    Revolution is in EXTREMELY good condition right now. If they can maintain themselves for this season and possibly get renewed for 13 episodes next season (Yes, 3rd Season with only 13 episodes is possible), than the viewing for this show will increase because of Netflix.

    Netflix isn’t an amazing balm for every show.

    Only the ones that have buzz of being awesome. Rather than…terrible.

    Anyway, bad ratings as always, NBC.

    Go Revolution! Go SVU!

    Ironside gone!! ;-) :-)

    Like being steady at a 1.4 is something to be proud about.

  • Shepherd

    At least it hasn’t gone down. I still think episode 201 killed its chances. It was such a poor episode compared to the rest of S.2 so far (more akin to a S.1 episode), had they done something about that I think they could have retained more of this season’s premier numbers.

  • Wright

    This made me so happy!!! :)

    Without knowing what the L+3 numbers are for all shows, I don’t know whether Revolution’s improvement from overnight ratings to their L+3 numbers is significant or not.

    Adding 52% to their overnight numbers sounds good, and a 2.15 is a hell of a lot better than a 1.4, but is any of this really relevant to it’s chances of getting picked up? Does anyone know if this is considered a significant improvement, and do the networks really care about the L+3 numbers anyway?

  • Mike

    Gave up on that stinker after 201 and haven’t looked back.

    Granted Episode 2.1 was weak – but the show is still great – last nights episode was intense!

  • thesnowleopard

    Isn’t this like saying the Titanic’s deck chairs are perfectly steady?

  • AppleStinx

    Someone suggested in a previous post to tie up the loose ends at the end of this season if the show isn’t renewed for another. I say tie up the loose ends right now before the show implodes on its own.

  • Proemed

    The idea 4 this show sounded good. Of course they had to find a way to kill that and make it about female sword fights and tough girl beat downs. Now the show stinks and no one cares. Write a good ending and find a good replacement show.
