    Shark Tank continues to rule.

    The ratings for Happy Endings make Last Man Standing and Malibu Country seem like smashes.

    Wow great for nikita, it didn’t adjust down! But wow Cult’s ratings are awful, that is not returning at all. The pilot was pretty bad anyway.

  • AA

    OMG CULT IS HYSTERICAL. I dont think any show in tv history went as low as a 0.1? This should be posted as news everywhere. lmao

  • Dahne

    @RSH – For someone who always rants at people for having the audacity to mention Nikita’s ratings, you sure are spinning them now. People are going to start rooting for Nikita’s demise just to end your ranting.

  • imadiva

    I don’t know if some of yall are not dilusional, but the key demo for the cult is the same for Nikita. It is 0.1 so all of you that says The Cult is a mess so is Nikita, it has the same demo the second hour as The Cult,so Nikita is just as pathetic because it has more viewers and still got 0.1.

  • Dave


    Well RSH’s ranting and those who are annoyed by him won’t be the reason the show is cancelled so I don’t see what the problem is.

  • Norma


    What are you babbling about Nikita got 0.4 for the whole hour its written above in the ratings chart. Only. Cult got 0.1


    Nikita is not getting cancelled

  • Ram510

    I hope Nikita can beat Touch soon, that would be nice!

  • Dave


    I know it’s not getting cancelled. I’m anxiously waiting for the official renewal announcement.

  • mrdoubleb

    At this point Cult’s audience could just be the number of people who fell asleep (or worse) in front of the Tv.

  • Gabriel Roa

    5 or 6 episodes goind well nikita will be renewed for a 4 season!! :)

    I’m a fan of Grimm. Been watching it from the start. It’s grown and improved as it’s gone on from a, I’d say, shaky start. I don’t think it would have happened on any other night than Friday … did NBC make a brilliant move or is it more of a case of a broke clock being right twice a day? No matters.

    I know shows need to stand on their own and lead-in and lead-out shouldn’t matter … but 0.7 -> 1.4 -> 0.8 … Grimm must feel like a Navy Seal in a firefight with 2 Quakers on it’s flanks! C’mon NBC, give Grimm a little better covering fire than Fashion Star & Rock Center (or Fashion Flop & Flop Center if you haven’t had your daily quota of floppisms). It’s great Grimm can still be the top scripted show on the wasteland known as Friday but it could do a bit better with a little support on either end.

    FLOPULT LMAO! The CW should really have given The secret circle more 13 episodes. TSC fans are getting their payback lmao.

  • Gabriel Roa

    Cult will be cancelled!!! 500.000 viewers sucks!!! that’s not normal!

  • Esh

    Cw was stupid to put cult up against Grimm. Grimm is the shi… If they left cult at the time slot they was on before I believe the ratings would be higher.

  • Alicia Waldrof

    We want a season 4 of NIKITA!!!!!! :)
