NBC Grimm for Season 2
Word has come in that freshman series Grimm has been granted a second season, a success it owes solely for airing on NBC. If Grimm was airing on any other network and were pulling in the same numbers week after week, it would likely have been canceled by now, and definitely not renewed. But thanks to NBC’s lack of approval among audiences, low standards and the Friday night timeslot it manages to do quite well in (Friday’s are notably where TV shows go to die, not a good place to start off a series), Grimm is allowed to live on.
Despite how things look, Grimm is actually a neat little show. It follows Det. Nick Burkhardt as he discovers he is a descendant of a group of hunters called “Grimms.” They are tasked with protecting the world from mythological creatures. The show draws many of its plots from old fairy tales, particularly those from The Brothers Grimm. It has its own little quirks to it, managing to be quite funny at times while bringing in the scary when it’s needed. Plus, at this point procedural crime shows need a little extra pizzazz to be even slightly interesting.
Grimm’s latest episode, “Plumed Serpent,” pulled in 5.2 million viewers, according to TVLine, with a 1.5 demo rating, which is actually an increase of 87 percent. Fringe, which also airs on Friday nights, would kill for numbers like that. It may be just luck Grimm is airing on a network where it can be considered a hit, but it doesn’t really matter. Grimm will be back and I’m perfectly happy with that.
