    I dont understand why Fox dont air Kitchen Nightmares. It repeats at 0.8-1.0. At least stop house repeats maybe try Glee.

  • rob60990

    Whitney and Nikita reruns adjusted down. :D

  • layla

    supernatural once again beats nikita. & yes i know summer #’s mean nothing but ha ha

  • Lion

    Nikita beat supernatural last week so what is this once again nonsense. But again this means nothing repeats and all but still ha ha ha ha.

  • The-ExtinctLeopard

    Nikita and Supernatural lost a lot of viewers.

  • Geordiegirl1967

    “Nikita and Supernatural lost a lot of viewers.”

    No they didn’t. You know these are repeats?

  • Geordiegirl1967

    Supernatural’s ratings were highest repeat ratings of the week for CW.

  • Val

    Both Supernatural and Nikita had the same demo last week, but Nikita had more viewers. At least the CW knew that they would repeat pretty well, their reruns do better than the new reality summer shows. I like that both shows on a Friday keep beating VD reruns.

  • The-ExtinctLeopard


    I know that they were repeats but the preliminary had both shows well over 1 million viewers.

  • Silvio


    Nikita/SPN at Friday were preempted by baseball games in some markets.
    Preliminaries measure viewership of CW affiliate stations from 8PM to 9PM and 9PM to 10PM. Final ratings measure how many people actually watched Nikita/SPN.
    Shows didn’t lost any viewers, those were not their viewers in first place.

  • Sid

    I knew Nikita and SPN was inflated.

  • thesnowleopard

    Yikes, Nikita. But it doesn’t really matter. At the worst, if the repeats do poorly enough, the CW will just replace them with something else for the rest of the summer. But the show will still be back in the fall.

  • Lion

    Snow what are you even talking about. Nikita still has one of the highest repeat viewings and last week it beat supernatural guess you forgot that didn’t you and it has beaten TVD everytime and doing that fridays so what is with this remark. Wow some supernatural fans is the biggest jerks.

  • Lion

    So why are you not saying that to other CW repeats like TVD huh?

  • The-ExtinctLeopard

    Because the snowleopard is mentally disturbed. Part of treatment is to make fun of shows that she doesn’t watch.

    I can’t wait to see Supernatural get butchered this Fall. And when The CW is done using Supernatural to launch Arrow, they’ll ship it right back to Friday. :D

  • The-ExtinctLeopard


    Since you’re so knowledgeable, can you enlighten me as to which other show THe CW should air repeats of? 90210, gossip girl, Dixie and even TVD all repeat just as poorly.

  • Lion

    Actually they repeat worse and they do not even air fridays

  • Lion

    I think Nikita will be on 8pm again in season 4 and supernatural on at 9pm again. Maybe they even move Nikita to another timeslot to get it more popular for syndication potential

  • Tessa


    Dude, let it go. Nikita got renewed, which is more than it deserved if you ask The Secret Circle fans. Supernatural closed its season as the second highest rated show and was moved to Wednesdays to help launch Arrow and save Wednesday ratings from the disaster that was ANTM. Nikita and Supernatural aren’t even on the same tier and comes fall, we wouldn’t even be talking in the same thread anymore.

    Repeat numbers and total viewers don’t matter. All that matters is this.

    BTW you do realise that wishing CW moves Supernatural back to Friday means wishing it to have more seasons beyond 8, right? I fully support that idea. :)

    @Lion: Hi Bondoel. ;)

  • The-ExtinctLeopard

    @the snowleopard

    CW aired a repeat of 90210 and Breaking Pointe last night and they performed horribly compared to Nikita. Maybe you should focus your hate a little more on them and less on Nikita. ;)


    Well CW isn’t billing the 8th as the final season so I know it will have at least a 9th. What I find hilarious is how The CW loves to use Supernatural and then dump it right after. I mean they did the same thing in 2009 to launch Vampire Diaries and then they shipped it off to Friday; and if I remember correctly, SPN was CWs 2nd highest rated show in 2009 as well. The same thing will happen again because if Arrow turns out to be a monster it, I can’t see The CW wasting it on Supernatural whereas they could use Arrow to launch new shows.
