Once Upon A Time is back this week after taking a break for the American Music Awards. Two weeks ago, Once Upon a Time dropped to a series low 2.7,  possibly caused by big NFL overruns on FOX. The week before, the series scored a decent 3.4 adults 18-49 rating. Can the series rebound this week or is it destined to go lower? Cast your vote and tell us why in the comments!

    jo why do u hate once that much

    @Jo the chances of this show being cancelled are less than zero

    I think Ouat will rebound in january like it did last year(2.9 in December, 3.7 in January)


  • Dan S

    I voted with the majority 3.1-3.3 bouncing back. People are done with the Holiday & would like to relax with light family fare before returning to work & school tomorrow. I’m willing to bet however that 666 will hit another low now that it’s been cancelled. At least they have enough time to bring the series to a proper ending.


    Hoping for at least a 3.0

    Tonight big game on NBC NFL Sunday Night Football. Green Bay Packers at New York Giants, both teams draw big ratings.
    So, Once Upon A Time on ABC will be down. 2.6 18-49 rating.

    Definitely over a 3, last time was just an ok episode plus the overrun, this week it has the regular competition plus the commercial looked extra awesome, I say 3.3

    I do Not


    @Jo the chances of this show being cancelled are less than zero

    Even if it score less than 2.5?

  • Nick

    @ joe, it will have to get numbers like 666 Park Avenue & Last Resort from now until May, & the odds of that happening are less than zero

  • Liam

    The show will reboiund his week. I am hoping for at least a 3.0. The overrun killed it last time so with none this time (hopefully) the rating will increase. If the show can get a 3.3 I would be over the moon.

  • NBC is awesome


  • Damo

    I think it will get a 3.2 maybe slightly higher so it will bounce back fine

    @Crim TV

    It should defiantly hold a 3 but what do you think if season 2 so far some decent episodes

  • Matt

    In its last episode Once got a 2.7 in the first half hour and a 2.8 in the second half hour, so when the Overrun was finished many tuned back into Once, so there is hope for a rise tonight.

  • Cyrax86

    Guessing a 3.2.

    Even if it score less than 2.5?


  • Max

    Why is it always “Once” for the poll?? How about we mix it up? Like Once and Amazing Race , example.

  • Fake Me Out

    I tend to agree w/jo in that this show won’t see a third season, or at least a full third season. It’s in a downward death spiral in the ratings and will be below 2.0 by next spring. Stick a fork in it, this turkey is done.
