  • Eliot

    Nikita. Is there any way it could get a fifth season? It will without doubt perform better than BATB, TCD, HOD and maybe Reign.

  • Brandy

    @Eliot, no.Maggie and Craig only wanted four seasons and Craig working on a new show Turn and Noah is on another show.Its been announced this is the FiNAL season..Second, Nikita did last season on fri what CD,BatB ,HoD now but it got 3 0.2,went under a million viewers five times and had as many 0.3 as 0.4s so no it won’t outperform CD,BaTB,HoD.Reign got a 0.6 for its latest episode, a rating Nikita hasn’t had since beging of season two.Nikita tends to loose 50% of its audience between seasons also,so it might return lower especially since when it’s season airs, people will be busy with holiday preparations and already have picked out thier fri schedule for tv

  • pete5125

    Nikita is a good show, but its performance will hover between .2 and .3 if the show wouldn’t of had some international appeal and been liked by current network president you would of never got seasons 2,3 and now a shortened 4.

    Just does not perform and the performance is so low it isn’t worth trying on a new night

  • Movie12

    All I care is about NIKITA premiere. One of the best action spy TV shows.

  • Davie

    No Supernatural on Nov 5, odd.

  • E

    I’m surprised Arrow doesn’t include any episodes with the Flash during November sweeps.

  • Dave

    NIKITA!!!!!!!! :D

    Going out with a bang baby!!! Thank you CW for this final season.

  • Samuel

    I have to say, it was unusually nice of The CW to rap up Nikita like they’re doing. The network is not known for closure when it comes to a lot of their shows.

    It’s mainly the veteran shows that get the closure. I guess it helps that Mark P personally likes the show. I’m pleased for the shows small, but very vocal fan base. The series will likely become a cult hit in the future.

  • david

    Looking forward to Beauty and the Beast, the Originals, Supernatural, Arrow , the Tomorrow People, TVD and Nikita.

  • starship

    @Samuel
    I’ll have to disagree, compared to the other networks, the CW is the one that always aims for closure of their shows. Obviously first-season cancellations are left slightly open-ended but even that isn’t as bad as networks which shut production down midway through the initial order, so there’s no chance to tell anything even remotely resembling a complete story.

  • reedmac

    There is SPN on Nov.5 it just isnt listed in the release. The episode is called ‘Dog Dean Afternoon’

  • Kay

    Sounds like a lot of good episodes. Reign sounds like it will start getting interesting rather quickly.

  • Zach

    Is Hart of Dixie taking two weeks off? Could Beauty go as low as a .2 with a repeat lead in?

  • thesnowleopard

    @Eliot
    With a six-episode final season? No, it’s not going to get a season five. It had abysmal ratings the past two seasons and with it being burned off over the holidays, don’t expect it to outperform much of anything else on the network now.

  • THE OLD MAN

    NIKITA

    Should old acquaintance be forgot…

    (ie) We’ll MISS YOU MUCH

  • ubair

    i havent seen no better shows..ever…i love nikki.. mikey.. alex.. ryan.. amanda’s a bitch.. woahhh…a big big fan of the show..
