Lord of the Night: Obviously the shows are NOT crap, or no one would watch!

I am so happy CSI NY won the time slot and happy that Blue Bloods is going strong.


It's funny, this episode of Nikita was the best after the winter hiatus. Birkoff and Nikita are really amazing together. "bow down before shadow walker!!"
Please renew Nikita!!


Supernatural is still a highly likely renewal for an 8th and final season.
For Nikita I foresee a 13 episode order with a possible 9 episode back-order depending on it's ratings/demo.


Crap shows like CSI and Law and Order clones will always dominate the viewings. Its an inescapable, no matter how much we wish otherwise, fact. Supernatural may not have mega-high ratings, but it has one of the most dedicated fanbases and that is what really matters. Besides the CW isn't one of the higher rated networks. So its not a case of Supernatural having to compete with those other shows, it has to compete with the CW's other shows and its still one of their most popular programs. LotN


Feel sorry for the finder. TVLine says there might be hope for Nikita. Its really been awesome. Although Percy's plot seems very Old-Bond / Austin Powers.
