Revenge: Season Two for ABC TV Series

Revenge renewed for season 2Emily Thorne has something to be happy about for a change. Revenge has been renewed for a second season by ABC.

The TV show revolves around a woman’s need for revenge on the wealthy Hamptons clan that caused the destruction of her family when she was a child. The series features the talents of Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo, Gabriel Mann, Henry Czerny, Joshua Bowman, and Nick Wechsler.

Revenge debuted back in September to a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.02 million viewers. That was a solid debut but in weeks two and three, the all-important demo dropped 18% and 11% respectively.

Over the course of the season, the ratings have fluctuated slightly but have also slowly declined. The most recent episodes have garnered about a 2.1 demo rating with roughly seven million total viewers.

Do you think Revenge's ratings will grow or shrink in season two?

Revenge’s season average is currently a 2.5 in the demo with 7.9 rating. If there were more shows in the season, that average would drop. On our ABC Ratings Report Card, those ratings are enough to give the show a “B-” grade.

Despite the network’s touting that the show’s a big success, its fate could have gone either way.

Every year, ABC renews one or two struggling freshman shows for a second season and it appears that Revenge has benefited from that tradition this year. Plus, ABC really needs new dramas and most of their other freshman candidates have been disappointments. There’s also word that the network isn’t thrilled with their current crop of hour pilots.

Will ABC’s gamble pay off? They had faith in Castle and that show become a success (and has also been renewed). Unfortunately, that’s more of the exception than the rule. Time will tell.

ABC announces their 2012-13 schedule next week so we’ll know when Revenge will return and on what night.

What do you think? Are you glad that Revenge has been renewed? Do you think the show’s audience will grow or shrink further next season? Would you suggest any changes?

    Love the show…love the setting ..sheer escapism for me….the women’s fashion sense
    is simply wonderful…thank goodness, they have renewed it.

    Then why are they selling off original set pieces like the front porch swing and Victoria’s chair on this week? Is the setting for season 2 moving off Long Island?

    I like Revenge but always wonder how those spy camera batteries could last forever. It’s like in 24, Jack Bauer could go from one place to another place in 5 minute in LA traffic. Just doesn’t make any sense….

    Im super excited that Revenge will be returning for a second season! I never really was able to watch it during the week since I work late at Dish. Good thing I always recorded it on my Hopper. The Hopper even lets me skip through commercials in primetime TV. So I get back to my show quicker. I can’t wait to see what next season brings.

    This is a show with great and convincing acting. It can be confusing at times and, therefore is not a show that is easy to follow if you miss one program. Mad Men addresses this by putting a good synopsis on computer following each program. Suggest they do the same.

    Great show~~~ Got my whole family and some friends hooked on it too. I think if the writers are smart and don’t get to “soapy” with it and stay creative keeping true to the story line I think it could go the distance. Can’t wait to see how it will roll out.

    Love this show I think it would have morn viewers if it had a 9pm slot but that’s just me. It is a different show than a lot of shows these days. I hope it continues!

    It’s a good show, don’t get me wrong, but I think the second season will be the final season, it’s too much like a miniseries, it won’t work I don’t think so anyway. Really just another reason I don’t understand why they axed brothers and sisters and now desparate housewives is ending. I never watched either, but from where I’m sitting, I can’t say I understand WTF honestly.

    I really liked the early episodes, but it has started to lag. What can they do next year without a new ensemble? The Grayson saga will be washed up by then.
