    Grimm’s ratings are pretty consistent, all things considered.

  • Jamie

    Great for ANTM. A show in it’s 19th season pulling better numbers than most shows on The CW.

    They should air it on Thursday’s in summer. Less competition it may get a boost.

  • F.

    Thats a shame! I wanted Nikita to get 0.2 or less.

  • Ben Thompson

    Either there’s an error or WWYD was adjusted down 3 tenths.

  • Richard castle

    @ superpop

    nikita will not be renewed, please tell me what people are thinking when they say that. even for the purposes of syndication, tell me what network would take a show that for an original episode can barely pull off a 0.3??? if nikita were to get syndicated, it would be pulling 0.0’s. networks don’t want flops for syndication, they want shows that people will ACTUALLY watch.

  • Jamie

    @F.

    Why would you wish failure on a show?
    If you don’t watch a show why do you care?
    If you don’t like a show, why bother commenting?

  • Brian

    Go Grimm :)

  • poweranimals

    If Nikita gets a 0.2, will the CW still renew it?

  • forg

    Great for Shark Tank, it matched baseball even!

  • danny94

    Surprised how consistent Grimm is to be honest I find it so dull, but it seems to have found a loyal audience.

  • JJA

    If Nikita does get renewed, it will probably be the lowest rated show in broadcast network history to get renewed. Although, I’m not so sure it will get renewed. We shall see.

    @F.–you a disgruntled Secret Circle fan?

  • Sid

    Nikita will still air all of its episodes ordered for Season 3 and will see a final 4th Season. :D

  • Sid

    On another note, GO SHARK TANK! :D

  • THE OLD MAN

    So two 2.0’s for a Fri night & one for 2 hrs! Who wooda thought.

    Grimm 1.5 top scripted & takes hour. Go Grimm!

  • Michael

    Those numbers are so embarrassing for Nikita, but it seems like Mark Pedowitz likes it.

  • Richard castle

    @superpop.

    yea i know and you just dont seem to get it! MAYBE IF I CAPITOLIZE IT FOR YOU. NIKITA IS NOT MAKING ANY MONEY FOR THE NETWORK. THERE IS NO USE FOR THE SHOW IT SHOULD BE CANCELED. ANY OTHER SHOW ON THE NETWORK COULD BE AIRED RERUNS ON FRIDAYS AND BE PULLING A 0.3 OR BETTER. NIKITA IS NOTHING BUT DEAD WEIGHT FOR THE NETWORK AND IF PEDOWITZ KNOWS WHATS GOOD, THE SHOW WILL BE CANCELED. IT DOESNT MATTER IF THE SHOW IS DOING WELL IN AFRICA. IT ISN DOING WELL HERE AND IF HE WANTS THE NETWORK TO GET BETTER RATHER THAN CONTINUING ON THE DOWNTREND THAT IT IS IN, THEN NIKITA SHOULD BE CANCELED! PLAIN AND SIMPLE

  • Sarah

    Wow, baseball actually got a 2.0.

  • omabin

    Yay for Grimm! Sorry for Nikita, but I dont think its ratings matter to be honest, it will be renewed (or not) because of syndication, it would never have acceptable ratings anyway.

  • Richard castle

    @ SID.

    Dream on if you think nikita will get a 4th final season hahahahahahaha. youre dillusional. im sure pedowitz wants his network to float not sink. im a die hard Ringer fan, but i’m really happy it was canceled and i think that pedowitz made the correct decision for the network in canceling it. The show was put out of its misery, and so should nikita

  • THE OLD MAN

    FINAL POST TOTAL FOR FRI PRELIMS: 715
