So, how did the much-hyped premiere of 90210 do in the ratings????
It did pretty good. Very good, actually!
The new 90210 debuted Tuesday evening at 34% higher than everyone's fav, Gossip Girl did just the night befoe.
90210's premiere has become the highest rated debut for a scripted series that the CW has ever had.
The two hour premiere was viewed by over 4.9 million people and got a 2.6 rating among adults 18-40.
And that's great news for the CW as they've been depending on the success of the new show to secure their network's survival. Many industry insiders feared that if the show wasn't a hit, the network might not have another year to try again.
But let's hope the show continues doing well. If people don't tune in next week, that could signal big problems for the network.
Tim Brooks, a TV historian, says "I think it's probably excessive to pin the survival of a network on a single show, but unquestionably the re-launch of this well-known franchise is going to be inordinately important in bringing some heat back to the CW, and forestalling further erosion of their audience. Youth-oriented networks, more than anyone, need heat."
So, will U be watching episode two?
