    No, Bridget Kelly – as others have told you – the final demos posted by Statistics are the correct figures. Some of the figures you posted might be with “Live + 7 day” results added in – that don’t count for most networks much at all. I have to check my DVR records.

    Good God we finally found a poster worse than Bondoel!
    Bridget Kelly will mysteriously disappear when Ringer is announced cancelled next week.

    Bondoel/Mikey and Bridget Kelly would be perfect for each other! Their babies would have powers of delusion so strong they could actually create an alternate reality!

    thesnowleopard & Psycho Bob have posted incorrect numbers too. thesnowleopard did it purposely, I don’t know about Psycho Bob though.

    Bridget Kelly is just trolling.

    I don’t get it The Finder has more viewers than Fringe each week yet fringe is renewed AGAIN! Why cant it just die already and give The Finder a chance! please!

  • Cory

    @sharp … I’m with you there. I was prepared to throw a party if Fringe got canceled but it didn’t. However, this is going to be THE final season for Fringe and then we will be rid of the horrible show once and for all!

  • Psycho Bob

    the numbers I posted for Nikita were taken directly from this site and were the women 18-34 demo only numbers which are the key numbers for the CW if I’m not mistaken…

    anyway if anyone wants to correct me, I started here:


  • Takita

    Sarah michelle gellar is pregnant, so there’s no chance of ringer get renewed.
    And Nikita is so much better!!

  • RandomCommentor

    Unlikely Nikita gets renewed just due to the season thing combined with bad ratings. Next will be its 3rd, which means the network gets pressured for a 4th afterwards for syndication (which is what CW’s end goal is with all shows).

    I personally like the show though and wouldn’t mind seeing it renewed.

    Just want to comment on your post about Grimm possibly doing better on another night. I am both a Supernatural and Fringe fan and I’m sure I would’ve given Grimm a chance if it had aired on another night or in the 8pm slot on Friday instead of against my two favorite shows. I may try to catch some reruns of it over the summer but I’ll never watch it live as long as Supernatural is airing opposite of it. Of course I don’t have a nielsen box so I suppose none of this matters, but I do think you have a valid point.
