The network also scored +82% gains in adults 18-49 (2.0/5), +110% in persons 12-34 (2.1/7) and +85% in total viewers (4.7 million).

The premiere of SMALLVILLE, from Tollin-Robbins Productions in association with Warner Bros.

It was the first time in the history of The WB that the network earned a #1 rank in an adult demographic against major broadcast competition on a Thursday as it toppled everything else on television, including Survivor.

The super series scored THE WB THURSDAY'S HIGHEST RATINGS EVER in men 18-34, men 12-34 and men 18-49, and delivered NEW ALL-TIME TIME PERIOD RECORDS FOR THE WB in total viewers (5.9 million), adults 18-34 (3.1/9), persons 12-34 (3.0/9) and adults 18-49 (2.6/7).

SMALLVILLE posted triple-digit growth over last year's fall premieres in the time period including a gain of +138% in adults 18-34 and +131% in persons 12-34.

The two quality dramas combined to equal the best Thursday night rating ever for The WB among men 18-49 (1.9/5) and scored its highest total viewer number (4.7 million) since October 2001. The WB Thursday also delivered its best ratings since January 2003 in adults 18-34 (2.2/6), men 18-34 (2.2/7) and all 18-49 demos � adults (2.0/5), women (2.0/5) and men (1.9/5).
