ABC’s America’s Funniest Home Videos took second in the 7 o’clock hour in Adults 18-49, while ranking #1 with Women 18-49, Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11.

Once Upon a Time marked its most-watched telecast in 7 weeks and posted its highest Adult 18-49 number in 6 weeks – since 3/17/13 and 3/24/13, respectively.


From 9-10pm, Revenge increased 6% over the prior week and outdelivered the first hour of NBC’s 2-hour Celebrity Apprentice by a strong 38% in Adults 18-49.  ABC sophomore drama was up for its 2nd straight original in Adults 18-49 to equal a 2-month high – since 3/10/13.


During the 10pm hour, ABC’s Red Widow surged 29% week to week in Adults 18-49.

    I love to see them spin Red Widow’s ratings. Still, I’ll regard last Wednesday’s press release as a true classic. It’s amazing how they could spin their lowest-rated comedy premiere ever.

    I don’t get why people think the ABC press releases are so dumb. Obviously they’re not going to talk about how bad a show does, so they try to accurately boast about the positives. They do a pretty good job if you ask me.

    AA: Red Widow is a good show. Maybe you’re not intelligent enough to follow along.
