    I love Revenge,unfortunately Sunday we were having storms and my satellite was out so I didn’t get to watch it,OUAT or 666 until yesterday online.Revenge was amazing,if possible even better than last year.I am not a huge fan of OUAT and I thought I would like 666 because I was a huge Lost fan but I really did not care for it.

  • HB

    Yayyyy.. Once got adjusted up. Revenge at the same rating.So happy for my two favorite shows!

    Bad News for 666 Park Avenue.

  • Takesi Akamatsu

    I see several problems with 666.

    1: It’s name. I can see many religious folks instantly turned off by it.
    2: The premise. I see it being a show that will constantly show unhappy endings. “Oh, it’s your time to go…. and it’s your time, and yours, and yours…” That will get old very quickly.

    Horror works in quick short amounts, such as a movie… Extended horror will just end up with desensitized bored viewers.

  • JR

    Yay for OUAT.

    Sundays at 10 just doesn’t seem to be all that great a time for any non-football programming.

  • Tyson

    John_M, regardless of what the advance schedule says, the SNF ball isn’t kicked until 8:30, week in and week out. Sara’a right.

    Great ratings for OUAT, Revenge and The Simpsons!

    ABC is having a bad year with their new shows. Last year they had strong debuts except for Charlie’s Angels. Nashville is their last hope for now

  • Andrew

    ABC is going to have a rough time filling that 10:00pm Sunday spot.
    They should have kept Brothers & Sisters going. only thing that posted decent numbers in that spot.
    Pan Am lost transaction, GCB premiered about the same as 666 Park Ave.
    I say it is going to be a goner just like last year.

  • pickles

    Good Wife and Mentalist will be canceled. I enjoy football on Sunday when football is over i hope CBS has found something decent to air.

  • TomeZ

    So, the simpsons with a 8.5 (NFL Football Overrrun) as a lead in, had a 3.8 and it was against 4.7 (from: Football Night in America Part 2). Family guy with a 2.6 (Bob’s Burger) as a lead in had 3.3 and it was against a 9.0 (NFL Football Live). Well I think family guy isn’t that bad.
    What will hapenned if Fox move family guy at 8 afer football?

    Great season premiere for OUAT :)

  • Steve

    If I was ABC I’d be eyeing that 10pm slot after Revenge for Nashville or Castle. I think Nashville will do as good there as it will on Wed at 10pm. Castle needs to get out of the ratings black hole which is DWTS. Put a fork in DWTS, cause its done.

  • Fakeem

    666 will be cancelled after they air the episode with Whoopie Goldberg. I can’t see them axing it if the View is gonna push it. Whoopie said her episode will air in December. If 666 gets cancelled before that, either they will move up that episode, or they will try and let it grow while CBS is in reruns after sweeps.

    On the west coast the nfl game is always on during the simpsons and its over by the time family guy comes on. I always watch the game dvr the simpsons and watch family guy live cause the game usually ends by the time family guy starts.

  • TomeZ

    Then I have another questons : why the simpsons always go down during spring?

    Last year during the fall (when the nfl was on) The simpsons were really high: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2011/12/05/tv-ratings-sunday-simpsons-family-guy-get-a-big-boost-once-upon-a-time-pan-am-hit-lows-as-of-course-sunday-night-football-wins/112606/

    During spring : http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2012/05/15/sunday-final-ratings-once-upon-a-time-family-guy-survivor-adjusted-up-survivor-reunion-dateline-adjusted-down/134077/

    I think animation domination depends on the football!

    sorry for my english XD

  • Alicia M

    I loved 666 and I hope more people will watch next week. Loved OUAT too.

  • sailingsam

    The good wife is great (on a bad night) and love Revenge…

  • TheHafk

    Bobs was adjusted UP? Yes. One of the best ratings the shows gotten since the series premiere. It deseves it!

  • Brian

    Great to see OUAT adjusted up. It was an awesome premiere :)

  • Nick

    I’ll give three weeks before 666 is replaced by Last Resort or Nashville.
    It will likely be Last Resort, because Suburgatory will still be a good lead-in for Nashville. Last Resort needs a new slot PRONTO.

  • Bee

    666 failing is so strange. i can understand crashing in the 2nd week. but to be near DOA? so weird. it had the stars, the timeslot, the lead-in, the promotion, the intrigue.

    it’ll probably be replaced by last resort or scandal at some point. i doubt nashville. they’ve been promoting it as wednesday october 10th for so long. plus i want it to have the modern family lead-in.

  • rob60990

    YAY at Revenge holding steady in the demo and rising a bit in viewers.

    The only thing 666 Park Avenue had going for it was its cast and I think thats the only reason the show got picked up. The premise didn’t seem like something that would work.
