Wednesday Primetime Results:

·       “Revolution” (1.5/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) equaled its 18-49 rating of last week in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings and is within a tenth of a point of last week’s 1.6 in official nationals.  Last night’s “Revolution” improved by 15% on NBC’s time-period result for the same night last year (1.5  vs. 1.3 with comedies) and was up 34% in total viewers (5.372 million vs. 3.997 million).  Versus NBC’s slot average last season, “Revolution” is up by 5% in 18-49 (1.5 vs. 1.4, “live plus same day, non-sports”) and up 19% in total viewers (5.372 million vs. 4.509 million).

Note that in “Live Plus Three Day” ratings last week: “Revolution” added 48% or 0.75 of a point to its next-day “live plus same day” 18-49 rating (to a 2.32 in L+3 from a 1.57 in L+SD) and in total viewers, added 38% or 2.064 million persons (7.525 million vs. 5.461 million).

·       “Law & Order: SVU” (1.6/4 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall from 9-10 p.m. ET) matched the year-ago rating for its third episode of the fall (1.6 on Oct. 17, 2012) and virtually matched that telecast’s total-viewer result (6.241 million last night vs. 6.245 million last year).  From its first half-hour to its second, “SVU” grew by 13% in 18-49 rating (to a 1.7 from a 1.5) and 9% in total viewers (6.5 million vs. 6.0 million).

Note that in “Live Plus Three Day” ratings last week: “Law & Order: SVU” added 34% or 0.68 of a point to its next-day “live plus same day” 18-49 rating (to a 2.67 in L+3 from a 1.99 in L+SD) and in total viewers, added 29% or 1.993 million persons (8.845 million vs. 6.852 million).

Week two of “Ironside” (1.1/3 in adults 18-49, 5.2 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) finished within 0.2 of a point of last week’s series-premiere 1.3, pending updates, which is the smallest decline in rating point from week 1 to week 2 for any new drama on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox so far this fall.  Last night’s “Ironside” finished within 0.5 of a point of its  “SVU” lead-in, versus a 0.7 gap last week.

NBC finished the night within 0.9 of a rating point of #1 (1.4 vs. 2.3 for ABC and CBS), cutting in half a gap that stood at 1.8 rating points on the same night one year ago (1.7 vs. 3.5 for Fox on Oct. 10, 2012).

    Really reaching there.

    Really NBC? Really, you can’t spin this.

  • Setheriel

    LOL, these guys should be doing stand-up. Hilarious!

  • Michael1

    Maybe someone should inform NBC that it’s more accurate to compare this week’s preliminary estimates to last week’s final numbers. But, who am I to talk, they were within 0.9 (39.1%) of BOTH CBS AND ABC.

    ‘Revolution’ Matches Last Week’s Preliminary 1.5 Adults 18-49 Rating

    Woot! :-) ;-)

  • Wright

    Revolution deserves better ratings than this. Season 2 is a huge improvement. Hopefully it gets renewed.

  • Chris_SAdvisor

    Sure they can spin it. Of course, anyone not able to notice the discrepancies in the differential comparisons is probably not paying attention to the spin in the first place. ;)

    Rev. Prelim = 1.5, but will probably adjust down to 1.4. :|

  • THE OLD MAN

    Spin it all you want. Bottom line: NBC crushed by the competition on Wed & that may soon include The CW.

  • L

    The spin they have put on Ironside is absolutely hilarious. Clever. But hilarious.

  • k:Alex

    The worst thing about Revolution is that those characters are (almost) perfect, for example, extremely white teeth but toothpaste isn’t available.
    Only the mother, Miles and Monreau are good characters.
    Tom too, but he first must kill Charley, so the story will be more interesting.

  • rgxx

    and more importantly Revolution is ahead of Ironside —-
    this weeks episode was at its coolest by the way!

  • rgxx

    Side note: Charlie – is the coolest charachter on the show…

  • Stan

    They still believe in the show, that’s a good thing. If they didn’t post anything at all the show would be done.

  • Ashley Crawford

    Love Revolution,more people should watch,but their the ones missing out.

    Hey Dude or Dudedet
    Why so much HATE 4 the show? Why continue to watch the show if u hate it so much. Why wouldn’t NBC spin the numbers? Fox is spinning the numbers on Sleepy Hollow.

    It beat Arrow are u a fanboy or fangirl?

    Rev. Prelim = 1.5, but will probably adjust down to 1.4. really u know this because you are an advisor. The show has adjusted up last week and no adjustment in the premier. You r such a hater why watch the show?

    I thought the show would be better by killing off the fat guy, but he came back to life. Now it gets more dumb with each episode, and that fat guy is still alive…kill him.
