Revenge: Season Two Ratings

ABC TV show Revenge ratingsIt looked like Revenge might be cancelled due to mediocre ratings last May. ABC gave the TV series a renewal instead, likely in part because the network’s other new dramas didn’t perform as well. Will Revenge’s ratings fall lower this season or will this nighttime soap’s numbers rise instead?

The second season of Revenge typically airs Sunday nights on ABC. The network has ordered 22 episodes. The cast includes Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Joshua Bowman, Christa B. Allen, Gabriel Mann, Nick Wechsler, Connor Paolo, and Ashley Madekwe.

Here are the TV show’s ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Revenge is going to be cancelled or renewed for season three.

Year-to-year, the season debut of Revenge was down slightly from the series premiere, by 3% in the demo (vs a 3.3 rating) and down by 3% in viewership (vs 10.02 million). These were the highest numbers since last year’s premiere. A very positive start.


Reference point: The 2011-12 season averaged a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.82 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Please don’t cancel Revenge. I never fail to watch Revenge episode after episode. I was so shocked by the news it will be canceled. Are you sure the reported rating is accurate?
    It is unbelievable. The show is intelligent and the actors are great. Revenge is well produced and first class. Please do not cancel! I would like to see it continue to the 5th season and beyond.
    Thank you.

    I love Revenge. I hope it doesn’t get cancelled. Wasn’t aware of the show until recently. I bought the season pass on utube. I will very disappointed if it gets cancelled. I have been binge watching seasons 1 thru four so I will be up to date when it comes back in March.

    I get up at 500 am Sunday -Thursday for work and let me tell you I drag a bit on Monday and Thursdays because the only 2 shows I watch are on late. Suanday night it’s Revenge and Wednesday nights it’s Nashville.
    I do DRV both shows but I’m so excited to get to watch them I stay up anyway and then watch them back on my days off again to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I will be heartbroken if they cancel one or both of these shows. I do have to say though I do get disappointed as a few of the earlier comments stated about them being on again off again and wish they would leave them be.
    I love Revenge and although I was first rooting for Jack and Emily to get back together, I have to say Aden is the one who I would like to see Emily with now. They are so right for each other. I can only hope to get a few more seasons to see them together, with a family and happy.
    Please don’t cancel it!
