Revenge Season 3 premiere

Comment lawyers, your voices have been heard! It  is true that the Breaking Bad Finale did not compete head-to-head with the Once Upon A Time premiere (though if you live on the West Coast and get East Coast cable feeds, like me, Talking Bad did overlap with OUAT). So let's consider the show that did compete directly with Breaking Bad, Revenge. Last week, its season premiere earned a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Now that Walter White has taken down the Neo-Nazis, will viewers focus their attention on Emily Thorne's quest for vengeance? Revenge did gain a full ratings point in Live+3 ratings, suggesting that plenty of people watched it late. So how do you think it will fare tonight?

    I can’t believe you did the Revenge poll! It’s awesome that you consider what the commenters says! Glad that we get this poll too :D
    I think Revenge will probably grow this week, but not by much:
    This week ratings: 2.5/2.6

  • Bee

    i wish it would go up, but i think it’ll go down. i’ll say a 2.0. i just hope it doesn’t go under that.

  • fox


  • Luke21

    I think it will be a 2.4 or more

  • danny94

    i doubt the show will rise although i wish it would i’m gonna guess a 2.2.

    P.S thanks for the Revenge poll :)

  • Nerdbot

    I’m going for 2.5-2.6 and yes, I’m being optimist. Now, if I am more realistic, I think it’ll get 2.1-2.2. It might have faced tough competition last week, but most shows don’t really get higher numbers than the ones they got in their season premieres and I am not sure that this will be the exception.

    I never felt like Revenge shared all that much audience with BB to begin with. The show was up so much from its spring finale, I couldn’t have seen it doing any better BB or not.

    Now, DDD is by no means a ratings power house or anything, but I do see there being a fairly large overlap between it and Revenge. I doubt it will hurt the show all that much, but any viewer that watched BB over Revenge, will easily be offset by DDD fans choosing Lifetime over Revenge.

    Don’t they have another new show airing tonight as well?? I’m not sure if it airs at 8 or 10, but if it airs at 10, Betrayal is in even more trouble than the 1.1 I predicted earlier.

  • DenverDean

    Honestly, I believe it will drop for two reasons: 1) CBS will be inflated because of a huge football game lead-in (Broncos v Cowboys) and 2) people like me that returned to REV last week were bored, which is unfortunate. I was really hoping for something more electric with all the hype.

  • ally

    Really wish that it would go up as the premiere last week was great but i dont think that revenge will benefit from no breaking bad as i doubt they share much of an audience

  • Raul

    Looks like ABC still haven’t found a hit that can surpass Desperate Houswives in the ratings on Sundays 9l8c. Revenge needs to go.

  • Shepherd


    2) people like me that returned to REV last week were bored…

    I thought everyone was saying Revenge had “regained its S.1 glory”? LOL, if what you say is true, I would love to see some spring like numbers from Revenge, if for no other reason than to see the comments tomorrow.

  • aciel

    i hope that it will go up to a 2.5 but more realistically i’m gonna say somewhere inbetween a 2.0-2.2, but hopefully if it does get like a 2.0-2.2 it could stay steady but that’s if the writing gets i believe based on it’s premiere it does have potential to be an exciting season but that’s if the writers do it right.

  • Raul

    Looks like ABC is desperate for some Housewives ratings.

  • aciel

    first of all desperate housewives got over 20 million in its first few seasons and second their both completely different shows. i think abc knew that revenge will never get the desperate housewives ratings but being in one of the most competitive timeslots revenge is doing fairly well.

  • Wade

    predicted: 2.1-2.2 (on the little bit of a pessimistic side), hope: 2.6-3.1!!!! (i am a revenge fan, so…)

  • Luke21


    Some S2 eps of revenge bet or tied some episodes of desperate housewifes final season

  • Jarrad Climpson

    Don’t listen to the haters my fellow Revengers :)

  • aciel

    that’s just some but overall abc knew that revenge’s average rating wont be better than desperate housewives average ratings on its final season

  • diana

    i think that your only in minority tons of people based on the comments on other sources have enjoyed the premiere
