How Will 'Revolution' Return Tonight? (Poll)

Revolution comes back tonight after several months on hiatus. Can it recapture its former ratings glory? It premiered to a 4.1 rating at the start of the season, but slid pretty dramatically, with its last episode earning a 2.9 back in November. The Voice is also returning tonight for its spring premiere, so it should have the benefit of a generous lead in, but a nearly 4-month hiatus could lose the interest of even the most committed viewer. So what do you think? Make your predictions below and tell us why in the comments!

    I’m guessing a 2.5 considering the terrible ratings of most of NBCs it’ll take an absolute disaster for revolution to get cancelled at this point.

    I am going with 2.7. I think saying it fell dramatically during fall is too much. It premiered to ridiculously high numbers, but it was actually somehow consistent in the low threes/ high twos afterwards…It is also hard to say this without knowing the type of numbers the voice will be pulling. And I am very interested to know how the following survives all this and how CBS comedies survive, seeing how weak they were last week. Then there is also DWTS. All in all, tomorrow it will be a very exciting day for ratings

    Whats with all this stupid talking about 4 month hiatus? Every series has a 4 month hiatus from may to september. Or do seconds last longer in winter?

    It’s been off the air so long I’m in a state of Ennui about Revolution, it’s like NBC forgot about it and found it down the back of the sofa months later!

  • Oliver

    It would make my year if The Voice and Revolution bomb tonight.

  • Dillan

    How I Met Your Mother: 3.1
    Rules of Engagement: 2.3
    2 Broke Girls: 3.0
    Mike & Molly: 2.3
    Hawaii Five-0: 2.1

    The Voice: 4.1
    Revolution: 2.9

    DWTS: 2.7
    Castle: 2.1

    The Carrie Diaries: 0.5
    Hart of Dixie (R): 0.2

  • Cyrax86

    I’ll go with a 3.0!

  • SusiN..

    I say 2.8

  • TSC’s Revenge

    It matters little what the opening numbers are. Revolution is ultimately doomed. Highly serialized dramas are fragile things. Once ratings start to drop, they rarely, if ever, make a comeback. The long break was a stupid mistake. Buh-bye, Revolution.

  • Ricky

    Hope for the best, fear for the worst. Hopefully it’ll still be able to top both Castle and H50, but as long as it stays above 2.0 I think RVN Season 2 is all but guaranteed.

  • J.G.

    The Voice- 3.9
    Revolution- 2.8

  • John A

    2.6. Not great but not terrible either.

  • Kitsune

    Best Case Scenario:

    The Voice gets a huge boost from having new coaches. Momentum builds from a strong season 3. The hype is strong. 5.5
    Revolution rides that success and capitalizes on hype to a best-since-premiere 3.6

    Worst Case Scenario:

    The Voice drops 20%, interest wanes. Too little too late for NBC. 3.3
    Revolution is a dead show walking. The four month hiatus is killer. 2.0, then a precipitous drop from there.

    I’m gonna officially predict right in the middle: 4.4 and 2.8. But I’m reasonably sure both numbers will be higher.

    Idiot NBC executives didn’t learn from CBS that when you have a new show you don’t put it on a 4 month hiatus midseason. I just wonder what Evolution fans will flood NBC executives with to force them to renew the show like we did CBS with Jericho.

  • Masterbreel

    Revolution was declining in the autumm already, I think it goes as low as 2.0 or maybe even sub 2.0

  • Wright

    3.8 I’m so excited. I’ve been waiting months for it to return. Any show by Kripke is good.

  • were123

    I’m going with 2.8, after all it has The Voice as lead in
