'Chuck' and 'Grimm' Swing Miss Opposite World Series, But Will Re-Air Saturday Night NBC was the only major network that decided to plow ahead with its scheduled Friday premieres, even though they were going up against Game 7 of the World Series. Fox had benched its breakout hit 'New Girl' for the entire series and CBS decided Friday to hold a new episode of 'A Gifted Man' until next week.

Well, the ratings are in, and it appears NBC's decision to air 'Chuck' and 'Grimm' was as dubious as some of Tony La Russa's moves in Game 5. But just like the Cardinals manager, both shows will get a chance at redemption.

According to TVLine, Chuck's Season 5 premiere pretty much bombed. Only 3.4 million viewers watched, a paltry 1.0 rating in the coveted 18-49 year old demo.

Perhaps capitalizing on some pre-Halloween momentum, the spooky procedural 'Grimm' did much better, notching 6.5 million total viewers and a 2.1 demo rating.

To atone for the scheduling snafoo, NBC will re-air both premieres on Saturday night, with 'Chuck' at 8PM ET and 'Grimm' at 9PM ET and also Tuesday night on SyFy.

After the jump, check out some clips from both shows.

'Chuck': A Miraculous Discovery

'Grimm': The Secret's Out
