    I knew OUAT is going to adjust up :D YAY

  • tom

    bye-bye revenge!!!!! Don’t let the door hit you on your way out!!!! ABC will cut their episode numbers at this rate!!!

  • Shepherd

    2.1 still seems low for OUAT this early in the season. I wonder if this was an an anomaly or the new normal.

  • John A

    Good that TGW didnt adjust down. Revenge has to start being stable now otherwise its a joke.

  • Black is Power

    Sad for TAR

  • Simon

    I’m starting to see a pattern here. That’s what, four episodes in a row now that ‘Once Upon A Time’ has adjusted up in the finals?

  • Ray

    Let me know how Scandal does against a 10.0 & 27 million viewers.

    Anyways, sorry for my childish remark. Revenge’s viewers were adjusted up, and at least that 1.5 didn’t go down, so that’s good.

  • Michael

    Yeah OUAT!

  • Esdru

    Goodbye Revenge!!!

  • josh

    Yes ! ONCE still top scripted broadcast drama of the night

  • Samuel

    Nice for OUAT.

    Revenge isn’t in any trouble yet. ABC likely expected those numbers with Revenge up against the bulk of the Football. The real test will be when the show returns after the fall hiatus. ABC will expect the show to rise to around a 1.9/2.0 average after the fall hiatus. OUAT will also likely still decline considering the current trend but will also rise after the fall hiatus.

    ABC made a decision to keep both shows in their timeslot from last season. Do I think it was a smart move? No. Does ABC now think it was a smart move? Probably not. But neither show is in danger. Once Upon A Time may stay in this time slot next season, but I will bet my life savings that they will move Revenge to a weeknight at 10pm next season like they quite obviously should have done this season.

  • TheGoodWife

    The good wife is a great show with a terrible to non existent time slot. Hopefully CBS knows its value.

  • Wright

    Good for OUAT!!!!

  • k:Alex

    Umm Once is the only strong drama on Sunday, little bit sad. (no cable shows)

  • Robert

    YAY, TGW didn’t get adjusted down (can’t believe I’m hyped about a 1.4). Hopefully, it builds on that uptick over last week, too. The next episode has a lot of buzz and I’m hoping for another rise.

  • TheTVGod

    Revenge has been amazing this season, but you are splitting the audience by pitting it against The Good Wife. Never mind cable’s competition 9:PM on Sunday.

  • somerset

    hopefully next sunday the Good Wife will beat revenge in the demo. for god sakes it should! its getting rave reviews this season.

  • Hi

    YAY The Good Wife!! :D :D :D

  • Scandalicious

    So glad OUAT got adjusted up! It deserves it. I just wish Revenge would have done the same thing…

  • jason

    next week’s ratings predictions for Revenge
    1.2 and 5.8 total viewers.
    Bye bye revenge
