via press note:

Last Friday’s “Grimm” has increased its adult 18-49 rating by 1.14 points going from “live plus same day” ratings to “live plus three day” results from Nielsen Media Research (from a 1.58 to a 2.72). The 1.14 increase is “Grimm’s” biggest gain ever going from L+SD to L+3. The 2.72 is “Grimm’s” highest L+3 rating since the show’s second season premiere on Monday, Aug. 13.

“Grimm’s” 2.72 in L+3 extends its lead over the time-period competition of Fox’s “Fringe” (1.66 in L+3), CBS’s “Made in Jersey” (1.22) and ABC’s “Last Resort” encore (1.13). “Grimm’s” margin of victory among those networks in L+SD was 44 percent (1.58 vs. 1.10 for “Made in Jersey”) and that advantage grew to 64 percent in L+3 (2.72 vs. 1.66 for “Fringe”).

L+SD ratings include live viewing and time-shifted viewing on the night of the initial airing, while L+3 adds in additional time-shifted viewing that occurs within three days of the live telecast.

    wow…maybe those monday episodes helped more than i thought :) go grimm…

  • senor chang

    not saying that it would happen, but I wonder what would happen if both Grimm/Revolution held up this season and we saw them on Wednesdays next fall with Revolution leading into Grimm.

  • senor chang

    if the numbers are this good, though, it should probably just keep anchoring Fridays.

  • RyanCanada

    i love this show! one of my favorites, i hope they increase there season order from 22 – like 26

  • Dan S

    I can easily see Revolution anchoring its own night next year but Grimm needs to stay on Fri. And to think so many people a year ago was writing this show off before it even premiered.

  • John_M

    Yay – this means nothing

    @senor chang…i think after testing it on monday (and a few weeks on thursday last season) they should just keep grimm on fridays…it’s a very solid performer there and hasn’t shown very little increases on other nights…

    Yay! Great show. Hope it continues.

  • Heather

    Last year I had to choose between Supernatural and Grimm on Fridays, with Supernatural winning. Since Supernatural was moved to Wednesday I can finally watch them both.

  • SarahL

    Yay, Grimm! If only these people would watch live.

    WoooHoooo! Go Grimm Friday!

  • Chuck

    this is a great show. If its from the same writers who did Angel, which I also enjoyed. I think it will continue success. The key to its longevity is how things play out with the chief of police. Wish they would have kept mother Grimm around a little longer though, she’s was cool.
