Thursday Final Nationals: ‘Supernatural’ Twelfth Season Opener Draws Three-Year Time Slot High for CW

CBS/NFL Network continued its Thursday night win streak with “Thursday Night Football”. The Denver Broncos-San Diego Chargers game (8.7 U.S. household rating/15 share, 14.49 million viewers) was off just 2 percent in total viewers from the year-ago TNF game telecast, Atlanta-New Orleans (14.78 million on 10/15/15).

Supernatural” is still showing its ratings mettle for the netlet. The twelfth season premiere of the long-running series not only built on its lead in — the second season premiere of “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” — by +18 percent in total viewers, +40 percent in adults 18-34, and +33 percent in adults 18-49 but also delivered the most viewers in the Thursday 9 p.m. ET/PT time period in three years, since the series premiere of “The Originals” on 10/03/13, and was the highest-rated show in its time period in adults 18-34 and adults 18-49 (0.8/3) in three years (10/17/13, series premiere of “Reign”).

The night’s most-watched single cable network was FS1 with Game 5 of MLB’s “National League Division Series” between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Washington Nationals (2.77 U.S. household rating, 4.519 million viewers). This was the second year the Dodgers had played in an NLDS Game 5 on a Thursday; on the downside, Dodgers-Nationals was at 38 percent in households and 39 percent in total viewers below from the year-ago Mets-Dodgers series-deciding game that had aired on TBS (4.50 U.S. household rating, 7.384 million viewers on 10/15/15).

  1. Good night for the CW. Good decision to pair Legends of Tomorrow, probably their weakest superhero show, with the always reliable Supernatural. Now they just need to realize that they need to put something that will appeal to that demo behind the other superhero shows during the week. My advice? Maybe move the Originals behind either Supergirl or The Flash. The show probably still has fans but Friday is doing it no favors and it will arguably do much better than either Jane the Virgin or No Tomorrow. I’d also place iZombie behind a superhero show by about mid-November. Dump the low rated stuff on Friday and move on.

    ABC should do one of two things:
    Either flip Conviction and Notorious and see if one of them gets a bump out of the swap or

    Flip Notorious and How to Get Away with Murder so at least the Shonda shows are paired up.

    It’s been a tough fall for new shows and while I don’t think Notorious got the promotion that other ABC programs got, it really has no excuse for that horrible of retention from Greys.

    NBC’s comedies are actually doing better than I thought they would. Chicago Med is doing okay but I expect Scandal to trounce it demographically once January rolls around. The Blacklist is the definition of skewing old.
