Once Upon A Time March 24

Once Upon A Time's ratings seem to have settled into the sub-2.5 adults 18-49 zone. But all it takes is a little Disney magic to turn things around.  Who knows? Maybe viewers have been craving Pinocchio. And more of Neal's fiancee. Yeah, probably not. But they're in tonight's episode, "Selfless, Brave and True." Make your ratings predictions below.

    I don’t know why OUAT isn’t doing any good, it’s not up against anything fit to watch, It comes on before Revenge. I love both shows and wouldn’t watch anything else on Sunday night. People need to stop watching these dumb reality shows before they take over the world. Like that stupid honey boo boo are what ever it’s called.

  • Tony

    OUAT – 2.5
    Revenge – 2.2

  • JR35

    Another uptick, to a 2.4, would be nice. But, even a hold at 2.3 (final numbers) will be better than an additional drop.

  • NBC Fan

    Once Upon a Time-2.4
    Red Widow-1.1

    60 Minutes-1.4
    The Amazing Race-2.4
    The Good Wife-1.5
    The Mentalist-1.7

    Bob’s Burgers-1.8
    Family Guy-2.4
    American Dad-2.0

    Dateline NBC-1.2
    The Celebrity Apprentice-2.0

    I stopped watching becuase they split up Rumple and Belle it was the only appealing couple on the show all the others are a snooze fest. I was glad to see Bea finally and I like the way he is being portrayed. But really Belle and Rumple had the only chemistry on the show and the writers made a huge mistake by splitting them.

  • Reward

    OUAT: 2.2
    Revenge: 1.9

    In my fantasy:
    OUAT: 2.4
    Revenge: 2.2

  • JJ

    OUAT 2.3
    Revenge 1.9
    Red Widow 0.9

  • tv#1

    I think it is unlikely that OUAT rises out of its slump this season. It may rise a little for its season finale, but probably not by much. Hopefully, if or when it returns next Fall it is able to rebound. It would be nice to see it go back up to a 2.8 or so.

  • cimmer

    Short answer – no. I believe this is where the show has settled, at least for the rest of this season. It’s audience should hope that it sinks no lower, next season.

  • cimmer

    Its not it’s. lol

  • Melissa

    Why is this website obsessed with Once Upon a Time? Lol.

    I predict a flat 2.3.

  • Liam

    I’m gonna guess it will get a 2.4-2.5. I do think it will rise this week.
    If it doesn’t drop I will be really happy.
    I don’t know why the show hasn’t rebounded at all, this season has been really good and has been getting better over the last few weeks. Hopefully people will return to the show.

  • m&m

    I love the show , Unfortunately It’s dead after season 3

    Revenge is nowhere near to season one. Very boring (still watching though)

    The simpsons needs to go ASAP ! Haven’t laughed at it since season 18

    Family guy …. it’s not what it used to be

  • Gabe

    Probably a 2.0, which is terrible for such an awesome show. Not sure what happened and people stop watching. It lost almost half of its audience.

  • HalCapone

    Once Upon A Time = 2.9
    Revenge = 2.6
    Red Widow = 1.2

  • sarah nz

    Once Upon A Time – 2.2
    Revenge – 1.8
    Red Widow – 1.0

    I think OUAT will tick a bit upward tonight, as not every person wants to watch college basketball and The Simpsons is a rerun. Plus there is more wintry weather barrelling across the middle of the country today, thus keeping people indoors. I wouold worry more about Revenge, though, as it is going up against the season finale of The Walking Dead plus The Bible on the History Channel.

  • Ian

    2.4 I think for OUAT. And a 2.0 to 2.2 for Revenge. I think Revenge will rise because it is going back to the way it was when it first started where Emily destroys someones life! I think both shows however will go up for their finales, I think OUAT will get maybe a 2.5 at the highest if the finale is big and epic. And Revenge a 2.4 maybe a 2.3 because for big episodes like that there is always a lot of buzz and some big cliffhanger and a big plot twist. Fingers crossed for Revenge and I don’t watch OUAT since like episode 4 of season 2 but I still hope it does good!

  • tv_viewer

    My predictions:

    Once Upon A Time 2.3
    Revenge 1.7
    Red Widow 1.0
    Amazing Race 2.2

    Last year OUAT was stable at 2.9 for 3/11/2012, 3/18/2012, and 3/25/2012. I expect OUAT will be steady at 2.3 even though ABC didn’t hype tonight’s episode that much.

    There is suppose to be some “big” revelation in tonight’s episode of Revenge but Mason Treadwell isn’t one of the favorite characters of the show. The third episode after last season’s episode of Tyler being killed dropped to a 2.1 from a 2.4 for the “big reveal” episode. I expect the same drop from a 2.0 for fake Amanda’s funeral episode.

    During the first four weeks of the 2012-2013 television season Last Resort had ratings of 2.2, 1.9, 1.6, and 1.7. I predict a 1.5 – 0.5 = 1 rating for Red Widow tonight.

    Having NCAA basketball delay the Amazing Race tonight doesn’t help the show. I predict a 0.1 drop from last week.

    Not with what they just showed. And if they did, then people need to rethink this show. I liked S1 and part of S2, but the show just is losing its charm. Again, the writers failed by introducing a characters back story in the same episode in which we really just start to get to know her. Worse yet, Tamara appears to be just a plot device to eventually lead Emma and Neal to one another. Yuck.
