Legends of Tomorrow ratings drive The CW to most watched Thursday in three years
The series premiere of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and the Season 3 premiere of The 100 combined to give The CW its most watched Thursday night (2.56M) in more than three years (since 10/11/12) and its highest rated Thursday night in A18-49 (1.0/3) in more than two years (since 11/21/13).
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow drew a 1.2/4 in A18-49, beating ABC and NBC in the 8-9pm hour and giving The CW its most watched telecast in the time period in more than three years (11/1/12), and the highest rating in the time period in two years (1/26/14, The Vampire Diaries‘ 100th episode). It was the highest rating in the time period among M18-49 in nearly six years (2/4/10).
