    Do people really think NBC’s going to move GRIMM from Fridays next season? Just because it’s getting a few Tuesday night airings doesn’t mean that a move was ever in the cards. Sure, if it did gangbuster numbers last night then maybe, but let’s be serious.

  • John A

    Im not a fan of Grimm. But nice to see it beat loser Revolution is all.

  • David

    FYI, expect renewal announcements from ABC either this week or next.

  • Fred


    True. But anything looks good next to Ready For Love.
    Revolution was quite weak last night as well.

    No so easy to find worthy companions to hit shows.
    Look at American Idol and Modern Family too.

    @John A

    Thanks for the clarification.


    I would say that’s a fair prediction too. I had one show down down as cancelled prior to airing due to the critics responses on ABC and that was The Neighbors, I’m eagerly awaiting my death prediction for this show, as If I’m right I’ll do another for next season.

    “Revolution will never be on a Saturday or a Friday.”

    Well, if this decision will depends just on its ratings performances, I would not call it a fact yet. Smash had pretty much the same numbers last year on Revolution’s time slot, and now we can see where it’s standing.

  • The End


    I was speaking about where Revolution will première for Season 2, as I believed that is what they were talking about. Please read my comment again instead of selecting specific portions of it.

    With regards to the point you highlighted, I pointed out that the show won’t premiere on Friday or Saturday. But admitted if the show collapsed it may be moved days.

    Why are people going yay for ‘NCIS’ ratings, a 3.1 Demo number is terrible and it originally got 17 million viewers than adjusted up to 18 after the ooo ah oh my god, cliff hanger it had for last week’s episode and Tony and Ziva walked away from the accident with minor injuries. Oh and then there’s the vigilante agenda with Team Gibbs and Vance revolving the deaths of Eli and Jackie, when gee didn’t Jethero chastise poor Jenny in her study for using her job for a vendetta against ‘The Frog’ and how she failed to uphold the law because it involved the possiblity that ‘Froggie’ may have had a role in her own father’s death|suicide. But it’s ok for the Mossad Barbie to do the same exact thing and oh my poor Ziva, let daddy help you. No Jen’s an evil witch who with holds the law. Hypocrite Gibbs is all I have to say.

  • Gio

    They were talking about next season in general, in my opinion, because Smash, as we all know, didn’t premiere on Saturday and bla bla bla. That’s the reason why I highlighted your comment.

    @Why are people going yay for ‘NCIS’ ratings, a 3.1 Demo number is terrible.

    No it’s not. A 3.1 18-49 rating is excellent and would ensure a half dozen seasons for a TV show with a modest budget.

  • Sarah

    Yay! Very happy for NCIS. Love Ziva.

  • The Old Woman

    The reason folks seem to be pleasantly surprised that Grimm did better than Revolution is because Grimm is a Friday show. That’s where shows go to die. It premiered on a Friday and for the most part has stayed on Friday. Plus it’s a genre show that’s in it’s second season so it’s not going to build an audience at this stage. Compared to Revolution which premiered on Monday after the Voice giving a bigger audience a chance to catch the pilot.

    It’s like folks being pleasantly surprised by ABC’s Shark Tank. Another show that does well irrespective of where it’s put.

    I still think NBC should have given the Tuesday 10.00 P.M slot to Hannibal. That show needs it more than Grimm.

    wonder why ncis:la fell so much, it was doing about the same as ncis recently and all of a sudden it’s almost a whole demo point lower…

    grimm did okay, not great…it usually gets about 1.5 on friday (i’m ignoring the 1.3 rating for the last episode on friday that aired a week late) nbc might as well put it back on friday next season since it isn’t much lower there and keep parenthood on tues at 10…

  • The End


    Sorry about that, have appeared to of read their post wrong, and just assumed they were speaking about what day it would premiere on.


    kate ncis is the most watched show on tv.

  • ann

    I predicted a 1.8 for Grimm so I’m pleased to see it did even better even being adjusted down a bit.

  • TheFrenchGuy

    @ kate

    3.1 is not terrible it is pretty good. Even the season low 2.7 was good considering other CBS dramas’ numbers.

  • MichaelChickless


    You seem to know an awful lot about an NCIS show you apparently don’t like very much.

  • Mon

    NCIS: LA collapsed just like that. Now I admire CBS Monday comedies a bit more just for facing hurricane The Voice since fall.

  • Jelly86

    Grimm will be sent back to Friday but NBC should air it 8:00 pm in the fall followed by a new drama and Dateline NBC. The ratings for Grimm were not great considering it followed the very boring Voice.

    I think a lot of people are tired of the singing and dancing shows, i.e. Idol, X-Factor, Dancing and probably by next season The Voice. These TV shows have to be the worst. If I were NBC I wouldn’t be airing The Voice more than twice a week. They now will be airing a Wednesday show and encores on Sunday (which don’t repeat well). They are going to kill this show fast.

    CBS should stick with NCIS and NCIS-LA on Tuesday but I would not order NCIS: Red, it’s overkill, and will kill the franchise. I would put a new drama in the 10:00 pm slot for next year.

    ABC should definitely rest DWTS to one semester only – preferably the Spring. They can air The Bachelor in the Fall.
