The Charts: Once Upon A Time Almost Frozen Out of the Top 25

By | December 18, 2014


once-upon-a-time-s4With Once Upon A Time’s surprise drop in the ratings for its Fall finale, it slipped all the way to the Number 25 slot on the broadcast network charts based on the 18-49 demographic. That’s the lowest it has been all season and we will have to wait until it returns from its two and a half month hiatus on March 1st to see if it rebounds. And TNT’s The Librarians also saw a drop in its chart ranking (to Number 13) as its second episode slipped considerably from its first (more on the ratings drops for both these shows at this link). On the General Sentiment charts that track activity on the social networks, most of the usual suspects showed up on the broadcast network chart as almost all of those had their Fall finales this last week.
