    not sure we’ve seen a 9p CW show grow out of an 8p show in overall viewership in a long time – great hold overall for Lois and Superman from last week as well!


  2. 69 Road Runner

    The ratings for Black-ish and Mixed-ish are sort of baddish


    • Lowell

      Wow, I didn’t realize NCIS was still so big
      10 million viewers would have been considered good even before the streaming era


  3. 69 Road Runner

    Little Superman On The Prairie skews pretty old for a CW show….
