Revenge kicked off it's first season with generally favorable reviews, becoming the #1 show in it's time-slot and garnering the largest viewership in the Wednesday 10:00pm hour since Lost.
However, during the second season the show began to fault due to its move to 9:00pm Sundays, as it was constantly airing against awards shows and sports games. This, mixed with a bad fan reaction to new story-lines, caused the show to fall even further.
The third season started off low, but has gained momentum as the season has gone along. After it's move to the 10:00pm hour on Sunday the show has picked up in the ratings and is doing rather well.
The show stars Emily VanCamp as Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke, Madeleine Stowe as Victoria Grayson, Henry Czerny as Conrad Grayson, Joshua Bowman as Daniel Grayson, Nick Wechsler as Jack Porter, Barry Sloane as Aiden Mathis, Christa B. Allen as Charlotte Clarke and Gabriel Mann as Nolan Ross.
Former stars include Ashley Madekwe as Ashley Davenport and Connor Paolo as Declan Porter.
