Update: The stability in the overnights transferred to the fast national ratings.
Though it fell slightly to 3.42 million viewers, ABC’s “Betrayal” kept pace with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” kicked off the night with a 1.4 rating and 6.12 million viewers. ABC’s deflated Sunday leader “Once Upon a Time” followed with a 2.2 and 7.00 million, while “Revenge” delivered another weak 1.5 with 5.65 million.
Unlike last week, this Sunday’s episode of “Betrayal” made no ratings gains over the previous episode.
But unlike the series’ second and third episodes, it avoided a downward slide.
This weekend’s edition of “Betrayal,” the show’s fifth, matched last week’s 2.4 overnight metered market rating. While it is possible the performance in the adults 18-49 demo will differ slightly from last week’s number, the difference should not be significant.
There is certainly a positive in ratings stability, but given the low level at which “Betrayal” has found steady ground, the news ultimately remains bleak.
TV Media Insights added that “Revenge,” which leads into “Betrayal,” fell from last week’s overnight number to a 3.9. Its lead-in “Once Upon a Time” was up slightly to a 4.5, while 7PM opener “America’s Funniest Home Videos” drew a 3.3.
