TV Ratings Report: A Quiet Revolution

at . Comments

People may still be talking about a Revolution on NBC, but not nearly as loudly as they did a year ago.

The Revolution Season 2 premiere, in the drama's first Wednesday evening airing, only garnered a total of 6.8 million viewers last night, along with a 1.8 rating among 18-49-year olds. Those figures represent significant drops from last September's series opener, which scored 11.7 million and a 4.1, respectively.
