Season 8 Premiere Ratings

The CW season premiere of Smallville led off with 4.383 million viewers and a 1.8/6 in both demo categories. It was down around 14% versus last year’s season premiere (9/27/07) of 5.08 million viewers, but only down about 5% among 18-49 year olds where last year it had a 1.9.
The drop in viewers for Smallville was offset somewhat by the gain in viewers for the premiere of one of my favorite shows, Supernatural which averaged 3.956 million viewer from 9p-10p and a 1.7/5 among 18-49 year olds. Last year’s season premiere on 10/4/07 had of 2.97 million viewers and an 18-49 rating of 1.2, so the gains in viewers are ~33% versus last year and ~42% among 18-49 year olds. Way to go Supernatural!

  2. Any of you who missed the premiere- it will be repeated on Sunday night - check your listings it will be on early before the regular Sunday night shows. Many markets were pre-empted with sports so this is your chance to watch and have all of your DVR viewings count into the numbers too! Smallville had a great premiere- the Justice League in action and Clark Kent making some BIG decisions. Chloe has a HUGE storyline that is coming about and Lois is in the thick of things as an investigative reporter, the new baddies will all be shown next week so you don't want to miss this one!
