Last night's series premiere of PENN & TELLER: FOOL US was The CW's second most watched (1.76M) summer series premiere ever, behind just last year's debut of WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? on 7/16/13.

 

PENN & TELLER also delivered The CW’s third most watched telecast of this summer (behind only WHOSE LINE on 6/9/14 and 6/20/14).

 

Last night was The CW's best delivery in the Wednesday 8PM time period since the finale of Arrow on 5/14/14 in total viewers, W18-34 (0.4/2) and W18-49 (0.5/2), and since 6/4/14 in A18-34 (0.4/2) and A18-49 (0.5/2).

 

The premiere delivered dramatic gains for The CW for the night, with the network's Wednesday night up 62% week to week in total viewers (1.15M) and up 50% in A18-34 and A18-49. The CW's Wednesday night was also up 35% over the same week last year in total viewers, and up 50% in A18-34 and A18-49.
