A highlight of the WB's schedule during the Gilmore Girls glory days, Tuesday night became another crumbling frontier during the CW's existence. 90210 began its run with one of the most impressive individual results in the network's history and remained pretty solid through season one. But as it fell, so too did the CDub's Tuesday ratings... until a major rejuvenation in the 2013-14 season.

2014-15 Update: Tuesday was already the CW's strongest night in 2013-14... and they went and improved on it by thirty-nine percent in 2014-15. (It's technically a little less if you combine Supernatural's numbers with what iZombie did from mid-March onward. But still a lot.) The Flash had the biggest A18-49+ in the history of the CW and was very close to having the biggest netlet season on record, just a point behind 2002-03 Smallville. It will lead into OK midseason performer iZombie (39) again this fall, as the newest DC series Legends of Tomorrow waits in the wings patiently.
