How Will 'Revolution' Fare Tonight? (Poll)

Update: most of those voting in the poll got it right, a preliminary 3.1 adults 18-49 rating for the episode on Monday, October 8, 2012.

Revolution may have been picked up for a full season, but its still going to need to keep up a strong performance if its going to make it to the holy grail of so-called "genre" television: a second season. While the premiere had a strong performance, the show has been dipping steadily each week (last week saw it dip to a 3.2 after the previous week's 3.4 adults 18-49 rating), which could become an issue if the trend continues. So what do you think? Cast your vote and tell us why in the comments!

    @The End, I’m not saying they’ll stick with it forever but even SGU got about five eps before it really started to tank, as did Caprica and many others over the years. (Who can forget BSG 1980 for example? lol)And five eps in today’s fast paced multi channeled world is a lot of time and patience IMHO. ;)

    2.6- 2.9, which is where I think it settles for the season.

    I really love new NBC trailer for RVN:

    Check out an all-new episode of Revolution, America’s most-watched new show! This Monday after The Voice on NBC.

    2.9 for Revolution. The Voice won’t be quite as strong tonight since the blind auditions are done. The revamped battle rounds–featuring “steals”–may hold the audience better than what happened the prior two seasons but Revolution’s lead-in will be weaker. Hence, Revolution’s rating will be weaker also.

    2.8 amazing this turkey is doing so well.

  • genep

    hange it to a 9pm time slot and I bet the numbers hold steady or go up. 10pm Monday time slot = death. Hate to say it but MNF and WWE plus the rotation of crappy reality make it tough

  • Chicago Fire this Wednesday on NBC

    Revolution is doing surprisingly well this season on a really crowded night. Unlike Go On it has kept a good amount of The Voice’s audience and it might be responsible for taking a lot of viewers away from Hawaii Five-0.

  • JoAnne

    I’m so done with this show. Hope others are as well and it goes bye-bye.

  • Jared

    If the downward ratings trend continues I predict a 3.1 for Revolution. which is still good for this show.

  • DC

    i’m more interested in seeing GG beating MD. :p

    As a sci fi lover, I hope it gets better in both ratings and writing.

    I’m having a really hard time rationalizing a mother shooting a looter in front of her kids compared to a militia taking a 5 hour break with crying and hugs all around to give a full burial, in the open on a major highway, for a grunt who got himself shot during a home invasion.

    The writing is bad. The concept is interesting, losing the ability to generate electricity and how it impacts our life, but it comes off like the Hunger Games and Lost had an illegitimate child.

    The best actor they had was killed in the first episode. I love Giancarlo Esposito, but hes just collecting a check in this show. The writing is so bad its making the actors look like they are mailing it in.

    I really enjoyed the first two episodes of the series, but I’m not sure the third quite lived up to the hype. While I think the plot is very interesting, I would be concerned as to how long it can sustain hour-long episodes. It also seems to be getting even more niche, and yeah, I enjoy the action, but I’m FAR more likely to turn on Castle at 10 and watch this at another time during the week. It’s still not dynamic enough to get me to tune in on-time. Feels more like a movie rather than a serial drama and I like TV to look like TV.

  • Jordan

    I’m done with this show. The Mob Doctor is more interesting at this point.

    I watched all of it up until today but I’m giving up on RVN. It’s sometimes funny (thanks to Billy Burke and the millionaire computer guy, from Mad Men) but mostly depressing. Despite some of the good actors in it I’m stopping. If I hear of it getting more interesting later I might catch up online. I’d rather stick with Castle if I’m to watch anything “live.”

  • Rebecca

    ^ Giancarlo Esposito…that’s who I meant as the other good actor in the show. Saw another comment above that mentioned him, just forgot his name when I commented. Even he can’t save the show for me. Loved him in Breaking Bad though.

  • Alexa

    I love the hate posters. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it.

    That said: 2.9

  • TeeVeeViewer

    I gave up on “Revolution” last week after enduring three episodes. As the story and character info. is sloooooowly unfurled, the episodes are punctuated by sword, gun, and fist fights, and that’s become the formula. It had promise, but wasn’t worth the effort to stay tuned to see what little drips of plot are doled out each week.
