    yessss! go grimm! most stable show this season! it’s so well deserved!

  • R

    go cw!

  • Michael

    Damn, the CW repeated quite well on Friday!

  • SarahL

    Nice Grimm, maybe 1.6 is will be this season’s average.

    Man the numbers for ‘CSI: NY’ are pathetic, the demo especially, my God! ‘Made in Jersey’ needed to go, but CSI: NY needs to follow. Sometimes I think CBS canceled the wrong CSI at the end of last season.

    Go ‘Grimm’ and Go ‘Blue Bloods’. I think ‘Grimm’ and ‘Law & Order: SVU’ are the only promising NBC drama shows of this season so far. ‘Revolution’ & ‘Chicago Fire’ have disappointed me greatly and I hope they both crash like ‘Smash’ did last year. ‘Revolution’ is riding ‘The Voice’, but I don’t see a future for ‘Chicago Fire’, Dick Wolf ought to be ashamed… he better stick to cops and courtroom dramas.

    Well, Grimm’s ratings are stable. I suspect NBC’s summer promotion worked.


    Go Grimm!

    @Kelleye, how can CSI:NY ratings be pathetic and not Blue Bloods ratings? They’re identical.

    At least Fringe beat the x factor repeat. I dont think ive ever seen Fringe grow from its lead in.

    Bill, does stability have much positive impact on the network schedulers? Like with “Grimm”, if a show is very consistent with it’s numbers, is that easier on the stomach than a show that kind of bounces up and down, even if the consistancey is a tad lower than the average of the ups and downs? A 1.6 for 4 weeks straight, is that better than a series that pulls 1.6, 1.8, 1.4, 1.7?

  • MJDB

    What’s funny is that both of the only original episodes on that I like got adjusted up.

  • MJDB

    That were on friday night.

  • halloween

    fringe is bad sci-fi…get those aussies off american tv

  • s0303

    yeah grimm…hopefully it can maintain a 1.6 when shark tank moves to 9pm…

  • Brian

    I knew Grimm would adjust up. The show is awesome and keeps my Friday nights interested and intrigued I hope the 5 smilies re-appear now in the index for the show cause these are the same ratings last season that got the 5 smilies :)

    CSI: NY’s rating was not great but it always bouces back just like when it had a 1.4 last Fall and the Fall before. CSI: Miami was cancelled because obviously it’s not making more money than NY(which is a little surprising eventhough Miami is more popular).

  • Andy

    Wow… An Arrow repeat broke the 2 million mark.

  • Kelleye


    I meant the ‘CSI: NY’ ratings in general are pathetic, ‘CSI: NY’ used to pull better than it does now. ‘CSI: NY’ is showing it’s age, even it’s actors are too. Gary Sinise just looks tired and he doesn’t do interviews as much (for the show) anymore.

  • John A

    CSI NY is in its 9th season. Give it some credit. Blue Bloods only in its 3rd season pulling same numbers is sadder.
