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.

    My family never missed a show. We are eagerly awaiting the next season!!! Wow! Loved the season finale. We will watch any new episodes and be thrilled by every one. We watch on Hulu.com though so I hope they are counting the number of views on that as well!!!!

    I discovered the show Grimm while looking for something to watch “On Demand”on a boring Saturday afternoon. To this day I don’t know why I choose “Grimm” but I’m so happy that I did. I was hooked from the start, this show is great!

  5. Rita McKillip says

    My family WON’T miss an episode. We have our favorites and Grimm has joined that rank. It is fun, interesting and slightly scary all at the same time. Good characters.

  6. Ted says

    This is the best show currently on TV. I even like it better than NCIS, and I like NCIS a lot.

    Absolutely, I want it renewed for as long as the actors want to do it.

  7. nila says

    We love watching GRIMM. Hope you will continue airing this TV series. I wait for Fridays to watch the show. Well done! Good selection of actors. More power to you all.

  8. margaret says

    Love, love, love “Grimm”. Have not stayed so glued to a series in quite some time. I look forward to every Friday night with this show and everything comes to a stop in my house when it is on. I also noticed that SyFy was showing reruns. Glad to hear that NBC ordered a second season. Should it not continue on to a third season, it should be quickly switched over to SyFy.

    My husband and I love Grimm the story line keeps you interested. When watching on Friday that’s the fastest an hour ever pass. Time fly when your having a good time. 4 thumbs up for Grimm.

  10. Zenovia Jackson says

    I love this show and would be very, very disappointed if it was canceled. The rest of my family loves it too.

    Best show on tv in years and years. Watch it every week and then watch it again when it’s on cable’s ON Demand.
