    0.1 for Cult? Oof.

  • Dillan

    Is that the first time any show has got a 0.1?

    I honestly think The CW should not air the rest of the episodes. They shouldn’t even produce them. LOL. Production should be shut down. Repeats would literally be getting better ratings than this.

  • T

    LOL Cult

  • peter

    Now Nikita seems like a hit compared to Cult…
    Also the star of cult was in the Vmpire diaries , they released him from his contract so he can do greater things ….Like Cult? L O L

  • karin

    Touch ?? really Fox?

  • John A

    Well Cult makes Nikita look like a hit. Good for Grimm.

  • s0303

    yay grimm!!!

    pathetic for cult…they should just pull it and air reruns…they cancelled emily owens for this??? grrrrr….

  • Dave

    Nikita! :D

    Ouch at Cult. At this point, BATB could repeat better.

  • Nile

    Sorry Nikita adjusted down a little.

  • jake

    Cult can be the first show ever on network tv to get a zero demo.
    The show’s going to be on record Guiness.

  • Reward

    OMG lol

    Poor CW.

  • Reward

    OMG lol

    Poor CW.
    That’s a cult, anyway xD

    Yikes at Cult. This has to be an all time low for a CW scripted original.

    Great for Shark Tank. It has a solid fanbase. Wasn’t hurt by the terrible lead-in.

  • Jayzel

    Video killed the radio star… and digital files/the internet killed video/TV…

  • oliver

    yay..nikita held steady. but cult’s ratings is abysmal. i guess the cw is just waiting for a .0 to pull the plug on this one. if it aint pulled from the schedule within the week, i guess, it just proves once again how brainless cw’s management is.

  • OWL

    A repeat does way better. The show must be awful.

  • Carrie

    damn, even The LA Complex never went that low.

  • Bobby

    Yay Grimm! And nooooo Happy Endings!

  • JacobYates

    I want to see Cult hit a 0.0 before this season’s end.
