Maggie Q

Nikita returned Friday night on The CW, but the premiere wasn't nearly as engaging for viewers as it was for its characters. The series scored 950, 000 viewers and a 0.3 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, down 50 percent from last year's opener.

On the other hand, Shark Tank continued its success, earning a series high with a 2.0 in the demo.

ABC and Fox, which aired Game 5 of the National League Championship Series (6.36 million, 1.76), tied for the night in the demo, while CBS led in viewership.
