Grimm Earns A Ratings Boost After Moving To Tuesday
NBC wasn't exactly taking a huge risk when they moved Grimm from its Friday night time slot to Tuesday night. Shows tend to do better when they aren't tucked away on Friday nights. Still, fans of the supernatural drama were likely hopeful that the shift from Fridays to Tuesdays would yield a noticeable ratings bump, especially when factoring in the Voice lean-in. Sure enough, the move has given Grimm a much deserved boost in numbers.
EW posted last night's ratings, which incidate that Grimm posted nearly 6 million viewers for last night's "Endangered" episode. That's more than a million more viewers than Friday night's "Volcanalis" earned. The series was moved to Tuesday nights when NBC cancelled Ready for Love. The unscripted dating series took over for Smash, which was disastrously moved to Saturday nights. Ready for Love failed to secure itself a decent-sized audience, even with the benefit of The Voice airing before it. Grimm was already holding its own with between four and five million viewers per episode on Friday nights in its second season, so the Voice lead-in could really only help the show.
Though Grimm fell behind CBS' Golden Boy in total viewers - the CBS cop drama was watched by 7.75 million viewers - the NBC series came out ahead among adults 18-49 with a 2.0 rating, winning the time slot in the demo.
The Voice brought in 11.6 million viewers, falling behind NCIS: Los Angeles, which earned 12.9 million and NCIS, which earned a whopping 17.7 million, which is up a bit from last week and the week before, but down from some of the highs the CBS drama was earning earlier this season. Dancing with the Stars earned 10.6 million viewers.
