The 2013-2014 TV season is officially over, and the Nielsen ratings are in for the entire season. It’s very good news for Supernatural.
The show finished with an average of 2.811 million viewers for season 9, which is the highest for the series since season 5. That’s also enough to make it second overall on the CW, behind Arrow.
Even more impressive, the numbers are also up for the important 18-49 demographic, with 1.667 million. That makes it the highest-rated CW show of the year in that demo.
Clearly Tuesday nights, and having a decent lead-in with The Originals, paid off. This long into its run, SPN is still a big hit for the CW.
