Grimm
debuted in October to 6.5 million viewers and a 2.1 in the adults-18-to-49 demographic  and has remained a solid performer by Friday night standards. Its most recent airing grabbed 5.2 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating.

The renewal marks NBC's first pickup for next season. Grimm's relative success also stands in contrast to such other NBC freshmen series as The Playboy Club, Prime Suspect, and The Firm, all of which floundered quickly.
