After weeks of wondering just where “Revolution” was finally going to end up in the ratings, we may now have its answer after Monday night produced the show’s best episode of the season: somewhere around the 3.0 range in the 18-49 demographic. If this does happen, we have a feeling that NBC is going to be more than a little bit thrilled.
For its fourth episode Monday (which featured a rather surprising death), the show ended up posting a 3.1 rating, and kept a pretty good chunk of the massive 4.7 drawn by “The Voice.” (Who said that the show was going to drop for sure with the battle rounds?)
Unfortunately, NBC is really the only network with something great worth celebrating at the moment. The new Monday night lineup on The CW flopped, with “90210” posting a 0.5 and the final season premiere of “Gossip Girl” barely registering with a 0.4. These shows may have buzz, but they don’t have viewers. As a matter of fact, “90210” was down a good 44% from last season.
CBS’ numbers are being skewed high at the moment thanks to a football preemption, but for Fox “The Mob Doctor” surely ensured its cancellation with a 0.9 rating that is terrible for any one of the Big Four networks. (They may just keep it on until the baseball hiatus starts.) Surprisingly, “Bones” is still staying above a 2.0 next to this mess. Over on ABC things were pretty constant, and it looks as though “Dancing with the Stars” will probably remain around a 2.1 rating (which is okay, but not great) for the entirety of the season.
