Once Upon a Time had a rough day last Sunday. With competition from The Grammy Awards and the return of The Walking Dead, it plummeted to a series low 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Can Once recover this week? Make a prediction below for tonight's episode, and tell us your thoughts in the comments!

    I hope for that : Ouat 9,00 3.0 and Revenge 7,00 2.3

  • Matthew

    OUAT and Revenge should be much higher tonight. But I dont think they will get back into 3.2+ OUAT and 2.6+ Revenge till Mid-March.

    OUAT: 2.5-2.7
    Revenge: 1.9-2.2

  • Zachary19

    Revenge will get a 2.0 max! I love the show but Downton Abbey has a cliffhanger that will change the dynamic of the whole series and people will tune into to see it.

  • networkman

    @rob60990, I agree with your predictions. Once Upon a Time should rise back up to high 2’s. 2.7 or 2.8 seems about right. Revenge is capable of garnering at least a 2.0 again. I’ll say 2.1 sounds about right. And hopefully it will be able to beat The Good Wife.

  • Nick

    Once Upon a Time: 2.6
    Revenge: 1.8
    Zero Hour (R): 0.6

    The Amazing Race: 2.7
    The Good Wife: 1.7
    The Mentalist: 2.0

    The Simpsons: 2.5
    Bob’s Burgers: 1.9
    Family Guy: 2.6
    American Dad: 2.0

    It’ll bounce back, but the damage is done. Both dramas will go up until mid-March, when DST will hit OUAT hard like last year, and it will settle at 2.7-2.9 while Revenge settles at 1.8-2.0. I wonder what this means for Red Widow. Premieres at 2.1 and steadies at 1.5-1.6?


    I’m guessing 2.8

  • KJ Styles

    OUAT will do a 2.8 or so. The NBA All Star Game will take some of it’s audience. Revenge will continue to struggled against the Walking Dead. It’ll get a 2.0 at best.

  • SarahL

    I am confident that OUAT bounces back tonight.

  • Robin

    ONCE 2.6
    Revenge 1.8-9

  • Josh

    Not sure where to post this, but I watched the first episode of Red Widow online and was not impressed. The acting was mediocre and I didn’t anticipate the plot being about a Russian family involved in a drug trading scheme. I also wasn’t too thrilled with a young boy say he’s 9 going to school with a gun and aiming it at another student to get his brothers headphones back. I think this show is going to tank. It is too bad I was hoping it was going to have a good plot oh well another one bites the dust.

  • Mi

    I hope Once gets at least 2.5. As for Revenge, the big episode of last season din’t get a ratings bump so I don’t expect a bump here either. It’ll get 1.7-1.8 imo.

  • Josh

    Ouat: 3.0
    Revenge: 2.8
    Zero Hour: 1.6

    My predictions:

    Once Upon A Time 2.3
    Revenge 1.7
    Amazing Race 2.1

    Last year Once Upon A Time jumped to a 3.1 from a 3.0 when competing against the Grammys. I expect only a jump of 0.1 from 2.2. Based on the telvision trailer at the end of last week’s episode, ABC highlighted scenes of Emma and Mr. Gold running around chasing one or possibly two people in a city. That doesn’t appear very magical compared to a gigantic Jorge Garcia running around in Storybrooke.

    Last year Desperate Housewives did jump from a 1.8 against the Grammys to a 2.2. Because Desperate Housewives is stronger than Revenge, I only anticipate Revenge jumping 0.3 from last week’s 1.4.

    Because Survivor 26 premiered with only a 2.4 rating, Amazing Race 22 is likely to repeat the bad performance. Over the last 12 months, the ratings of the premieres of Survivor and the Amazing Race were:

    Survivor 24 3.1 Amazing Race 20 2.8
    Survivor 25 3.2 Amazing Race 21 2.5
    Survivor 26 2.4 Amazing Race 22 ?

    For the past two seasons (at least) Survivor has premiered with a higher rating than Amazing Race. Even with the absence of Big Brother Rachel delighting many fans, Amazing Race probably will premiere 0.3 points below Survivor 26’s premiere.

  • FringeFan

    I’m predicting that Revenge and Once Upon a Time will unfortunately hit all time series lows again.

    Once Upon A Time – 2.1
    Revenge – .9

    In all honesty with ABC’s horrendous scheduling I think the repair towards the audiences of both shows is never going to happen. OUAT will be renewed, but sequestered to a 10 PM time-slot during the week with Revenge being cancelled.

  • kbmv

    Revenge is not going above 2.0. I believe 1.8 maximum, more like 1.6.

  • SJ

    Worst case scenario: Once Upon a Time – 2.6, Revenge – 2.0

    Best case scenario: Once Upon a Time – 3.0, Revenge – 2.4

    It’ll take a while for both shows to recover after ABC so royally messed them up. But I guess by mid-April, Once will be in the 3s and Revenge in high 2s consistently. I would however ditch this ridiculous scheduling next year ASAP!

    Also, I’m majorly miffed Revenge is getting snubbed by not airing an episode the week after the Oscars. It hurts the continuity and it will have to air following a Once repeat sometime in March or April. They better put MAJOR promotion into the show during the Oscars telecast – more than they do Scandal, Red Widow or Once Upon a Time.

  • Mark

    Once Upon A Time – 2.5
    Revenge – 1.9

  • gg

    Im rooting for a 2.4 for Revenge….that’d be big from a 1.4

    But I’m expecting 2.0, then it will slowly rise probably. Same for Once.

    And I just checked…both shows are off AGAIN until March?

    Its like they WANT to kill these shows. So retarded.

  • Alan

    I’m worrying more for Revenge. The Good Wife, American Dad and Family Guy are not a huge threat, but you never know.

  • Leondre

    Revenge will probably beat The Good Wife. It’s been three weeks and the last episode only pulled a 1.5.
