Congratulations are in order for the new hit series, ‘Black Lightning’. On Tuesday, it premiered bringing in impressive numbers. They snagged 2.31 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Those numbers are the highest for any non-crossover episode of TV in the 9pm Tuesday night slot this season.
This marks the biggest success The CW has had at that time in quite a while. In fact, it was the most-watched series premiere for The CW since Legends of Tomorrow hauled in 3.2 million a couple of years ago.
