Almost every broadcast program is a repeat tonight, with the exceptions of news magazines 20/20 and Dateline, reality series Kitchen Nightmares, and, the only new scripted program, Nikita. The show has struggled mightily this season as it attempts to outrun the Cancellation Bear and make it to syndication. It has yet to score higher than a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating. But the lack of competition tonight could give it a boost. Do you think Nikita can make it to the lofty heights of a 0.5 or even a 0.6? Make your predictions.

    Nikita just can’t catch a break where Nielsen is concerned, so I expect it to remain at 0.4 – but the buzz over the brutal twist ending of last week’s episode could potentially bump it up to 0.5, I suppose. Stranger things have happened.

    “I am curious why was such a thread not created tuesday when Hart of Dixie and Emily Owens was up against mostly repeats :-/”

    Because Bill and Robert know their readers. An HoD/EOMD thread wouldn’t generate dozens of sophisticated comments like “Bwahahaha, it’ll get the same crap ratings if not worse! What a pathetic FLOP!”, and thus more page hits.
