Guess the Ratings for Tonight's Episode of 'Revolution'

So far, Revolution is the biggest hit of the new television season. It premiered to a huge 4.1 adults 18-49 rating. It held up well in its second week, beating the season premieres of Castle and Hawaii Five-0 head-to h-head with a 3.4 adults 18-49 rating. NBC is touting how well the second episode did in Live +3 ratings. In theory, this could be a strong week for Revolution since interest in its competitors might have peaked with their season premieres and the odds that this week's Monday Night Football Game will be an insane as last week's are very slim. On the other hand, The Event premiered big on NBC  then declined steadily. The question remains: is Revolution the next Once Upon a Time or the next Fast Forward? Take your best guess.

    I’ll go ahead and say a 3.0 rating. Still respectable though.

  • Naif

    loved the “Actual Worldwide Blackout Occurs at 10PM; Nielsen Does Not Release Ratings”.

  • The End

    Somewhere around 8 million, 2.5-2.9 18-49.

    From what I understand I think the show will fall from a great height.

    This show is one of the most hyped up overrated piece of junk I’ve seen in a while.

  • EatMorePez

    Bears vs Cowboys on MNF. Two teams with large followings will probably impact the ratings for Revolution (and everything else) tonight. I’ll guess 2.9

  • LMG

    The next Flash Forward 3.2

  • Dillan


  • Ali

    I think the show is going to stabilize around high 2s and it might hit low 3s occasionally.

  • Jass

    Its going to fall fast and hard

  • John A


  • NCJeff

    Could be low three’s, but I’m voting in the 2.5-2.9 range. I think it’ll take another hit and follow the trajectory of shows like The Event, Flash Forward, Alcatraz, etc.

    I think where shows like this really die off is when they start with reruns or go on hiatus. Your average police procedural can keep going. Serialized dramas don’t fare so well.

  • Alex

    Even if it drops to 3.0-3.4, most of the loss should be blamed on a better MNF matchup (fanbases). I see it bouncing back to a 3.5 sometime this fall, it all depends on MNF matchups.

    Does location of the show matter? Revolution is a Midwest/Chicago based show. Chicago Bears are playing Monday night.

    I voted 3.5-3.9 just on the fact that I know H50 fans that are choosing Revolution over it for their live viewing.

  • Baqinardo

    It survived vs H50 and Castle’s premiere.
    It can happen again.
    Match up last week #s.

  • Hillbilly

    Sara Bibel has a sense of humor. :lol:

    Dear God put us out of our misery with this trash. I did watch the premier and was bored and hated the entire thing. I actually thought the loss of electricity was intersting but they should have focused on that maybe not skip so much time. Anyway, I predict that Hawaii 5 0 will go up in ratings not to beat anything specifically but I think that rating last week was too strange for it to continue that low.

  • Tyson

    Blackout, aka Bears-Cowboys.

  • DryedMangoez

    I say around a 3.0

  • KS

    I simply don’t understand why people hate this show and compare with non-sense shows like LOST.

  • CrimTV


    Yeah NBC are gonna cancel this show right now cause it’s doing sooo bad in the ratings ;)
