ABC’s Revenge didn’t exactly return with a white-hot vengeance on Wednesday night, but in today’s ratings climate, “holding steady” gets chalked up as a big, fat win.
The freshman sudser came back from its seven-week-slash-interminable break with 7.6 million total viewers and a 2.3 rating, dipping just a tenth in the demo.
Time slot rival Law & Order: SVU (5.7 mil/1.5) meanwhile dropped 12 percent in the demo to hit a new series low. Keep Or Cut the long-running procedural? Get your vote in now!
