'Once Upon a Time' Starts Strong, 'Boss' Opens to Soft Rating


The ABC fairytale drama draws 12.8 million viewers on Monday night, while Kelsey Grammer-starring series pulls in a total of 1.7 million viewers during the weekend.

Generating a lot of buzz for having "Lost" writers behind it, "Once Upon a Time" managed to attract a great number of viewers on its debut night. The Sunday, October 23 premiere was watched by 12.8 million viewers with a 3.9 rating among adults 18-49.

This marked ABC's highest-rated new series premiere this fall and No. 1 drama debut in 18-49 demo on any network this season. More impressively, the Jennifer Morrison-starring fairytale show did so while competing against NFL football on NBC and World Series Game 4 on FOX.

In another premiere rating news, "Boss" had a mediocre start despite gaining praises from critics. It delivered a total of 1.7 million viewers from multiple airings its opening weekend since it was debuted Friday night, October 21 on Starz.

The number is not good enough compared to the cable network's other shows such as "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" which drew 2.8 million viewers on its first weekend. Still, "Boss" has secured a guarantee not to be canceled anytime soon since it has been ordered for a second season even a month before its premiere.

    I found Boss to be quite riveting. It's got a little bit of everything.

    Speaking for our disappointed household/family of four, we sure as hell won't be watching a second ePISSode of "Once Upon a Time." The males barfed, and even the ladies felt tricked. Flying busty blue fairies and orders from Jiminy Cricket? PEEYUUKE. And since when is 1950s Walt Disney a "classic fairy tale"? OMG, I can't stop retching.
