    ABC needs to be patient and needs to promote sunday line-up.. even with betrayal

  • Johno

    Abc knows how to make everything better, the writers for this post should probably have an input in the writing of some of the shows, it might improve it, but anyway, gonna love abc press

    Growing steady, growing strong. ABC, you must keep promoting your night. OUAT can eventually get to 3s and Revenge to 2s with proper promotion and schedule. I don’t know about Betrayal, it probably won’t live long enough to see good ratings, but should it get to 1.4 or something, ABC should consider giving it a shoot to see if it can grow (though it seems extremely unlikely)

  • not sorry

    yes! this ep was sooo much better than the previous one. hope more to come. abc really needs to promote ouat better and fire those dickheads who screwed s3 promotion photoshoot and keep spoil things in promos. seriously I dobt these people watch the show and don’t even realize they put in their promos so much spoilers. unforgivable. ctv doing so much better.

    ABC would probably be wise to throw in the towel on Thursdays @ 8pm and shuffle Americas Funniest Home Videos to that spot. Burn off the episodes of the Neighbors Sunday’s @ 7pm in its place.

    ABC, Please give “Betrayal” a chance, Don’t cancel, let it play out for the 13 episodes before you pull it like you did with 666 Park Ave
