The CW’s two freshmen fall dramas have aced their first tests. On Friday, October 25, the network ordered nine additional episodes to both Batwoman and Nancy Drew, bringing both dramas’ season one totals to 22 episodes.
Batwoman currently holds the title as the CW’s most watched program, averaging a total of 1.5 million viewers and a demo rating nearing 0.4. Nancy Drew is averaging a total of 930,000 viewers with a demo rating just above 0.2.
Starting this season, the CW has full in-season streaming rights to all new series. Batwoman and Nancy Drew are the first two shows to benefit from that. In previous years, current season episodes would be removed from the CW’s streaming platform after six weeks. Now, viewers will have a chance to catch up on the full seasons at anytime during the 2019-2020 broadcast season.
You can catch new episodes of Batwoman Sundays at 8 p.m EST. Nancy Drew airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m EST.
