    It’s going to be glorious, once Nikita gets renewed. I predict TVBTN is going to break records with the comments section. We’re looking at above 600 comments lol.

  • Nikki

    lol at Nikita.. not suprised at all. watch it hit 0.1 before it ends. lol and .com nerdbot.. poor me what?

  • Illinois

    @ Michael

    It will be the same if it’s canceled.

  • rob60990

    I believe Fringe’s renewal had over 700. ;)

  • Nikki


  • Anyway

    I would love to know the 25-54 rating of Nikita!
    Seems that the show skews a little older than the rest of the channel, because 1M and 0.2.. and then SPN with 2M and 0.9, doubling in viewers and triplicating in the demo.

    “Why is Nikita certain to be renewed? There have been tons of third season shows that were canceled.
    This will soon be one of them”

    Some choose to wait before raging against the machine.

    And do fill us in on those “tons of third season shows” that were canceled. Recent history, and show’s with 3 full seasons only, please.

    Nothing adjusted up. Not even Shark Tank.

  • JR35

    Shark Tank again the top show of the night. :)

  • John A

    With only a week to renewels i suppose Nikita at 0.2 dont matter that much. But still a shameful rating.

  • Mr Mumble

    Bill, you’ve got Happy Endings certain to be cancelled!

  • samurai99

    Hey Bill, I know Blue Bloods is under syndication protection, but what are it’s chances next year with the numbers it’s been getting?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “Bill, you’ve got Happy Endings certain to be cancelled!”

    Not 3 full seasons.

  • harry

    Renew Nikita ,it will be rare to see a show getting a 0.0 demo ratio and 10.000 viewers. cant wait lol

  • maxwell

    no Nikita! :/
    I don’t get why people are not watching Nikita! And don’t say the show is dumb! It’s just getting better and better! I really don’t understand…
    There’s not ONE episode where i’m not like: WTF? Did That Happen? and where i’m not jumping out of my couch!
    But yeah, Hart Of Dixie or Beauty & The Beast are WAY better. Yeah right.
    Sad world, really…

    “Hey Bill, I know Blue Bloods is under syndication protection, but what are it’s chances next year with the numbers it’s been getting?”

    I don’t predict a season ahead, but I don’t see much difference in BB’s situation today and Good Wife’s situation a year ago.

  • maxwell

    And also:
    90210 – 0.3/0.55
    Nikita – 0.2/1.03
    What The Hell?

  • reallypeople

    Ok… to answer the 1,000,0000,000,0000 times this will be asked….

    Why is Nikita being renewed?? Because the CW doesn’t have anything else… and won’t program just 4 days a week. It’s just that simple. Oh, and the WB will make the fee crazy low (or at least they should) to get that magic, happy 88. Feel free to complain away at the CW’s poor planning and desire to take advantage of a studio’s willingness to give them a dirt cheap show.

    Maybe that should be the tagline for Nikita’s full season next year… Nikita Season 4… because the CW *beeped* up in advance planning. BTW, thanks Mark.

    The Carrie Diaries ratings:

    Episode 1 = 0.6 (1.61 million)
    Episode 2 = 0.5 (1.27 million)
    Episode 3 = 0.5 (1.38 million)
    Episode 4 = 0.7 (1.51 million)
    Episode 5 = 0.5 (1.20 million)
    Episode 6 = 0.4 (1.08 million)
    Episode 7 = 0.4 (1.00 million)
    Episode 8 = 0.4 (1.10 million)
    Episode 9 = 0.4 (1.03 million)
    Episode 10 = 0.4 (0.99 million)
    Episode 11 = 0.4 (0.83 million)
    Episode 12 = 0.3 (0.87 million)
    Episode 13 = 0.4 (1.00 million)

    Less viewers than Nikita but higher demo. I think it still has a chance to be Renewed instead of Nikita.

    This is a darned shame! Nikita is a great show. I wonder why people quit watching? Also, why are you people so spiteful? Wow…
