    Nikita is back. That’s all I need to hear.

  2. Jarrod says:

    My Friday nights are complete once again. Bring on Nikita!

  3. I will be on twitter watching the sketch the cast of Community have prepared to promote the show and then I will follow the #Darkest401 hashtag and pretend I’m watching the premiere episode “History 101”. Go Human Beings !

  4. Renee says:

    Why do the only shows I watch on Friday have to be on at the same time? Nikita & Grimm.

  5. Jenna says:

    Going to try Hunted.

  6. Mel says:

    Fringe and Haven….As always. Maybe Hunted, but i can’t stand Melissa George, not since she broke up Sydney and Vaughn :'(

  7. No Fringe this week. Sadness.
    As least I still have CSINY. May check out Hunted as well.

  8. Mh says:

  9. Shannon says:

    Nikita! Cannot wait.

  11. qwer987 says:

    Nobody ever talks about Boss and I expect it will be canceled, but that last episode was awesome.

    • Eve says:

      I love this show. Hate the fact that it doesn’t get the respect it deserves. The level of acting on is unsurpassed. Kelsey is amazing. He may not be my favorite human being but he’s definetly one of the best in the biz.

  12. Shannon says:

    None of the above (unless you count the link to the teaser). It is a Grimm night!

  13. GK says:

    No Fringe!!!! Dammit!
    Will watch Hunted.

  14. New Nikita, and I’ll finally get around to watching last week’s Fringe

  15. Britt says:


  16. Nikita On Cw says:

    NIKITA!!!!!!!! IS BACK!!!!!!!! Hell YES

  17. Cyndee says:

    Boss is the most compelling television show, it draws you in to see how corrupt politians are and will go to any length to stay on top. The acting is superb; Kelsey Grammer leads the pack but all of the actors are joyous to watch. This show should have been on HBO to receive the audience it deserves. I am hoping for Season 3.

  18. Balaji K says:

    Blue Bloods

  19. tbeck5 says:

    Hello? What about Grimm? You must no t like that show. I personally LOVE IT!!!

  20. Mikael says:

    I’m actually glad Fringe isn’t on this week, so I don’t have to decide between it, Nikita, and Grimm. Next week will be a problem though. I’ll probably have to skip Grimm.

  21. GS says:

    Blue Bloods is great this season! I love the Reagans and I hope they give Erin a love life finally. Tom Selleck is still gorgeous after all these years. Love my Friday night must see!

  22. stan lear says:

    what would a Friday be without “Real Time With Bill Maher?”

  23. G says:

    Nikita, CSI: NY, and Hunted.

  24. Nicole says:

    I mite turn in to see the new Lucy on csi ny. I watch that actress on general hospital. I feel that she is a scene stealer when she is on. Maybe she have more lines. Lucy was born the end of season 5 and should only really be 2 . However on GH she is like 5. So probably going to age Lucy to about 5.

  25. King says:

    CSI: NY and Hunted. I’m gonna miss Strike Back. I’m glad it’s coming back next year.

  26. Alan says:

    finally nikita has come back to friday nights. (read that in the rocks voice if you want)
    ive really missed my dose of kick ass women beating the tar out of people.
    i was looking forward to the return of community as well but i guess nbc dont want to air the best comedy on tv

  27. wendy kalthoff says:
