Once Upon a Time returns tonight from its month-long hiatus. Will viewers return too? The fall finale four weeks ago earned a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating, which was even with the previous week. Do you think Once will continue to match these ratings, or will tonight's episode see some fluctuation? Cast your vote and tell us why in the comments!

    A slight bump, 3.3.

  • JulieDawn

    If it airs on time I say 3.2 – but the football will probably run over and if so, it will push OUAT into the premiere of Downton Abbey, which could possibly hurt it a little.

  • Baqinardo

    What are you talking about? OUAT always airs on time.
    There’s no football on ABC on Sundays.

  • rob60990

    ^What are you talking about? ABC does not air football so it will be starting at 8/7c no matter what.

  • John A

    3.2 not that i watch or care but hope it gives Revenge a boost.

  • John K.

    The real question is how will Happy Endings/Apt 23 do!

  • Californiadgd

    3.2-3.3 No football

  • Jame

    I think a 3.2, because all the other stuff are repeats and there is no Walking Dead (?)

  • John A

    Has ABC promoted HE and Apt 23 much?

  • Melissa

    I’m gonna be optimistic and go with 3.4.

  • JulieDawn

    LOL sorry everyone! I am in Canada and CTV (who airs OUAT here) is showing the Seattle-Washington NFC Wildcard game, which I guess is on FOX down there. Actually thank you for pointing that out, I will change my DVR recording for OUAT from CTV to ABC to ensure I don’t miss it!

    That’s what I get for posting before I have my coffee to wake up the brain!

    Once Upon a Time (R): 1.2
    Once Upon a Time: 3.4
    Revenge: 2.8
    Happy Endings: 0.8 [series low]
    Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23: 0.5 [series low]

    60 Minutes: 1.7
    Person of Interest (R): 1.3
    The Good Wife: 1.6
    The Mentalist: 1.7

    NFL Wild Card Football: 8.5
    NFL Postgame: 5.0
    The Simpsons: 3.3
    Bob’s Burgers: 2.5
    Family Guy: 2.6
    American Dad: 2.2

    Dateline NBC: 1.1
    The Biggest Loser: 2.3

    Due to all the buzz and the marathon on Saturday, OUAT should go up to 3.4. The Biggest Loser & Dateline will premiere OK, and the 2 ABC comedies will flop.

    @John A
    Just Happy Endings. Not A23.

    What did it get last January?

  • Nick


    It got a 3.7, which was 8 tenths higher than the midseason finale.

  • Ram510

    BTW Happy Endings and Apt 23 will be on every Sunday now? I thought it was just a one Sunday deal. Wow ABC can’t wait to get them off the air. And I thought they treated Cougar Town like crap

  • Ram510

    Wow a 3.7 last January, it can definitely get over a 3.5 tonight. Maybe even closer to a 4.0, we saw CBS bounced back on Thursday. I think now that the holidays are over people are ready to watch TV again

  • Joseph

    I think FOX will see real boosts due to wildcard game- same time last year and in the same situation the Simpsons ended up topping the week! Don’t expect higher than TBBT but possibly 4s at least!
