Fueled by the season finale of America's Next Top Model
and season high ratings for One Tree Hill
, The CW saw its best night of ratings in its short-lived existence. America's Next Top Model
has proved to be the rookie network's go-to show, easily its highest ratings earner week in and week out. Now, however, with this cycle ending and the show not slated to reappear for a couple months, the CW will need to find its audience elsewhere.
That One Tree Hill
earned its highest ratings night of the year is no surprise. The teen drama was coming off its highly anticipated State Finals episode that left its audience with an almost unbearable cliffhanger. Hopefully, it can keep up this momentum even when it (momentarily) loses its Top Model
Another surprise of the night was King of Queens
conquering all with it's ninth season premiere. Airing back to back episodes, the Kevin James comedy was the highest rated program of the night. Granted, this was without the competition it can plan on facing in January.
