For the first time, Nikita fans don’t have to worry about their show being cancelled. Will the ratings for the final season be strong enough for the execs to regret the decision to end the show? Will they be so low that they regret renewing it at all? We shall see.
Last season on Nikita, our heroine (Maggie Q) was framed for assasinating the President and had to go on the run. There are sure to be lots of twists and turns to come. The rest of the season’s cast includes Shane West, Lyndsy Fonseca, Melinda Clarke, Aaron Stanford, Noah Bean, and Devon Sawa.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. That’s obviously not an issue in this case. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
12/28 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

For comparisons: The third season of Nikita averaged a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.13 million total viewers.
Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you still like Nikita TV series? Do you wish that there was going to be a fifth season?
