Revolution Delivers Second Act of Season 1
Revolution, which depicts a dystopian world without electricity and the power struggle that ensues, helped catapult NBC to the No. 1 spot this fall alongside Sunday Night Football and The Voice, giving NBC its best fall in more than nine years.
Created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and produced by J.J. Abrams (Lost), the series debuted Sept. 17 and attracted an average of 9.8 million viewers for the first three episodes. The premiere also set time-shifting records for NBC and for a debuting series on any network. According to Nielsen, the Revolution premiere grew by 1.36 ratings points from its "live plus same day" rating (4.09) to its "live plus three day" rating (5.45). Viewership throughout the show’s first season stayed strong, with its last episode on Nov. 26 averaging around 9 million viewers.
Revolution returns Monday, March 25 following the fourth season premiere of The Voice.
