Revenge: Premiere Ratings

Revenge ratingsLast night ABC unveiled their first new TV show of the fall season, Revenge. The network isn’t in bad shape overall but is certainly in need of some new hit shows. So far, it looks like Revenge might be able to help.

In its 10pm timeslot, the new TV series attracted a 3.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.15 million viewers (per the fast affiliate numbers). That was enough for Revenge to win its slot in the all-important demographic. The season premiere of CSI (now starring Ted Danson) was the the winner when it came to total viewership.

This was a positive beginning for Revenge but we’ll have to wait until we see the final national numbers, the 15-minute breakdowns, and to see how well it performs next week. Last night’s premiere had a huge lead-in from Modern Family (a 6.0 in the demo and 14.29 million) and next week’s episode won’t have that benefit.

NOTE: Updated season ratings are available.

What do you think? Did you watch Revenge last night? What did you think? What’s your gut instinct? Should the new series continue or do you think it’ll be cancelled after one season?

    I LOVED Revenge! The best show to be on TV in a very long time. Intriguing, mysterious, edge of the seat anticipation, juicy subplots–Revenge has it all! Can’t wait to watch again. Hope I don’t miss a single episode.

    I can’t believe these quotes…”better than Modern Family” ? Really? If you feel that way you should skip Modern, seriously. I am inclined to believe the ‘loved it’s are coming from ABC employees……not a first….’watched it 15 times’? You need to get cable. I loved Stowe….15 years ago…now she looks like a surgery nightmare…the lead is one of the weakest actresses I’ve seen and the supporting women are awful. Only good one seemed to be tossed from the least she could act. The billionaire kid is the worst & I think it’s the script, not the actor. I had to watch it though just to see how terrible the ending was going to be and it was worse than i thought. purely awful television I’m ashamed of myself for watching.

      Wait a second, don’t get ahead of yourself. It does not beat modern family but I do think it is a good show. Just saying.
