    Nikita! such a low rating for such a great episode :(

  • Michael

    Way to go, Shark Tank! Damn, I’m sure all Mark Burnett can see are $ signs.

    Shark Tank

    The Voice


    The Bible

    The Apprentice

    Wow, it’s shocking to think now Shark Tank is TYING Once Upon a Time in the demo. I know, I shouldn’t really compare the two but OUAT was once a powerhouse for ABC and Shark Tank used to be Friday filler…now they are both at the same level.

  • sciencenews

    Happy Endings at 8:00 had a 0.6 with 2.19 total viewers and 8:30 also had a 0.6 but with 1.73 total? How can that be correct, assuming that the same demo would watch both episodes?

  • Z

    I am very certain that Nikita is going to remain at .3 for whatever amount of episodes left, maybe one .4, but it will just get adjusted down.

  • Mon

    Blue Bloodzzz… Vegazzz….

    Great for Undercover Boss.

  • JacobYates

    Vegas didn’t adjust down! It’s a sure renewal now!

  • Charmed

    When Nikita started getting .4’s I had hope for a 5th season, but now I’ll be grateful even for a 4th!

  • Bob

    :( happy endings. I think that it’s a niche show.

    @sciencenews Total Viewers includes many people who are not part of the 18-49 demographic. Hypothetically every single Adults 18-49 viewer could have watched both episodes while every 50+ year old viewer watched the 8PM then tuned out for the 8:30PM, resulting in the same demos and a fairly large Total Viewers swing. I double checked. Those are the correct numbers.

    The only chance Nikita ever had for a fifth season was if WBTV wanted more episodes for syndication. Nikita has had a series of .3 before and gone up, so this .3 is meaningless, not to mention meaningless for renewal as well since that’s a lock.

    Nikita has 3 episodes left and it could go back up to .4 at any time since aside from one or two .5’s and one .2, it’s hovered at .3-.4 all season. The number of viewers this week is significantly down, however since it’s usually between 1.15 and 1.37 million. But that’s fluctuated all season, too.

  • Abigail

    just cancel Nikita!
    BatB would be better off in that timeslot.

  • Z

    BatB would of been hovering around .2 -.3

  • Guardian Owl

    Oh sit was also adjusted down apparently.

  • forg

    Great for Shark Tank!

    Nikita below a million!!! :D

    Go Shark Tank. How sad for ABC when it’s pretty much one of the highest rated hours of the week.

  • John A

    Poor Grimm. That 1.3 is awful. Hope it goes up next friday. How has Touch survived this long?

  • Ryan

  • Douglas from Brazil
