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.

    go top model nikita grimm and shark tank

  • Kavyn

    Ah well, it was nice while it lasted haha. At least Nikita’s up from last week. It only dropped 30k viewers from the prelims and finals.

    woot for LMS! Not a fan of the recasting though but i can get used to it

    I hope these ABC ratings hold up or at least not fall below 1.7

  • Michael

    Isn’t Kelly Clarkson guest starring on Reba? That should keep their ratings up!

  • Oliver

    It’s nice when a plan comes together.

    ABC originally commissioned LMS with the intention of it being an anchor for a new TGIF block this season, and it seems to have worked out exactly how they planned.

    *Malibu Country, with Reba*

    Am I the only one who thinks ABC should try out Last Resort at 10? Shark Tank could prove to be good lead-in, the two shows seem somewhat compatible, and the only true competition is Blue Bloods, which is in the low 1’s these days… Couldn’t hurt. I mean, if NBC can convert a sitcom from single to multi-cam to try and save it, this isn’t such a stretch of the imagination.

    What does sustained mean for the Hurricane Special, why aren’t they available?

  • Oliver


    Nielsen doesn’t provide numbers for broadcasts without commercials.

    “What does sustained mean for the Hurricane Special, why aren’t they available?”

    There were no ads, so we will not see any ratings, since the only reason to have ratings is the ads.

    Glad CSI: NY was not adjusted down :)

  • M

    LOL, Nikita adjusting down is not a surprise.

  • CrimTV

    @Oliver and Bill

    Thanks :)

  • karinpsy

    Fringe last year was 3M, today 2,5 M ???

  • TomSFBay

    Surprising numbers for ABC. I pegged thes as DOA. Now let’s see if they hold.

  • david

    ABC did great for the night. Three shows had a 2.0 or above. To bad Nikita went down in the deimo but good to see it have more than 1 million viewers. I hope it goes back to a .4 this week and stays there.

  • Michael

    im hoping NBC opts and puts community and another sitcom on friday instead doing the same thing over and over and getting demolished by The Big Bang Theory

  • SarahL

    Grimm nice and steady.

  • JonM

    Good for LMS and CSI and not bad for Nikita. Too bad it got adjusted down though but i still think it gets renewed. Such a great show.

  • KS

    Is there any chance Nikita might be getting better A25 – 54 numbers, considering the fact that, it skews old, just like CBS shows?

    Please note: This is just a speculation. I don’t have any numbers or any proof for the above asked question.
