NBC gets spiked by World Series game 7

Tonight's game spells trouble for the struggling network's plans

NBC gets spiked by World Series game 7

Boy, when you’re having a bad year, everything goes wrong. NBC, which has been desperate for a hit this season, held back one its best hopes, Grimm, until tonight. Here’s a preview of the show.

The idea was to wait until the dust of the new season had settled and the World Series was over . Then a weather delay hit and the showdown between the Cards and the Rangers heated up and suddenly instead of facing minimal competition, Grimm is on against the deciding game of a World Championship. As is the season debut of NBC's Chuck, a show which has only ever known bad luck.

Even CBS, which had far less to lose, pulled its Friday lineup, and is showing repeats, to protect its properties, like Blue Bloods.

Our predictions for NBC tonight? The ratings will be Grimm.
