·       “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).
