Last Man Standing  and Malibu Country were adjusted up a single tenth, while Fringe and Nikita were each adjusted down a tenth among adults 18-49 versus Friday's preliminary ratings. NBC's Hurricane Sandy special was sustained, so final ratings will not be made available.

    @ John A

    The CW is the toilet, Nikita is the flush

    Beauty & the Beast, Emily Owens & Hart of Dixie are the rud being flushed.

    Good for Last man standings. Curious to see how it will do next week

    And I knew Nikita would be adjusted down but good that it got over a million viewers. Its such a great show.

  • Michael

    As for Nikita, WOMP WOMP WOMP!

  • Hadesa

    ABC ought to stick a drama in at 10pm see how it goes.

  • Skylar James

    Great for MC.

    Lol at Nikita…

  • Oliver


    Supposedly they put Dateline back in the timeslot at the very last moment.

  • Bee

    go reba! excellent start. wow so reba had the 2nd highest start of all of ABC’s new shows? just like last man standing had the 2nd highest new ABC premiere last season lol waiting till nov. 2nd and premiering the day after the CMAs was a very smart move.

    and great for LMS too and amazing growth for shark tank lately.

  • Felipe Nikita

    Nikita no! ):

  • WoWza

    Reba IS a monster.

    TGIF is back…seriously…

  • MattR

    They shifted Dateline from 8 to 10, so they could put on that telethon for Sandy at 8.

  • ATK

    Damn Nikita im glad you got over a million but why couldnt you stay at 0.4 LOL.

  • omabin

    I am shocked at the comedies ratings. ABC must be thrilled about these results, I doubt they had such high expectations for this. But good for them. Poor Nikita though. Also, I was hoping for an uptick for Grimm, but it is still an amazing result.

    “Fringe and Nikita adjusted down.” In two words: Face palm.

    At least Nikita didn’t go lower than last week and was up in viewers. Now, about Fringe: as it is the final season, I don’t really care about ratings.

  • LT

    Totally expected Nikita to adjust down.
