The CW 2018 Upfront Impact Report
May 16, 2018
The CW, known for airing shows typically classified as “teen dramas,” draws in an audience that falls mainly into the Made It & Know It persona. The network’s top rated shows during the 2016-2017 TV season were The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. While The Flash also made the top three for most engaged series since May 2017, second place went to long-running drama Supernatural, and the most engaged show was Riverdale, which credits Netflix streaming for a surge in popularity heading into the show’s just-wrapped second season.
