The CW – not doing as well as expected

Last night was not a good night for the new channel The CW, at 8pm, “7th Heaven” (which was renewed for a new season after being first cancelled) started the night with a 1.6 rating (compared to 3.4 for “Prison Break” and 3.2 for “How I Met Your Mother” and “The Class” combined.
At 9pm, The CW’s new show “Runaway” did not do good either with a rating of 0.7, compared to 5.9 for NBC’s “Heroes”.

Apart from its big beginning with “America’s Next Top Model”, the CW doesn’t seem to be able to compete with the other networks on Monday. Tonight might be another story though, as it is the return of “Gilmore Girls”. I am sure many fans (me including) will be tuning in tonight for the new adventures of Rory and Lorelai.

As for “Runaway”, don’t get attached to it, it might not be around for long, with “Heroes” as an opponent, it doesn’t stand a chance.
