revolution season 1 ScoopRevolution: Scoop on the power outage



Here’s some scoop on Revolution from Kristin Dos Santos’ Spoiler Chat Daily for Thursday 9/27/12.



I’m loving Revolution…although I have to keep fighting the urge to blurt out “Holy Cow! Check out Bella’s Dad totally kicking ass!” What are its chances for sticking around long enough for us to find out why the power went out?

We’re loving it too, KT, which is why it pleases us to share with you that Revolution has been kicking ass in the TV ratings just like its resident anti-hero Miles. Eric Kripke’s new show landed 9.3 million viewers and was number one in the very important adults18-49 demo in its timeslot. As for the whole power sitch, we’re hearing the show is more interested in turning them back on, rather than finding out how they went out (which we will learn, by the way).



Revolution Ratings Note:

The pilot was a smash, viewed by over 11 million people, 11.65 million to be exact. Episode number 2, ‘Chained Heat,’ lost over two million of those viewers. 9.29 million tuned in for Revolution, 1×02. That’s not an alarming number mind you. The Pilot is usually the most watch episode of all first seasons. The real question will lie in this episode, 1×03. Revolution needs to remain over 9 million viewers per week, or at least that is what JJ Abrams and NBC will hope for. The show needs to trend above 8 million a week at least to guarantee a second season. Which, I believe will happen — tvbythenumbers also believes this show to be on the fast track to renewal. NBC has probably given up on too many highly publicized shows over the last few years to bail on Revolution after just one season. It would be too much of an embarrassment.


Revolution return next Monday, October 1, 2012 at 10pm on NBC. Episode 1×03 of Revolution is titled, ‘No Quarter.’
