      i totally agree with jwscott--i can see having a brief interruption if there's something new and important to report, but this was neither, and lasted far too long. i kept checking back all evening, and couldn't believe the 'special report' was still on every time i checked. surely the network must realize that anyone tuned in at that time on friday night is expecting grimm, and that we're not going to stick around to watch rehashed old news. if they wanted a quick way to get us to change channels, they found it.

      I love this show but I'm really sick of the Julia storyline. I'm so bored of her weeping, sad, damsel crap.

    • jwscott1 Apr 21, 2013

      I am sorry and feel for the people involved in the Boston attack. However, I am very upset at NBC, Brian Williams and anyone else that is so stupid to preempt Grimm for the coverage we had seen all week and allday and night, and the suspect has already been captured. Every other cable news station was doing this too. We were made watch all these people clapping their hands and yelling as if at a sports event. I realized the episode of Grimm would not air so I turned the TV off. Enough of this coverage. They run it in the ground. No wonder CBS is number one in the networks. If anyone know if and when the episode "Ring of Fire" is to be aird please let us know. J.s.

      very upset!! they have all these other news stations to show what happened, not to mention he was already captured by the time the show was supposed to air. Brian Williams made it clear he was still going to do my show rock center just a special version.. i am glad i am not the only one upset!!

    • tcjansen Apr 21, 2013

      I'm not really upset about it since I'm from Massachusetts and I have relatives in Watertown. I was, however, able to watch last night's episode. You gotta thank the Canadians here's the link

    • lynandmike Apr 26, 2013

      Hey yeah.... thank you for the link. I just finished watching... However, I think they will be running the 4/19 episode tonight under a different name (Volcanis). But just in case... I was able to watch last weeks. Thanks again.

    • opalzone Apr 23, 2013

      thanks for that!

    • valeriejagnea Apr 20, 2013

      Does anyone know when last nights per-emptied episode will actually air in the central time zone? They shouldn't have done that. Boston was being covered live by all the cable news channel like fox CNN and msnbc. That's why we have those channels.
