A chunk of fans broke up with ABC’s Revenge and Betrayal block Sunday night. While Once Upon a Time mostly held onto last week’s premiere ratings at 8 p.m., the high-emotion-title soaps at 9 and 10 slipped to worrisome numbers.
Revenge had 6.7 million viewers and a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49, down 17 percent from last week’s season three premiere. While new affair drama Betrayal fell 27 percent to 4 million viewers and a 1.1 rating. Sorry Revenge and Betrayal – it’s you, not them. Lucky 7 you won’t be alone for long the way Betrayal in particular is trending. But how many times can ABC run Scandal repeats?
CBS’ block was way up in the ratings – maybe. The NFL overrun jostles around the early numbers, as you can see below. It makes week-to-week comparisons inaccurate in these morning returns. On NBC, football ruled. Over on Fox, Simpsons and American Dad held steady from last week’s premieres, but Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy slipped. Full chart:
