October 17, 2006 (Burbank, CA) - Since its launch, The CW has improved over The WB through the first four weeks of the season in the network's target demo of adults 18-34 (1.8/5, +13%) and women 18-34 (2.2/6, +10%). The CW mirrors The WB's scheduling model with 6 nights and 13 hours of primetime programming.

This week, three of The CW's series, "Gilmore Girls" "America's Next Top Model," and "One Tree Hill" climbed to reach new ratings highs this season in key demos, and "Smallville" and "Supernatural" also built over last week's delivery. (see nightly highlights below)

Through the CW's launch, series formerly on UPN have moved to a new local station in more than two-thirds of the U.S., while series formerly on The WB have transitioned to new stations in nearly one-third of the U.S.
