Dracula-5-550x366

NBC's Friday night is getting a whole lot spookier tonight with the third season premiere of Grimm and the series premiere of Dracula. Last year, Grimm's second season premiered to a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, and the season finale fell to a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. Will this fairytale procedural stay stable for season 3? And can Dracula, which has had mixed reviews, make an impression tonight? Make your predictions below, and tell us your thought on this pair of premieres in the comments!

    I’m thinking 1.6 for each, and they’ll remain pretty stable for the season. It’ll help that Dracula is only 13 episodes, so its ratings-fall won’t be as hard.

  • BenA

    Grimm: 1.7 (facing the World Series, new episodes of Hawaii-Five O and Shark Tank)
    Dracula: 1.6

    Though, I hope higher for both as Grimm’s series premiere from 2 years ago surprised everyone in the ratings as it faced the World Series and had a bad lead-in with Chuck’s final season

    I think it should be noted on the text that those Grimm numbers, both from its finale and from its premiere, are from weekdays (Tuesday and Monday respectively). People will think it is stronger than it actually is when guessing judging by those.

  • Dan S

    I think Grimm will premiere strong & voted 2.0-2.1. I think for Dracula I voted 1.6-1.8 but the weeks ahead will tell if its a keeper.

  • C.S.Strowbridge

    No poll for The Carrie Diaries? Or is there no point, as the ratings will be too small.

  • HeadlessHorseman (formerly JacobYates)

    Grimm 1.9
    Dracula 1.5
    Carrie Diaries .1

  • andri

    Expecting no less than a 2.0 for Grimm. Dracula somewhere between 1.6 & 1.8 for Grimm’s lead in respecter .

  • EatMorePez

    I’ll guess 1.8 for Grimm and 1.7 for Dracula.

    Dracula currently at 61/100 on Metacritic with 12 positive reviews, 7 mixed and 3 negative.

  • DenverDean

    @Jeff (Canada) I believe Dracula is only 10 episodes, not 13.

  • PurpleDrazi

    Grimm has never been a ratings blockbuster but it did have a pretty big cliffhanger last season and it is getting close to Halloween so that may help. I think 1.7 to 1.9 range.

    Dracula will probably have around the same number as Grimm.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Dracula looks HORRIBLE and WILL BE CANCELED there is only one room for such a blunder of a show for a network and NBC picked Hannibal. No amount of distribution costs can save it! This show has cancelation written all over it. Vampires are so 2008 haha plus network TV is too saturated with Vampire shows that premiered at the height of the TWILIGHT craze. Twilight has ended and the fad is dying down now, too

    Grimm 1.7
    Dracula 1.5 (crashing in following weeks)

  • KarenM

    If Dracula’s so great why did NBC resort to putting it on Friday nights? It’ll die!

  • Christian

    Grimm- 1.7
    Dracula- 1.6
    Carrie- 0.3 :(

  • Kim

    Dracula is only a limited series…meaning it’s contracted to only be 10 episodes. I really don’t think the ratings will matter.

  • Alecia

    Grim 1.8
    Dracula 1.5

  • HeadlessHorseman (formerly JacobYates)

    @Kim
    That just means it will only get 10 episodes per season.

  • k:Alex

    Dracula is really cheap for NBC, it’s co-produced with England.
    This could be a good show, I will watch the first episode, but I’m afraid it’s too much of a Twilight story.

  • HalCapone

    Grimm has been good to NBC Fridays. I was one of the naysayers who never thought it would live to see a season 2, let alone 3. Not much to compete with the Grimm demo unless Shark Tank or Hawaii Five O both poach a few stragglers. Not having a World Series game tonight should help the season premier of Grimm. Dracula should perform in mid 1′s for the debut and settle in the 1.2-1.3 range for the rest of its limited run.

  • Noel

    I think some of you are understimating the power of Dracula. It has received heavy promotion so I wouldn’t be surprised for a high ratings pilot. I expect at least a 2.0.

  • John

    Since Grimm won’t have to go against the World Series, I’m betting it will open strong. With Halloween approaching, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Grimm and Dracula both open up with a 2.0 or higher.

    Even if Dracula is awful, I think it will take a couple of weeks for it to plunge with Grimm holding onto viewers interested in urban fantasy.
