Friday Primetime Results:

    If NBC cab run ‘encore telecasts’ I think it’s ok to run an ‘encore comment’ in this post as it relates to this post as much or more than the Friday ratings post …

    Grimm continues to do fairly well for NBC on a dead night [cough] … not bad for a 200 year old. Grimms Fairy Tales: 20 things you didn’t know raises a few questions in my mind …

    1. How many years does it have to be on to cover 210 stories?
    2. Is NBC working on a spin-off called Schönwerth?
    3. If you are within shouting distance of Toronto are you attending any of the events?
    4. Do any of you ladies know what I’m wishing right now?

    Here’s hoping Grimm continues to stay steady, or even increase, in the ratings and that we can enjoy many more years to come.

    NBC should probably be working on developing another Grimm-like series for the 8pm Friday hour for next season. They kind of have a hole in their line up at that hour now. I think that if they can give viewers another series that will appeal to Grimm fans, and even non-Grimm fans, they would have a really solid Friday night.

    I’ll be watching Grimm tonight, looking forward to it!

    this season of Grimm episode count should be extended
