    wow – hell of a number for The CW there with All American!

  2. 69 Road Runner

    9-1-1 is still a bona fide hit for FOX

  3. Destiny

    All American could end up the highest rated premiere on the entire network this season.

      Oh come on, Charmed will blow them all away. LOL. Though serious I’d expect Walker and Legacies to do well on Thursday (I’d guess 0.5/.03). But those were great numbers for All American. Hope it keeps up.

        I think Walker will probably premiere well with viewers but poor in the demo as theyl be old. Wouldn’t be surprised with a 1 point something million 0.2-0.3 premiere. And as the show is CBS made itl get renewed repeatedly anyway lol.
