Versus NBC's slot average last season, "Revolution" is up by 7% in 18-49 (1.5 vs. 1.4, "live plus same day, non-sports") and up 20% in total viewers (5.393 million vs. 4.509 million).

· For the night, NBC finished within 0.9 of a rating point of #1 (1.6 vs. 2.5 for ABC and CBS), cutting in half a gap that stood at 1.8 of a rating point for the second regular Wednesday of last season (1.7 vs. 3.5 for Fox on Oct. 10, 2012).
