The CW’s rebroadcast of the Smallville pilot on Friday night drew 1.92 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, an improvement of 54 percent and 40 percent, respectively, on the series’ previous repeat outing.
I’ll also note that “Pilot” delivered more than double the audience of The CW’s Shedding for the Wedding, and even outperformed the most recent original 90210 and Gossip Girl outings. That’s all I’ve got. It’s all apples-and-oranges, anyway; I’m sure someone will note that was pre-empted in Chillicothe or something.
Elsewhere on Friday:
8/7c | NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? this week led the hour on both counts, with 5.76 million viewers and a 1.3 rating. CBS’ CHAOS (5.64 mil/1.0) dropped 10 percent from its premiere.
9/8c | CSI: NY dominated with 9.42 million viewers and a 1.6 rating, down just a bit from its previous outing.
10/9c | Blue Bloods was the night’s most watched program with 10.3 million viewers, and edged out its time slot rivals in the demo (with a 1.5 rating).
