Once Upon a Time in Wonderland premieres tonight at 8PM on ABC, the dubious timeslot that where shows like Charlie's Angels, Last Resort and Zero Hour were all met with cancellation after only a few episodes. In fact ABC hasn't had a show renewed in this slot since 2009. Can Once Upon a Time in Wonderland reverse this trend? Or will Alice fall down the "death slot" rabbit hole? Make your predictions below about this freshman's fate, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

    1.9. By the standards of ABC’s zero hour, that counts as One-derland!

  • Annie

    OUATIW -2.2
    Greys Anatomy- 3.5 (tonight is episode 200)
    Scandal -3.0

  • Mark

    OUATIW – 2.7
    Grey’s Anatomy – 3.1
    Scandal – 3.5

    Glee – 2.3

    TVD – 1.2
    Reign – .8

    People do realize this is going up against tbbt? I See a 1.5 realistically. Its ceiling at maybe 1.8 if the stars align right.


    ‘Tis a puzzlement! Voted 1.5-1.9 since the previews I’ve seen have not been good & the reviews so far have been scathing. I just don’t see the 18-49 Demo sticking with this one as it jumps from Wonderland to Victorian era & back. It’s very dark & several characters are not from Wonderland & no explanation is given as to why they’re there.

    I’m hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. It may possibly have a 2.0 sampling, then go by way of Last Resort et al.

    So, NO! the curse will not be broken!

  • CBSviewer

    2.5 !

  • Tommy M.

    I think Wonderland could get a decent sampling tonight. It’s good counter programming to TBBT, and shows like seem to at least start well. The original OUAT surprised people when it premiered big, this could do the same thing.

  • Chris_SAdvisor

    That time slot is with the current competition, so it will only get a 1.9, but probably adjust up to a 2.1. ABC just has to accept anything above a 1.5 in that slot currently, or bring a premium show that does not compete for material (not comedy or fantasy). A TV adaptation of Aliens would fit nicely! ;)

    Elementary is looking weak, but hopefully tonight will bring back some of the non-procedural aspects that kept a respectable number of viewers in season one. If not, this could be heading closer to the bubble.

  • FRED

    I’m an OUAT fan, so I’m gonna be optimistic and go for a 2.5. Most OUAT fans will want to check this out and OUAT has been managing a 2.6.
    Lots of people I know watched a 21 min preview on demand and loved it. The reviews are mixed (like the original OUAT) but I have a feeling this spinoff might actually work. The producers and writers have a lot of experience (LOST, OUAT) and ABC has been promoting it to death.

  • Alecia

    I think 2.0-2.4 is a safe choice as I don’t see it going any higher than that though it can certainly go lower.

  • HalCapone

    Everyone loves the Alice in Wonderland story–even stoners. The pilot has gotten good reviews and has some decent social media buzz so I will say low to mid 3’s for those who are curiouser and curiouser about this premier episode.

    ABC had the greatest success in recent years with Ugly Betty, a family friendly show, in this infamous black hole slot so maybe–a big maybe–Alice can work some of that same family friendly magic. I also think Alice will grow in the second half hour when Big Bang ends as more people take a pass on revisiting The Millers.


    2.1 Wonderland
    2.9 Greys
    2.9 Scandal

    5.2 BBT
    2.9 The Millers
    2.7 The Crazy Ones
    2.3 Two and a half Men
    2.0 Elementary

    1.2 P&R
    0.9 WTTF
    1.2 Sean Saves the World
    1.4 MJF
    1.5 Parenthood

    1.9 X-Factor
    1.7 Glee

    1.1 Vampire Diaries
    0.8 Reign

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    How long until Community comes back opposite it on NBC?

  • were123

    Considering how the parent series has cooled off and how TBBT is a monster hit, I’m guessing 2.2 at best

  • Ronald

    OUAT Premiere with 2.6 im guessing this one will eb between 1.9 to 2.3

    The Glee episode will rise and will get a 2.3 to 2.5

  • snoot

    ABC’s Death slot and head to head with a new TBBT. It won’t be pretty for OUATIW. 1.7

  • zerg

    I vote for at least 3.0

    For the haters:

    Which New Broadcast Show Will Be Canceled First? 2011
    The Playboy Club (NBC) 20.88%
    Once Upon A Time (ABC) 12.73%
    Charlie’s Angels (ABC) 11.33%

  • Shepherd


    Is Reign even on tonight?? Schedule at the top has a TO repeat.

  • POIFanatic

    It’ll probably get 2.0-2.2

    I’m hoping that it will be a good show since the trailer intrigued me.
