  1. Joseph Daniels

    Woah, a 0.3 for SUPERMAN & LOIS and a 0.2 for THE FLASH. They should switch and give SUPERMAN & LOIS the 8PM slot.


  2. Destiny

    Mayans MC is an easy renewal for FX as the show is doing fairly well. Superman & Lois is also remarkably stable for the CW.


    • Destiny

      The previous week for S&L was a 0.23 in the finals. The difference above in the demo is a few thousand Nielsen viewers(About a couple of households in real life Nielsen values). That’s like nothing.


  3. Joseph Daniels

    258,000 more viewers for SUPERMAN & LOIS than THE FLASH. It’s also tied for third as the most watched episode of the season so far.

    1×01 – 1.75
    1×02 – 1.24
    1×03 – 1.25
    1×04 – 1.21
    1×05 – 1.24


  4. JoeyB

    Any word on Dark Side of the Ring: Confidential last night on ViceTV?


  5. 69 Road Runner

    It looks like that was a Super Tuesday for S&L


  6. LC

    Lakers viewership is smaller without Lebron


  7. 69 Road Runner

    CBS Renews ‘FBI’ & ‘FBI: Most Wanted’ and Orders Spinoff Series ‘FBI: International’

    [per Deadline]


  8. Rilm

    Mixed-ish and Black-ish were new on Tuesday.
