After three weeks of reruns, ABC is airing a Once Upon a Time tonight. After a scary, horrible week, an hour of magic and fairytales sounds great to me. But will America agree? The most recent episodes of the former powerhouse have been hovering at a 2.2-2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Can the show break its ratings curse and rise again? Make your predictions below.

  • Cyrax86

    Another 2.2 unfortunately…

  • Solelle

    2.1 not much higher and maybe a teensy bit lower this month long wait irritates people and sometimes they stop watching.

  • Liam

    2.2 – 2.3 range. I don’t think the ratings will rise after the long break. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the series hit a 2.0, due to the long break. Hopefully the ratings will rise for the last four episodes and that the finale can at least get back up t a 2.5-2.6.

  • Cory

    I’ll say a 2.0-2.1 tonight, as people will probably forget its on, and then it may rise a few tenths by the finale. Next week will be back to a 2.3-2.4

  • Bee

    worst case: 1.9
    best case: 2.4
    most likely: 2.1

    scared for revenge next week. what a shame that a powerhouse and a growing powerhouse have fallen so low.

  • Joseph

    I’m going to go a bit higher- 2.6 – hopefully people will have caught up from over the break- also, abc released a long trailer for it so hopefully it can go higher

  • The End

    Around 8 million, and a 2.3 18-49.

  • John A


  • Rumpelstiltskin

    I predict a 2.4 or 2.5.

  • Reward

    2.2 or less, unfortunately

  • TheFrenchGuy

    Tonight ratings:

    Once Upon a Time: 2.3
    Remember Sunday: 1.5

    The Amazing Race: 2.5
    The Good Wife: 1.6
    The Mentalist: 1.7

    The Simpsons (R): 1.6
    Bob’s Burgers: 1.6
    Family Guy (R): 1.8
    American Dad!: 1.7

    The Voice (R): 1.1
    All Star Celebrity Apprentice: 1.2

    2.5. I think the recap last week may help.


    3.0 ++++ the bible and walking dead ended.

  • Dan S

    I’m in the minority of this poll & predict 2.5. After being off for a month it has little new competition facing it tonight. Unless it can get its numbers up ABC most likely will move it to another night most likely Tues next season.

  • Joseph

    @rob60990 OUAT was never up against TWD and its ratings were in 2.3-2.3 region before The Bible even started

  • rob60990

    “3.0 ++++ the bible and walking dead ended.”

    The Walking Dead never aired at the same time.

  • SJ

    2.0, series low.

    It will grow in the coming weeks, though.

  • rob60990

    Joseph, you misquoted me.

  • Funeral Dinner

    I don’t watch, but it should rise since it’s major competition has finished. But a lot of people seemed bored with the show… I dunno, maybe now this season is in it’s final episodes the bored people will give it another chance.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    And Revenge has been off for a solid MONTH now…

    I expect the last four episodes to drop lower because of yet another ridiculous hiatus. The last two episodes will air on the same night, making it unlikely even the finale will achieve decent ratings as a lot of people may not watch the entire two hours.

    ABC has been doing its level best to kill Revenge.
