    I’m now positive ABC will switch up SUNDAYS next year as well. Can’t launch a 10pm show? Launch SHIELD (which is clearly getting a pick up) at 9pm, and slide REVENGE to 10. SHIELD gets a lead in (out of OUAT), and if its a success, REVENGE doesn’t lose a lead in in the process. Plus, if ABC renews REVENGE for a third season, it’s all but likely to receive a 4th season renewal. Very, very few shows are canceled after season 3 unless they’re nowhere near the syndication mark.

    Yay for Once!

  • forg

    Yay OUAT! I hope it will climb as the season closes. I’ll be happy with a 2.7

  • robrab14

    OUAT :) so happy

  • MichaelChickless

    Go Mentalist! I don’t think the Cancellation Bear wants any part of Red John at this point.

    And to think they once cancelled Family Guy!

  • bazza

    Fox is killing American dad and harming Bob’s Burgers just to help the Cleveland Show.

  • AA

    LOL Take that with a grain of salt, Revenge haters~

  • BigBrotherFan

    red flopow NOT EVEN 666 PARK AVE. ever got that LOW!


  • Bee

    as glad as i am for slow and steady rebounds upwards, it still pisses me off whenever i think about how badly ABC screwed over their shows. two big hits turned into two good, but nothing special hits. ARGHHH.

  • Bee

    and ABC needs to get rid of red widow ASAP and put some nashville repeats in there. they’d get 0.9-1.1 and could help the show, which could use every tenth of help.

  • DryedMangoez

    The Amazing Race was also adjusted up a tenth in the demo according to the CBS press release as well as the Weekly chart right here on TVBTN.

    So still outright #1 in the hour =]

  • Max Vrany

    @DryedMangoez, that’s the “additional processing” that happens in between the finals and the top 25.

    Nope, it was a mistake on our end. Fixed.

    Fox is killing American dad and harming Bob’s Burgers just to help the Cleveland Show.

    They’re killing the two shows that they have already renewed for next season to help the show which they still haven’t ordered more episodes for.

    Did they change the defintion of “killing”?

    I think the much more likely scenario is that they’re seeing how Bob’s Burgers performs at 9:30pm because they need to figure out how they will schedule their five animated shows next winter/spring.

  • Networkman

    Exactly Ultima, FOX is trying to figure out how they will schedule their animated shows. The Simpsons is coming up on their 25th and possibly last season. What show will take over their spot? Will Family Guy remain at the anchor position at 9pm? Bob’s Burger got the same demo and less viewers than The Cleveland Show even though it had a higher lead in.

    I normally don’t watch The Mentalist but I decided to switch over to CBS after watching Revenge. It was really entertaining. I feel CBS should renew it for one more season.

  • Tabitha

    That’s so great for The Mentalist and OUAT

  • Joseph A

    I really wanted to like Red Widow , and its not like the show did not have a great deal going for it ,

    But WTF , why do writer need to put marketing trends and demo’s 1st before a sharp script , its like they say , okay we need the following ,

    House Wife that is capable but can never really show strength that she is in charge
    Kids that all act like friggen Lemmings , its the same problem they had with TerraNova , where the kids do the most insane things even if it means going against how the character was developed ,

    Last night was another great example of bad writing ,
    Oldest son who had previously shown he was sharp and stepping up , knowingly leaves his Younger Sister and Pathetic Brother alone , and then starts to talk up about being a Mobster to a tramp that just moved down the street ?

    Really needing the teams that were part of Terra Novas, Red Widows, Revolution to create smarter young adults ,

    Revenge managed to pull a respectable 2.0 after some horrible scheduling by ABC. This season has been disappointing, but hopefully the death will set the story back in the right direction. Disappointing that Once hasn’t managed to rebound, plotwise its much better than Revenge and a big improvement on a disappointing start to season 2.

  • alvar

    To be honest, as much as I am trying to enjoy both Once Upon a Time and Revenge this season, the storylines just don’t compare to their brilliant opening seasons. January and February scheduling has hurt the ratings, but I think disappointing storylines have also played a part to some degree. If tonight’s ratings are the new standard, then Once has fallen a whole ratings point and Revenge has dropped at least half a ratings point from fall averages.

    Revenge needs to go back to focussing on the Graysons rather than the confusing initiative, and I will probably give up if the story does not return to form by the end of this season. Once is missing the element of evil that made season 1 so good, but I still enjoy watching.

  • frodo

    Good for Revenge and Once!!!

    Revenge has been amazing these past three chapters and deserves to keep going up.

    Once finally delivered a good chapter, this season has been quite the mess but its nice to see it rebounding.
