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!

    If ratings dropped last chapter was because of Ruby, I mean this is not one of the best characters of OUAT, Meghan is not a good actress and last chapter was about her, and the most important OUAT competed with football and despite of that It´s a hit series.

    Liz & Dick will be on at 9. ”

    Thank You.
    What do you think the ratings will be for it?

    I am curious if people will tune in to see if Lindsay Lohan does well or if it will be a train wreck

    Liz & Dick comes on at 9:00 so it’s not going against OUAT, it’s going against Revenge. And football ends at 11:30 so a lot of people will tune in at least around 10:00 so I think that won’t effect OUAT either. I think the things that will effect OUAT are The BET Hip Hop Awards and the FOX comedies.

    I’m hoping for a rebound of at least a couple of tenths.

    Also, the picture makes me happy. :) (Emma and Mary Margaret/Snow are the heart of the show for me.)

    Once has become too convoluted and dreary.

    In the first season, you could almost, sort of, suspend disbelief long enough to enjoy it.

    In the second season, the writers made it impossible to suspend disbelief at all, and it’s now become yet another bad show.

  • greysfan

    I say yes and i think it will be around a 3.1-3.2 This show is great.

  • mike

    Liz and Dick has gotten some terrible reviews. I guess it comes off sort of comical. I may watch for the train wreck factor

  • mike

    Also I’m loving Once this season. Revenge isn’t as good as last season.

    Once 3.1
    Revenge 2.6
    666 1.5

  • Brian

    2.9. Small recovery.

  • Mark

    Once Upon A Time – 2.9
    Revenge – 2.5
    666 Park Avenue – 1.3

  • Patrick G.

    Back to 3.1-3.3

    Because I said so!

  • sarah nz

    2.9 – only ever seen the pilot, but do wonder how long it can run for…

  • frodo

    I love Revenge this season, its better than ever. Once Upon a Time has had a mediocre season so far, which is a shame as the season finale last season really got me pumped up.

  • HB

    Once was great last night.
    Revenge had a filler episode.So it might be down! But the next week promo looks great!

  • Simon

    Yes it’ll recover, it recovered from that 2.8 last season. Also, LOL at some comments here deeming Once dead by May. Unless something happens like a MAJOR downward spiral cancellation is HIGHLY unlikely.

    Aside from that episode, the ratings have been VERY steady between high to mid to low 3s.

  • jonboyelk

    Just not enjoying it this season. Once the curse was lifted the entire premise of the series was lost. And Regina is just not as villainous.

  • matt

    3.2 and 9.4M

  • Uofmguy423

    3.1-3.3. It always takes a weird dip and then rises back up. Seems to have settled in the 3.0-3.4 territory.

    My 15 year old loves Once. I really hope that it stays on the air for her sake.
