ABC was up by 67% in the timeslot when compared year-to-year to an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. It was up by a whopping 135%, when compared to last week’s installment of Makeover in the same timeslot. It was a very good showing for the network right out of the gate.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

number 1 show….this tv show has hit the top of my list. theres many more lovable fairytale characters that could be used. the show must come back so we can see what happen to Mr. Gold b.k.a Rumpelstiltskin. If it were to end right here it just wouldn’t be right. let the show continue.

This is a very well written script TV show, it keeps you glued to the screen. In the early season it draged just a bit, but now that the key is opened, there are countless avenues to follow. With a skilled writing staff this series has unlimited possibilities. Think “Star Trek” any one? It is the right series at the right time, take it to the max.

Dude, this is my favorite show ever and I want it to have a second season. It is awesome. Theres a lot more fairytale characters that they could use. Rumpelstiltskin is evil and stuff but he is so great and he pretty much plays in all of them and Regina is like ruler of all of them so she’s pretty much in all of them too. All of them are great. I’m going to cry if it’s totally over. Like super sad. The writers would be making a huge mistake if they were to stop this show.
