    Be interesting to see how Touch will do. My guess 1.2 for the premiere and at 0.9 for rest of the season.

    If every CW show was on another network their ratings would be higher

    Nikita – steady :)
    Amazing episode as well on Friday!….i was very meh! on the Fringe finale, and the ratings are pretty sad.

    Ok ok so Malibu Country did hold on to a good chunk of its LMS lead in. Still not bad.

    Cue the people saying Fringe’s finale numbers weren’t still pathetic, because apparently it makes them feel superior and special.

    Series probably made money for Fox first two seasons, lost money next two seasons and did about as well as Fox expected in the final season.

    Now syndication looms. Hopefully, WB won’t find any takers, but it’s more than likely that they will.

    As for Touch, its ratings could rival those of Nikita.That’s if Touch actually makes it back to screen.

    @Gomer and @tscchope, y’all are some fools, how about promoting a show you like rather than ragging on a show you don’t. you must live AMAZING lives to end up that way

  • random hater

    @panda22 Fringe>Nikita by a LOT, a very large amount. and its pretty obvious

  • tv_viewer

    I predicted a 1.1 for the 2 hour series finale. Even though the show lost money for FOX, Fringe was allowed to end with a proper conclusion.
