    Dan: I agree about the Nikita finale. Very well done – wrapped up the conflict from the last two seasons and segued right into another. I always advocate that action shows should enlarge the conflict in each season and Nikita has done this very well.

    I’m hoping they can come up with a decent villain to replace Percy next season because Xander was a fantastic actor and played the part perfectly. I know Amanda will be back (thank God, she’s such a babe!), but I’m not sure about the other new guy. He seems sinister enough but I’m not sure he has Percy’s flair.

    Tid bit: I just discovered that Xander played John Connor’s foster father, Todd Voight – the guy who got a T-1000 spike through his mouth – in Terminator 2! Didn’t recognize him at all as he was much younger. :-)

    Some Tv shows were airing earlier in the week in another locations what means they were also being realised online before it airs on its original day of bradcasting a couple of those shows were NIKITA and MISSING and Now that the season is over I have some questions that i was avoiding ask before cause I didnt wanna to promote this so more people would stop watching the show.

    So can anyone explain to me how thaey calculate the ratings if the show arir twice a week…

    on Nikita’s case the show was airing on thursdya in Canada if Im not mistaken (on the last few weeks) that is the why the ratings dropped sunddenly.. so the episode was realised online thursday night before it airs on Friday.

    So how can the network know the actuall rating is the audience gets split..

    just glad the Leviathan are gone on Supernatural, hopefully the show gets back to its roots next season. It was a great cliffhanger though.
    and a better time slot next year

    @Steve It aired on Thursdays at 10pm on CTV. 8pm Friday on the CW.

    I hope that Nikita can remain at a somewhat satisfactory level ratings-wise next season. Syndication should be a great help towards getting a fourth season if it stays steady-ish (or maybe even goes up a bit) from September onwards.

    @Coolioni,
    You mean 1-5, because SPN drastically changed with season 6. There was no connection between Sam and Dean for the first couple episodes. I’ve always thought the one thing that hurts the show is the title. People have their mind set when they hear the word supernatural. It’s ashame its on cw because the detail and writing for the 1st 5 seasons were some of the best on t.v. Especially seasons 2,4, and 5.

  • Will

    For most shows, ratings and renewal are dependent on the demo. However, Mark Pedowitz considered more than that in his decision to renew Nikita: “I’m a big fan of the show. It works. It may not be [big in] 18-34 but it works. I’ve got more fan mail saying, ‘Thank god you picked it up, we really like the show!'”

    Interesting fact, Nikita received more renewal fanmail letters than any other show on the network.
