    Haters need to accept the fact that revenge is getting renewed whether you like it or not so stop hating

  • Ray

    @SteveA Revenge is targeted at adults 18-49 & women 18-49. You do know women do watch football, and those adults 18-49 numbers were huge last night (10.0). Plus for the women that don’t their husbands may have control over the remote (football is something you typically watch live, shows like Revenge you can watch online, DVR it, watch on Hulu, the Watch ABC app, etc.)

    Cable football (and sports in general), never pulls in as huge numbers. That’s how it was before shows like Revenge, Scandal, and Grey’s Anatomy even existed. Always has been that way, always will.

  • MARTY

    steve a that’s why all the wondering about revolution and elementary if they are both renewed it means a 4th season cbs hasn’t cancelled a 2nd year drama since 2008 don’t know about nbc or abc. by the way poi which is in its 3rd yr was just sold into syndication

  • Steve A

    @Ray. Most shows on broadcast tv are targeted at the 18-49 demo. And women do watch football, but there osnt much overlap imo. Sorry. Revenge was doing badly last season after football season was over and all those women who were watching all those football games had their schedules open and still didn’t tune in.

  • diana

    I don’t why people on this site are rooting for revenge to fail

  • Ray

    @Steve A

    Revenge lost steam because (yes the writing wasn’t as good), but simply because ABC schedule Revenge against award shows left and right. Those who were watching those fell behind on Revenge and stopped watching it live. The same happened with Desperate Housewives in its final three seasons.

    We don’t know whether or not there is much of an overlap, simply because we don’t have the data to prove it. Its just an assumption.

  • Steve A

    I’m not rooting for it to fail @diana, I’m just discussing the shows prospects and its ratings. Which aren’t good, ratings that is. But I think some folks may be rooting for it to fail bc fans of the show are rooting for anothet ABC drama to fail.

  • Rodney

    @Steve A, no matter how much you or me or anyone tries to prove that revenge has tanked in terms of story or quality, none of their fans will accept it. Hence its better to just drop it

  • HB

    Still not good for Once!

  • Steve A

    @Ray. I agree. But that’s the point. No one knows for sure how much overlap there is so blaming football is a baseless excuse to me. And I’m not a hater of the show. I’ve stated several times it needs a new time slot.

  • Ray

    I agree, Desperate Housewives was able to hold its ground against the tough competition, but even in its final two seasons, it showed it was becoming more difficult, as it was just burnt out. I enjoyed the show, but am glad they ended it when they did, because it would probably be pulling in 1.8-2.0 more often than not.

    ABC should have kept Revenge Wednesdays at 10pm, it would probably at the least be leveled at a 1.8-2.3 range right now if it was there.

  • Rodney

    @Ray thank you for accepting the fact that writing for revenge’s season 2 wasn’t good. I too loved it in 1st season but lost it completely in the 2nd season, quite simply cause of the quality. And by the looks of it, it still hasn’t improved

  • M

    People are so anti-revenge… If you think quality has continued to tank then you are sadly mistaken… This season is amazing and reminds me of season 1… I’ll admit last year was a little boring but this year has improved a hundred times over… I don’t think any show can go up against Sunday night football and get much higher than a 1.7-1.8 so 1.5 is still fine… It’s in its third year so pretty much guaranteed season 4 which I think is a good amount to wrap up… Give the show a break!!!

    Which fans would those be? The 1.5 still watching, or the 1.8 who’ve stopped watching?

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Red John is a CBS scheduler!

  • Shepherd

    @Ray

    Please quit trying to compare a show in its 3rd season with one in its 8th season.

  • HalCapone

    This must be the pile on Revenge thread. I didn’t get the memo. Revenge is absolutely, positively fine in ratings and will 100% receive a renewal for next season. Sunday is a strange night during football season. Revenge consistently lands in the top 15 18-49 demo leaders with incomes $100,000 & up out of all the networks and it is the 18-34 demo leader among women on Sunday. If soapy dramas are not your thing or you just like to make dumb comments to provoke fans of the show out of boredom, go ahead.

  • Shepherd

    @Ray

    I agree, Desperate Housewives was able to hold its ground against the tough competition, but even in its final two seasons, it showed it was becoming more difficult, as it was just burnt out.

    So DH’s ratings dropped because the show was “just burnt out”, but Revenge’s ratings have dropped solely due to competition. Could it not be that Revenge has simply burnt out as well? I see you are going for the day’s first bingo.

  • Shepherd

    @Rodney

    ;-)

    lol, that was meant as a joke.

  • Ray

    @Shepherd
    Competition and being burnt out are enough to sink a once hit show down in the ratings. If we look at season two’s writing, we could say the show was burning out (which is kind of early for a show to burn out). But I would say this season is quality has improved, and maybe the ratings will start to go up in the coming weeks.

    I don’t think Revenge would ever last as long as Desperate Housewives simply because its story can’t last that long without resorting to poor quality writing. From the minute I saw the first episode of Revenge, I knew it was a show that could only last a few seasons. I hope ABC renews Revenge for a fourth and final season to wrap things up (honestly I would love a short fifth season so it can hit 100 episodes), but I’d be good with it ending at 88 episodes after four seasons.
