Once Upon a Time is no stranger to going up against football, but tonight CBS is airing the AFC championship, which will probably pull more viewers away than a regular-season game. Do you think Once Upon a Time can at least match last week's 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, or is Once destined to hit a new low? Make your predictions below and tell us what you think in the comments!

    I’m really afraid for Revenge. Everybody will watch the end of AFC championship on CBS, and ABC haven’t did a big promo of tonight’s episode…

  • rob60990

    The game is pretty much its only competition. FOX and NBC are in reruns. It won’t have much to compete with on the West Coast. Last week’s episode ended on a cliffhanger as well. I’d say it holds its 2.8 rating at least.

    I’m awaiting for Joseph to predict it will go below a 1.0. ;)

  • Don Juan

    it will come in somewhere between 2.6 and 2.9.

  • Dan S

    Interesting that ABC is the only network to program new shows against the AFC game. I’m erring on the side of caution & guessing OUAT will get 2.6-2.7. The big news will be if Revenge dips below 2.0 tonight.

  • Mi

    I hope for above 3.0, the game is the only competition and I think it will hurt Revenge more.

  • omabin

    I think ABC is crazy for scheduling these super serial dramas against all these big events, when later on they will just have weeks of repeats and hiatus. Makes no sense to me. I think Once will be okay, considering, it should be able to do a 2.8 or 2.7. My biggest concern is Revenge though, I am really affraid for it.

  • Rebecca

    It’ll probably be somewhere in the high 2s…OUAT audience doesn’t necessarily watch football. And I think Regina will come face to face with her evil mom tonight, so viewers might know that from the previews/ads and tune in.

  • CBSviewer

    2.5 for OUAT and 1.8 for Revenge.

  • danny94

    another OUAT poll, Lets have a REVENGE poll for a change.

  • ron

    OUAT will eb fine my guess is that it will get a 2.8 to 3.0, my problem is revenge every week is falling down and tonigth i guees will be the same :s

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Seriously,I hate ABC.

    They are doing the same mistake again by airing original episodes against football and awards shows like they did with Desperate Housewives in past seasons.It hurts the shows and they know about it.Why a network make their own shows suffer?That makes no sense to me.ABC is losing more viewers until the end of this season and will be 4th in adults and viewers behind CBS,NBC and FOX.
    ABC execs are dumb.

  • DW

    2.4-2.5 . or unless people are like me and dont really care for three out of the four teams.

  • AA

    Revenge will go below 2.0

  • Glue

    I dont want Revenge to dip :/. I hope it doesn’t though :(. 2.0 is low enough and a 1.9 would be a SERIES low… (Right?) ABC Hurt it by moving it to Sundays against The Walking Dead, Football, Family Guy (Which does fairly well) And Downtown (?) Abbey. -.-

  • American

    ABC is crazy for for airing originals today. CBS didn’t even air TBBT on Amer. Idol’s Thurs. premiere!

  • johnny

    revenge and once will do fine they both went up against sunday night football already and last week the reason that they both droped was because of the golden globes the audience for these two shows does not really care about the football games anyway

    once upon a time 3.1

    revenge 2.5

  • John A

    Why all the fan excuse bingo with Revenge lately? TWD isnt even on and Revenge was in mid 2.s when aired against. The show is unwatchable right now with crap storys. I was a big fan but lately im not. But i hope it isnt axed this year it will probably improve the wrigters and ABC will fix it.

  • Joseph

    “Once Upon A Time” does have a loyal viewership, so I think it’s 18-49 rating will be around 1.2 to 1.3.

    Had it aired tonight from 10 to 11 P.M. Eastern time, “Once Upon A Time” would have probably gotten a 3 in the 18-49 demo.

    ABC will want to repeat the episode sometime later this week.

    LMAO, not as low as i thought though. ;)
