The CW Network has announced Smallville has been renewed for a tenth season. While most assumed the move to Friday night’s would finally put the nail in the coffin, the show is #1 in its time period among men 18-34 and men 18-49. Also, Smallville has dramatically improved The CW’s ratings in its Friday 8:00-9:00p.m.time period by 67% among adults 18-34 (1.5/6), 200% in men 18-34 (1.8/7), 75% in adults 18-49 (1.4/5), 183% in men 18-49 (1.7/6) and 74% in total viewers (3.12million).
While most networks continue to hemorrhage viewers on Friday nights, The CW has found a show that has people tuning in. It’s no surprise Smallville is coming back. The big question is…will this be the final season? While I would like to say yes, with these ratings, the show might still have a few years left in it. Who knew.
