See?  The so-called “Friday Night Death Slot” doesn’t have to mean curtains for everyone!  Plenty of series make respectable numbers from those looking for a Friday night fix in lieu of going out, and now NBC holds one of the largest beacons.

TVLine reports that NBC has opted to renew freshman supernatural drama ‘Grimm‘ for a second season, one of the few surviving series from their 2011-2012 pilot season.  Other entries ‘The Playboy Club,’ ‘The Firm,’ ‘Free Agents’ and ‘Prime Suspect’ struck out with their audiences fairly quickly, but ‘Grimm’ managed to find a modicum of success on Friday nights.  Prior to its series finale, ‘Grimm’ had been paired with the final season of ‘Chuck,’ drawing increased viewer attention to the David Greenwalt-written fantasy series.

For those unfamiliar with the series, ‘Grimm’ was created by David Greenwalt, Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter, and stars David Giuntoli as a homicide detective who is also a “Grimm,” a hunter of supernatural villains.

Grimm’s latest outing drew a significant 5.2 million viewers and a demo rating of 1.5, as well as the fact that at last tally its 18-49 numbers saw an increase of 87% over any network series in DVR Live+7 data. For the layman, it done good.  ‘Grimm’s pickup is the first of several expected NBC early renewals for existing series.  Can someone say a little love for ‘Community‘?
