    Really looking forward to Once’s return in March. :)

  • gerry

    at least revenge didn’t adjust down!

  • Simon

    Damn, wish Once Upon A Time would’ve adjusted up. Still a lock for renewal. IF the show returns in March with higher ratings and less compition would ABC consider trying it out on another night?

  • Fred

    Oh well, at least OUAT and REVENGE have pretty impressive delayed viewing #s.

  • radid

    Glad revenge was adjusted up in viewers! !!

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Wow, the FOX cartoons held their hefty numbers.

  • John A

    I thought Revenge would adjust up. Pathetic rating for it.

  • Steve A

    @Fred. Do they really? I’m not being snark I just don’t remeber seeing them on any of the top lists

  • Andrew43


    Once Upon a Time regularly features as one of ABC’s shows that gains the most in Live+7. It usually hits the low 3’s.

  • hitomi04

    OUAT pretty much did a reboot last episode with was a good thing IMO things were getting really messy, so I hope that more people catch up during the hiatus :)

  • CrimTV


    OUAT used to be able to hit low 3’s without DVR :(

  • FringeFan

    This ranks as Revenge’s 4th highest viewership of the season. Surprised it didn’t bump upwards a little considering how much hype surrounded the reveal.

  • hitomi04

    @fred OUAT usually does 3.2-3.4 with DVR numbers, I don´t know revenge but once is always on the top 20 list

  • Niallerz24

    Can not wait for ONCE to return. They gave us the best episode of the series so far. With the series sort of re-tooled now, I can wait to see what they come up with next.

    Also I hope people can catch up on what they missed and the ratings return higher, but I worry that they will return low, just like Revolution did last year and Flashforward a few years ago.

  • Andrew43


    Those were the days, when the lowest OUAT would go was a 2.6/2.7.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Sad that OUAT go that lower.It was the best episode of the series so far.

  • John

    Hopefully abc will just sell revenge to another station instead of canceling it. It would fit in nicely on TNT. A good partner show with Dallas. For those who don’t think abc will cancel a show after three seasons:
    Body of Proof
    Cougar Town
    Happy Endings

  • Brad


    As discussed hundreds of times…

    Body had 42 episodes. Barely 2 seasons worth.
    Happy endings had 57. 2.5 Seasons.
    Cougar Town was picked up by TBS. There is no word if ABC would have cancelled it had the show not been shipped around.

    Thanks for playing and losing.

  • Andrew43


    Revenge will have 66 episodes by the end of the season. Another full season will bring it to 88 episodes.

    Body of Proof was on its third season but it needed two full seasons to get to 88.
    Cougar Town and Happy Endings needed a full season AND a short final season to reach 88, if memory serves.

    So, Revenge’s situation is entirely different.

  • John

    I hope you both are right. I am a huge fan of the show. Just worried that if the ratings decline in the Sunday 10 pm death slot to like a 1.1 that they sell the show and give it a proper ending and not just arbitrarily cancel it.
