TV Ratings: Batwoman Returns Low, The Rookie Stabilizes

at .

The CW's rebooted Batwoman hit the air Sunday night, and it looks like viewers either forgot about the premiere or tuned out entirely.

Batwoman Season 2 Episode 1, its first episode with Javicia Leslie in the title role, drew 663,000 viewers and a 0.1 rating.

Given the hype surrounding a new lead taking over the series, these are disappointing figures, but how do they compare to Batwoman Season 1?

A Woman and a Suit - Batwoman

Well, Batwoman Season 1 launched with 1.9 million viewers and a 0.5 rating, but the series as a whole averaged 1 million viewers and a 0.3 rating.

The wider issue here could be that The CW was forced to postpone its returning slate due to COVID-19, meaning that this could be the shape of things to come for the network.

Wilder, Ryan - Batwoman

We'll have a better idea when shows like Riverdale, All American, and Legacies launch this week.

Over on CBS, NCIS: Los Angeles (5.4 million/0.6 rating) was down slightly, while, NCIS: New Orleans (4.9 million/0.5 rating) was steady as a rock.

Over on ABC, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (2.7 million/0.4 rating) took a big hit week-to-week.

Card Sharks returned with 1.9 million viewers and a 0.3 rating.

Harper and Nolan - The Rookie Season 3 Episode 3

The Rookie (3.6 million/0.4 rating) was steady at its series low in the demo, but rose a little in total viewers.
