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!

    Revenge was so good tonight, it’s definitely getting back on track hopefully the ratings go up for the weeks coming!!

  • Leondre


    You’re right. It was great!

  • Layton

    I think somewhere between 2.6-2.8 for OUAT. It was easily the best episode of this season and probably one of the best episodes of the show.

  • alvar

    I don’t expect them to rebound entirely in their first week.

    Once: 2.8
    Revenge: 2.0
    Zero Hour: 0.5

  • Vermillion

    I say 1.8-2.0 for Revenge, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a little lower. I will be very surprised if it’s above 2.0.

    What’s happening to Revenge is really unfair. It wouldn’t be in danger if it stayed on Wednesdays. A heavily serialized show like Revenge can’t go up against sports+award shows AND take unnecessary breaks. I can’t believe they’re taking yet [i]another[/i] break just when the show is gaining momentum.

    Rooting for it and Once tonight to pull in strong rises after last week, no thanks to ABC and their awful scheduling.

    Seriously, Revenge was outstanding tonight. Wow!

  • Noel

    I think Once will rise to a 2.7 at the very least, could be higher. Revenge I don’t really know at this point, since they are a lot of fans disappointed with the season but I would say a 2.0 at the very least.

    Both Once and Revenge were amazing tonight!

    Especially Revenge, it is completely back on track. That death was so emotional and it will definitely set Emily onto her revengenda with even more passion. Even in the promo for the next episode, Emily says “No more distractions” Is that the writers’ way of reassuring the upset fans?

    Hopefully both shows had a good boost in the ratings.

  • Stan

    I really hope it is a 2.8-3.0! Tonight’s episode was very good for once, and the next episode is when an all out war starts in the show, so the show is defiantly going to get better.

  • Stan

    @gg They are only skipping one weekend because of the Oscars.

    The episode tonight was probably the best all season. It’s too bad that ABC has scheduled the show like it has, the show is finally starting to pick up steam! The whole first season of OUAT was pretty much explaining everything, then in the beginning of the second season they started to go out of the box a little, but tonight they really went out of the box, and the next episode on March 3rd is when an all out war begins between the characters. In the preview, they even hinted at a main character getting killed. Really hope OUAT rebounds to 2.8+

  • gg


    Omg lol i just wrote the SAME EXACT thing on tvfanatic.

    That ‘distraction’ line was definitely the writers saying ”sorry, we got distracted with trying new story lines. No more distractions from now on!”

    Love it. lol!

    Im hoping for at least a 2.1 demo.

  • networkman

    Revenge was outstanding. This show really deserves more recognition. I wish it was able to garner at least 10 million viewers and remain in the high 2’s. Is Downton Abbey really that much more exciting to pull viewers from Revenge. Viewers don’t know what they are missing. Emily and Madeline give excellent performances once again.

  • David Howell

    2.4 for OUAT, 1.5 for Revenge.

    Serialized shows don’t rebound that easily. Revenge will be the surprise cancellation of the season.

  • chris23

    Once Upon A Time 2.9

    Revenge 2.4

  • frodo

    Revenge will be up, last night’s episode is getting so much buzz!!!! One of the best episodes of the series!

  • tobes

    In a way ABC is almost smart for waiting 3 weeks before airing another Revenge because that gives time for word of mouth to get around about how good the last episode was and people who left the show and even people who have never watched it can start watching and kind of be up to date!

  • Dan

    I really hope Revenge goes back to the 2s, but it probably won’t reach it this next week. Next week, maybe.

    Once Upon a Time – 2.6

    Revenge – 2.1

  • Dan

    ^Make that a 1.9 for Revenge.

  • bluejays

    2.6 or so I think. Revenge about 2.1-2.2

  • The End

    @David Howell

    Very well said that man. Nice to see more opinions not blinded by fanboyism. Only a few of us on this topic thinking objectively on this subject and sadly I think there will be a few dissapointed folk when the Sundays ratings release is out and Revenge hasn’t reached the magical 2.0+ and Once 3.0+.
