Nikita to Reclaim Its Friday Lead-Off Time Slot
Nikita is spying a familiar time slot.
TVLine has confirmed that beginning Friday, Nov. 30, the CW thriller — which now airs at 9/8c — will move back to the 8 pm lead-off spot it used to hold. The hour’s current occupant, America’s Next Top Model, concludes its run on Nov. 16.
Repeats of the network’s freshman smash Arrow are slated to follow Nikita at 9 pm until Jan. 18. Previously announced holiday specials, meanwhile, will fill both hours on Dec. 14 and 21. (The Futon Critic first reported the schedule swap.)
Nikita opened Season 3 in the Fridays-at-9 spot with barely a million viewers, and suffered a decline the following week. It ticked up with its most recent outing but still struggles to draw a million viewers or score above a 0.3 demo rating.
Are you happy Nikita will once again be kicking off your Friday night lineup?
