Second Season Premiere of "Grimm" Captures Its Second Highest 18-49 Rating Ever

NBC spins the numbers for Monday, August 13 plus the week of August 6-12. //www.thefutoncritic.com/ratings/2012/08/14/second-season-premiere-of-grimm-captures-its-second-highest-18-49-rating-ever-484503/20120814nbc01/

Grimm Preview: What's Wrong with Juliette?

The season premiere of Grimm ended with vicious cat-like Wesen Mauvais Dentes tricking Nick into coming to a warehouse on his own in search of a couple of FBI agents. Once inside, it sprang an attack on Nick, right as time was ticking away on the potion that may help Juliette out of her magically-induced coma. Can Nick dispatch the Wesen and make it to the hospital in time to save his love? The preview for the next episode of Grimm , titled "The Kiss", indicates that he'll have a little help in that matter, as his mother sneaks into the building and takes control of the creature. Kelly had been slightly shady-seeming in the premiere, her insistence on taking the coins and background knowledge on Nick's exploits as a Grimm making it seem that her trip to Portland might not be all the way positive in nature. Her emotional moments with her son might have been touching (and needed), but there was a little cloud hanging over them. Judging by her actions in the preview, she was sincere, at least enough to want to help Nick in his Grimm duties. Read More... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/pE3UFmtiUiI/

'Grimm' is back...and better than ever. Here are 5 reasons to tune in to NBC's fairy-tale cop drama

"Grimm" returns for its second season tonight (Aug. 13) with a strong premiere that will should immediately hook you -- even if you've never seen NBC's fairy-tale procedural before.

Grimm Sneak Peeks: The Battle Has Yet to Begin

With the season premiere of Grimm looming in the distance, it's about time to get a quick refresher of the major points of the first season and a preview of what's to come for each of the main characters. NBC has already released a seven-minute recap of season one and hinted at the impending danger that Detective Nick Burkhardt will be facing this season, but now we get to hear it straight from the actors and creators of the show. The videos below (and on the next page) serve as a good reminder of the carnage that the Grimm team has already had to endure and the fire that they'll be walking into in season two. Major character points/histories are highlighted (for those who might need the context for the premiere), with brief mentions of the next logical step in their arc also included. The interview with creators Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt is more extensive in both aspects - you get to hear about the show coming together, what they've learned through 22 episodes, and their favorite episodes thus far, but they tease a return from a past guest star and other potential moments from season two that will surely have people talking.

'Grimm's' Silas Weir Mitchell follows the bread crumbs from 'Hansel and Gretel'

Silas Weir Mitchell, the lupine Monroe on "Grimm," enjoys talking about Nietzsche, Kierkegaard and Sartre.Mitchell's been reflecting on his studies at Brown University because he reads during his downtime from filming NBC's spooky drama, which returns for a second season Monday, Aug. 13."Kierkegaard and Sartre and Nietzsche were the guys I studied," he tells Zap2it. "I took a bunch of philosophy classes. Kierkegaard was right on the cusp of the religious-minded thinkers, considering individual will, the birth of existentialism, the transition of classical mentality to a more modern mentality. He asks the religious questions, which turn into the existential questions of 'Who am I? Where am I in the world?' To me, anyway, he was in the late 19th century and modernism hit with the First World War."Mitchell talks as easily about philosophy and comparative religion as he does about acting. He knew pretty early on that he was at home onstage. Considering his current... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/08/grimms-silas-weir-mitchell-follows-the-bread-crumbs-from-hansel-and-gretel.html
