    Grimm didn’t do that great. More proof that Friday is where this show belongs. But hey it at least beat Revolution. :D

    Damn The Voice killed DWTS Results show and NCIS:LA.

    I just knew Splash would go below a 1 this week! Luckily this disaster ends next week. Fans should be glad BOP wasn’t on last night.

    “where will they move Revolution next season?”

    Thursday at 10 is free!

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

    Probably next Thursday or Friday. Last year they renewed a bunch of shows the Thursday before their upfronts.

  • GARebelman

    I think NBC will put Grimm back on Friday in the Fall. I think they are doing this now to help them in May Sweeps in the Demo

  • TheFrenchGuy

    @ rob60990

    Revolution WON’T move to Thursday at 10 next season ! It earned a 1.8 with The Voice as lead-in. How low will the Show fall if you put it on NBC worst slot with a 1.1-1.3 lead-in ?

  • forg

    Wow The Voice pushed DWTS and NCIS LA to series lows! I’m worried for The Middle tonight since it’s coming from a hiatus and it faces The Voice

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Grimm jumps from a 1.3 on Friday to a 1.9 on Tuesday – and idiots are saying that wasn’t good. Amazing… What are you going to say if the show goes UP next week? Clearly it picked up new viewers from the move. Whether they stay is unknown at this point, but its ratings IMPROVED.

    Comparisons to Revolution are irrelevant. There’s no basis whatever for comparing.Two entirely different shows on two entirely different nights. You could just as easily pick any other two NBC shows in the week and say, “Well, one did better than the other.” So frickin’ what? Unless they are in competition for renewal due to limited renewal slots it doesn’t matter.

    As for what Revolution will do next season, it will debut at or slightly higher than it ends this season – like most shows – and then will drift downward below 1.5 to cancellation.

    And good riddance.

    Death to Revolution!

    Wow, that’s better for Grimm than the last time they tried it. It went up nearly a third of its demo. NBC can’t be too upset about that experiment, especially since it means its audience followed it from Fridays.

  • Joe

    You seem angry that Grimm didn’t do that well. Revolution isn’t a hit at all. Grim is a small cult hit. With a huge lead in, it still couldn’t get a 2.0. And the second half hour it was down to an ugly 1.7 like Revolution. Only a tenth better than Revolution overall and yet this is somehow a big hit? lol. And this had no competition. Monday’s has a couple of shows that do well at least. Tues has nothing. Without the huge lead in, it would do the same as it always does. 1.5 area.

  • Joe

    Last time they moved Grimm to another night, it didn’t have the Voice lead in. Do you people just make up your own facts? Every show goes up with a huge lead in. Go on got a 1.9 its last new episode after the Voice. Is that a hit too lol? Go on and Grimm got the same rating.

  • Chris

    I could see an argument either way for what night to put Grimm on. On the one hand, on a Tuesday it got a significant ratings bump, which NBC no doubt likes. On the other hand, the ratings it gets in its Friday Death Slot are remarkably stable and actually comparable to (or better than!) what other NBC shows get during the week.

    So, which is better economically for NBC? A Grimm that *might* be able to get slightly higher ratings during the week, when ad time sells at a higher rate? Or a Grimm that so far has proven it delivers solid, decent NBC-level ratings on a Friday, when ad time is cheaper but where no other show seems to be able to deliver any kind of audience at all?

    (Grimm fans might want to root for the latter option, because all they should care about is a renewal. Grimm’s shown it can more than hold its own on Fridays; if it moved to a new night next season, it might not perform so consistently.)

  • Patrick

    still decent for Grimm

  • theCroup

    That’s great for Grimm and great for NBC. I’m not under any delusion that this means the big time for Grimm (I don’t even watch the show intentionally) but the reason it was put there was to help plug up major holes in NBC’s schedule. All it had to do was pull a higher number than what Ready For Love had been pulling and it did that easily.

    If its audience is so loyal, NBC will probably use it as a plug-in show for leaks (much as it’s doing now). There’s no reason to move Grimm to Tuesdays next fall if they have a new show they think may get better ratings. If the new show fails, they can move Grimm to prop the ratings then. No reason to start it there unless they think they can’t do any better (which for NBC is quite possible, but fall premiere scheduling is for optimists).

  • NBC Fan


    I wouldn’t worry too much about The Middle. The show hit a 2.7 back in November against The Voice.

  • cheri

    Go Grimm! :)

  • The End

    @Richard Steven Hack
    @and then will drift downward below 1.5 to cancellation.

    Respectfully, if it stays above 1.5 during its second season, it will drift towards a third season :)

    We’l have to wait and see anyway, we’l both be around this time next year I’m sure.

  • Ram510

    Well I can say I guess it right Grimm won it time slot. I’m sure it’ll stay around. 2.0 for the rest of the season

  • Cj morton

    Woah, I didn’t realize NCISLA skewed so old, I find that weird!

  • Rob R

    Quite a flight AWAY from “Grimm”…….Half the VOICE audience vanished. NBC must be very frustrated with both Grimm and Revolution retention falloff.

  • Carl

    I think those are more than respectable numbers for Grimm. I don’t know if any of these shows are suitable lead-outs for The Voice.

    The problem with DWTS is the format more than overuse. They need to get rid of some pros and get at least one or two new judges.

  • Jon

    What moron thought watching a bunch of has been and or never were celebrities dive into a pool as can’t miss television?
