ABC doesn't generally waste anytime before yanking primetime ratings disasters, like recently-gutted sitcom Work It, off the air. I wonder how long the Mouse House will be too proud to admit they made a huge mistake in cancelling One Life to Live for The Revolution? According to TV Media Insights, The Revolution is only averaging a 1.3/4 share so far this week.
Unless the ratings improve, the talk show/lifestyle transformation cluster fudge will average even lower than the disastrous averages it pulled in for the week of Jan. 23-27, says TVMI's editor Marc Berman:
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 losing 28 percent of The Chew's lead-in audience, and is down a whopping 43 percent from One Life to Live in the same timeslot in 2011.
