Update: Grimm averaged a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, just shy of its high set in its season one debut.

Grimm returns for its second season tonight and a special Monday late-summer run.  On the heels of the Summer Olympics (and its lead-in, Stars Earn Stripes) how will it do?  Grimm drew a series high 2.1 live+SD adults 18-49 rating in its first season premiere on Friday, October 28 last year. It also snared its series high in viewers (6.56 million) in its season 1 premiere. Feel free to explain your prediction in the comments!

    It’ll get a very solid 2.5.

  • rob60990

    If it doesn’t hit a series high of at least a 2.5, it would be a disappointment.

  • Mi

    I hope for a new high

  • DeeAgeaux

    I don’t think NBC has done a good enough job advertising that GRIMM is coming back early. Many people will think new shows are not coming back till late September.

    Grimm – 1.3
    Stars & Stripes – 1.0

  • anonymous

    I’ve seen tons of promos for Grimm’s second season here in Canada on CTV.

  • Mike

    I agreee with DeeAgeaux. Although it will pull in solid numbers, NBC didn’t do enough advertising that GRIMM will be back. I heard from a friend of facebook last night after midnight and I’m always watching TV!

  • Jon23812

    I predict somewhere between 1.4 – 1.8, but think 1.5. This is judging from last seasons ratings.

  • Anthony

    I’d say around a 1.8/1.9 mainly because I don’t think Stars Earn Stripes will do very well.

  • Joseph

    ESPN’s pre-season NFL game will likely dominate prime-time viewing tonight (August 13th).

    “Grimm” won’t get the huge numbers NBC is hoping for, but might hit a 2 in the 18-49 demo.

  • Paul

    I predict 8 million 2.5 in the demo.

  • Scott M

    I’ll go with a 1.9, but could definitely see lower. I doubt there’s much carryover from the audience for the Olympics.

  • Atlanta

    Against Monday night football and the finale of The Closer, the numbers, imo, will be disappointing to NBC. Myself, I will be recording it.

  • AniMatsuri

    I’m just wondering, will NBC make Monday a permement spot for Grimm if the ratings are good enough?

  • Lane

    I hope for atleast a 2.0 But I guess 1.9

  • herewego

    I voted 1.8-2.1 but my gut feeling tells me I’m gonna be disappointed, probably gonna get mid 1’s at best… Hope my gut is wrong…

  • John A

    Ill go with a 2.0. It gets what 1.2-1.5 on friday so a 2.0 is the max i see it getting.

  • Spencer

    I’d say 1.8 but hopefully it can get a 2.0. I saw lots of advertising with it so hopefully new people will start watching. Though, Grimm has a very well established fan base, so even I’d the numbers are somewhat low, they are consistent.

  • cimmer

    I’m going with a lower vote (although I’ll be happy to be proven wrong). I too don’t think NBC has done a good enough job about getting the word out that the show is back early and on a different night and time. I know they figure the Olympics was the perfect time to advertise but I just don’t think so. I also don’t like 10 pm on Monday for the show. Frankly I’ll be recording and watching The Closer/Major Crimes and I’m a Grimm fan.

    High End
    Stars Earn Stripes 2.8-3.2
    Grimm 2.0-2.5

    Low End
    Stars Earn Stripes 2.0-2.5
    Grimm 1.5-1.9
