These are the fast affiliate ratings. The “demo” refers to the viewers in the 18-49 demographic. The percentages represent the change since the previous original episode. (Percentages aren’t given for reruns or specials.) “Million” refers to the total number of viewers.

What were you watching last night? Original episodes, reruns, or something even better?
I think it is a mistake to let go of Nikita. I think the characters have a lot of potential. Friday nights are always difficult and at 8pm….I have always heard Friday night date night. And if you have people with children it is a hard spot to have a show such as Nikita.
With so much going on in this world right now, the writer’s should be able to have a gazillion ideas and bringing this show what it deserves to the viewers…
Maybe another network should look in to keeping Nakita and its wonderful cast alive.

Once again, let me state that 18-49 does not count in real life (where you sell pairs of eyes of every age) and percentage change should be given for overall viewership instead.
NBC of course has made a habit of pretending 18-49 counts and thanks to that far-sighted policy has gotten record low ratings last week (and likely to go down even further from lack of actual hits).
Which brings us to Grimm, which is apparently an shoe-in for renewal in spite of its dismal ratings.
Renewing flops is not the way to higher ratings, NBC…
