    @DanS your answer doesn’t convince me :( anyway, if the show wants to return successfully they must change the actors, writers, everything.
    also if The Voice, DWTS and Castle could keep their audience last night, why RVN couldn’t? see previous Mondays.

  • Matt

    Now need to worry for Castle – this epp doesn’t count in the overall average.

    revolution is going on a hiatus! well that’s it then, already i’m holding on by a string to this show interest wise, this is sure to kill it!

    i know this because last year after the xmas break i waited till the season finale to watch the following 13 episodes more or less of vampire diaries and the secret circle!!! i still haven’t watched trueblood latest season, i think vampire fatigue is setting in where i’m concerned!

    @ Dan S

    Revolution is a hit (?), but there will be a question mark next to it as long as it always needs the Voice as a lead in.

    We, unfortunately, will never see how Revolution will performed without the massive (5.8 lead-in in the last 15 minutes) from the Voice.

    We know H50 and Castle stay about the same without a lead-in. Could Revolution hold those numbers without the Voice? Most people, and even NBC with the way their holding it back till the Voice returns, don’t think so.

    I wills say… Without the Voice, Revolution would be in a very close three way race for the Monday at 10PM slot.

    @ Monica,

    There are reports like yours for Castle as well. Some posters around the central Florida area said that their ABC feeds were cut off by DirectTV, but such reports were common yesterday.

    Very good for The Voice and Revolution even regardless of all the East Coast preemptions.

  • john

    Will the Voice ever beat Walking Dead?

    Revolution still at 3.0 — I think its safe to call it a hit.

    It’s funny how you’re saying Revolution’s 3.0 in its first season makes it a “hit”, yet people (not you) are saying that Grey’s Anatomy’s occasional 3.0 in its ninth season makes it a “fail”. Oh, the irony.

  • BD

    On the East Coast we had the news most of the night due to Sandy so Revolution wasn’t even aired here

  • Dan S

    So until NBC moves Revolution away from The Voice people are going to say its dependent on that show to prop it up. Remember Smash from last year ? Didn’t it drop as low as 1.9 after The Voice ? A lot of viewers including myself don’t even watch The Voice & I’m quite confident it could be a great 9pm tent pole next season like Tues. If people didn’t like the show it’d be down considerably more by now. I’ll be curious to see how it repeats this Fri for those that missed it last night.

    So apart from not counting in the show’s season average which as stated above is for network PR purposes only, does the network still consider the ratings received when considering the performance of a show or is it as if it never occurred? Also do the results count from last night count for sweeps still?

    “So apart from not counting in the show’s season average which as stated above is for network PR purposes only, does the network still consider the ratings received when considering the performance of a show or is it as if it never occurred?”

    They “count” in the only way that matters, in the pricing of the advertising for the ads from last night (or at least the commercial ratings do, but we don’t see those).

    I doubt the ratings on an historically wacky night like Monday will matter to the future of any individual show, but then again, the ratings on any single night really don’t matter for any individual show.

    “Also do the results count from last night count for sweeps still?”

    Every show that carries ads counts for a network’s ratings average. There’s nothing that opts ratings out of a network’s average that I know of.

    Although “sweeps” on a national level have mostly become a PR construct too. On a local level, sweeps ratings are still important for setting local ad rates.

    All I know is I got none of these shows last night – in DC during the Hurricane on Monday, all the shows were not on and instead replaced by local Hurricane coverage.

  • Bob Jones

    Is there a way for NBC’s Revolution to bump up its numbers? I know about the irregular weather patterns in the East Coast, but I mean in terms of storytelling?

    I watch Castle (S 05), Hawaii Five-O (S 03)and Revolution (Live) – I am wondering if there is a way for it to blow up like The Walking Dead (without the Zombies). It seems that Falling Skies and Terra Nova were higher (18-49 3.0+ I’m not sure).

    Anyone got ideas?

  • Traywana

    Looks like Castle is again the biggest loser with the readjustment. Shoot that horse and put it out of its misery. On a happier note, Revolution looks like it is a bonafide hit.

  • Baaa!!!

    Revolution is handling its boost from The Voice nicely so far. Its slowed its decent and has not collapsed and has shown that it remained steady when its lead-in had a drop. If all it had going for it was a large lead-in it would have dropped off harder by now.I do think it will get down under 3.0 into the high 2’s, but then again it would still be a top 10 slot show even if it did.

  • mxxlive

    One of the dew reasons why The Voice was so high (even reaching – 5.0 mark) is because there wasn’t anything there to watch. The voice and DWTS weren’t replays so what so you expect. So the viewers were left two watch those who aren’t replays. An also they’re forced to be stuck in their homes

  • Baaa!!!

    Oh Traywana you will have Castle next season to gripe about next season. It will be back somewhere on ABC’s schedule. (Friday, mid-season or emergency filler for a failed show if not a regular spot) Oh no whats that ringing? :)

  • Baaa!!!

    edit: Revolution would be a top 10pm slot show even if it did.

    the voice and xtina has an amazing rating but britney is still #1

    Swift’s sizzling start is also the second-largest sales frame for a female artist. Only Britney Spears had a bigger week, when “Oops! . . . I Did It Again” sold 1.319 million in its debut in 2000…

    maybe x factor don’t have the best ratings yet but after all this years Spears is still number 1 haters
