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?

    Revenge has a huge fan base all over the world. Change the night and have long breaks could create good or bad results, but people are watching it online too. We all love the storyline and the actors. Please don’t cancel the show.

  2. marian frawley says

    Please please dont cancell Revenge, im watching it from Ireland, we are 7 episodes behind the states!! You are reaching a world wide audience maybe if you didnt have too many breaks inbetween shows your ratings wouldnt have dropped 3%… We love this show and wish it was on every night. Thanks.

  3. Susan says

    Best show in years…great characters, sets, clothes, plot, suspense, writers! I love it! DO NOT CANCEL!!

  4. Carol says

    Absolutely RENEW it PLEASE! Alll of my family watches it! We would LOVE to see more of Emily’s REVENGE!

  5. Sabdy says

    I have watched every single episode, both as it was aired, and on Netflix numerous times. I love this show & the only complaint I have is that it is not on often enough. I don’t know who Nielsen is polling, but apparently not anyone I know or read about. I hope the decision is based on the majority, not the minority.

  6. Ruthie says

    I could see why they have mediocre ratings. Its an excellent show they just keep messing up the line up. Have it off the air for weeks at a time. A friend of mine thought the season was over cuz it hadnt been on in a while. Way to keep a show going. Leave it where it is and quit having breaks. Otherwise keep up the good work. Awesome show and I am hooked!!!!!!

  7. Dan Ferris says

    Best show on the face of this planet. You better renew or ABC will no longer be supported in this house.

  8. Daniella says

    Nooooooo way! Don’t you guys dare do it it’s one of the few shows I watch. It’s soooo good. I’m getting sooooo tierd of you ABC canceling shows if this gets cancelled I’m going to quit trying any new shows. I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels that way. It will pay off to keep this show on in the long run. Your viewers are getting really fed up with getting into sho

  9. Peggy Miller pinney says

    Oh my gosh , Please don’t cancel Revenge. I think it should be renewed. I love unwinding to my Sunday nite Revenge. I am not a book reader, so this to me is like reading a good book. It is such a classy series. I have faith you all will do everything you can to keep it going. Keep up the awesome work. I really believe you can get a few more seasons. Thank you!

  10. says

    Love this show!! Maybe it would have better ratings if the show would air every Sunday night consistently instead of two weeks on and 3 weeks off etc.

  11. janet lombardo says

    This is the BEST SHOW by a mile on TV Sunday night (or any night) – better than the Good Wife (airing at the same time). My cousins in Ireland watch it online the next day, (since it airs on TV months later over there) so it has universal appeal. It should be renewed no ifs, ands or buts about it!!! I text with one friend while we are watching it at our respective homes and we try to guess what’s going to happen next. Love, love this show!!!!
