It’s almost January which means we’re close to the point where The CW announces the first of its fall renewals, and typically this has meant they renew everything. But might that happen this year? We can glean hints from the ratings report published by TVLine today. Here’s how everything is performing.
First off….guess which scripted show got the lowest ratings of the fall? Yup, the current best show on the network, because they stuck it in their worst timeslot. If there’s a silver lining for Nancy Drew, it’s the notation that it has the largest DVR bump of any CW series by a mile. That means its fanbase has not abandoned it…it just CAN’T WATCH THE THING LIVE WHEN IT’S STUCK ON FRIDAYS AT NINE!
You didn’t believe me when I told you All-American is The CW’s current best performing series…well, here’s the proof. No one you know may be watching it, but someone out there is. Walker is also surprisingly #2 and keeping its head above the million mark. Does Jared Padalecki have that many diehard fans, or is there a weird, unexplained post-Millennial nostalgia for cheesy CBS roundhouse-kick shows?
It should be no surprise that the audience for Batwoman is slipping, but The Flash has been even worse in quality lately and its needle hasn’t moved one bit. It’s unsinkable. It’s in the same position it was in five years ago, as The CW’s most popular superhero show. You can’t tell me THAT many people find Chester P. Runk a suitable substitute for Cisco.
Finally, The CW’s Legends Of The Hidden Temple revival performed horribly even by CW standards, which is why I believe it will break the streak and become the first fall-debut series in years The CW does not bring back for a second term. Everything else has a shot, based on past behavior at the network. We’re really hoping Drew can pull through.
No matter how old he gets, The Rocketeer will always remain frozen in time, a late 1930s rocket jock at the edge of the Second World War. In the real world, Rocketeer is now 40 years old, and it’s been a wild ride for him. From his humble beginnings in
The next Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero is MOON KNIGHT! If you’re counting, this makes 31,957 superheroes so far. Disney will tell you when you’ve had enough! Not only do we have a release date for the Moon Knight series, which has been in development for years, we also have the
You can’t exactly call Marvel’s Eternals a flop, but you can’t call it a success either. Two months after the film’s release, there’s no demand for merchandise, nor are there memes of any of the characters being traded around. I wasn’t feeling it either, gang. The previews and trailers, showing
A bomb was dropped by The Wall Street Journal this morning when it reported WB and CBSViacom, the joint owners of The CW, are thinking of selling off the network. The recipient would most likely be Nexstar, a Texas-based company that already owns most of The CW’s affiliate stations across
