Tonight's Once Upon a Time isn't just notable because its the finale, but also because the first official promo for the much-hyped Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.will be airing at some point during the broadcast. You can check out the teaser here. Could Once Upon a Time get a bump as a result? Or will those interested just wait until the promo hits the Internet? Make your ratings predictions below and tell us why in the comments!

    Up a bit for the finale, but I don’t think the promo will impact anything

  • Fake Me Out

    I think the real question is what will the ratings be for OUaT and Revenge this time next year? Is ABC going to be looking at a syndication forced 4th season for both with ratings in the low to mid 1 range?

    As more and more series stumble into a 3rd season with soft ratings on a downward trajectory, the 3rd season rule is going to be sorely tested.

    Whatever the ratings are, Revenge had an AMAZING two hour finale. I’m still breathless after watching it and that was a few hours ago.

  • Noel

    It will, a bit, my cousin just watched once upon a time waiting for the promo, he never watches ABC, and he actually enjoyed Watching Once even if he didn’t understand what was going on. So yeah it could work, I didn’t watch myself because i am way behind in Once but I am sure it was jam packed and it might have interested people.

    OUAT Finale: Lackluster.
    Revenge Finale: WHAT A WAY TO RESURRECT A SERIES! JESUS!!!!! THANK YOU for rapping up all the pointless storyline’s and shifting the focus back onto the actual Revenge, which is with the Grayson’s. THANK YOU! PS: It’s about time Emily/Amanda told him.

    Once Upon a Time finale was good, definitely setting up for a great third season. (hopefully)

    Revenge had a 2 hour finale that (in @Samuel’s words) resurrected the series! WOW. Was on the edge of my seat the whole episode, and it was probably. no scratch that, WAS the best episode of the series since the first season. That is definitely leading into an outstanding stellar third season.

    Grey’s finale looks great as well. and Scandal’s finale looks even more intense than Revenge’s finale!

    Once Upon a Time 2.6
    Revenge 2.4

    These shows should go up for their third season premieres this fall, specifically revenge with that cliffhanger!! Let’s see how Scandal can top that. Right now it’s hard to believe they can, but Shonda can and will!

    Revenge delivered the best episode bar none on broadcast tv, that was just crazyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

    i dont see it making any difference a all to the ratings, everyone knows that they will be able to watch the promo on teh internet just after its aired these days so why bother watching a show just to see it

    also alot of people are commenting on shields ratings, i think it wll do well enough but its actual success will depend on what cameos they can get in the long run because sadly people are going to see the tie to the avengers and expect the avengers

  • jj

    Will watch SHIELD promo on youtube. Once is horrible.

  • Barb

    Really, why would a VERY short promo for a new show have any effect on the ratings. Was this advertised on TV that that would occur or just noted online.

    OUAT finale was just okay.
