Once Upon a Time continued to grow for the third straight week, scoring its best numbers since its season premiere.
The ABC drama was the only show to climb Sunday, rising to 10.1 million viewers and a 3.5. Lead-outs Revenge (7.7 million, 2.6) was down a tenth and 666 Park Avenue (4.1 million, 1.4) plummeted to a series low.

Once upon a time, back when young Carl Grimes was still more or less a little boy, his papa Rick laid down the facts of life and death as it applies to the zombie-infested world they now occupy. "No more kid stuff," Rick told the boy, giving him the gun Carl would later use in a way no could have imagined. "People are gonna die. I'm gonna die. [Your] Mom. There's no way you can ever be ready for it."

Our top moments of the week:
15. Best Reveal, Part I: No guests? No problem for Watch What Happens: Live host Andy Cohen, who puts on a one-man show in the clubhouse on Monday when Hurricane Sandy prevents his guest and audience from showing up. Wearing pajamas in front of a fake fire, Cohen plays clips, takes calls from his viewers, and — most importantly — reveals what his Real Housewives intro line would be: "I may be a man, but I fight like a girl," he declares proudly, staring straight into the camera. Best pajama party ever!
14. Best Shoutout: When Jane suddenly...
Question: After the embarrassing debacle of Viva Laughlin, I figured network TV wouldn't ever touch musical dramas ever again. Then Ryan Murphy surprised the naysayers with the out-of-the-box success of Glee. Then came along my personal favorite Smash last winter, and the also-great Nashville this fall. Now I read a couple months ago that Fox was trying to revise Fame. My question is this: Have you ever known of a time when so many music-based shows have been on TV? Is it because of the success of American Idol, The Voice and The X Factor? And do you think there is room on TV for possibly four musicals, or will they cannibalize each other for viewers? I've noticed Glee has been down in the ratings, and for a year-four show targeted at the fickle teen market, is this expected? Have you heard any buzz on Smash? I thought Season 1 was great, but I did notice the weak links too, which seem to have been corrected. I hope Season 2 really gets grittier and goes more behind-the-scenes a la West Wing instead of the soapy melodrama of S1. Thoughts? — Sean

14. Best Non-Reunion: We were all, "I don't want to wait!" when we heard about the Dawson's Creek reunion planned for Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. And while we were Sad Dawsons not to see James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes together again, we were pleased with Busy Philipps' hilarious cameo and an appearance by...
Madeleine Stowe, Mel Gibson
Mel Gibson may not have many friends left in Hollywood, but he can count his former co-star Madeleine Stowe among them.
The Revenge star, who appeared with Gibson in the 2002 movie We Were Soldiers, tells Katie Couric that she still considers Gibson a friend and praised the humanitarian work that he has done with his ex-wife Robyn Moore.

ABC saw an across-the-board improvement Sunday, led by Once Upon a Time.
The drama, which introduced Captain Hook Sunday, nabbed 9.7 million viewers and a 3.3 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up three-tenths from last week. Revenge (8.6 million, 2.8) followed with an 8 percent climb and 666 Park Avenue showed the biggest improvement ...

If Revenge fans thought Conrad Grayson couldn't get any more conniving, just wait until Sunday's episode.
"You'll see with this episode just how hideous a man Conrad Grayson is," Christa B. Allen, who plays the daughter to Conrad (Henry Czerny), tells TVGuide.com. "His actions in this episode really cement the idea that Charlotte will probably side with her mother."
