Ratings: Amazing Race, Grimm and Constantine Slip; Dateline Tops Night

Amazing Race Ratings

NBC’s Grimm this post-Thanksgiving Friday drew 5.1 million total viewers and a 1.2 demo rating, dipping 6 percent and a tenth week-to-week.

Constantine — on the heels of this bit of bad news — led out of that with 3.2 mil and a 0.9, down 9 percent and two tenths.

Dateline opened NBC’s night with 7 mil and a 1.3, topping all of Friday in both measures.

Over on CBS, The Amazing Race did 5.3 mil/1.0, down 12 percent and a tenth.

    What are the chances Constantine gets renewed for a second season? Need percentages.

    • Sam Shaw says:

      Maybe 20% It doesn’t have the buzz of Hannibal or the ratings of Grimm. It has about as much chance as Dracula had last year, and we all know how that turned out.

      • DL says:

        Probably slightly better than Dracula, considering they don’t have to pay a name like Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, and it’s produced and distributed by Warner Bros., with their vested stake in the DC franchise.

    • Chris says:

      I hope that Constantine’s ratings bounce back next week like they did with last week’s episode! #SaveConstantine

    • Moment says:

      NBC needs to lower its expectations for the timeslot. That or find a show that can survive there(Besides Hannibal) with a few million viewers and near enough a 1.

      • Chris says:

        The reasons why ratings dropped for Constantine last night was because it aired on Black Friday & it aired an out of order Halloween episode meant to be the show’s second episode!

  2. Moment says:

    Absolutely dreadful for The Amazing Race, no ways about it.

    • Dan the critic says:

      When The Amazing Race was on Sunday up against Once Upon a Time and The Simpsons, all 3 of them were in the top 20. Now The Amazing Race moves to Friday and nobody watches it. Should they move it back to Sunday?

      • Moment says:

        I don’t think it would be fair on Madam Secretary if it was moved back. But if Madam is renewed that’s TAR done on Sundays. It’s on Season 25 now, you would think it would have a following after being on for so long. If it ever came down to it, I wouldn’t mind if it became a summer series.

    I hope Constantine is renewed. I love it, the quality isuch improved from the pilot, and it is a faithful adaptation of the Hellblazer comic–which I loved as a teen

    Bad night to miss Grimm, he got his mojo back.

  5. Pat says:

    Why don’t they take into consideration, that it was a long Thanksgiving holiday and not to forget Black Friday shopping before they judge the ratings of these shows. I am sure that some people who traveled might have some of these shows on their DVR’s. I love Grimm and I now like Constantine, so I hope that it gets renewed.

    The sad state of Friday night television.. a news show topped the ratings… network programmers set up Fridays and Saturdays as if no one is home to watch TV, even more so during a holiday weekend. The cable line-up isn’t much better.
