Supernatural delivered some otherworldly numbers Tuesday night. The CW’s loooooong-running drama series had its most-watched episode in four years.
Despite being in its ninth season, Supernatural had 2.8 million viewers Tuesday night, its biggest audience since 2010 and tied its season high among 18-49. Lead-in The Originals did okay too, with 2.2 million viewers and a 1.0 rating.
Supernatural faced the State of the Union Address on CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox at 9 p.m., so it was almost certainly helped by the fact it series was the only entertainment program on broadcast during its hour (nothing succeeds like eliminating all the competition). Earlier this month, The CW’s president told reporters about Supernatural, “As long as I’m here and those numbers still hold, god bless them, they can go as long as they want.”
The State of the Union ratings will be released later today.
