  • marvin

    at least once upon a time is ok, so im happy, at least i know i will watch it until 2015 (i hope) you never know what abc could do

  • josh

    take that you once upon a time haters even with last week
    lmao at family guy quick dead it is

  • marvin

    would once be considered as a cheaply made show, even though i love it to pieces, that graphics is terrible and looks cheaply made especially in season 1

  • Owen W

    Still good for Amazing Race

  • Shepherd

    Once did good

  • Hethler

    Amazing Race finished second at 8.30pm and not on 3rd spot as depicted on the table.

  • TV Viewer

    Awesome for the Simpsons! The annual Treehouse of Horror was an instant classic. The sort of program worth taping and watching over and over again to catch all the items they put in it.
    Renewing it was a great idea.

    @josh – “lmao at family guy quick dead it is”

    It beat all the competition in its slot except football.

    yeah, the effects on ouat are a joke. and the main drawback for the show being taken seriously by me. if they stopped with the green screening of everything and used more sets that were really there it would just be a better show. it always feels like a giant notch down because you can just see that a set is 100% fake and the only thing real in there is a table. it wouldn’t be hard to set dress 1 castle to look like one then change a few things and make it a “different” castle. for as ok as the show does in the ratings and it should shell out a little more to look better and reap the rewards in return but i doubt they’ll do it.

    Yaaay OUAT!!

  • Fred

    Good for OUAT. Next week is highly anticipated (amongst OUAT fans) episode. Hope some more viewers join in.

    Btw the previews for WONDERLAND look pretty amazing. I have feeling ABC has another hit on it’s hands. Just hope it can compete on Thursday night.

    I’m not shocked. Revenge used to be good in season 1, then they decided to become lazy with their storylines and just become horrid. The acting on this show is really laughable too. It made CW dramas look Emmy worthy.

  • geoff

    Looks like BOB did awful?

  • Stan

    @Sam, it totally agree!

  • Michael

    Awesome for OUAT!

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I love that The Simpsons went up without NFL lead in!

  • Elia

    Once will get a fourth season, but I have a hard time seeing it go further than that unless Kitsis & Horowitz start listening to the legitimate criticism of the show by their fans instead of being hung up on telling “their story”. The ratings erosion has been significant and the current show no longer resembles the one most people fell in love with. Many of those people (myself included) are hanging in there in the hope it will improve, but won’t hang around forever…

  • carole

    The Mentalist keeps getting better. Good ratings for a show that started at 10:45pm.

  • John A

    At least TGW went up from last week. Yeah 1.6 is awful but still ill take it.
