    Nikita barely above a million. LOL

  • Clarke

    Still not bad numbers for TGIF reboot. Malibu Country should sign Blake Shelton as a regular because I think the numbers will again next week without him.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Too bad Nikita didn’t adjust up. Not that it matters a whit.

    Still one of their better episodes this season. Might bode a one-tenth boost next week.

  • Dillan

    Ouch, Nikita nearly under a million.

  • MichaelChickless

    I think we’ll still be getting a third season of Mike The Tool Man Baxter.

  • John A

    Lol Nikita always loses viewers in the finals.

  • Will

    Here’s hoping for a ‘Malibu’ season 2!

  • NBC Fan

    Maybe, NBC should put Dateline on Thursdays at 10 next year.

  • Alvin

    Nikita is an amazing show and I am confident The CW will give it another season. But, I do wish the ratings were higher.

  • JC

    Never really known this but a 1.5 on a Friday is good, right?

  • Tom

    @JC – Hard to say though considering ABC’s bad ratings recently I’d be willing to say they’re satisfied with those ratings. Still, not 100% sure of that because ABC hasn’t renewed a comedy Friday show in ages….

  • kyle

    You know the Rock Center ratings look good on a Friday

  • Jenny

    Malibu Country’s retention at 93%! Renew, ABC!


    .03 for Nikita–gotta love it

  • kbmv

    Of course it matters that Nikita ratings stink. We are on a ratings site. That’s why we’re here. We point out the good and the bad. I don’t care about Nikita’s pity renewal. The show is trash and the ratings reflect that.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Kbmv: We’re on a ratings site to see whether shows will be renewed or canceled. The ratings have ZERO meaning otherwise.

    Just playing “numbers up, numbers down” is for morons with no life.

  • Nick

    ABC needs to try these sitcoms on Tuesday.

  • Bizarro

    I don’t think Nikita is trash but just that its ratings are trash. It will get a fourth season but the CW might as well tell the writers and the fans that the fourth will be its final season when they announce its renewal and tell them to wrap it up to give the fans a satisfying ending. This show will not be getting a fifth season with it dreadful ratings. It has no room to adjust down and it will reach its syndication next season.

    @Nick, LMS used to be on Tuesday, before they moved it to Friday.
