‘Once Upon A Time’ is a Huge TV Hit on ABC
It appears everyone or near everyone was watching TV Sunday night. With over 22 million people watching NFL football, The Simpson’s 28th season premiere on Fox received some pretty good numbers with 8 million people sticking around for the aventures on Bart, Homer and the gang. But the big winner of the night was Once Upon A Time on ABC, getting close to 12 million viewers, killing The Amazing Race, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers.
Once Upon A Time, now in season 2, may be the most creative series on TV. ABC took a chance with this series as it doesn’t fit the typical TV mold of today; it’s not the same tired CSI or reality show that people are used to seeing from the networks. Every Disney fairy tale you grew up with is in the story line, except with this show, they show you a side of them you didn’t know. Every week, we see Snow White, Prince Charming, the Evil Queen and other characters live in a town called StoryBrooke, Maine. The show has many of the writers of the beloved, long running Lost. When you watch OUAT, you are mezmerized by the crisp writing, acting and creativity. It is by far, don’t miss TV. In fact, the entire ABC Sunday night lineup is a winner with Revenge at 9pm and the new, 666 Park Avenue. It is by far, the network taking the most number of chances with fresh ideas and concepts. Sunday night on ABC is by far, “don’t miss TV.”
