    Now I may finally get to watch it (after Grimm of course, while regulating Touch to Hulu and continuing to record Nikita).

    This is just rotating deck chairs on the Titanic. The reruns will do no better than Cult while Cult will likely do the same as the Friday reruns.

  • hello

    Might be a good move

  • R

    It should have aired after Vampire Diaries and Beauty and the Beast should have moved to Tuesdays. Even if it’s renewed, Beauty and the Beast will be moved so that a new series can benefit from the Vampire Diaries lead in so they may well have moved it now to see how it does. Bizarre scheduling.

  • jake

    It could be a good move because fridays are much geek-gore oriented than any day of the week and could bring new viewers, it it raises a tenth or two, ir would be enough to keep it on the schedule and finish its run.

  • Ken

    I’ll keep it in my DVR until I know it’ll last long enough to check it out.

    By the way, runners of the website, Google Chrome is trying to block access to your site, claiming it has malware in it.

    this news means its as good as cancelled

  • Dave

    Dead show airing at this point.

    CW still trying to make Beauty and the Beast happen I see.

    Nikita has never been safer, so that’s at least something. I liked the first episode, but I won’t watch more. No point I’m getting invested in a dead show. I wonder if Nikita could even survive a fifth season if this trend continues.

  • Nikki

    ha that was quick.

  • quadrey

    Well the move might be good in the long run since its debut week

    Tuesday Ep# 1 0.3/1 0.86, Ep# 2 0.3/1 0.82
    Friday (R) 0.2/1 0.63

    With a friday rerun a combined viewing of the pilot was 0.5/1 with 1.49 million viewers, as long as it stays steady on friday it might survive. if the rerun was kinda on par WHO KNOWS?

  • Rachel

    AKA canceled!!!

  • robin

    whats the point of repeating BaTB its already dead too. they should’ve repeated arrow or TVD

  • quadrey

    Nikita can be a lead in now ! awesome :)

  • quadrey

    I think they might move a troubled drama to that slot if the repeat performs well for next season smart move CW !:)

    You might want to get that fixed before all your traffic gets driven away :(

    I honestly think Nikita is a good pair. It might do better, or not decline.

  • JacobYates

    I think that it’s funny how when the word missing is used in the article that it’s highlighted since it used to be a show. Same with Grimm, Vegas, and other shows. If you search Vegas in the search bar, the results go back to 2007 simply because the word Vegas is used.

  • Bitter Ringer Fan

    let’s see if it improves or maintains but i doubt it will sink any lower since Nikita is a better fit than Flop of Dixie.
