'Revolution' fall finale ratings tie series low

Posted on


It’s been a rough transition to Wednesday nights this season for NBC’s Revolution. Losing its Voice lead-in after being moved off Mondays to newcomer The Blacklist, Revolution has had a very modest second season. The only upside is the show’s ratings has been pretty steady, and avoided dipping into outright unacceptable numbers. Still, it would have been nice to see last night’s fall finale perk up. But the hour had 5.2 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49, down 7 percent from last week to tie it’s series low. For more, check out Sandra Gonzalez’s interview with Revolution‘s showrunner about the finale and what’s to come.

Revolution wasn’t the only show to decline last night. As we start to edge toward the Thanksgiving holiday, we’ll be seeing plenty of drops — ABC’s The Middle, Back in the Game and Modern Family all hit season lows, though Nashville was up a bit. CBS’ lineup was roughly steady, except CSI climbed 11 percent. Fox’s X Factor was down 6 percent. The CW’s Arrow dropped, while Tomorrow People held steady. Your chart:
