    Watch it buddy. If there’s one thing that will get you banned from this site it’s sock puppetry. Even your horrible grammar is tolerated, but not that.

    Also lol at people calling out the nonexistent Nikita haters while hating on SPN.

  • Colin

    How is Nikita averaged 710K when half hours were 1.17M and 990k?

  • Jim

    Why is the network hardly anyone watches is getting all the posts?

  • Kelly

    @ Jim

    When something is in jeopardy it draws attention (especially from those that are loyal) and discussion about it. Those viewers that are left (however few it may be) become the most vocal to save what they love.
    A struggling channel gives struggling show ratings. People will speak up more for the dismal rated shows on this channel than the shows that are safe on another channel.

    What did FOX air at 9p?

  • GARebelman

    @Sid kitchen nightmare again so i assume that is a 2 hour average. Comical is that is about what a new Fringe draws

    @Sid/GAR: the info above was just for 8pm and not the two-hour average. Not sure what happened to the info for the 9p Kitchen Nightmares repeat in the table but it was a 1.0 A18-49 rtg and 2.43M viewers.

    @Colin: because that’s how finals often work, especially if there were pre-emptions in local markets. If baseball aired in one or more big markets instead of Nikita the baseball numbers are included in the preliminary numbers but are removed from the finals.

  • Simon

    Seriously guys, repeat numbers mean ZLICH. Quite laughable people getting all worked up over repeats and laughing at low repeat numbers.

    Sorry, but u wrote GTimm… it’s fold.

  • nikki

    Haha nakita got 0.2 that’s just awesome. That show sucks so bad. Watch it get pulled mid season next year cause the ratings are so bad. Lol I still don’t understand how they renewed that.

  • Dean_W

    Good ratings for ‘CSI: NY’. The Season Finale had a 1.2 and a repeat a 0.9. Not big difference but still good ! Long Life Mac Taylor !

  • Captain

    They’re repeats, who cares? Nikita was renewed for a season 3 and will probably be renewed for a season 4 because of syndication.

  • Captain

    I love how people say a show is bad because it’s low rated. Like the public’s opinion is equal to quality. 10 million people watched Rob, clearly America is not the prime arbiter of fine taste.

  • Jane

    communtity is 10000% more original than TBBT such a shame i hope will survive fridays ..

  • Sid

    “Comical is that is about what a new Fringe draws”

    Lol, that’s why I asked. :D

    “Haha nakita got 0.2 that’s just awesome.”

    You do realize it was just a repeat right? Seriously, grow up!

  • Pat

    this nothing! nobody is watching tv anymore!

  • Pat

    This IS nothing…

    Nikki: Better watch out about predictions that a show will be pulled midseason for low ratings. I made that prediction about Fringe this season and was completely wrong! :-)

    My current prediction is that Nikita will stay on the air for its entire season and since the CW is so weird probably a FOURTH season just for the syndication revenue – which is all the revenue the CW will probably ever have sooner or later… :-)

    Which is fine by me, because Nikita is one of the best shows on TV right now, action or not.

    In other news, this week I discovered a new Canadian sci-fi show called Continuum. It’s a time travel story, which usually suck, but this one’s first episode wasn’t too bad considering. As long as they stay away from bouncing people back and forth like Grand Central Station like TSCC did, and just treat the future and past as completely separate, and the future as just the setup from the present and for flashbacks, it might work. Plenty of action, and a hot lead, Rachel Nichols. Could be a decent show.

    @Jim The CW is getting all the posts because of its novel programming strategy. Any other network would have cancelled Nikita and Heart of Dixie because of their pathetic ratings. Instead, Mark Pedowicz renewed both shows and cancelled the more highly rated Secret Circle. Nikita seemingly got renewed because it plays well in foreign countries. Maybe Pedowicz should move to one of those. I sense that a lot of posters are now expressing their derision over how the CW does its programming. Nikita isn’t going to make a miraculous recovery, so leaving it on the air is essentially the CW’s way of telling viewers they don’t count. The same applies to the cancellation of the Secret Circle. So, in light of Mr. Pedowicz’s shenanigans, I’ve decided that it would be best to simply boycott the CW. Adios Mark.
