Ratings: ABC’s “Quantico” Holds Steady Following Two-Hour “Once Upon A Time”

The second hour of Sunday’s extended “Once Upon A Time” performed significantly better than usual 9PM timeslot occupant “Blood & Oil.”

Despite that improved lead-in, “Quantico” did not post an uptick in adults 18-49. It actually slipped in total viewership.

Per fast national data, Sunday’s “Quantico” drew a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating and 4.224 million total viewers. Its “Once Upon A Time” lead-in drew a 1.6 with 4.572 million total viewers in the 9PM hour (and a 1.6 with 5.038 million from 8-9PM).

Last week’s “Quantico,” which led out of the aforementioned, low-rated “Blood & Oil” (0.8, 3.404 million) drew a 1.3 with 4.380 million.

While “Quantico” has become an unremarkable live+same-day ratings performer, it has been receiving a significant lift from time-shifted viewership.

— ABC opened its night with “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.9, 5.319 million).
