    Sad about OUAT.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Glad that ABC didn’t claim OUAT N. 1 show for the night.

  • kingstar

    The bad news is OUAT hit a series low. The worse news is that it may not be the lowest rating this season. The good news is it is still doing better than at least ten other shows on ABC and a fourth season means syndication and more money for ABC.

    @CrimTV in the Revenge promo that aired on Sunday it said “three weeks from tonight”, can you explain that?

  • MVProductions44

    Funny thing is The Mentalist and The Good Wife had the same 18-49 rating as well as the same amount of viewers…. how weird?

  • julia

    oh, and it also said “all new Sunday December 8th”

  • ron

    @marty still cruising for the egg on your face

  • Bee

    WTF. i read a tv guide article saying ABC is now airing 3 episodes of revenge in january!? one of which will be against the golden globes? and then ANOTHER break till march? ABC is an absolute nightmare. revenge is gonna go down to 1.0 this way.

  • Don

    Yep, just what I have been saying. The Mentalist adjusted up because football ended on time. Look at the Good Wife too. It is also up. AMAZING ISN’T IT?

  • John A

    Yeah Revenge is back on December 8th.

  • diana

    @bee well the good news is football will be over so considering revenge went up against football which got a 9.1 then I’m pretty sure it will at least get a 1.4 if it goes against the golden globes

  • Jack K.

    The Good Wife and Betrayal are the two best shows on Sunday nights by far!!

  • milo

    Revenge is having enough trouble with the ratings. Now ABC seems to be changing the schedule from what they originally announced, and not making it particularly clear which weeks will actually have new episodes? Yeah, *that’s* gonna help ratings.

  • Fake Me Out

    I’m a little confused. If there were a lot of stations that weren’t showing network programming Sunday night why so few adjustments? Did Nielsen already pre-remove numbers from known preemptions in the preliminaries or are those markets so small they have virtual no impact on the ratings … including Chicago?! I’m just finding it odd without some more background info on what occurred.

  • GuyAwks

    Lmao at the Good Wife fans who were trashing Revenge last week. Now that the hype is dying out I can see TGW ratings dropping back into their usual stupor.

  • It’s Me ;)

    I hope Revenge’s new episode in three weeks could boost the ratings some. Well, if they will actually SHOW the promo more, it could get the ratings up. Anyway, when Emily told Daniel that she is pregnant, do you think she is telling the truth, or lying for her plans for revenge to continue? Comment below so I can see what you guys’ think. Too, did anyone else notice on the promo for the next Revenge, Victoria was being cuffed? Does this mean Emily’s plans for revenge will succeed?

  • Ankit Dasgupta

    Revenge Need not Worry ! Revenge will be great after a 3 week break ! and will be renewed for a fourth Season !

  • Ray

    I think Emily was lying about being pregnant, she probably did that when she realized Daniel’s relationship was taking off with that other girl. The next two episodes will be awesome of Revenge, I hope ABC does great promotion for it (like promos during top shows like Scandal & Grey’s), as well as the kind of promotion they give Scandal, Goldbergs, Castle, Grey’s, etc. ABC hasn’t given Revenge much promotion for most of the season, but I hope that 1.7 and 1.5 showed ABC the show can bounce back if given the right promotion & not up against as strong competition.

    Middseason, Revenge will be pushed to 10pm with Resurrection airing at 9pm. Resurrection seems more compatible with Once Upon a Time. However if an established show like Revenge is struggling against the competition, likely a new show will too. I feel ABC should have aired Resurrection on a different night, put a strong established show at 9pm, and either put Revenge Sundays at 10pm or on a different night. Too many changes though.

    I’m sure ABC realizes they have a messy schedule, and I hope they make some major changes for the 2014-2015 season. I hope Revenge can at least maintain its numbers, so that it gets the fourth season it deserves.

    I’ve been a tough critic.. it really has been my kids & wife’s show… but I have to say I thought OUAT was terrific Sunday. Really piecing together the puzzle and building out the characters!
