After a solid premiere last week NBC’s “Grimm”
maintained an impressive amount of its audience, winning the hour for NBC in the 18-49 demo. Its lead in, “Chuck,” continues to struggle in its final season with a series low last night, meaning that the World Series competition last week likely can’t be blamed for its dismal premiere numbers.

As always, the CBS procedurals dominated the night. On FOX, “Fringe” got a slight boost from the return of Peter (Joshua Jackson). “Nikita” and “Supernatural” remain steady performers for The CW.
