Schedules Plus Enhanced: CW Thursday




Schedules Plus is the ultimate almanac to broadcast network primetime scheduling since 2001. It features lineups for three different parts of the year, as well as A18-49+ ratings that more fairly account for historical decline. For more on the tables and charts in Schedules Plus, see this primer.

This post covers CW Thursday. It's been right with Wednesday among the CW's best weeknights, thanks to consistently great 8/7c anchors. In this case, there was a seamless transition from Smallville to The Vampire Diaries in 2009. But the TVD tradition seems to be over, as the show headed for Friday in 2016. Can superhero show Legends of Tomorrow take up the mantle? It did well in season one, and will lead off in fall 2016 as well. See the 2015-16 breakdown.
