to the announcement. As always he is the cleverest pea in the pod. ;)
