The two quality dramas combined to equal the best Thursday night rating ever for The WB among men 18-49 (1.9/5) and scored its highest total viewer number (4.7 million) since October 2001. The WB Thursday also delivered its best ratings since January 2003 in adults 18-34 (2.2/6), men 18-34 (2.2/7) and all 18-49 demos � adults (2.0/5), women (2.0/5) and men (1.9/5).
