“Jane the Virgin” Solid in Debut

The second series premiere on The CW this season was less positive than the first, but still, it was mostly positive for the growing network.

jane-the-virgin-key-artThe series premiere of Jane the Virgin debuted to 1.61million viewers and 0.6 A18-49.  The number sounds small, but it is the best viewership in the timeslot since February 23, 2012, and best demo delivery since the series finale of Gossip Girl in December 2012.  In addition, Jane the Virgin grew out of The Originals in total viewers, jumping 22%, and demonstrated 86% retention in the demo.  The two shows obviously share very little with each other, but the night was a winner for The CW.

Meanwhile, a new episode of Scorpion garnered 11.51 million viewers and 2.4 A18-49, down only a tenth from last weeks episode.  The show has yet to snag a full season order.  If I had to guess, CBS is waiting until 2 Broke Girls and The Millers enter the 8 o’clock hour to see if it harms Scorpion.  Still, I think Scorpion is a winner and CBS has to protect it for at least a season.
