Well, I guess we shouldn’t complain since Supernatural was pre-empted in both Chicago (the largest CW market) and Sacramento, but the ratings weren’t exactly blockbusters. I usually find when the show is interrupted in Chicago, the demo rating goes down .1 and the number of viewers around 250,000 to 300,000. Considering WGN tends to interrupt a lot of CW programming, I’m not sure why they are even an affiliate.
But hey, finales in other seasons have traditionally been among the weakest when it comes to ratings. People just don’t watch in the spring like they do in the fall. It’s not a season or a series low though, so that’s the good news. Both episodes still drew over 2 million, even if the demo rating was a pitiful .8. Ratings are courtesy of TV By The Numbers.
