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.

What do you think? Do you like the Grimm TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Please, please, please keep Grimm, I love this show and actually look forward to it. I’m looking forward to see where Nick’s relationship goes Juliet, I hope he finally tells her the truth. And I’m anxious to see how Nick reacts to Capt. Renard’s secret. Will he finally grimm up? I love Monroe and his new love interest, this show can’t do any wrong in my eyes :)

I really hope that NBC renews “Grimm.” I look forward to it all week. The stories are fresh and interesting; the acting is great; and the special effects are awesome. Is there anything else I can do to show support for the show?

Grimm is a great show! It’s dark, yet light! Amusing and thrilling! If it can do this well on Friday night, NBC has a great show! Please renew it!!!!! :)

I’m enjoying Grimm, and hope to see it continue and get some questions answered, like, what kind of Vessen is the Captain, what is he really up to, and when is Nick going to stop playing it safe and be his bad Grimm self? What about the Reapers? More backstories would be interesting. I hope that Nick gets honest with Juliette and that she can accept his truth. Lots of potential with this show, and it will be interesting to see what develops.

I love “Grimm”, and won’t miss it each week. KEEP IT, RENEW IT for many more seasons.

Love…love…love Grimm. Favorite character: Monroe (of course). I love the new “love interest?” for Monroe. I am beginning to like Nick more; I agree he has to “Grimmup”. I know it can’t happen immediately and there needs to be an evolution…I’m sure his Aunt took time to become the badass she was but by now he should be sensing his power. Juliette is taking too much of his energy — she needs to go or become his partner…although…her ability at shooting a gun does lend one to believe she has secrets of her own…okay maybe we need to find out what they are before she goes.

In episode 13, the fire dancer told Nick that it was time to “Grimm Up!” and that’s precisely what the writers need to do to save this show from the sophomore curse. A lot of hints were dropped during this first season as to the future direction of the show and they should follow up sooner rather than later. To begin, Nick has to use his bad-ass reputation amongst the creature world to better advantage. Scare the wyaward ones straight. May them fear for their lives without actually threatening them. Next, Juliette has to go. Sure, it’s nice to see a functional relationship on TV but Nick can’t share his world with her (she’s not tough enough) nor can he keep her out of it completely. And that pain of separation may just juice up the character a bit. It also allows for a closer relationship with Monroe as sidekick and sub-plots with romantic entanglements. Nick’s character, as is, is just a little to “vanilla” for the Grimm universe.

This show is great, although it could use an ongoing plot as other shows do but nonetheless, I still enjoy every episode. I say it’s a keeper!!! :)

Keep it! It is one of the real highlights of this season. They’ve done some really clever twists on fairy tales and/or legends from the past. Monroe is the best character and actor on television right now!

I say keep the show, however I must say that so far the show has been very uneven in quality. I really like shows that have an ongoing evolving plot. Grimm just varily does this. I think that the show could do a lot more with the police chief who is one of the most intrigueing characters on the show.

Definatly keep Grimm. I love the show and I like the Friday night timeslot. The characters are great, especially Monroe- what a find! He brings the right mix of humor and pathos to the show. Interested to see what happens with Capt Renard by the series finale- also will Juliet stay? I hope so.

At first, I thought this show was a show just to be the NBC’s version of “Once upon a Time” but, Once Upon a Time does not follow crimes and suspects and cases. I love the ‘real’ criminal justice appeal behind it. They actually do great at investigating too! Sometimes, most shows play it too easy and get the suspect right away. This show, they actually DO the looking. Plus, Nick is hot!!

Keep Grimm. Although some of the story lines are weak or just don’t make sense, I really like this show. I especially like the werewolf side kick but the police chief is good too. The special effects and make up have been excellent.

First off, he finds out what ‘role’ the character plays into the Grimm Fairy tales. The police chief is like he knows the guy is a Grimm and in the beginning this lady was following him to make sure he had the abilities.
