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!

  • Nikita fans now is our time please fight back hard for Nikita to win this battle because Fringe just got renewed for a full 4th season by Fox but, Nikita is still in the dark about getting renewed so, I encourage you now to fight. GO!!! Nikita.

  • Nikita !!!!!!!! I would never be able to live without it!

  • I love both shows, but we should clearly vote for Nikita since Fringe has already been renewed. In fact, I think Nikita should win by default and Fringe should be eliminated from the contest for that very reason.

  • NIKITA NIKITA!!!!! <33

    Seriously, I love Fringe. BUT Fringe has had a good enough run. I want to see more of Nikita! To kill it now before it has barely begun is ludicrous.

    Comment by Astrid – March 25, 2011 07:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Since FRINGE got renewed yesterday, does NIKITA win this by default since it’s still in danger of cancellation?

  • Both shows are awsome, but Fringeis by far better and more original. So my vote will go to Fringe.

  • Fringe is safe now. Sidenote: FOX, renew The Chicago Code!

    Anyways, I have no idea why the CW is putting off renewing Nikita. Get on that, CW, RENEW NIKITA!
