Despite airing opposite the seventh game of the World Series on FOX, the series had a very positive debut. Year-to-year, NBC was up by 350% in the demo when compared to last year’s School Pride (0.6 in the demo). If most of these viewers keep returning week after week, NBC could easily have the highest-rated show of the night. It should also be noted that the debut of Grimm outperformed most other NBC shows which have the advantage of airing on better nights.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Please do NOT cancel this show! I love it. It is so different from anything on tv. I particularly like Grimm’s sidekick, the Blublad – for comic relief. I only watch it and Once Upon a Time. Can’t stand all the new comedies. (Oh, I also like NCIS, and all the CSI shows).

    Thank you!

  9. Katherine says

    I love this series. It’s by far my favorite since Lost, and I watch it religiously every week. It never ceases to amaze me, and puts me on the edge of my seat every episode. And right now I am still freaking out about the season finale. I will be counting down the days until season 2 starts, but for now, my Friday nights will be sad and lonely without Grimm.
