  • No wonder NBC is the lowest rated Network. A lot of us do not like to watch stupid shows like vampire and bloody shows and stupid comedy, which most of them are. The FIRM was one of the best shows NBC ever had.

  • If Grimm is getting such good ratings then why are they moving them to Fridays? I love the show and have read great reviews etc… so why is it on the worst night?
