So, we know that live ratings these days are not a major indicator of a show's success. There's buzz on social media like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, there's online views, DVR ratings, yada yada. But still, when a show you're hoping will succeed does such impressive live ratings right out of the gate, one has to take it as a really promising sign.
Walker premiered last week to 2.43 million viewers, which incidentally was over 1 million viewers more than the "Supernatural" series finale. Given their ratings these days, it's easily number one for The CW, by a lot. It was the largest audience for The CW in more than 3 years, the largest audience on Thursday in 4 years, and the best series premiere the network has had in 5 years. That's quite something given how live ratings have dwindled so drastically.
This week, as expected had a slight drop off, but it was still over 2 million. 2.11 million to be exact. I know it's only 2 weeks in, but I think The CW can call this a hit. If this keeps up, they can call this their new crown jewel.
