Red Widow is having its two-hour premiere tonight after Once Upon a Time . Does this new drama have a chance? Once Upon a Time hasn't exactly been the Sunday powerhouse it used to be, and the first hour of the premiere has the misfortune of going up directly against The Walking Dead.  Still, Revenge has been OK in this slot, and Red Widow might attract some of the same viewers before moving to the 10PM hour next week. So what do you think? Will Red Widow premiere well tonight? Make your predictions below and tell us why in the comments!

  • Tommy

    Bring back 666 Park Avenue!

  • marcos

    2.2-2.3 I dont see this sticking around. I think it will be like Missing was last season

  • CBSviewer

    OUAT = 2.4
    Red Widow = 1.9

  • Carmen

    Could be wrong, but this feels like a show that would be better off launching i the fall.

  • Spike


    i turned it off after 15 minutes

  • NBC Fan

    Once Upon a Time-2.8
    Red Widow-2.1

    60 Minutes-1.4
    The Amazing Race-2.3
    The Good Wife-1.4
    The Mentalist-1.7

    The Cleveland Show-1.3
    The Simpsons-2.2
    Bob’s Burgers-1.8
    Family Guy-2.6
    The Cleveland Show-2.1

    Dateline NBC-1.2
    The Celebrity Apprentice-2.2

    The Walking Dead-5.8


    ABC has been promoting this show a lot…. I say 2.1

  • JulieDawn

    1.7 or maybe even lower.
    Basically every midseason show except The Following has performed badly (I refuse to use the F-word!), plus it’s against The Walking Dead. Oh and that Celebrity Apprentice starts tonight too – not my cup of tea but a lot of people seem to like it.
    I think I may have to rethink my guess down to a 1.0

  • Fred


    You must not be watching much of ABC, with the endless annoying promotional spots for Red Widow. Same situation with the now canceled Zero Hour.

  • Tom

    1.6 – 1.9 Saw the pilot. Lots of problems to fix. I anticipate the show to lose a lot of viewers after the first hour.

    BTW: I’ve completely forgotten the finer details of what’s happening on Revenge. It’s seems like the show has been on hiatus and breaks forever. So, I think I’ll just call it quits.

  • Fred


    I forgot about the Apprentice. Most likely will steal lots of viewers away from Red Window. Your very low 1.0 just may be a reality. OUCH for ABC tonight.

  • Melissa

    Due to the extensive promotion during the Academy Awards, I’ll be optimistic and say >2.5.

  • JR35

    I’ve seen spots for it on ABC, but I can’t imagine a real big turnout. If it cracks a 2.0, that would be in line with other newer shows.

    If OUAT bounces back strongly, Red Widow might have a chance, if not it might plummet, so I’ll make two predictions:

    Strong OUAT:
    OUAT: 3.0
    Red Widow: 2.2

    Middling OUAT:
    OUAT: 2.3
    Red Widow: 1.7

  • AJ

    Around 2.0

    Might drop, depends on the quality of the show

  • oktimeforplanc

    1.4 with 4.6

  • Samunto

    I think it’ll do about 1.8

    Celebrity Apprentice will probably have a very low debut. The All star editions of shows don’t do well.

  • Fred


    AGREED! 666 Park Ave was so good. Good acting, Good production values and some very creepy scenes.

    The previews for tonights OUAT look amazing!!

  • DW

    i’m going 2.0. the real post is will trump show do better in the ratings than mark cuban’s show?. i say no and that this will be the last year for the apprentice.

  • KS

    What exactly is this show about?
