[via press release from The CW]

SOLID START FOR CW'S THURSDAY LINE-UP OF "SMALLVILLE" AND "SUPERNATURAL"

"Supernatural" Debut Out-Performs "Everwood" Premiere on WB Thursday Last Year

CW Tops Fox for the Night in Adults 18-34 and Men Demos

September 28, 2006 (Burbank, CA) - The CW Thursday line-up of "Smallville" and "Supernatural" debuted in stronger form in key demos than when the two were first paired together on the WB on March 30, 2006, improving by 10% in adults 18-34 (2.2/6), 10% in men 18-34 (2.3/7), 6% in adults 18-49 (1.9/4), and 100,000 viewers (4.4million), according to preliminary live plus same day Nielsen ratings for Thursday, Sept. 28. This also matches the best performance of the "Smallville" "Supernatural" pairing on The WB last year (4/20/06) in adults 18-34, women 18-34 and men 18-34.
