Variety reports that Riverdale returned last night with all-time series highs in both the key demo and total viewers.
The second season of Riverdale premiered on its new Wednesday timeslot night with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.3 million viewers. Up just under 60% in the key demo and over 60% in total viewers compared to January’s series premiere, these numbers have earned the season 2 premiere the title of the highest-rated and most-watched episode of the show to date. The season 2 opener also doubled the demo rating and more than doubled the audience numbers of the first season finale.
Riverdale continues next week with the episode titled “Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks.”
SAVING POP’S – With the gunman still at large and the residents of Riverdale on edge, Betty (Lili Reinhart) leads the charge to save Pop’s after learning that the diner may be forced to close its doors forever. Meanwhile, the gang becomes increasingly concerned for Archie’s (KJ Apa) well being after noticing a string of unusual behavior from him. Elsewhere, Betty and Veronica (Camila Mendes) approach Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) and Josie (Ashleigh Murray) for their help saving Pop’s, while Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) attempt to find FP (Skeet Ulrich) a new lawyer may have some serious repercussions. Finally, when a past betrayal unexpectedly comes to light, Veronica finds herself at a crossroads with Hiram (Mark Consuelos) and Hermoine (Marisol Nichols.) Allison Anders directed the episode written by Michael Grassi (#202.) Original airdate 10/18/2017.
Riverdale airs on Wednesday at 8:00 pm ET on The CW.
