  • Revenger

    Nikita adjusted down :(

  • SVU: Hannibal

    Highest rated Rock Center ever (previous high was I think a presidential debate last Jan.)

  • Mark

    Not surprised for Nikita. I’m sure a lot of local affiliates did not carry it but instead carrying local News coverage.

  • rob60990

    ABC will be airing the 2 HE episodes that were supposed to air last Friday this Friday with the final 2 episodes airing on 5/3.

  • alexjones

    considering the total mess that the tv schedule was last night, nikita did well to get the ratings it did, I wouldn’t have been surprised if it dropped to 0.2.

  • Martin

    Someone said they saw Grimm and one of the happy endings that night, what does that mean for scheduling, wel canada air repeats this friday.

  • Mark Wood

    Yeah with losing New York st the very least that’s not bad for Nikita.

  • AniMatsuri

    Too bad. We got back to back episodes of Hawai’i 5-0. I would have loved to see if the reruns got more than Kitchen Nightmares reruns.

  • Michael

    That’s actually not bad for Nikita, considering it was only shown in the west coast.

  • SeSiiiin

    nikita will be cancelled?

  • JoshuaCanada

    @martin That was me that mentioned that. Looking at the guide on my TV, it looks like City looks to be going ahead with the final 2 episodes of Happy endings and it looks like CTV will repeat last Fridays Grimm. It could change but that’s what it looks like now

  • Anon

    @Micheal – I live in Maryland and it was shown there.

    But yeah, it’s not Nikita’s fault it got preempted in a bunch of places so that’s pretty decent.

  • iMember

    @Michael, I live in the East Coast and watched Nikita that night with no disruptions from local affiliates.

  • s0303

    @martin…i don’t know about canada, but this fridays grimm will be the episode that was suppose to air last week…then it starts on tuesdays after that…

  • Nerdbot


    It’s almost a fact the renewal for a final season. It’s still unknown whether it will be for 6-13 episodes or full season (which is more accurate, since it needs 21 more episodes for syndication.)

    Sad to see Nikki adjusted down, but I’m really surprised.

  • Dan S

    I’m assuming the Grimm that got bumped last Friday will air on Tues April 30th. If I recall Dateline is supposed to return this week in Grimms old timeslot. Too bad for Nikita adjusting down but that shouldn’t affect the CW’s renewal decision for it.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Not surprised at the .3 for Nikita, apparently quite a few preemptions. Still a lock for season four – and almost certainly a full 22-episode season. All the short season rumors are just that: rumors. Probably by the same clowns who just hate the show.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Friday’s episode by the way was fantastic – probably one of the top two or three best of all three seasons. Ryan still in a coma, Amanda’s back story, death of a major character, Division in ruins and Alex in the wind. Doesn’t get much better than that. Outstanding performances by Lyndsy Fonseca and Aaron Stanford in particular.

  • DW

    i believe Grimm was was a repeat on the west coast

  • Fred

    Rock Center finally proved it could take on 20/20. Lets see what happens next week.
