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.

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?

I love love love Revenge:) It’s probably my favorite show. And that’s hard for me to say bc I like so many. But Revenge is AWESOME. I will say though, I agree with a lot of other people in the fact that S2 is not as good as S1 bc they dropped the S1 format. I don’t like that they did that, but I still love the show.

Also, [SPOILER ALERT] I can’t believe one of the original 9 will be killed off during the finale. I don’t wanna lose any of them, but if I have too, I’d be ok with it being Charlotte or Declan. Just not Emily, Nolan, Jack, Daniel, Victoria, Conrad, or Ashley. Well actually I could handle ot being Ashley. It prob will be her. I’ve been. forgetting about her everytime I’ve said something about this. LOL. Shows how much she means to me.

Please don’t cancel Revenge!!! The revenge is NOT DONE YET how could you CANCEL a REVENGE??


PB April 21, 2013 at 9:32 pm

Revenge was GREAT season one. The winning format was abandoned and now it is disappointing. If Revenge is canceled I would not be surprised. Hope to see Emily VanCamp get great roles in the future.

No please don’t cancel Revenge!


Rosy April 17, 2013 at 10:41 pm

I <3 this show… Please do not cancel. If season 2 is going to be the last one, at least finish the story. Unlike other shows that once canceled, the story is never finished which is so disappointed.


James April 11, 2013 at 10:28 am

I love this show, but in all honesty this second season has been a huge disappointment. Dropping the first-season format made it less interesting, far-fetched and sometimes boring, too. I am so disappointed I wouldn’t mind if it ends up cancelled, as long as it gets a decent finale


Joyane April 8, 2013 at 4:14 pm

Revenge better not be canceled. I adore Nolan Ross, and if doesn’t see another season I will very pissed off. I still have hope that him and Emily will end up.


ViktorijaB April 8, 2013 at 2:06 pm

PLEASE, don’t take this one away from us… A lot of people love this show, it’s different and the same at one, it’s hardly predictable and worth to remember, it also needs huge closure… They can’t leave us in this uncertainty… PLEASE…


Anonymous March 28, 2013 at 8:54 pm

I love this show. I watch it all day(:


Rebecca March 27, 2013 at 9:41 pm

Know many people who love the show!


Michael March 26, 2013 at 6:48 pm

It won’t be cancelled. Revenge does well. Do not forget ‘The Walking Dead’, ‘Football’, ‘The Bible’, ‘AFC’…


MeMe March 26, 2013 at 5:35 am
