    Its not saying much considering the higher rated shows were unscripted Undercover Boss and Shark Tank, but this wont affect Grimm’s renewal chances.

    The series is still a lock for renewal as is Hawaii 5-0 and Blue Bloods.

    LMAO, funny how when it comes to H50 and CBS saying it one the night with viewers in their time slot everyone says it’s CBS putting their spin on it but then NBC comes out with this drivel and that’s ok!! Not cool people.

    @ heather – you are exactly right! NBC and ABC have been screaming this season about Total Viewers in numerous releases (not to mention every time their show get crushed in demo they mention “special programming” “sports-fueled line-up,” etc.)

    You really have to love these press releases.

    What NBC failed to mention in its glowing account of Grimms performance on Friday night was

    1) It’s 1.2 rating was 25% below its previous week and

    2) The special 10:00 episode tied the series low.

    So H50 and BB on average from 9:00-11:00 beat Grimm in 18-49 and killed it in total viewers? Good to know!
