It was a very positive start for Revolution. It retained most of the viewers from lead-in The Voice and most watched the entire episode. NBC released the first episode online earlier this month so some people may have watched that and not tuned in to see it on television.

Compared to last year’s timeslot occupant (The Playboy Club), NBC was up by 156% in the demo and 132% in total 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 like the Revolution TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

It’s too family friendly for me really. It will get cancelled

Whiny kids, whiny uncle. Ridiculous premise, like we can magically store electrical reactions and turn it off at will. And turn it back on with a pendant. There needs to be some truth to science to be science fiction. I’d rather see a story of people coping in this new world then watch the Whiny’s. I would have left the kid to her own by now.


william gordon October 5, 2012 at 8:15 am

SCIENCE…used in fiction (sci-fi) this show just makes up rubbish and expects people with at least some kind of IQ to believe it. (doesnt happen)
whats wrong with diesel engines, harnessed to machinery…voila.
we are expected to believe we all turn into 18th century serfs because the lights went out…lol
If this even survives a season it goes to show, we ARE, all doomed

Restart SGU and give us some decent entertainment


Craig October 16, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Why are people trying to pigeon hole this show as Sci Fi? This show can fit in the same genre as Lost or other shows that are based more than science. If you enjoyed Lost or Alcatraz, then there is no reason to not like this show unless you just don’t like it.


Janet October 4, 2012 at 6:49 pm

I read another article that described Revolution’s ratings in terms of live views and DVR recordings, and it seems like the show is doing pretty well in both categories. I’m in the DVR viewership, as I prefer to watch TV on my own time.


Debi October 3, 2012 at 1:45 pm

What a breath of fresh air from “reality” TV!
Keep it…Renew it…Love it!…


George Sheldon October 3, 2012 at 6:40 am

I have been in the broadcasting business for 28 years and have seen good show come and go. JJ Abrams had a hit with Alcatraz but FOX did not think so. I think this show is a hit and will survive as it is up against Hawaii-Five-O which can be recorded on the DVR and watched later. I say KEEP IT as I am hooked. I think we have something that replace LOST.


Matt October 2, 2012 at 11:25 pm

Keep it I am hooked on it so far amazing show I think it will be a hit


Peter October 2, 2012 at 9:20 pm

I don’t tink it will last. They’ve already given away who the ‘milita’ is controlled by if ‘miles’ has a change of heart than maybe it deserves a chance


Susan September 29, 2012 at 1:13 am

I’m not into physics or science but I liked this show and I hope it survives. I plan to continue watching. I recorded DWTS and The Voice and watched them later. I enjoy all 3 shows and its hard to choose.


Craig September 25, 2012 at 2:36 pm

The science is crazy, but the ratings are stellar for NBC. They might have an NBC sized hit.


Anonymous September 24, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Keep it. Shows what will happen if we let the Goverment take over.


JC September 24, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Maybe you missed the part in the pilot when it was explained that the federal government collapsed and the militias took over.


Justin September 20, 2012 at 11:10 am

Most cares have electrical systems. Which in the case of this show would be the reason they don’t function.


Anonymous September 19, 2012 at 5:14 am


1. The show infers that it is at all possible for electrons to not flow through conductors and semiconductors. This would violate probably every law of physics in accordance with band theory and metallic bonding, and all metals, let alone all matter would cease to exist.

2. It is further stipulated that internal combustion engines (cars, jets, coal burning power stations) would cease to function. This would mean that combustion reactions can no longer occur to power machinery. Again, this violates basic physics/chemistry, in that a chemical reaction can no longer occur (perhaps they ran out of oxygen)

3. If internal combustion engines cease to operate, why do firearms continue to work? Considering the two rely on the EXACT SAME PRINCIPLES. Nice pothole by the writers.

I can’t watch this show as it hurts my IQ


JC September 24, 2012 at 10:37 pm

The genre is called Science FICTION, not Science non-fiction.


cliffontheroad September 27, 2012 at 2:46 am

“infers” really should have been “implied”. Writer implied he was smart, reader infered “no so much in English.” :)


billj October 9, 2012 at 9:22 pm

Get over yourself. It’s just a show meant for entertainment. It’s not claiming to be a documentary.


Woopwoop September 19, 2012 at 4:39 am

It was awesome


Anonymous September 18, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Love it!!!!
