Roswell Ratings Improve
Roswell, The WB’s teen alien series, received its best ratings of the year on April 24, the second time it aired in its new Monday 9 p.m. time slot, the network reported. Roswell retained 81 percent of the audience from its lead-in, 7th Heaven, among adults 18-49 and 89 percent among adults 18-34.
Roswell built on its lead-in audience in two important categories: men 18-34 and men 18-49, The WB reported. Roswell had languished in the ratings in its original Wednesday 9 p.m. time slot before jumping to a new time this month.
The good ratings bode well for the freshman series as it enter its home stretch. Producers have been worrying about the show’s chances for renewal, though it has won critical acclaim and a modest but active fan following. The WB will announce its decision on the show in May.
