    Great for OUAT.

  • WN

    I’m glad The Mentalist was adjusted up. It was an excellent episode

  • Dan S

    Wrong direction to go for Red Widow but better for OUAT. I think The Mentalist can squeeze out a renewal for at least 1 more season.

  • samurai99

    A small part of me wanted Revenge to adjust down just for the Schadenfreude. Does that make me a bad person?

    Good for the Mentalist. It should get one more season before ending.

  • Clarke

    SO glad OUAT went up, despite Daylight Savings. Last sunday’s episode was amazingly dark and dramatic – loved it.

  • Lee

    Good for Mentalist

    surely Its about time CBS considered Flipping the Good Wife and The Mentalist, The Mentalist almost every week it seems gets better numbers then The Good Wife

  • JR35

    Ohhhh- nice surprise to see OUAT adjusted up (and it wasn’t an overrun- I believe Revenge was, though).

  • greysfan

    Great to see Revenge back at 2.0 and hopefully it can build back up again. ABC needs to learn a thing or 2 about scheduling though.

    Yay for Once too. 2.3 is going in the right direction. Like i said, stupid scheduling from ABC has hurt one of its good shows. Stop being idiots ABC.

    As for Red Widow, that sucks. I like the show and see premise in it. The ending felt like it was just the beginning. Guess another potentially good show will face the axe. ABC need to invest in something new and fresh because lately everything new they are popping out is crumbling.

  • Fred

    Go OUAT!! Fantastic episode focusing on the best characters.
    This show is back on track. Lets hope the ratings continue upwards now.

  • greysfan


  • Matt

    Glad to see Once go up to a 2.3, even if it is only a slight improvement. Going up at all is actually impressive, given DST’s normal effect on ratings.

  • Tommy

    666 Park Avenue needs to replace Red Widow. Even 666 didn’t go that low and actually had potential to be a fantastic series.

  • Alex

    I have to ask – why are those first numbers reported when they almost always end up being inaccurate? When the initial Sunday numbers were reported you had people talking about OUAT being a flop and headed for cancellation, but now they’ve been adjusted up, all is right with the world apparently. Why bother with those first numbers of they’re always wrong? As far as I can see all it serves to do is create negative word of mouth for shows (how many people potentially read the first article, said “That’s it, it’s done” and stopped watching OUAT or Revenge or what-have-you?). Pointless if you ask me. Wait till Tuesday (or whenever) and report the real numbers.

  • David Howell

    A 2.0 in DST should seal Revenge’s third (and by implication fourth?) season. I genuinely wondered at one point, but I guess it’s a show that can bounce back once in a while despite being a serial.

    Mentalist has too many shows below it to be in real danger, especially as its leadin is one of them. I think it’ll quietly occupy Sunday 10/9c for as long as WB will subsidise it for syndie dollars.

    Red Widow… Ow.

    I can’t remember Family Guy beating Simpsons by a half-point before…

  • Ellie

    So glad OUAT went up, even if it was only a slight improvement. It’d been in a creative slump since it returned from its mid-season hiatus, but this Sunday’s episode was arguably the show’s best yet. Love the direction it’s going now.

  • Mark Wood


    On the top 25 it has TAR with a 2.4, not a 2.3. Which is correct!

  • Ryan Schwartz

    ABC should just accept Sundays at 10 aren’t working this season and use the slot from now throughout May or June to burn off shows. After RED WIDOW, 666 Park Avenue. After that, back-to-back APARTMENT 23. Really couldn’t hurt. I imagine SHARK TANK will be filling a lot of encore holes this summer (e.g. Sundays at 10, Tuesdays at 10, etc.)

  • Steve

    If OUaT and Revenge can just sustain these numbers till the end of the season, I’ll be happy. With Red Widow, Zero Hour, Body of Proof, Private Practice, Last Resort and 666 Park Ave all having bit the dust or soon to be headed out, there’s PLENTY of room between them and the cancellation bear.

  • Danie

    Good The Mentalist was adjusted up. “There will be blood” was one of the best episodes of the season!

    I really think the show can get to 1.9 again.
