Revolution: Season Two Ratings

Revolution season two ratingsLast season, Revolution was the highest-rated show on NBC but the ratings fell throughout the season, even with The Voice as a lead-in. What will happen now that the show’s been moved to Wednesdays? Will it see a third season or will it be cancelled instead? We’ll have to wait and see.

Revolution revolves around the Matheson family and others who live in a world where there is no longer any power. The cast includes Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, JD Pardo, Stephen Collins, and Elizabeth Mitchell.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”).

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 Revolution TV series? Would you like to see it cancelled or renewed for third season?

    NO NO NO NO I loved the first season of Revolution and everything about it. This season ratings are down way lower than expected and that have completely screwed this story up and took it somewhere else!!!! I hate Charlie and her Mom they have made these character hated and the only real character I can say I like is Miles!!!!

    I think its a great show and anyone would be stupid not to watch this show amd i dont think it would be smart to cancel seems like every good show gets cancelled
    people just get cancel happy just stop taking all the good shows off the air its not very smart

    Down 6% (demo) from last week, and this is the final episode before the mid-season break. I wonder how many tuned out after the AI fiasco was said out-loud. Pendants/Boosters also turn the nanites off/on, so they should have been ‘freeing’ nanites since they were first used in Season One.
    Also with the nanites no longer eating all the electricity, why is there no power?

    Too hard to maintain an audience when they cannot maintain a plot. Show could still be cancelled by episode 11, but I now think they will let it limp along (at a reduced budget) for the second season – though it may move again to a dead-slot.

    Please do not cancel Revolution ! I love and enjoy this TV show. The cast members are superb. The producers did an excellent job of casting and creating a story that I can not stop watching. My favorite TV show of all time. I look forward each week for show. week for this show.

    They lost me with the nano-bots, though it does explain how the main characters are on the verge of death one episode and running and fighting in the next episode. About the fighting… I wish they would bring back more of the intrigue of living in a world with no power and have less fighting.

    I think it should go on for another season but i also think it should have been left on monday night instead of.moving it to wednesday i think that was a bad move

    I like this show and its characters. Billy Burke is excellent in the role as Miles Matheson an individual who defected from Monroe’s militia.
    His niece Charlie, played by Tracey Spiridakos is a convincing young woman faced with an apocalyptic situation in which she has had to learn how to survive.
    Provided Revolution keeps to its original formula and avoids the temptation of introducing incompatible drama, something that concerns me with Aaron being healed by nanites, after the entire show has been successfully following a very earthy script, it will likely remain a hit.
    There is a tendency for me anyway, to compare it with “Lost”, which I lost interest in during the later seasons because I felt that the script failed to produce any serious possibilities because its writers had misdirected themselves away from what viewers could relate. It would be a shame for Revolution to do the same.

    I like this show, but yeah…the nanites healing Aaron was just not in line with the show’s direction. I’m sick of the daughter who can’t fight, can’t survive unless she’s had life handed to her, and she’s chasing after Monroe. really? How stupid can you be?
    And the african-mexican-heck I forget his name. He was GUS on Breaking Bad. He’s getting tiresome too! He can’t act (in this part) and he fails miserably at playing a manipulator. He should have eaten a bullet in episode 1 of this season.

    Tie the two kids together, turn the power back on, and show them looking toward a bright future. then end the show on a high note.

    I hate when they start switching proven shows around..Especially when they are trying to sandwich them into a time slot with unproven shows or ones they know will probably a dog, but hope you’ll watch it because it comes on before or after the good show…I will not be manipulated like that…Now they have Revolution competing with Arrow on CW which is a proven show…Are people who were ambivalent about Revoltion going to stop watching Arrow? Doubt it….Stop fricking moving shows in to dead time slots…Stop trying to tweek something that is already working…You have a really good cast with Revolution and a great premise…Quit trying to improve it, roll with what you got and put it in a decent time slot…Like where it was before…Then maybe you’ll not lose the show.

      I so agree. Networks always take great shows and either cancel them so they can use the money to producers losers, or they move so you cannot even find them.
      I was once loyal to ABC. For 46 years I watched them. Then they decided that All My Children and One Life to Live didn’t mater to those us that watched our entire lives and now watched it with our daughters.
      Networks are a joke. No “Customer Service” there. Quick watching the SciFi channal because every time they came with a fantactic show and you got into it. They canceled.

      Networks have no respect for views companision.
      I have only watched two new shows this season. Can’t take the emotion fall of liking something to have it canceled.

    A move back will not happen. They most likely pushed it out there to die. They knew the ratings were weak, but with Kripke making so many promises to fix it (both during and after the hiatus), they wanted to give it a chance. Now we see that they are continuing with plot holes, recycled story lines, and even more magic in the nanites (how Aaron was healed). The show will be cancelled by the mid-season break if this is Eric’s idea of ‘fixed’. No time slot will fix that.

    Since NBC was silly enough to pre-announce that it was picked-up for a full 22 episode season, they had to move it so that it is not getting a boost from The Voice (lead-in). When Rev’s numbers drop far enough, the contract conditions will kick in letting NBC cancel the show without any financial penalties. The only question there is why they ever entered into such a stupid position in the first place…
