Ratings: “Quantico” Holds Steady, “Once Upon A Time,” “Secrets and Lies” Fall

Quantico [ABC]

Whereas fellow ABC dramas “Once Upon A Time” and “Secrets and Lies” fell from their season premieres, 10PM series “Quantico” held steady in adults 18-49.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “Quantico” posted a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and 3.57 million total viewers. The demo rating mirrors that drawn by last week’s season two premiere; the viewership tally is down slightly from last week’s 3.64 million mark.

The performance is certainly not strong, but “Quantico” still deserves credit for avoiding the drop that plagues so many post-premiere episodes.

“Once Upon A Time” and “Secrets And Lies” were among those plagued by post-premiere drops. Airing at 8PM, “OUAT” drew a 1.1 rating and 3.67 million viewers. Last week’s premiere posted a 1.3 and 3.99 million.

“Secrets And Lies,” which drew a 1.0 and 4.06 million for last week’s premiere, fell to a 0.9 and 3.66 million this week.

ABC’s lineup also included 7PM veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.0, 4.76 million).
