The Sunday 9/8c berth of ABC starring Emily Van Camp as the vindictive Emily Thorne has been performing with mediocre ratings on its current season. After starting out strong during the season 2 premiere, the ABC sudser marked a drastic low in week two -- posting a -19% change in ratings with a total of 8.36 million viewers.
Early this season, Revenge has been receiving implausible reviews by TV critics and fans. This was particularly because of the nebulous The Initiative storyline which heightened its involvement around the characters as the season progressed. During its season 2 episode 13 airing, Revenge dipped into a series low, garnering 5.20 million of total viewers and a 1.4 ratings on the 18-49 demo.
However, the ABC drama managed to rebound as week 14 drew 5.99 million viewers (+15% change) and a 1.8 rating in the same demo.
Revenge season 2 has been vacillating from weak to average numbers under the ratings board. If the show can manage to revive their mojo, it may still stand a chance for 'a sure thing' renewal. But for now, the show remains under the list of 'likely to be renewed'.
