    Nikita still stuck at that 0.4. People seriously think it’s going to get renewed?

  • Tom

    Series low for Fringe? 0.8? Ouchhhhhhhhhh

  • scifi

    All current friday CBS shows do worse than A Gifted Man.

  • Simon

    What table are you reading? It says 0.9, not 0.8.

  • rob60990

    Damn Shark Tank is a beast. :D

    “All current friday CBS shows do worse than A Gifted Man.”

    Um no. The highest A Gifted Man ever went was a 1.5. It mostly pulled 1.2s.

  • Moe

    So glad Supernatural stayed steady againt a huge movie hit! But it says Fringe went down in the finals but it s .9 in the table. What is it?

  • Bridget Kelly

    Hah lol @ Nikita ringer is looking better and better!

  • KS

    So, Supernatural undisturbed in spite of the major movie release that day.

  • Jason

    Shark Tank more than doubled Fringe’s rating. :X

  • KS

    In the description above, it was written, Fringe was adjusted down a tenth.

  • Z

    Ringer would of went to .2 if it were in the same position as Nikita
    and it also seems like Fringe was the only show to be affected by Avengers movie.

  • Simon

    This table seems pretty strange, you have Fringe as adjusted down but it is still at 0.9 which is what it had in the preliminary ratings.

  • MTB

    ABC must be making a pretty penny off of Shark Tank. The season production only lasts a week, and it’s the Sharks own money being invested. I really enjoy the show…I had to torrent season one and two as I just started watching this year.

  • Dillan


    Why? Everyone keeps on saying Friday is a bad day for TV, but obviously not for The CW when you have shows like Supernatural which manages to stay steady and get a 0.7 every week. If Supernatural can get a 0.7 every week, then why can’t Nikita get above a 0.4? I’m sure Ringer would be getting the EXACT same ratings as it was getting in it’s original time slot.

    “It comes on a Friday” is a terrible excuse for The CW shows when Supernatural can get a 0.7. Simple.

  • Z

    Looks like it wasn’t adjusted down after all. So Avengers had no real effect then? Most shows just went down a tenth versus last week. Hell some went up.

  • KevinSW

    Damn……supernatural REALLY Affected Grimm huh >_>

  • Tessa

    Glad Supernatural didn’t fall. The show is stead as a rock. :D

  • F.R.

    @Dillan, last year Nikita had a then-series-low 0.6 adults 18-49 rating before it was on Fridays, and it got renewed anyway (after that series low). Dropping from 0.6 to 0.4 after moving to Fridays could still get it renewed.

  • Dennis


    Is that a joke?
    You’re crazy if u think Supernatural effected Grimm

  • Dillan


    Nikita only got renewed because The CW had a choice between that and Hellcats, Hellcats had lower ratings so they cancelled that instead.
