Tweaking Nikita For More Viewers

cw show nikita getting tweaked to encourage more viewers

Not enough of you are hanging around after the Salvatore brothers steam up the CW on Vampire Diaries to watch the network's new series, Nikita.

Execs are noticing, so in order to draw more of you in, they have plans to "tweak" the series.

The show's pretty decent on its own, but the demographic isn't really feeling the show's somber dark tone and the lack of love in Nikita's life. So right there will be some changes.

The latter will be dealt with by introducing a new character into the mix who will function soley as a love interest for Nikita. He's being described as a "clean-cut, all-American CIA case officer. "

Hear that Maggie Q? You getting some ACTION! Enjoy!

So, if they give the rogue agent some sexy time, U think U might start tuning in?

    Good show, but it could be better.

    Guilty…I change as soon as Vampire Dairies is over. I am still wondering why this is on…not even a new person will get me to watch this crap.

    perez, when you go to cw tell them not to change nikita's format. it gains viewers weekly, if they cheapen the show, it wont stand out like it does now. Since parents like nikita, they might not groan when there kids turn on the cw. If you can make a show that is recognized as quality by everyone, it will help, even if it isn't an automatic gain, it will pay off in the long run. what do you think perez?

    I will never understand this casting choice. Nikita is my favourite story ever and I'm not watching cause of this tiny asian chick that just doesnt belong. Wilson was the best Nikita ever.

    La Femme Nikita was WAYY better

    I think it's sad that in order to create a show about a female lead, she needs to be subversive to a man. I think that it really demonstrates how sexism remains in society today. There are shows with strong male leads without love interests, yet a show with a strong female lead can't hold an audience. Society thinks it's weird for a woman to be independent and without a man.

    I've got an idea of how to tweak it. Take it off air and put Supernatural back on Thursdays. Mmmmmmm Dean & Sam



  8. 8

    Thursdays at 9pm is the tightest time slot of the week. I LOVED Nikita, but Grey's and CSI are on… I wish they would air it another time or REPLY it later in the night?

    Wilson is the best Nikita.
    though it is odd that they HAVE to make her have a love interest in it. That's actually… kinda annoying…

    I would watch it, but it is just on the wrong night at the wrong time.
    It is going up against CSI and Fringe. Move it to a different time or day and it will be fine.

    La Femme Nakita was a great show but I really like the new Nikita. I am surprised every week when I watch an episode and it keeps me interested.
    I hope they leave it alone. They always want to fix what isn't broken. Give it a min. and they will come.



  12. 12

    Nope, it won't help. Another cancellation coming…



  13. 13

    I love the show the way it is and hope they just keep going. I watch all the other shows at the same time (CSI, Greys, Fringe, The Office) but between DVR, on demand and VCR's, I catch all of them.

    Re: crazychick911 – I think you mean submissive

    Nikita is fine. No tweaking needed.



  16. 16

    don't you people use pvr's and vcr's and torrents etc…there is no excuse these days to miss anything on tv!!



  17. 17

    why not make her an assassin by day and a prostitute by night, im sure it'd get more viewers
    YAWN



  18. 18

    i like the show.

    Re: KiwiJulie – I do agree. Nikita is a good show, but how long has Supernatural been playing? They deserve the Thursday spot, because Fridays suck. (:



  20. 20

    Problem is that she is Asian looking and that the show is a bit silly.

    I live in sweden so I stream this show from the us and I love it. Hope it comes to sweden some day. I think this is a GREAT show. hope they get better ratings though so it will not get shut down after only one season.

    I love the film Nikita. But this image of some girl in a few bits of leather showing her ass and legs is nothing like the french film, in which Anne Parillaud was a feminist icon. This girl looks like a prostitute, a cheap tart.
    It's complete trash and sacrilege of the original film. Rubbish!
    Another classic film ruined by bad taste sleazy Hollywood producers.

    i like the show….i watch it online! but what channel and time is on and day
    so i can support viewint)))



  24. 24

    I watched the first two episodes, then stopped. I loved La Femme Nikita even better. I just can't get into it much.



  25. 25

    This show looks like shit, and asian chick is NASTY. Melrose had a much better cast and storylines.
