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!

    my guess is that this might premiere high and then have the usual second week dip. aiming high at 2.0, though i could see it lower..

  • TJ

    Okay, I watched the pilot and thought it was terrible. Too bad; I like some of the cast (particularly Goran Visnjic from ER), but they all need better shows. Red Widow is among the worst new series of the year.

    Seriously? It has the second-best drama lead-in on the network, minimal competition, and is right up ABC’s alley, yet you think it will be their lowest scripted premiere ever ?

    Well, if you want to talk seasonal averages, then yes, Once Upon a Time is the #2 drama on ABC. But if we look at just 2013 (like the R/C index does), Scandal is the #2 drama on ABC. Also, with Red Widow‘s 1.4, I believe it tied Zero Hour as ABC’s lowest scripted premiere ever.
