Update: Looks like Once matched its performance from last week. For more, click here. The Walking Dead earned a 5.5 adults 18-49 rating, which is lower than most of you predicted. Click here for full press release.

The fall finales of both Once Upon a Time and The Walking Dead air tonight. Reflecting the changing television landscape, it's a certainty that the AMC show will get higher ratings than the ABC show. But let's get specific. Make your predictions for the Adults 18-49 rating of each program then discuss your reasoning, and what our Sunday polls should be while everything is on hiatus, in the comments. For reference, last week Once Upon a Time garnered a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating while The Walking Dead earned a 5.4.

    * I don’t know, sorry :)

    I am going big for The Walking Dead: 5.7 – 5.8. Conserve for Once Upon a Time; 3.2 – 3.3.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    I’m far more interested in the Revenge mid-season finale.

    According to an interview with Gabriel Mann, it’s hard core. A major character is going to be removed from the scene (whether it will be permanent or not is not known.)

    Not that I know of, but I’ll throw together a list of the winter finales in the next week, OK?

    Mon: Castle, Mike & Molly, Bones, The Mob Doctor
    Tue: Go On, The New Normal, Ben & Kate, Emily Owens, MD
    Wed: Suburgatory, Nashvile, SVU, Supernatural
    Thu: 30 Rock, The Office, Parks & Recreation
    Fri: Undercover Boss, CSI: NY, Blue Bloods

    That’s it for this week. The rest are either next week or the week after.

    Once Upon a Time was awesome tonight! It did exactly what OUAT does best: Giving everything to us in a present with a bow on top, and then smashing it with a sledgehammer. Once is definitely the best show on TV!

  • Jp

    That episode the walking dead was sooooo awesome!!!!! The best since the pilot .

  • Jason

    Once: 3.4
    TWD: 6.0

    I really do think TWD could crack the 6.0 mark this week.

    Once Upon a Time was amazing tonight!! But Revenge was just OFF THE CHAIN CRAZY AMAZING!!!

    I think a 3.5 tonight for Once and I am hoping and wishing for a 3.0 for Revenge but it will most likely be 2.6-2.7. Which is definitely up from last weeks low for the flashback ep. (Which from tonight’s episode I actually wanna to back and rewatch it!)

    I haven’t watched The Walking Dead yet but I think it will hit a 6. The thing that works in The Walking Dead’s favor is the fact that between its 9 and 10 airings not even to mention its midnight airing. It usually hits at least a 7.0 so for a mid season finale ratings usually go up but if people switch to watching it love rather than catching the encore airings it will hit new highs.

    My Predictions

    Once 3.5
    Revenge 2.7 (wishing for a 3.0!)
    The Walking Dead 6.1

    Revenge was hardcore!!!! Just when you think the writers are going in one direction, zap they turn in the other.
    Once was really good too. Walking was good but not up to par with what we usually get.

  • Oliver

    When The Walking Dead returns on Feb 10, an hour-long edition of The Talking Dead will follow it instead of AMC repeating the same episode.

    Took them long enough. It’s still a waste of a monster lead-in, but to a much lesser extent than repeating the same damn show.

  • SarahL

    The Walking Dead was crazy good! I am thinking 6.0 now.

  • Tabitha

    3.4 for Once
    might be over reaching a little but… 6.0 for The Walking Dead :D

  • Hillbilly

    Unless OUAT is adjusted up i lost that one. :(
