Like Thursday, the CW's Wednesday has remained pretty solid throughout the network history as the torch has passed from one successful anchor to a second. America's Top Model's cycles in the early years after the WB/UPN merge were the strongest relative programs the network has ever aired, though they never really used that launch pad very well. Now it's Arrow's territory.

2014-15 Update: The CW's comic book-fueled breakout in 2014-15 didn't come solely on the back of newbie The Flash; there was also a huge upswing for the third-year drama Arrow, which had a long string of low-1 ratings following its first crossover with Flash on December 3. If not for The Flash, this year of Arrow actually would've become the biggest A18-49+ drama season in CW history!
But sophomore The 100 was still in pretty marginal territory, and so it's coming off the bench in 2015-16. Supernatural showed up on Wednesday in March, averaging a 39 for its late-season Wednesday episodes, and it'll be back again this fall.
