The holiday season is upon us, and that means our TV schedule is slimming out a bit. Most of our shows had Thanksgiving week off, but there's still plenty to talk about. American Horror Story tried to brave the holiday week and paid for it, while Once Upon a Time got a big rebound and Revolution stopped falling. And you can probably guess how The Walking Dead did.

Check out our chart and commentary for more on how your favorite shows are doing in Live + Same Day viewers and rating.


Revolution (NBC) 7.02 million viewers/2.6/7 share

Revolution finally leveled off after weeks of slipping in the ratings and managed to win its timeslot to boot. It's not the biggest show on Monday night, but this could be a sign that it's gaining some stability.
