    LOL Nikita. :D

  • SJ

    Are those total viewer numbers for Kitchen Nightmares right? I find it hard to believe it tied Undercover Boss.

  • forg

    LMS adjusted down in viewers but glad demo stayed. Crazy stability at 1.5. Two more episodes left I hope it can rise

  • TV

    Cancel Nikita already.

  • forg

    Shark Tank was also adjusted down in viewers it had 7.45 viewers good thing demo was not affected, just like seeing a Friday show get 2.0

  • Kavyn

    Unfortunate for Nikita but at least it’s up by 300k viewers from last week (I think).

  • BJH

    I don’t think the 0.3/1 is Nikita’s fault. Don’t bet on it, but I think it could pull a 0.4 or 0.5 during the week. Problem is that Nikita is not a CW show (it’s too adult for them).

  • JustToClarify

    Nikita, you’re really trying to test the limits of syndication renewal, aren’t you? I wish you wouldn’t. We’ve been given miracle renewals two years in a row and this time (even with the impending 88-episode thing) I’m starting to question whether the show can pull it off again.

    Bwa hahahahhaha

    Cult and Nikita. What a Grimm night for the CW.

  • Densino

    GO GRIMM!!!!

    I don’t worry about this show at all…..
    Season 3 is a lock,
    season 4….might aswell be a lock aswell :) :)

    Best show on network tv

  • Densino

    Nikita and Cult are pathetic

  • rob60990

    I think that 7.45 million viewers for Shark Tank was an error because it didn’t match Berman’s, while these total viewers are closer.

  • Hoyt

    Actually, 0.3 is awful, but way better than a 0.5 on a regular weekly timeslot.

  • cros

    The CW are better off putting repeats of Arrow, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries even Hart of Dixie for the Friday blocks.

  • s0303

    blue bloods has 10.72 million viewers and still loses its time slot…i find it strange that many senior citizens stay up til 11 pm to watch a tv show…most of them i know are in bed by 9…

  • s0303

    @hoyt…no, it’s not…a 0.3 is the equivalent of an 0.4 on another night (and 25% difference may be a little generous)…

  • Mark Wood


    No a .3 is not better then a .5, that’s a staggering 66.7% increase. No show moving from Friday to regular week gains 67%.

    That would mean Supernatural should have been hitting 1.35 all fall. Try a twenty percent to perhaps 30% increase.

    Meaning at most it equals a .4, at most.

  • Walt

    @Hoyt Ummm no. it just as bad.

  • MichaelChickless

    T Ouch!!

    Go LMS! Go CSI: NY!

  • Z


    Enough with the excuses Nikita fans, accept reality, if you get renewed then you get lucky again. Lol, stop acting like you are doing the network a favour when its actually the other way round
