Sunday evening saw ratings for ABC’s fantasy drama Once Upon A Time rise with the introduction of Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) to the series. The boost in ratings benefited the rest of ABC’s Sunday evening line up with soapy drama Revenge and struggling supernatural series 666 Park Avenue also seeing a rise in their ratings.
The second series of Once Upon A Time continued on ABC on Sunday night as yet another story-book character was introduced; the highly anticipated debut of Captain Hook to the fantasy drama. The arrival of the character to the series boosted its ratings with 9.7 million viewers tuning in scoring a 3.3 18-49 rating.
As stated above the rise in ratings boosted ABC’s Sunday evening line-up as a whole. Revenge pulled in 8.6 million viewers with a 2.8 18-49 rating while the broadcasters’ struggling new series 666 Park Avenue finally halted its ratings decline. The supernatural drama, starring Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn, pulled in 4.9 million viewers with a 1.8 18-49 rating. A welcome reversal of its fortunes even if its performance was still relatively modest but if 666 Park Avenue can continue to increase its ratings from now on then its future may be secured.
