    Happy Nikita didn’t get adjust down!

    Really suprised with the 0.4 rating with only a million viewers..

    I still think the final season should get a total of 10-13 episodes. 6 is too short!

  • Hi


    weird ratings, 0.4 and just a million, when was with 1.06 and 0.2 or even 1.36 and 0.3!!

    I’m glad thad could hold the 0.4!!!


  • Danimals

    Was expecting Nikita to adjust down, but glad it didn’t

  • rob60990

    Booo on Nikita not adjusting down. Its ratings are pretty ridiculous. It doubled its 18-49 rating but is actually down in viewers from last week. What a mess. Enjoy your whopping 6 episodes next season. :D

    Was hoping both STs would adjust up but at least the 8pm one was.

    Is this site loading really really slow for anyone else?

  • Steve-A

    Why would you root for a show to adjust down? Is this a children’s site?

  • John A

    Werid that Nikita got 2 tenths more than last week with less viewers. Going back to 0.4 was too late for a full season renewel. Yay 48 Hours adj up.

    Something’s going on with the site today.

    Good to see Nikita to keep the .4 it has for the finaly.

  • Cass


    Not that it’s any of your business, but we will enjoy those 6 episodes next season. I also fully expect you to haunt those Friday ratings posts smirking about Nikita’s ‘ridiculous’ ratings even though they haven’t mattered since the show was renewed for season 3.

    @everyone else

    Nikita’s ratings point is probably closer to 0.3 than 0.5 but at the end of the day (and that’s not even counting rounding error), it seems like some older people tuned out and some younger people tuned back in relative to previous episodes.

  • DonnaT

    Glad to see Nikita did not adjust down (and the SPN finale encore beat the 90210 series finale).

  • TheFrenchGuy

    Happy to see a Supernatural repeat (on Friday) beating the Series Finale of 90210. I’m not a 90210 hater but it shows the good health of Supernatural :)

  • Danity

    Nikita coming for that 13 episode final season.

  • rob60990

    Nikita will only have 73 episodes total so that really won’t be enough for syndication, at least not a good deal but who would want it anyway? :D

  • Ernn

    @rob–why don’t you just go back down to your parents’ basement and troll down there.

  • Steve-A

    Syndication is old news. Online streaming is where the demand is growing

  • Figgie

    @rob60990 would you please just shut up for a Friday?! Your constant hate and badmouthing over Nikita is annoying everyone! Stop pretending you won, cause you didn’t. Nikita was renewed for a final season, regardless the ratings so all you have to do left is suck it up and find another punching bag. Oh and also to stop being so childish and obsessive…

  • Figgie

    *Friday and Monday

  • Domca

    How many episodes must the tv show have for syndication??

  • John A

    Rob has a point though. I bet that WB couldnt get Nikita into syndication hence why it didnt get 22 Episode 4th season. When originals rate as low as 0.2 some weeks who would want that?

  • JacobYates

    88 is the magic number that pretty much guarantees syndication, but shows have been syndicated with less.
