    There was no adjustment for Fringe.

  • Brian

    Grimm still has it high ratings and that’s awesome!

  • Felipe

    Nobody deserves these Nikita haters, puff.

  • Restless

    I agree with you Mae.

    And yeah, Adrian, I was hoping for a Fringe/Supernatural tie. ^^ Who knows, maybe the Netflix deal will encourage more live viewers and Supernatural will beat Fringe next season.

  • Phil

    Believe me, TSC, Ringer and any other show besides 90210 and TVD, would be doing worse than Nikita. Probably 0.2 and less than a million viewers IMO. Yet, I still believe Nikita is in trouble.

  • Tony

    I doubt Supernatural will ever beat Fringe,
    Fringe will always be 0.2 or .03 points ahead…

  • Z

    Yes Nikita is in trouble 90 percent sure it will get cancelled with Ringer TSC and HoD. Actually between Nikita and HoD will get renewed.

  • Ron

    Yeah Shark Tank will be going for a while. Even if one or more of the sharks drop out they can always find more. But those kind of numbers are basically about the same as most of their midseason dramas are doing only they cost a heck of alot more.

  • Kavyn

    Hopefully Nikita rises next week! Good job SPN :D

  • SmG

    NBC has picked up the Ryan Murphy comedy New Normal and the J.J. Abrams-Eric Kripke thriller Revolution to series.


  • Pete

    How many 0.4s is that for Nikita now and to think some people think it has morwe chance of being picked up than TSC LOL delusionoids

  • Pete

    @ Phil

    I love how you always assume you know exactly how a show would do in another time slot, you must have secret powers or something.

    And there we have the kiss of death for Fringe ratings always being higher than Supernatural … the people @ the CW thank you Tony! :-) Lets see if I can help out some more …

    There is no way a new episode of Fringe is ever going to get just a 0.6 rating! EVER!

  • KS

    Most exciting new show – Revolution.

  • Tony

    @ Fake Me Out

    But.. It won’t….

    Next Week is the last episode..should go up to a 1.0 or 1.1

    Next season only has 13 episodes, And I’ll predict they will avg 1.2

  • Thomas

    I hope that there will be renew between The Finder and Nikita.

  • Bridget Kelly

    Um if ringer were in Nikitas time slot I’m sure it would be getting 0.6-0.7 at the veryeast. The only reason it was doing bad In the spring is because Tuesday 9pm is the death slot. Not to mention it had no lead in for most of spring. And had very little promotion. So ringer would be doing better than Nikita. And as I recall, ringer hasn’t gotten as many 0.4’s as Nikita, there for ringer should be renewed.

  • Z

    It wouldn’t come close to .6-.7 and Friday is a death slot also and Nikita gets even less promotion. And it had no lead in cause the CW gave on it because it fell so fast in the fall. And continued low even with lead in during January and February.

    So we have the highest opening weekend ever with the Avengers demolishing the record previously held by Potter … and the second highest Friday numbers ever … and a minimal impact on the TV numbers. What gives?

    Box Office Mojo reports “The audience was split evenly between those above and below 25 years-of-age, and it was 60 percent male.” … are none of these people Nielsen box members? Must you forgo evenings out to be a member of the Nielsen family? Or are the Nielsens really a meaningless, non-representative statistic as so many have claimed? I think the ball is in their court to offer some proof and/or explanation why the largest opening ever had so little impact on their numbers.


    Help save Endgame and watch season 1 on Hulu and RIP Goober

    And as I recall, ringer hasn’t gotten as many 0.4?s as Nikita

    I know you’re probably not interested in facts that don’t fit your own narrative, but…


    They’ve both gotten .4 the same number of times (5).
