Black Lightning Premiere Ratings is Strongest The CW Seen in Two Years


Black Lightning pilot episode premiered on Tuesday with the strongest ratings The CW has seen in two years in that time slot.

The total viewership was 2.31 million with a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic, making it the most watched premiere for The CW since DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which had a viewership of 3.2 million, back in 2016.

Black Lightning ratings are the highest numbers for a Tuesday night at 9pm television series that wasn’t one of the crossover episodes, which The CW hasn’t seen since Supernatural left the slot three years ago.
