Ratings: Riverdale Returns Steady, SEAL Team Ties Low, Stumptown Dips

Riverdale - Season 4 Premiere

The CW’s Riverdale opened Season 4 on Wednesday with 1.14 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating (per finals), on par with its previous average (1.05 mil/0.36) and up from its May finale (860K/0.3). TVLine readers gave the episode a very rare average grade of “A+.”

Leading out of that, Nancy Drew‘s debut gave the time slot its biggest audience in nearly two years (1.18 mil) while scoring a 0.3 demo rating and a TVLine reader grade of “B-.” (All American last season averaged 670K and a 0.2 in the post-Riverdale slot.)
