‘Revolution’ season 2 loses in Wednesday ratings as identity of Mr President won’t be revealed until mid-season

NBC moved Revolution from having a Voice lead-in on Monday nights to self-start on its troubled Wednesdays this fall, and gave the coveted reality show lead-in to new James Spader drama The Blacklist.

Billy Bauer as Miles Revolution season 2Revolution had 6.8 million viewers and a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating. That’s down 56 percent from its series premiere, and a bit lower than what the show averaged at the end of last season, as well. 

Revolution also came in behind ABC comedies, CBS’ Survivor and Fox’s The X Factor.

Fans may not stick long enough as the mystery man known as Mr. President will be unmasked “by midseason,” exec producer Eric Kripke confirmed to TV Line.

“For now, he’s just this shadowy figure that is moving into the White House, and we’ll start to tease all that out.”

Adam Beach (SVU, Big Love) makes his first appearance in the season 2 premiere playing “the sheriff of the town of Willoughby that our heroes stumble into and immediately there’s a little friction with Miles because he senses that there’s [something off],” Kripke explains.

“Miles comes into town using an alias and not wanting anyone to know his true identity, and Adam begins to realize pretty quickly that there’s more to Miles than meets the eye.”
