The CW’s All American threw a touchdown on Monday night, opening Season 2 with its largest audience ever — 926,000 total viewers, besting its previous high by 20 percent — and its first 0.3 demo rating since late November. TVLine readers gave the premiere an average grade of “A.”
All American‘s freshman run averaged 670K and a 0.2 leading out of Riverdale.
Capping the CW’s night, Black Lightning‘s Season 3 premiere drew 900K and a 0.3 (reader grade “B”), on par with its sophomore average (960K/0.3, leading out of the Arrowverse’s The Flash and then Arrow) and up a tick from its March finale.
