Perhaps because of the proximity to Halloween, the last Friday in October has been very good to Grimm historically; it shocked the world by premiering to a 2.1 demo against Game 7 of the World Series two years ago, and it hit its only other 2.0 on a Friday last year with the Mockingbird Lane lead-in. Another 2.0 tonight feels like a stretch, as the show was pulling around a 1.4 late in its Friday run last season, and its new teammate Dracula won't be a direct lead-in. But the upper half of the 1's seems doable. And as a show with a potential future, Dracula has gotten more promotion than Mockingbird Lane did when it hung a 1.5 on this night last year. Is it good promotion? I'm not sure.
Grimm PLUS Dracula Over/Under: 3.25.
