Neither “The Originals” nor “Supernatural” began its final stretch of the television season with a bang.
Returning for their first original episodes in four weeks and three weeks, respectively, The CW’s Tuesday dramas delivered their weakest performances of the season.
The former, which quickly solidified itself as the most successful of the network’s 2013-14 launches, matched its series low 0.7 adults 18-49 and posted a new low viewership mark of 1.52 million. The previous original, which aired on March 18, scored a slightly stronger 0.7 rating with 1.53 million viewers.
The hit for The CW’s “Supernatural” was far more considerable. After culminating its March run with a 1.0 rating and 2.25 million viewers, the veteran returned for a 0.7 rating with 1.60 million viewers. Both represented season lows.
Despite the declines, both dramas, which have already been renewed for next year, continue to rank within the network’s top four properties.
