Fall TV Winners & Losers
Fall TV Winners & Losers - "Revolution"
WINNER: “Revolution” (NBC)
The Peacock Network has struggled for years to climb out of the ratings basement, but they hit upon a winning formula with “Revolution." (And that formula is “'The Walking Dead' without all that gross zombie stuff," apparently.) Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with no electricity, NBC’s sword-swinging freshman drama takes advantage of viewers’ current appetite for genre fare (and a comfy timeslot after “The Voice”) to pull in 8 million viewers a week, making it the one unquestioned new hit of the fall season.
