'Riverdale' Doubles Viewers With Season 2 Premiere

Riverdale just blasted through the ratings on the second season premiere.

Instead of the show coming back with fewer viewers, which does happen with sophomore seasons, it DOUBLED THEM!

The series — which stars KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Madelaine Petsch, Camila Mendes, Casey Cott and Ashleigh Murray — came back on Wednesday night and drew 2.3 million same-day viewers.

That’s insane and it also doubles the viewers it had during the season one finale.

We’re pretty sure a record was broken too, because it was the best teen ratings for any telecast since an episode of The Vampire Diaries back in 2012. That’s FIVE YEARS AGO.

Among millennial and Gen-Z women, Riverdale also tied or beat every show on ABC, CBS, or NBC Wednesday, finishing behind only Fox’s Empire and Star.
