ACF 826: TV's newest Nikita, Maggie Q, gets lots of loving from Entertainment Weekly

The TV show Nikita may be on holiday season hiatus until sometime in January (I think it's either January 20th or 27th), but star Maggie Q has garnered double accolades in Entertainment Weekly's "Best & Worst of 2010" Year-End Double Issue (#1134/1135).

She was deemed Most Drool-Worthy (Mammal Division), an honor to which she certainly is entitled (page 48). EW even used the same photo as appears above, although with the background "Photoshopped" out. (The iPad was selected as Most Drool-Worthy, Non-Mammal Division, another pick with which I heartily concur.)

Maggie was also named one of the 2010 Breakout TV Stars (page 105).

And online, she was one of the 30 Sexiest Stars of 2010 over at EW.com.

Let's hope this publicity translates into even higher viewership. Initially I had some doubts about the series, though none related to Maggie being cast as Nikita. These doubts have totally been removed by recent episodes, particularly the final show before the current break. With Nikita's mole Alex "graduating" from Division training, there are lots more story line possibilities that can be explored.

Maggie Q can be seen in and as Nikita on The CW Network, Thursday nights at 9:00 E.s.t. Check local listings for your area.

    I so agree - Nikita is one of the best shows of this season. No other show has the action, the thrills or the storytelling. This is like Bourne Identity meets Alias. I love every episode, the last one being the Best. Maggie Q is perfect as the new Nikita. If the CW let's this show go, I hope the USA Channel somehow can pick it up. It would go so well with Burn Notice or Covert Affairs. Nikita deserves an audience. Can't wait for its return January 27th.

  2. Yeah, I hope it stays on the CW, too. I faithfully watched the earlier version featuring Peta Wilson, then missed the end of the series. I dropped the extra cable service that included Nikita because it had become the only thing I was paying more to watch. I still only have basic cable, nd I want to continue to see Maggie in action. Here's hoping it'll stay where it is.
