Fringe Battles Nikita: Only One Can Make the 'Renew Our Show!' Finals

One features brainy characters whose doppelgängers live in an alternate universe. The other features sexy sleuths leading double lives. But both Fox’s Fringe and the CW’s Nikita have one important thing in common: They’re in the semifinals of TVLine.com’s first annual ‘Renew Our Show!’ Bracket Tournament, and only one will survive into Monday’s final showdown.

To make the final four, Fringe had to erase Outsourced and V, while Nikita assassinated The Event then pulled off a close upset over No. 3 seed One Tree Hill in the opening two rounds of our single-elimination competition for 16 on-the-bubble series hoping to score slots on the 2011-2012 primetime calendar.

Monday at 1 p.m. ET, you’ll be able to vote for the ultimate “Renew Our Show!” Champion — where the winner of this battle will be up against the winner of Chuck Vs. Parenthood. Click here to see the entire bracket (then click again on the image for a zoomed-in view). And if you’re losing sleep about the status of anything currently on your DVR “series-recording” lineup, don’t miss our regularly updated Renewal Scorecard feature.

But now, you’ve got a tough choice to make — either Fringe or Nikita. Polls will be open for 48 hours, and once you’re done, feel free to hit the comments to justify your vote, and head to Facebook and Twitter to whip your fellow fanboys and fangirls into a frenzy.

Oh! And to get alerted to all future “Renew Our Show” showdowns, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV. And now the time has come for you to vote like you mean it!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  7. sylvie says:

    well yeah, Fringe may win this one… but we all know both shows deserve to be renewed :)

    Nikita is an awesome show, there hasn’t been a spy show on tv with this many kickass characters and interesting plot twists in a long time.
    Fringe? well. what can’t I say about it. It’s great sci fi stuff.

    i still voted Nikita though. I just CANT have enough Maggie Q on my tv.

    I love Nikita, but not nearly as much as I love Fringe.

  18. Lola Howle says:

    There may be more than one of everything. Except Fringe. There is only 1 Fringe. Season 4 is on Fox’s vagenda.

  19. cecilia says:

    Fringe! SAVE FRINGE! HOW CAN IT EVEN BE IN DANGER? IT IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST SHOW EVER. FRINGE BABY FRINGE

  22. moses says:

    nikita!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and dollhouse (i agree with u victor lol)

  23. Claudia says:

    FRINGE is amazing but in the last season is so boring!!! The show needs romance, kisses and more action!!! … But NIKITA is all… ROMANCE, WEAPONS, ASSASINS, FIGHTS… and MAGGIE Q + SHANE WEST= DELICIOUS!!!!

    • Sasha says:

      Have we been watching the same show? This was the season that made romance a forefront!
      Fringe, hands down. I’ve been considering watching NIkita, but I’m a little ticked at Shane West calling Fringe a mediocre show. Unprofessional. Nikita will have to wait.

  24. Helene says:

    Nikita <3

  25. Chris says:

    SAVE FRINGE SAVE FRINGE WE NEED FRINGE to those mean people don’t say mean things about our aeesome show. You obviously never watched it
    GOD, IF YOU ARE LISTENING Please save Fringe *sobs uncontrolably*

  26. sela says:

    nikita. and why? if you need to ask that, then you seriously have to watch it. :)

    duh fringe is gonna survive whether it wins this poll or not.
    nikita, although we all know how awesome it is, seems to be hanging on the balance thanks to an unstable network with an unpopular reputation.

    just tryin’ to support this awesome show that should be given a REAL chance!
    GO NIKITA!

  27. Cynthia says:

    I watch both shows and I enjoy them both, but I’m voting for Fringe. Nikita is great, but Fringe is my favorite. I think the writing is superior and the actors, especially John Noble and Anna Torv, are amazing.

  28. sandrosfc says:

    Fringe awesome!!11
    nikita?? hahaha MEDIOCRE!

  29. Briana says:

    Nikita.

  30. Mah says:

    NikitaaAa

  31. Danny says:

    I haven’t seen Fringe, but it’s obviously going to win. It’s on a much larger network and has a lot more recognition and fans. But I’m voting for Nikita.

  32. Aaron B says:

    FRINGE.

  33. Ana says:

    I love nikita!!!!

  34. katie says:

    Don’t fall into Nikita’s Vagenda! FRINGE for the win!!!

  35. Anna says:

    I’m chosing Nikita because it doesn’t star either Anna Torv or John Noble.

  36. MiKita says:

    NIKITA FTW!!!

  37. Jocelyn J says:

    NIKITA, NIKITA, NIKITA!!!! Nikita ALL THE WAY!!! come on people lets get real here,NIKITA!

  38. katerina says:

    nikita nikita nikita!!!

  39. emma says:

    NIKITA. I’ve never seen fringe.

  40. serguio says:

    fringe rules

  41. Amy says:

    I wish Nikita well, but my vote goes to Fringe, all the way.

  42. Sara says:

    This is not even a question! FRINGE ALL THE WAY. Best tv show on tv. Should stay on forever.

  43. sandy says:

    wow, how immature are those people voting for fringe to have to badmouth Nikita?

    reading all these posts, ppl voting for nikita actually do respect and acknowledge that fringe is a good show, but they do vote for nikita cos they love it and they’re here to show support. there’s no need to get nasty if you’re just gonna show appreciation for your fave show.

    some people better represent their fandom with more class.

    love Nikita and its classy Fandom. Nikita FTW.

  44. Kat says:

    GO NIKITA!!! Fringe my ass!! low lives who are insulting Nikita just to get Fringe to win -.- like really ?? Shane West is right! Fringe is a mediocre show.

  45. oolalai says:

    NIKITA NIKITA NIKITA
    NIKITA NIKITA NIKITA
    NIKITA NIKITA NIKITA
    NIKITA NIKITA NIKITA
    NIKITA NIKITA NIKITA
    NIKITA NIKITA NIKITA
    PLEAAAAAAEEEESSSSSEE

    Does the renewal of the show depend on the results this poll?! It doesn’t, right?!?

  46. Hell says:
