The CW’s “Black Lightning” does not have a particularly electrifying Season 4 premiere
Fox’s “9-1-1” and “9-1-1: Lone Star” both grew in ratings the week following the network’s crossover event. The weekly growth, combined with a lower-rated episode of “The Bachelor” on ABC, led Fox to tie the Disney-owned broadcast channel atop Monday’s Nielsen key-demo ratings. Fox was easily the most-watched of the broadcast nets last night.
The CW was at the bottom of the broadcast rankings. That’s not an unusual spot for the youngest-skewing over-the-air channel, but CW executives surely would have preferred to see better numbers from the Season 4 premiere of “Black Lightning.”
