    NBC, move Fashion Star out of Friday nights and put a re-run of Law and Order: SVU for its lead-in. Better yet, put a re-run of The Voice. FS doesn’t need to lead-in to Grimm. I’d rather have it on Sunday nights.

    Basketball preemptions on CBS, if I recall correctly.

  • Hi


    I know it. You know it. Everybody knows.

    There’s no reason to stay saying FLOPITA FLOPITA BLABLABLA.
    It’s just pathetic. It is kill a dog yelling. this people have just to accept Nikita season 4 (and final – or not).

    I’m not pathetic. I’m just tired from you guys with the BLABLABLA FLOPITA BLABLABLA.

    Nikita still did better than 90210 and The Carrie Diaries.

  • Roswell


    I’m not but people won’t stop saying that .. Especially since its true.
    90210 season av is still higher than Nikita

    I believe the fates of LMS and MC are intertwined, and that both will be renewed by the skin of their teeth – unless ABC decides to go with “D-List Celebrity Wipeout” or such.

  • Gene


    I agree, I thought NBC did better with Dateline leading into Rock Center on Fridays.

    The cancellation bear loves futile save our show campaigns.

    How about Kickstarter? Put your money where your desperation is!

    A REALITY RERUN wins the night. Jeez. That’s not meant to happen in season.

    Massive basketball adjustments for CBS, the H5O rerun was adjusted down two ticks as well. It’s going to be ratings madness (pun intended) in the tournament itself.

    0.4 on Fridays would put Nikita viably on the CW bubble even if it wasn’t in season 3, that’s how badly the network is doing! Nikita has “88 and out” written all over it, and did so the moment it got renewed last May. The writers could honestly have prepared a story arc that led to a definitive series finale for episode 88, and for all I know they did!

    A lot of reruns were adjusted down too. The moral of the story: we 18-to-49-year-olds have much better things to do on a Friday night than watch TV.

    i knew blue bloods was way too high…


    BB adjusted down to 1.4 (I expected 1.5) but it still tied Grimm & LMS, the other scripted shows (with more favor in the golden demo I may add).

    ST is definitely the graveyard “Smash.” (Let’s do the Monster Mash)!

  • Hi


    Ok. But still, nikita will be renewed, gods of syndication or not. Die with your indignation. ;)

  • Roswell

    @hi not for a 5th season, you’re nuts!

  • Hi


    I NEVER sayied ANYTHING About season 5 lol

  • mat

    Nikita will not survive with ratings like this.

  • thensnowleopard

    Nice to see Grimm hold up, but ouch on that audience.

    Poor Cult. Guess those local sports preemptions did affect the CW ratings.

  • Z


    Cult back to its real numbers, no cult following watching lol

  • Z

    I think this Friday music thing will either do same as Nikita or a tenth higher. Maybe Cult might even rise.
