    What happened to Nightline Primetime that was supposed to air on Fridays? Moving to summer?

  • Ultima

    Actually, the Once episode preceding the HHOF movie isn’t a recap, it’s a new episode.

    “D’oh! I knew that one, too.”

    Recap is the week before that… :|

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    I used to love Revenge, so I’m not a hater, it became stupid and boring when it was so refreshing at first.

  • frodo

    Hot latino, dont like it do not comment about it, plenty of people who love the show.

  • Dave

    Not that I watch but where’s Happy Endings? Isn’t that show supposed to air on Friday very soon?

  • Pavelsauce

    How Manu e

  • Pavelsauce

    How many episodes of How to Live with Your Parents were ordered?

  • Pavelsauce

    Oops, disregard the first comment I made. I accidentally hit submit comment too early.

  • Dan

    @Dave – Happy Endings isn’t on the list but with 10 episodes left airing double beginning March 29, the season finale will be April 26.

    @Pavelsauce – 13 eps have been ordered with 8 scheduled to air this season.

    2 hours season finale for Revenge! Sweet! I’ll certainly enjoy that :D

  • J sharps

    This is Malibu Countrys last episode-March 22. Be sure to watch. It may or may not be back for another season. Needs a lot of viewers tonight.

  • Imogene Cunningham

    I am believing MC will be back. It has a lot of hard core support. If the same raters rate these programs every week, how does the networks expect ratings to get better? Same raters: little difference in ratings.

  • Xavi

    Once upon a time is awesome come on oncers give it once more time :P

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Two hour Revenge finale! YES! Must be some major wrap ups of all the more pointless side issues they’ve burdened us with this season as well as a nice cliffhanger. Looking forward to it. This is another of the shows I find absolutely compelling to watch although a bit less so this season due to the excessive new characters and subplots.

  • bob

    ABC is so dumb. Seriously. We are going to have 4 weeks of Revenge off the air during April and these bozos had the freaking show on during the Oscars? Really really stupid network when it comes to scheduling.

  • Bee

    that “no more distractions” tagline for revenge is gonna be attacked by fans when they realize the show is off again for a month.

  • Ekras

    Well the proof is in the pudding…. Revenge is goin away! Woohoo! 2 hour finale = death nail. That means it’s almost guaranteed to be the SERIES finale.

  • Bill Gorman

    “Well the proof is in the pudding…. Revenge is goin away! Woohoo! 2 hour finale = death nail. That means it’s almost guaranteed to be the SERIES finale.”

    Check your medication schedule. Soon.

  • Bookworm

    Revenge gets a 2-hour finale? That is an interesting choice considering most dramas don’t do well for two hours (minus Grey with tripled Revenges rating at that point) but as they saw with Red Widow, a low show just drops lower and Revenge will be in the 1.0’s during the half hours by the second hour. It is a heavy show and very few can watch it for two hours straight.

    I might be the only one but I think this is a series finale and ABC is giving them a chance to wrap up the storyline and show. I know that some dramas used to get 2hour finales but those are fairly big ones and Grey was the only one who did so but we all know their past ratings were huge and the finale always brings in big numbers along with the first episode of the season.

    So yeah, I think Revenge might be getting sent off. I could be wrong and I’d love to hear what others think but I do find it strange to give a lower rated show a 2hour finale.

  • frodo

    Bookworm and some of the other posters in here need to get a clue, Revenge is a certain renewal or at least a very likely renewal. You would have to be delusional to think it is going anywhere. ABC has struggled a lot this season and Revenge while it is not getting the same rating as earlier this season is still doing good.

    Sunday has collapsed completely for all the network shows and Revenge is consistently second in its time slot.
    Another factor is the 21 PM Sunday time slot which is among the most competitive slots on TV.

    The Walking Dead, Downton Abby, Family Guy, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Celebrity Apprentice, Boardwalk Empire, Shameless, Shahs of Sunset, Kim and Khloe, Housewives of ……., Army Wives, The Bible, The Good Wife, NFL Football, Grammys, Golden Globes, Baseball playoffs, even the Voice has two episodes scheduled on Sunday.

    ABC knows this as it knows that next season ratings will most likely go up again(just like they did for the season 2 premiere). Revenge is currently among the biggest shows internationally, in more than 60+ markets, on Itunes it has been among the most successful shows of the past 2 seasons.

    Revenge is not going anywhere, ABC have their hands full at the moment and they need Revenge.
