TV Premieres: By the Numbers

Good news for The CW.

As you may have read, the network has been struggling in the ratings, but last night's premieres of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill both opening strongly, giving the network its best ever Monday evening. Perhaps things are finally looking up.

Gossip Girl averaged 3.4 million viewers and One Tree Hill 3.1.

Raising the Bar, the new legal drama starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar on TNT, also had a solid start. In fact, with 7.7 million viewers, this was a new record for a series premiere on ad-supported cable.

Over on Fox, the Prison Break premiere averaged 6.5 million viewers, which was actually down a million from last year's premiere.
