“The 100” gave The CW a small upgrade with its season premiere Wednesday night, but it also came back lower. The show drew a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49, down from a 0.7 for last season’s premiere (which had a significantly bigger lead-in) and its 0.5 average for 2015-16. On the (small) upside, it improved on “Frequency’s” average by a tenth of a point. “Arrow” was even with last week’s 0.6.
FOX’s “Star” improved a little week to week, posting a 1.3 after two weeks at 1.2. The bump came despite a smaller lead-in from a new “Showtime at the Apollo” special (0.8).
“Hunted” matched its 1.3 from last week on CBS. “Criminal Minds” also earned a 1.3, off a tenth from its last episode. “Code Black” (1.1) rose 0.2 from last week. ABC and NBC were in reruns.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.2/5||1.0/4||1.0/4||1.0/4||0.5/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||6.55||4.58||3.73||3.63||1.61|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
