TV Ratings: ‘Supernatural’ Season 13 Premiere Holds Steady

The “Supernatural” Season 13 premiere held up well in the Nielsen overnight ratings for Thursday night.

The long-running CW series averaged a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.1 million viewers. That is down only slightly in the key demo but even in total viewers with the Season 12 premiere (0.8, 2.1 million). It is also up compared to the Season 12 average Live+Same Day ratings (0.6, 1.7 million per episode).

Later on The CW, the Season 6 premiere of “Arrow” drew a 0.6 and 1.6 million viewers, down slightly in both measures from the Season 5 premiere (0.7, 1.9 million).

CBS aired only the “Thursday Night Football” matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers. The game is currently averaging a 3.1 and 10.5 million viewers, though those numbers will likely see greater than normal adjustment later today. In metered market households, the game holds a 10.6 rating. That is off approximately five percent from last week’s game but up seven percent compared to the comparable game last season.

On ABC, “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.0, 8 million) held steady and was the top-rated and most-watched scripted program of the night. A new episode of “Scandal” (1.2, 5.1 million) was down slightly in the demo, while “How to Get Away With Murder” (1.0, 3.9 million) was up slightly in that measure.

On NBC, “Superstore” (1.1, 4.3 million) and “The Good Place” (1.2, 4 million) were even. “Will & Grace” (1.7, 6.6 million) was down in the demo in its third week. “Great News” (1.0, 4.3 million) improved slightly in total viewers, while “Chicago Fire” (1.1, 6 million) was even.

For Fox, “Gotham” (0.8, 2.7 million) dipped in the demo, while “The Orville” (1.0, 3.4 million) improved slightly.

CBS is currently winning the night with a 2.9 and 10 million viewers. ABC is second with a 1.4 and 5.6 million viewers. NBC is third with a 1.2 and 5.2 million viewers. Fox is fourth with a 0.9 and 3 million viewers. The CW averaged a 0.7 and 1.8 million viewers.
