Revolution Group Shot May 27

Revolution's ratings declined throughout the season, with the show earning a 1.9 among adults 18-49 for the past few weeks. But now the season is over, and Revolution still has a couple of new episodes. With its only new broadcast competition coming from a 20/20 special about the British royal baby, will Revolution's ratings rebound?  Make your predictions.

    that picture annoys me because in the uk we are just on episode 8 and the pic shows the mum is still alive, so thats a spiler for me

  • k:Alex

    Must go up, last episode was very good and I don’t hope most of the characters will die now.

  • Billy Moyet

    Perhaps it was a mistake to take it off the air for so long? People have viewing habits and when a series is not around, they learn to watch other things. The idea that those viewers would automatically change again was a big assumption.

    Hopefully next season they will just run all the episodes and end in the Winter. Stop treating it like it is a cable show.

    It is unfortunate that you’ve been spoiled, but that is a picture from the episode that airs tonight in the U.S. After all, this is a site that posts new about American TV ratings. I voted a 2.1. I believe it’ll have a slight up tick since this is the penultimate episode before the finale.

    It was announced that the mother was still alive in episode 1. That episode aired back in March in the UK.

    My guess for tonight:

    How I Met Your Mother (R): 1.2
    Rules of Engagement (R): 1.0
    2 Broke Girls (R): 1.3
    Mike & Molly (R): 1.1
    Hawaii Five-0 (R): 1.1

    The Bacheloretre: 1.8
    20/20: 1.4

    Raising Hope (R): 0.7
    The Goodwin Games: 0.8
    New Girl (R): 0.8
    The Mindy Project (R): 0.6

    The Voice: 4.5
    Revolution: 2.2

    Memorial Day: 0.3

  • CBSviewer

    Ratings fell during the season but now the Show has its fanbase.

  • Danak

    Even if the competition is less, so is the viewership, so I don’t see Revolution doing above a 2.0, though since it follows a new Voice, who knows.

  • John A


  • Samunto

    I don’t expect a massive increase but a 2.0 is reasonable. Though it might do a 1.9.
    The Voice though will probably go up in total viewers, and stay stable in the demo.

  • JayJay

    Why does The Voice have to go so far into June, all the other competition shows are done by May.

  • Mumbo

    As The Voice goes, Revolution goes, I guess. Probably ~2.1 I’d say.

  • Dan S

    I voted somewhat conservatively & say 1.8-1.9 but I hope it does go higher. Just because it’s on Memorial Day & going against the season premiere of Longmire on A&E makes me a bit doubtful of it doing much better.

  • HV

    The Voice 3.6
    Revolution 2.1

  • NBC Fan

    Today is Memorial Day, so even with the lack of competition, I expect both the Voice and Revolution to be down. Last year, America’s Got Talent went from a 3.2 to a 2.8.

    The Bachelorette-2.1

    The Goodwin Games-0.4

    The Voice-3.0

  • AniMatsuri

    Oddly enough, this is one of the few days I mostly have the day off. I’ll actually be able to watch this live for a change. That said, I still think the ratings will be flat to down from last week since it is showing on a holiday.

  • DenverDean

    NBC made a huge mistake by not moving up TV and REV to late Feb/early March. Considering they disaster of Jan/Feb, I don’t get it. What is the point of airing these episodes on Mem Day and into June.

  • The End


    If you don’t like spoilers, don’t visit American websites, simple.

    Anyway, I’m going for a 2.0 for this episode.

  • Michael

    I actually expect ratings to go down across the board. Mostly everyone will be with family/friends celebrating the holiday with BBQ.

    The Voice-3.2

  • Mars

    If they killed of Charlie the show would instantly become the most watched program of all time.
