Update: The Peacock was also king at 10 with its new drama Revolution (3.1/8). The apocalyptic drama — which already received a full-season pickup — beat ABC and CBS in every key demographic and is doing particularly well in the delayed viewing department. Last week, it added 1.64 ratings points in the key demo. It’s about time NBC launched a decent drama, right?
Final ratings: Viewers: 8.1 million, A18-49: 3.0
REVOLUTION 1×04 Viewers: 8.206 million, A18-49: 3.1 (it’s still number 1 show at the same time slot among 18-49)
Castle on ABC at 10 p.m. finished first with a 7.1/12 – 22 percent above competing Hawaii Five-O on CBS (5.8/10) and 37 percent above Revolution on NBC, which slipped to a series-low 5.2/ 9. But Revolution is poised for time period victory among adults 18-49, and this was still 126 percent above a repeat of failed crime solver Prime Suspect on the year-ago evening (2.3/ 4 on 10/10/11). Four-week overnight track for Revolution: 7.9/13 – 6.3/11 – 5.4/ 9 – 5.2/ 9.
