The CW has reason to pop bottles, sort of, this morning. Its “Happy Hour” rose from a horrific 0.0 rating last week to a 0.1 rating last night. (The show still got a 0 share.)
That’s not *good* — but it’s a heck of a lot better than a full-on goose egg. The CW still finished dead last in broadcast’s primetime.
