Perhaps the Dark One has cast a spell on Once Upon a Time's ratings. The program began the season with ratings above a 3.0 among adults 18-49, but has  declined sharply. Last week, it earned a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Can it reverse its fortunes tonight? Make your prediction below.

    How about a red widow post “/

    hope once manages to boucne back a little, i’m guessing a 2.4. Im hoping Revenge returns with decent numbers anything over a 1.7 should be ok but i would rather have it back in the two’s. Fingers Crossed

    I don’t care if it were light out in my area- I’d still be inside watching OUAT. :)

    Hopefully it doesn’t dip below a 2.0.

    No point, the show is dead anyway.

  • John A

    The biggest question is will MAX be back tomorrow. Im hoping so .

  • SJ

    Once Upon a Time – 2.0 (new series low due to DST)
    Revenge – 2.0 (DST doesn’t affect it, great word of mouth, ppl caught up on DVR over the past 3 weeks)
    Red Widow – 1.0 (deader than dead)

    @John A

    I hope he doesn’t. I’ve done a great job of ignoring him but I still feel Robert and Bill should have blocked him a long time ago. I would have.

  • American

    I voted 2.2-2.3 because of DST and general decline this half of the season. Didn’t want to, and I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t want to get too optimistic about this one.

  • Ashley

    2.4-2.5. I think the days of 3.0+ are over. It used to be enjoyable.

    I can see some scenarios for the ratings:

    Best case scenario:
    OUAT: 2.8
    Revenge: 2.4
    Red Widow: 1.7

    Probable scenario:
    OUAT: 2.2
    Revenge: 1.8-1.9
    Red Widow: 1.3

    Worst case scenario:
    OUAT: 1.9
    Revenge: 1.5
    Red Widow: 1.0

    I wish:
    OUAT: 3.4
    Revenge: 3.0
    Red Widow: 2.2

  • Rebecca

    I’m hoping Regina pulls a “Darth Vader vs. The Emperor” save and tosses Cora off a high tower (or something) tonight. We’ll see Cora’s origin story but that doesn’t mean she’ll survive. If it’s not her who dies, maybe it’ll be Hook. I miss the Pinocchio dude, too. Hoping OUAT does very well tonight…one of a handful of shows I watch LIVE (or on chase-play on DVR as soon as the kiddo goes up to bed after AFV ends). Just DON’T kill Rumple/Gold…I kinda love him.

    Once Upon A Time : 2.7% Revenge : 2.0% Red Widow : 1.5%

  • John A

    @SJ people take MAX too seriously. His posts were fun to read and the reaction was fun.

  • Nick

    Once Upon a Time: 1.8
    Revenge: 1.6
    Red Widow: 1.3

    The Amazing Race: 2.2
    The Good Wife: 1.4
    The Mentalist: 1.5

    The Simpsons: 2.1
    The Cleveland Show: 1.5
    Family Guy: 2.4
    Bob’s Burgers: 1.8

    All-Star Celebrity Apprentice (R): 0.5
    All-Star Celebrity Apprentice: 1.3

    Daylight Savings will kill this show.

  • Liam

    ONCE will rise.

  • The End


    At the very most, if they kill off Rumple, they should revive him without his dark one powers, and just have him as plain old Mr Gold. Certainly that would help with his father/son bonding, as all Bae wanted was for him to give up the magic.

    I think it will be between 2.4-2.5.

    Revenge should definitely go up after how amazing the last episode was.

    I find once boring this season. Hope revenge does good.
