At 9:00p.m., The CW’s SUPERNATURAL scared up another strong performance, matching its best ratings of the season in adults 18-34 (1.4/4) and delivering its second largest audience of the season (2.9 million).

Squaring off against the “World Series” on Fox, The CW scored its best Thursday in more than 2 ½ years (best since March 2007) among adults 18-34 (1.9/5).  Last night marked The CW’s second best performance of the season in women 18-34 (2.2/6), adults 18-49 (1.7/4) and total viewers (3.5mil).
