The next set of Live Plus Same Day data from Nielsen (which includes total viewers) will not be available until Thursday. But based on the metered markets to-date in week two (through Tuesday, Jan. 31), critically panned new ABC daytime talker The Revolution has sunk further. Using the weighted household averages, the Monday and Tuesday telecasts of The Revolution this week is averaging a mere 1.3 rating/4 share in the 56-metered markets. Compared to the week one average (1.5/ 5, Jan. 23-27), this is a loss of 13 percent.
Keep in mind that the week one total viewer average for The Revolution was already a subpar 1.68 million viewers (which was off by 37 percent from One Life to Live one year earlier). So, unless there is an uptick, week two will be lower.
This week to-date, The Revolution is down by 28 percent from the lead-in average (1.8/ 6), and 43 percent from the time period average in January 2011 (2.3/ 6). Next up at TVMI: the week two total viewer results for The Revolution.
