NBC Renews GRIMM for Season 2

     March 16, 2012


Grimm has blossomed into a solid performer for NBC in the 14 episodes since its September premiere.¬† In recent weeks, the fairy tale drama hovered around 5 million viewers and 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo.¬† In a vacuum, that’s not very good.¬† But given the Friday night slot on a struggling network and an 87% increase in ratings after DVR, Grimm was a guaranteed renewal.¬† TV Line reports that indeed NBC committed to a renewal for a second season.¬† The network had little luck with the season’s new dramas.¬† The Playboy Club, The Firm, and Prime Suspect are done for.¬† Awake, too, probably won’t outlive 2012, and Smash is not the out-of-the-box hit NBC was hoping for.¬† Grimm is a true bright spot on a night where most broadcast television finds only darkness.
