[via press release from The CW]

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

As Thursday Anchor, "Smallville" Comparable to "America's Next Top Model" in Viewers and Adults 18-34

"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.
