    How much longer before Betrayal is gone? Those numbers are HIDEOUS.

  • john

    Revenge at 1.6 had less than 1/5 of Walking Dead’s 8.2.

  • brian

    Bear: Where’s a Sunday Night Snack? I’m starving!
    ABC: We got one, it’s called Betrayal.
    Bear: Thanks for the food, ABC.

  • Bad Wolf

    The Good Wife can’t catch a break. I’m fully prepared to see it end this season (just like Alias, Ghost Whisperer and Brothers & Sisters, all among my all-time favorites and all canceled after their 5th season). The only thing I fear now is : will CBS maintain a full season order ?


    Nice to see TAR & OUAT adjusted up.

    Down another notch for Revenge? Uh-OH!

  • j

    Well…Revenge did beat Good Wife, and 60 Mins.

  • BBFan

    TWD may have done some damage to 9pm but it seems the NFL on NBC & NFL + ALCS on FOX did more. The BoSox have a lg natuional following. The sports have more in common with the viewers of those 9pm shows than TWD does.

    ABC was dumb to go Wonderland at 8pm Thu. Spin-offs rarely work that far apart. They would have been better off moving it to Tuesday after Marvel or directly after Neverland. It’s premiere was vs Bears vs Giants so I think it’s C3 could prove much better & I see it on the bubble as opposed to likely canceled. I think ABC will try to move it before it gets the ax.

  • Revenger

    Revenge needs to move NOW. Switch with Nashville, or
    9 wonderland

    8 Grey’s
    9 Scandal
    10 Revenge

  • Brandy

    Thankfully Once adjusted up.

  • John A

    Terrible for Revenge and TGW.

  • somebody85

    And Revenge is awful again. Maybe its just that TWD is back but I don’t know how anyone could have enjoyed this weeks episode. Same smug conversations between Victoria and Conrad that have been going on since the show started. A party is thrown nearly every episode with this one leading to oooO Victorias bankrupt, what a revelation! Like cmon and who couldn’t guess the twist at the end?

    And who couldn’t guess that the show still doesn’t have the balls to kill off any of its major characters. It just goes around in circles and circles. I don’t really care who shoots Emily. I don’t think she has chemistry with any of the 3 male leads and that’s what they are going to push next week…so yeah, I’m probably going to stop watching for awhile just like I did last year. Possibly for good.

    The first 3 episodes were decent but this one proves this season is going to be nothing new.

  • Samunto

    At this point Revenge would probably do better Tuesdays at 10. I mean it’ll only get worse at that slot. It’s fall and the show it already at 1.6

  • tv_viewer

    I underestimated The Walking Dead’s season 4 premiere ratings. However I did predict that Sunday Night Football would still beat it and that Revenge would get a 1.6 rating for its third episode of the season.

    I do question ABC’s strategy for the first 3 weeks of the season. The CW had the wisdom to air the The Original’s pilot after The Vampire Diaries before moving new episodes to Tuesday for the rest of the season. ABC could have delayed Revenge’s premiere by one week and aired Wonderland at Sunday 9 pm for one episode before moving it to Thursdays. The reason that ABC didn’t do this may be that ABC (and the producers of Wonderland) knew Wonderland was only a one season show and only hoped for ratings in the vicinity of what Body of Proof did last spring.

  • JR35

    Perhaps TWD brat football in the 9-10 period?

    Glad OUAT adjusted up.

  • Robert

    @Bad Wolf

    I could see them wrapping this up as the final season. It’s such an exciting season though, so I’d love to see how next season turns out. (I’m trying not to spoil anything for anyone that has missed some eps). But if CBS told the showrunners early enough (like now) that the show was cancelled, I could see it getting a fitting ending.

  • tv#1

    Poor Revenge. But a fourth season still seems possible because of syndication. If it drops into the low 1’s though I don’t know if syndication can even save it. Hopefully, it doesn’t rate any lower than a 1.4. Also, my guess is ABC moves it to the 10pm Sunday time slot next season and launches a new drama at 9.

  • Mark Wilkins

    Damn that’s a lot of males 18-49 watching TV last night, it’s amazing how close Football and TWD are in the ratings.

  • Scandalicious

    Happy for Once but sad for Revenge. Betrayal is just sad. Is it to late to put Betrayal where Wonderland is, push Revenge back an hour and putt Wonderland where Revenge is? Wishful thinking…

  • Ram510

    Good for OUAT! I wonder what ABC will do about Betrayal

    CBS needs to announce that this is Good Wife’s final season
