The CW's week was led by strong outings from GOSSIP GIRL, which delivered its best ratings in nearly 2 months, AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL, which won its time period with women, and SUPERNATURAL, which posted some of its best adult and men 18-34 ratings since premiering on The CW.

Compared to a year ago (week of March 31, 2008), The CW was up double-digits this week in key demos including +40% among women 18-34 (1.4/4), +38% in adults 18-34 (1.1/3), +25% in adults 18-49 (1.0/3) and +33% in women 18-49 (1.2/3).
