    Oh nooooo OUAT!!! :'(

  • jenna

    6.66 viewers for OUAT. Sounds about right.

  • josh

    sad for once the episode was the best


    goodbye goodwife and mentalist. they have had a good run. I can see elementary and possibly a final csi season on sun next yr for cbs

  • omabin

    At least Revenge didn’t adjust down. OUAT does not deserve that series low. It had its best episode since Season 1 IMO. Hopefully it rebounds when it returns.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go The Mentalist! Get that Red John! Will that story arc finally be done next Sunday? TM had the exact same viewership number as TGW?

  • JR35

    OUAT hopefully will bounce back to the 2.0+ range. Sure, it may be a lock for a fourth season, but still don’t want to see it above a 2.0.

  • fionn

    OUAT will rebound next week and week after for 3 reasons:

    1. Neverland story is finishing up soon
    2. It wont be up against Almost Human
    3. The storms in midwest meant a lot of people couldnt watch it

    @jenna Curse you for pointing that out!

  • John A

    Pity TGW didnt go up.

  • betty

    yeah Revenge! Did not adjust down.

  • Michelle

    I seriously cannot wait to find out who Red John is. This story has taken forever!

  • Feedback

    I think FOX should really consider cutting Animation Domination from Sundays. If Almost Human, can pull those numbers behind football, they should start considering putting on some live-action programming on Sunday nights after The OT.

    Move Animation Domination to Mondays or Fridays. Makes more sense than Sundays.

  • Jacquelyn

    Wow. I really expected OUAT to adjust up given all the stuff working against it that night, from Football to the storms (and being preempted in Chicago) and the new Fox show.

  • Ronak

    ABC’s drama slate (apart from Castle, GA and Scandal) is having a very poor year.

  • jose

    ouat fall because the peter pan story is soooo burring

  • julia

    i wonder Revenge will rate after the 3 week hiatus now… so sad that ABC ruins this amazing show with their scheduling


    Julia actually it might not be so bad. nbc has 2 more huge games in the next 2 weeks.

  • DenverDean

    Almost 10.0 for SNF! Wow. I expect that the Patriots/Broncos game will come close to that….


    denverdean it will be bigger, brady vs manning 2 of the all time greats. how many more times will we see that?

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    The animated shows moving to Friday is the worst idea. Family Guy and American Dad! are one of the only two programs to actually have better 18-34 than both 18-49 or 25-54. Friday would be a death sentence. Last year Family guy barely beat out the Following as Fox’s top 18-49 program in the spring without football help.

    UsIng football to occasionally jump start a drama premiere isn’t bad though
