The Twin Cities say that want a "Revolution."

The new NBC show premieres to decent numbers Monday night, thanks in no small part to its lead-in "The Voice." According to Marc Berman, columnist at TV's Media Insights, the show earned a 7.9/13 in the ratings. Translation: It won ithe 9 p.m. timeslot and was 103 percent more successful that last year's debut of "The Playboy Club" on Monday night.

Berman called it a "stellar start."

Even stronger adjectives could be used to describe interest in the Twin Cities. According to KARE, the drama about a world without electricity lit up local viewers more than in any other market in the country. The show had a whooping 11.7 rating and a 19.7 share of households. In comparison, New York drew a 7.7 rating and a 12.1 share.

"It's exciting," said KARE general manager John Remes. "Our NBC program premieres have been doing very well."
