Last night ABC unveiled their first new TV show of the fall season, Revenge. The network isn’t in bad shape overall but is certainly in need of some new hit shows. So far, it looks like Revenge might be able to help.
In its 10pm timeslot, the new TV series attracted a 3.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.15 million viewers (per the fast affiliate numbers). That was enough for Revenge to win its slot in the all-important demographic. The season premiere of CSI (now starring Ted Danson) was the the winner when it came to total viewership.
This was a positive beginning for Revenge but we’ll have to wait until we see the final national numbers, the 15-minute breakdowns, and to see how well it performs next week. Last night’s premiere had a huge lead-in from Modern Family (a 6.0 in the demo and 14.29 million) and next week’s episode won’t have that benefit.
What do you think? Did you watch Revenge last night? What did you think? What’s your gut instinct? Should the new series continue or do you think it’ll be cancelled after one season?
