CW Gives Full Season Orders to Two Series

flash-logoAfter a great start to the new season for the freshman series on The CW, the network is rewarding The Flash and Jane the Virgin with full season orders.

The Flash stormed out of the gate with 4.8 million viewers and 1.9 A18-49.  In week two, it took a slight drop to 4.27 million viewers and 1.7 A18-49, a very slight drop given the huge debut numbers.  These numbers are among the best-ever for The CW, since the premiere of The Vampire Diaries.

“We have had a fantastic start to our season this year, with THE FLASH launching as our most-watched series premiere ever, and JANE THE VIRGIN recognized as the best new show this season by critics across the country,” said Pedowitz. “Over the past three seasons, we have made it our mission to grow and to broaden out our audience, and to keep raising the bar with the quality and impact of our new shows, and THE FLASH and JANE have both exceeded our expectations on all counts. I’m thrilled to announce full season orders for both of these terrific new series.”
