Not even Alice could stave off the curse of ABC shows in the 8 p.m. Thursday time slot last night, as Once Upon a Time in Wonderland debuted to very low numbers.
Only 5.7 million viewers tuned in for this spinoff, which garnered a 1.7 rating and which fell way below the opener of Last Resort a year ago (8 million/1.9).
Elsewhere, Glee's emotional tribute to Cory Monteith brought in 7.4 million viewers and 2.8 rating among 18-49-year olds, huge improvements (68 and 75 percent, respectively) over those marks from last Thursday, while NBC sitcoms are a total mess...
