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.

What do you think? Do you still like the Revenge TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

    Man y people don’t and can’t afford cable. Then on regular tv there are too many game shows and reality show!!! That’s not tv. This show is great!!! hope it forfeit a long time. Like brothers and sisters was great

    I’ve grown addicted to this show. Love it and never miss an episode! It would probably help the ratings for the show if the station would stop putting other things in it’s time slot. It gets frustrating trying to figure out when it’s on and when it’s not. That’s happened to other shows too – and I just quit watching them cause I get tired of waiting for them to come back, or figure out where they went.

    Are they out of their minds? Why on earth would they need to cancel it? Please don’t do it man.I really love it.My heart will be broken in thousand pieces.If they cancel it,i swear i’m gonna be the one taking revenge next time!

  4. T Counce says

    Inasmuch as there is a high demand for this particular show in the UK and Australia, added to the US fan base…to not renew this series would be a shame and would definitely make me reconsider watching any future ABC offerings. (Seriously, what is the point of getting hooked on a show if they are going to stop feeding the addiction?)

  5. shannon says

    DO NOT CANCEL! This is best, well written series, yet! The talent is incredible and the story line keeps up on our toes. It would be a stupid move to cancel.

  9. Vonnie Duran says

    I don’t think revenge should be canceled I think it should be renewed. Revenge is my all time favorite tv show and most of my friends watch it. Know days because of revenge I’ve gotten into other abc tv shows and now abc is the only channel that I watch. Revenge also led me to read the count of monte cristo. If the shows canceled I’d be devastated. I think revenge should be renewed for a third season.

    It should totally be renewed. This show is epic. All shows now a days are crap. This show still interest me in a lot of ways.
