    Yay for the OUAT upward adjustment. Still not great compared to what it was getting, but only one other program had a higher number in the demo for the night (and it was just a tenth higher).

  • Billy

    The Mentalist builds on TGW. Why do I have a feeling CBS is going to cancel it, and renew TGW.

  • nerv

    whoa! All of FOX’s originals adjusted up!

  • forg

    OUAT steady although I wish it would go back to high 2s but it’s better than dropping

  • tv_viewer

    I accurately predicted two of the 3 scripted ABC shows (Once Upon A Time and Red Widow). I overestimated the ratings for Revenge.

  • nerv

    and look at how young those FOX animations skew. TAR and OUAT are only a tenth above TS yet viewership says differently.

  • akhil

    Revenge needs to move to 10 PM . that way it can maintain some consistency and give some room for another show to strive. it is a dead cake at 9

  • SJ

    Wait, so EVERYTHING on Fox adjusted up?! Give me a break.

    Solid for Once Upon a Time, I hope it doesn’t fall below 2.0 this season, especially when it’s leading into the HHOF movie in a couple weeks.

    Too bad for Revenge. Oh well, there’s always next week. It’s still in no danger whatsoever.

  • davor

    Why didn’t Revenge adjust up? It went from 1.8 to 1.9 at the half hour. And OUAT went from 2.3 to 2.1 and it adjusted up? How’s that possible?

    The Good Wife is a dog ready for put down.

  • gerry

    @ Billy

    Because CBS owns good wife so it has more of an investment in its future.

    I feel like TGW renewal is imminent, but I can see them renewing TM as well, even if for shortened seasons of both. (Though I’d much prefer a full final season of TGW.)

    how wasnt the walking dead up here ??



  • Brian


    Who knows and who cares! It was adjusted up and that’s great news :)

  • s0303

    @ billy, maybe cuz cbs did the same thing to csi miami last year…it built more on tgw than tm is doing now, and still got cancelled :)

  • Robsten_Fan

    Go Revenge! <3

  • John A

    TGW dont deserve renewel as the mentalist can at 10pm. I like TGW but The Mentalist deserves renewel for 1 more season.

  • John A

    I did think Revegne would adjust up too.

  • Mi

    “Why didn’t Revenge adjust up? It went from 1.8 to 1.9 at the half hour. And OUAT went from 2.3 to 2.1 and it adjusted up? How’s that possible?”
    And how do you know what the final half hour ratings were? Those numbers you’re relying on could’ve changed too in the final ratings.

    yay for OUAT being stable, hopefully it could rise again eventually..

  • John A

    Revenge will be like Fringe it will limp to syndication as next season it will be in mid 1.s or a little lower.
