    Wow, its crazy to think, that if OUAT was DOA like most people predicted in October, than ABC would really have to start from scratch on Sundays next season…

    I was one of them,now its my fav show!

    Sad that DH didn’t go higher but loved the finale so that’s all that matters. Will miss our Housewives but at least we’ll have an awesome 3 hours next year with Revenge, OUAT, and 666 Park Ave.

  • Bee

    GO OUAT! awesome stuff.

    hopefully people catch up this summer so the show can start big next season and REALLY become the superstar series that it has the potential to be. i think at least a 3.7 is a given, but i would love if it began season 2 with another 4.0.

  • Mickey 1.0

    Wow, surprised OUAT beat DH. I might actually start watching OUAT, the trailer looked okay when it I saw it before the show started, but considering the ratings are so high, I’m assuming it’s a very good show.

    It’s funny, from the trailers I thought I’d like Grimm but not OUAT, but it was the other way around. I didn’t connect at all with Grimm, but OUAT has me hooked. It’s fun and it’s good storytelling.

    just because a show has a high rating, doesn’t mean it’s good – e.g., DWTS, AI, TAHM, MF, etc.

    Just because you don’t think a show is good doesn’t mean the rest of us don’t think it’s good.

    I predicted a 3.3 and 11 million for DH. I was right on the money viewership-wise and almost got it right w/the demo. So it finished its season with the same rating it started with – 3.2. I guess that’s as good a result as any.

    Goodbye, ladies of Wisteria Lane. You will be missed! :(

    When will NBC get rid of Trump. He has been losing in the ratings since the first year. Down hill every year. And he is such an asswipe. I guess Nbc is afraid of him & really does’t mind losing in the ratings week after week with this schmuck. fire his ass now!!

  • The End


    They’re not filler episodes, pretty much all the characters mentioned have had significant parts in Storybrooke, if anything these episodes were more the writers giving them a backstory, as the dwarfs are key characters in the fairy tale plotline.

  • Survivor Fan

    At least we got one tenth back. I do want to see Survivor premiere to at least a 3.0 in the fall.

  • The End

    @Survivor Fan

    Why? Survivor is dead cheap to produce, these ratings mean nothing. It would get renewed every season with 10 million viewers 2.6 average for example, even slightly less.

  • Chris

    DH’s SERIES finale couldn’t hold all of its demo lead-in from OUAT’s SEASON finale.

    The final humiliation. :)

  • forg

    Once Upon a Time did well, hopefully ABC keeps it in reruns for the rest of the summer. I think it has a shot to pick up new audiences

    Really disappointing for Survivor. I hope Survivor: Philippines next season won’t decline further

    i love Lost but lets not forget, Lost was in its 6th season and Desperate Housewives was in its 8th. DH rated higher in 2010 for its 6th season. If Lost was still around and was in its 8th season who knows what kind of ratings it would get?

  • zee

    chris, whatever! Its humiliating to see OUAT gets only a 3.3 in its first season and for you to compare it with an 8 year show! I doubt OUAT will last 8 years, don’t you think?
