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!

    My predictions:

    Once Upon A Time 3.4

    Revenge 2.7

    Happy Endings 1.2

    Apt 23 1.0

    The previews for Tallahassee clearly showed that episode would adapt from the Jack and the bean stalk story. Last night’s marathon of OUAT didn’t give viewers a good preview of tonight’s episode. Most of the preview was simply footage from old episodes. So I predict Tallahassee (3.5) will do better than The Cricket Game.

    Last year Desperate Housewives increased 0.3 in its first new episode after the Christmas break. I predict Revenge will repeat the increase in ratings from a 2.4.

    ABC did promote the airing of two episodes of Happy Endings and Apt 23 per week for several days. I’m not as pessimistic as some posters are. NBC did air a new episodes of 30 Rock at 10 pm during the fifth season of the show.
    The December 9, 2010 episode had a 2.1 rating. However the first episode to air at 10 pm (January 20, 2011) had a 2.7 rating. A 10 pm time slot isn’t an immediate death sentence for a comedy but it surely doesn’t help. I don’t think the two comedies will do better than Pan Am (1.3) did 52 weeks ago.

    Who cares? I’m much more interested in the return of Revenge!

    The bigger question for me is how well the Biggest Loser reboot does. I’m guessing a 2.5.

    Okay, ABC Is really starting to annoy me. It doesn’t make a difference for Apartment 23. They keep putting it behind HE which is really annoying me. They should put them each on separate nights because bunching them together will decline the ratings. I think tonight Apartment 23 will tick up slightly but not as much as I want it to.

    Both Apartment 23 and HE deserve better ratings.

    Once Upon a Time: 3.1
    Revenge: 2.3
    Happy Endings: 1.0
    Apt 23: .9
