What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, Once Upon a Time centers on Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison). Although for the first 28 years of her life, Emma believed herself an orphan, she is in fact the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince “Charming” aka David (Josh Dallas). To exact revenge on her step-daughter Snow, the Evil Queen Regina (Lana Parrilla) cast the Dark Curse. It swept up all the residents of the Enchanted Forest, stripped them of their identities, and deposited them in our world. But then, Henry Mills (Jared Gilmore) found Emma — his biological mother — and brought her to Storybrooke. As the destined Savior, she broke the curse. However, that allowed Mr. Gold aka Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) to bring magic to town. Because magic always comes with a price, Emma’s mission is not over. The series also stars Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, and Rebecca Mader.
Season Six Ratings
The sixth season of Once Upon a Time is averaging a 0.95 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.20 million viewers. Compared to season five, the show is down 31% and down 27%, respectively. Learn how Once Upon a Time stacks up against the other ABC TV shows.
Oh how the mighty have fallen. In the fall of 2011, the Once Upon a Time TV series premiere earned the best ratings for any new show debuting that season. In its first season on ABC, Once Upon a Time averaged a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 9.92 million total viewers. The ratings have been in decline ever since but season five saw a sharp dive and averaged a scant 1.37 in the demo and 4.40 million viewers.
But take heart. As creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz always say, this is a show about hope. And in this case, Once fans will find a glimmer in the rest of ABC’s lackluster slate. Despite its declining ratings, Once has been outperforming many other ABC shows and the network continues to struggle to establish new dramas. ABC boss Channing Dungey has indicated that, when the time comes, the network wants to give fans a suitable ending to this show. I suspect Once Upon a Time will be around for at least one more season.
