Barring a downward adjustment in the final ratings report, this week’s edition of “Secrets and Lies” was the top-rated episode yet in adults 18-49.
Per fast national data, Sunday’s episode drew a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating with 5.75 million viewers. While the viewership average trails those of the first three episodes (across two weeks), the rating represents a new high point for the freshman ABC drama.
It also represented the first night on which “Secrets” tied flagship lead-in “Once Upon a Time” in the demo. It was the second consecutive night on which the former bested the latter in viewership.
Sunday’s “Once” drew a 1.7 rating with 5.13 million viewers. The performance is nearly on par with that of last week’s episode. Per last week’s final data, the 4/19 “Once” drew a 1.7 with 5.12 million viewers.
That night’s “Secrets” scored a 1.5 with 5.13 million.
ABC also offered “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.5, 6.05 million) and “Revenge” (1.0, 4.51 million).
