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’m not sure if this is considered ‘cheating’ because I just saw the Revenge episode but here it goes..

    REVENGE- 1.8

    IT WAS A HORRIBLE EPISODE. With that, yes, I will continue to watch Revenge till the bitter end and thats likely going to be sooner rather than later. Its obvious the writers don’t care one bit about what the fans want, heck, I’m sure even ABC excutives..so if I miss an episode now, OH WELL! I’m not invested in any of the characters anymore. I need to give props to the ACTRESS who plays EMILY, though. She gave a steller performance last night.

    Dream on! There’s no way Revenge is going off the air before it’s filmed 88 episodes.

    I saw the overnights. Naturally, both shows are up from last week.

    Now the overnights usually don’t really mean all that much for the actual 18-49 ratings, but I did some comparing with the previous couple of weeks and while Revenge is up, I believe the best result we’re looking at is a 2.0. But, going off how the past few weeks’ overnights have translated into 18-49, anything from 1.7-2.0 (maybe 2.1, but unlikely) is possible.

    It’s definitely an improvement. Last night’s episode was universally liked. Let’s hope that word of mouth – coupled with Oscar promotion – is enough for the show to permanently go back into the 2+, maybe even 2.5+ area…

  • Leondre

    Today we will probably see a 1.8 for Revenge and a 2.5 for Once.

    Once will be in the 2.4-3.0 range for the rest of the season and Revenge in the 1.9-2.2 range.

    Their finales could come close to their season 1 finales.

    i’m done with this show, it’s too stupid and childish i cannot carry on sorry.
    i hope Revenge goes up instead, this week’s episode was awesome.

    @RJ REV hitting 88 episodes is not magical at all. Soaps have almost zero syndication value. Heck, their value is so low that ABC doesn’t repeat them. The only reason REV gets renewed is because so many other ABC shows are bombing.

    Guys seriously fix your site! I’m not even gonna bother commenting anymore if i have to type everything five times!


    This used to be a much longer comment, but – two weeks of justifiably weak ratings don’t define a show’s future. It’s still averaging a 2.4-2.5 for the season and it’s not going anywhere.

  • DenverDean

    @SJ – I wasn’t talking about the show being cancelled. I was speaking directly about ABC keeping it alive for syndication purposes. That’s not the reason why a serial would stay on the network. And, actually, it’s more than two weeks of bad ratings. The trendline has been decided downward, but that’s due to horrible stories and writing. They lost me last night after watching every single episode. The fact that they kept at least six weak characters/actors and eliminated one who is not, just doesn’t cut it for me.

    Revenge 1.8. Yikes.

  • Leondre

    Everything except for The Amazing Race Did badly last night.
