I agree with all the comments. Nikita deserves a fourth season and a better time slot or move to a different day. I love this show. It have lots of action and a great cast. Maggie Q is perfect in this role. Please renew.

I love this show. It so addictive… and I really don’t understand how is it they have such low rating. I mean action, drama, comic relief, hot guys, hot girls, complex relationships, evil masterminds and smart replays.
Cw did a really bad job with the time slot and marketing of the show. I really hope they will do two thing: one pick up the show for four season and two start from the beginning in a better time slot with lot’s more marketing so the show will get the credit she deserve!!!

I think that Nikita is most definitely the BEST show on television today! In my opinion, the fact that is comes on Friday evening is a downfall because most people are not sitting at home…
I hope the the CW will give Nikita a 4th season! The cast deserves it, they’re all awesome!

NIKITA is the best show on TV the ONLY reason why the ratings are “LOW” is because the show comes on Friday at 8:00 and most of the demographic 18-35 are out on the town…hats off to all of us who stay in at least until nikita is over SEASON 4

I agree probably Monday will be a good time to show Nikita,because Friday people are out of town or they go out on Friday night, wondering why the rating is not that good the show is difinitely an interesting one I love it..even Friday set my DVR to watch it.

Nikita is a lock for a fourth season. Most TV shows – even those with bad ratings – which make it to a third season are almost automatically renewed (with a few exceptions) for a fourth season for syndication reasons.

And Nikita has excellent syndication potential for the WB studio due to Maggie Q being a big star in Asia.

So Nikita will get a fourth season, but probably not a fifth as there will be no reason – except to get to 100 episodes for additional syndication revenue, like they did with Fringe – to give it a fifth once it has made the minimum 88 episodes required for “stripped” syndication..

RENEW THIS SHOW! I love this show. There are never enough super spy shows on TV. Okay, maybe there are, but I like this one. The others try to be real and fail. Their phoniness is palpable. Nikita tries to be more than real and comes across as if there really is a Division. La Femme Nikita did the same thing and succeeded. I hated to see it cancelled. KEEP NIKITA!!

I’m addicted to this show. It just takes my breath away because you never know what’s going to happen. I hope they don’t cancell it because i would be very sad
And i think every nikita fan would be

nikita should definitely get renewed. I am surprised that the ratings are not very good for it, the characters are all pretty awesome and most of them are attractive (dont pre-teens like hot stars?) The story is not completely predictable like so many where every cast member has hooked up and around the circle they go. PLEASE CW keep a different show on with some mystery and interest!!

Nikita is a great show that deserves to be renewed for season 4 and beyond. It’s always riveting and cast are well flushed out, of course with sonme hidden agenda, secrets… that;s what keeps it real and intresting.
