The Good Wife, Revenge Are Up In Ratings Because Sunday Was Made For Drama
If you’re a Sunday night drama on ABC or CBS, you’re probably having the best day ever. Because the numbers are in and dramas are all on the upswing, gobbling viewers away (even when the footballers are at play). Sorry, comedy — looks like Sunday just ain’t your day. The last night of the weekend has become a hotbed for dramatic activities and with the revelations from this weekend’s ratings it’s safe to assume that comedy should just look to broadcast itself elsewhere.

It's at this point in the summer that you're either too busy with summer fun to have time for television, or you're sunburnt and sick of barbecue and looking for some alone time, just you and your Netflix.

ABC Fall 2013 Premiere Dates Set
ABC fell a couple of weeks behind the other major networks in getting us the their Fall 2013 premiere schedule, but with months to go, that's kind of ok. All the same, it's exciting to get to see when the network's new and returning series will debut this fall. For ABC, that includes the highly anticipated Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and new 80s-set comedy The Goldbergs, which looks like it could be a winner.
Ashley Madekwe Will Not Return To Revenge In Season 3
Revenge worked its way through a lot of characters during Season 2, killing some off and conveniently disposing of many others. In addition to those leaving the show toward or at the end of last season, ABC’s hit drama announced earlier this week that series regular Ashley Madekwe will not be returning to Revenge in Season 3.

ABC has posted their 2013-2014 line-up of new and returning series, which gives us a look at the plan for the network's schedule for the fall. The network has moved The Neighbors over to Friday nights, to join Last Man Standing, and fill the gap left by Malibu Country.

Revenge Creator Mike Kelley Stepping Down As Showrunner After Season 2
Should Revenge return next fall for a third season, it will be doing so without its creator. Showrunner Mike Kelley is reportedly stepping down from his duties but will be available on a consulting basis after the series wraps up its second season. It sounds like this was a mutual decision between Kelley and ABC Studios.
Revenge Has Big Plans For Two-Hour Season 2 Finale
Revenge has already featured plenty of drama drama in its sophomore season on ABC, but audiences ain't seen nothing, yet. The soapy drama is setting up for a spectacular season finale on May 12 and will be giving fans a special two-hour episode to finish out the season.
Revenge Preview Teases A Wedding And A Dangerous Boat Ride
Tonight Revenge fans won’t get their weekly dose of the Amanda/Emily saga, thanks to the Super Bowl dominating the Sunday night airwaves. However, when the show returns to ABC’s schedule on February 10, Revenge has some big surprises for viewers, including a wedding and a honeymoon that doesn’t look like it will end well.
5 Great TV Characters With A Secret Dark Side
Inspired by tonight's premiere of NBC's new drama Do No Harm, we came up with our list of characters with a hidden dark side. These aren't merely characters leading secret lives, or suffering from some uncontrollable Jekyll & Hyde complex. These are characters who present themselves with one personality to the public, often including their seemingly closest friends, but are secretly harboring a dark and dangerous side that comes out in other circumstances and adds a layer or two of complexity to who they really are.
E! Buys Soapy Drama From Switched At Birth Executive Producer
E! is still pushing scripted programming pretty hard. The network is working to determine what scripted projects will go to pilot, and now E! has added yet another project to the pile. Called Shoreline, the network's newest project will follow a resident returning to a seaside town, only to find it overrun with the cast and crew of a popular soap opera called The Shore Line Yacht Club. The appearance of the show and its cast and crew causes clashes between the townies and the visitors, who come from different social stratospheres.
The Simpsons Wins The Night In Ratings But Revenge Hits Season Low
Ratings were all across the board last night, with some of the usual favorites faltering a bit and other shows crushing far more than usual. Sunday night is always a good night for TV, and if you were busy watching sports, following is a list of what everyone else was (or wasn’t) watching.
Dylan Walsh Joins Revenge For Multi-Episode Arc In Season 2
ABC’s Revenge has added one more to the lineup in Season 2. The soapy ensemble drama often throws new members into the pack, and this time Nip/Tuck’s Dylan Walsh has been added to the cast for a multi-episode arc. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Revenge is filled with attractive cast members, and Walsh fits that description to a tee.
Revenge Promotes Barry Sloane To Series Regular
One of the more interesting characters to make his way into Emily Thorne's tangled web is Aiden Mathis. Barry Sloane's character was introduced to Revenge at the start of Season 2, and it looks like we should get used to seeing him around as the actor has been bumped up from recurring to series regular.
Revenge Partners With Target And Neiman Marcus For Season 2 Advertising Scheme
ABC’s Revenge is getting into some strategic advertising. The company has partnered with high-end retailer Neiman Marcus and mass retailer Target to bring specific advertising to a special episode of ABC’s soapy drama. On November 11, any advertising that is not local (so we’ll still get some local news anchor men and women and the like) will be devoted to the two retailers and the clothing they sell.
Adrienne Barbeau Joins Revenge As A Horrible Mother Figure In Season 2
ABC’s Revenge will be introducing Victoria’s mom in an upcoming episode of the soapy drama, and she will be played by none other than veteran actress Adrienne Barbeau. If you have the lifespan to remember all the way back to the seventies, you may remember Barbeau as Carol in the hit comedy Maude. More recently she’s shown up in Dexter, but playing a mother who spent years damaging her daughter sounds a whole lot more fun.
