In a 10 PM Showdown, ABC’s ‘Revenge’ Triumphs Over NBC’s ‘Rock Center’

ABC News and NBC News went head-to-head at 10pm last night, with ABC presenting “Revenge for Real,” a news knockoff of the drama of the same name, and NBC presenting a new “Rock Center,” featuring its report on Gawker Media.

Sure enough, the Brian Williams email incident made it into the final cut:

According to Nielsen finals from last night, “Revenge for Real” on ABC drew just over five million viewers, compared to “Rock Center,” which drew just over 3.5 million. Impressively, “Rock Center” improved on its “Law & Order: SVU” lead-in, while “Revenge” improved on its comedy lead-in “Happy Endings” as well.
