"iZombie" Debut Episode Earns Solid Ratings

Variety has a rundown of last night's ratings, which saw the CW's all DC lineup -- "The Flash" and newcomer "iZombie" -- come in second amongst adults age 18-49, beating out ABC, CBS, Fox and Univision. NBC won the night with "The Voice" and a pair of comedy premieres -- "One Big Happy" and the returning "Undateable."

The premiere of "iZombie," a TV series loosely adapted from the Vertigo series by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred, averaged a 0.9/3 in the 18-49 demo and was watched by 2.3 million viewers overall. Pairing the show with another comic book series, "The Flash," proved to be a solid move for the network as "iZombie" retained 75% of its lead-in's audience. Variety notes that "iZombie" performed better in the ratings than the last four "Supernatural" episodes that followed "Flash."

The pivotal "Flash" episode, which has been recapped over on Spinoff, was seen by 3.6 million viewers, making it the lowest rated episode -- but just barely --since the show's return in January.
