Here are the same-day, Live +3 and Live +7 adults 18-49 ratings for every show that aired on The CW in the 2016-17 season. Same-day ratings are for all new episodes aired in-season (Sept. 19, 2016-May 24, 2017), including those coded as specials. DVR ratings may not include episodes coded as specials. Summer shows that aired one or two episodes in season aren’t included.
Highest-rated show: “The Flash” was the only CW show to average a 1.0 or better in adults 18-49 the night it aired. It remained that way in the DVR rankings, improving to 1.6 after three days and 1.9 after seven.
Biggest rise in the rankings: “Jane the Virgin,” “iZombie” and “Reign” all rose two two spots from the initial ratings to Live +3 and stayed in the same spots in the Live +7 rankings. “The Originals” also improved by two places in Live +3 but gave back the gains in Live +7.
Biggest fall: “The 100” (sixth to 11th) and “No Tomorrow” (ninth to 14th) both lost five places going from same-day to Live +3. “The 100” moved up one spot in Live +7, while “No Tomorrow” remained in the cellar.
