Jessica Jumps In: A Newbie's Guide To Grimm
3. Likelihood Of Staying On Air
Tucked away on Friday nights, NBCís Grimm is a procedural stooped in folklore with a niche fanbase. While Grimm is too oddball to even be a massive hit for NBC, the program performs steadily, averaging around 5 million total viewers each week. Thatís enough to keep the show competitive with other Friday night network fodder, like ABCís Shark Tank and CBSí Blue Bloods. While Grimm may not work on another night, itís a perfect fit for the Friday audience.
Currently, the show is well into its second season, and while NBC hasnít handed down the renewal order yet, Iím betting itís coming. Besides, if the show gets a third season, thereís no reason it wonít get a fourth, thanks to the awesomeness that is syndication rights, although with new ways to stream television, the magic 100 episodes may be changing in the next few years. Luckily, that shouldnít affect Grimmís chances.
