Drama Series Ends Its Run — and Hardly Any Viewers Show Up

Dec 30, 2013  •  Post A Comment

A broadcast series that has been airing for four seasons ended its run late last week — and hardly anyone showed up, based on Nielsen Media Research figures.

"CW’s ‘Nikita’ carried out its last mission with few witnesses: The spy show’s finale had 805,000 viewers," TheWrap.com reports. "’Nikita’ scored a .2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, low even by CW standards. The network targets a more youthful demographic than its more established rivals."

The drama series aired its finale Friday night at 9 p.m., going up against mostly repeat programming on the big four broadcast networks. Winning the hour was a "Shark Tank" rerun on ABC, with a 1.2 average in the 18-49 demo.

“The low finale numbers for the Maggie Q drama help explain why it was canceled, after four seasons,” the report adds. “The rating was in line with the show’s average this season, though the show was up slightly in total viewers.”

  1. When did they expect when the final episode is scheduled during a holiday week.
    Nikita is a great show and was at least given a chance to finish its run. It may have had a small audience, but it had a loyal audience. Nikita ranks right up there with some of the best spy shows like Mission: Impossible and Alias. To everyone involved with Nikita thank you for a fun ride
