    Just happy that OUAT and Revenge were not adjusted down. I watch Good Wife as well. It is an exceptional show and I’m glad that they are getting rid of Kalinda’s husband. He just ruined her for me.


    @ BigBrotherFan

    Kalinda’s husband is leaving, don’t know when, but soon (I think). That whole storyline is really a WTF? Rumour has it the storyline between her & the FBI agent thickens.

    Great for OUaT and REVENGE! Great Shows, Great casts, deserves those ratings (Or Better Ratings, But thats good :))

  • John A

    Good Wife at least is stable. Kind of bored of Revenge hope it gets better.

  • John A

    Good that Kalinda Husband is going. That story is a borefest.

    I can see Once Upon A Time and Revenge being around each other for a while. In midseason, they should cancel 666 Park Ave and move Scandal there, move Nashville to Thursdays at 10, and Red Widow to Wednesdays at 10.

    Revenge is Amazing going against Dexter, the Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, The Good Wife, the World Series, NFL Football and toss in there Hurricane Sandy and still getting the rating its getting.

    ABC must be really happy with Once and Revenge, Revenge doing better than last season having moved into one of the most competitive slots on TV.

    Why Baseball’s numbers are from 8.30 when the first pitch was at 8.15?
    If that’s the case, the numbers are not accurate

  • Joe

    Good Wife Revenge ONCE and The Mentalist best night

  • Ultima

    Why Baseball’s numbers are from 8.30 when the first pitch was at 8.15?
    If that’s the case, the numbers are not accurate

    Typo/oversight? The numbers are correct.

    Revenge is doing well enough but I’d hardly call 9PM Sundays “competitive.”

    I’m italian (I live in Rome) and thanks to Torrent I can see my favourite american series few hours after their broadcast in USA. Americans are the best in creating juicy fiction operas, no one can beat you. I follow Revenge (my favourite), The Walking Dead, Homeland, Once Upon a Time and the british Downton Abbey. I think that Revenge, Homeland and the Walking Dead have potentially the same target of viewers (looking for adventures and “guilty pleasures”, even if Homeland is a little more “intellectual”). So according to me Revenge is doing VERY FINE in its new slot, because I think that its potential viewership divide on Sundays.
    Sorry for my english mistakes, and thanks to this wonderful site for its insights on our favourite series! And thanks to all the commenters that make reading the articles very very interesting!

    So 666 is actually pretty much tied with the Mentalist in the 18 to 49 demo? Thats great.
