  • Not so shocked by Nikita dropping, however, it’s still the second highest episode of the season.

    • I really like Nitkita, but I’m thinking it might be the last season

      • Nah-uh. A 22 episode 4th season for syndication and probably a 5th with 11 episodes to make sure it definitely gets that 100 episodes for syndication.

        • 100 episodes aren’t necessary for syndication. A lot of shows now get deals with 80 or so episodes. I don’t picture the CW keeping this stinker around for a fourth and then also a fifth season when it’s been performing so poorly in the second and third seasons. A fourth season, yeah, even with the current pathetic numbers. A fifth season? NO WAY.

  • not a bad rating for NIKITA on a friday against full competition when all CW’s monday and tuesday shows do lower in viewers and about the same in the demo.

  • Nikita is the one show on Friday nights that I’m worried about. Jury’s still out.

    • CSI NY is in far more jeopardy than Nikita.

    • Nikita does very well internationally, so its renewal decision will be based on more than just the US ratings.

      • Link to proof. Random people keep saying this, but no one ever offers any solid evidence.

    • its holding steady enough and doing equal or better than half of the cw’s shows on other nights, not to mention the less than full line up of pilots they have commissioned; i would be very surprised if it didnt at least get a half season order.

  • Nikita will get fourth season – otherwise, impossible for syndication. Plus, CW has problems with TCD, 90120, B&B, Emily has been cancelled. (The Cult will likely be cancelled.) I doubt CW will give up Fridays too and only run M-Th.
