Riverdale |OT| Teen Peaks (or: Archie's Weirder Mysteries) - Thursday, 9/8c on The CW

The CW ratings are pretty awful. It's all about those secret Netflix numbers.

Most people I know (not comic book or CW folks by any stretch) are aware of the show or have seen it thanks to strong Netflix presence. Will be interesting if there's a similar effect after it hits US Netflix and whether an audience builds over hiatus.


Breaks are an unfortunate evil in television. Very hard to schedule an uninterrupted run without tripping over some holiday or event or whatever. For Riverdale if they could get like an 8/8 split like TWD that'd suit the show and Netflix nicely.
 
are we talking about nielsen rating? it only counts live tv? i guess if that's the case i'm not part of them as i watch it on cw site the next day. we just gotta post more pictures of betty and veronica during the break.

last time i checked its averaging about 2 million viewers after dvr and on demand viewing is included. which is about in line with other shows (i.e. half the audience never watches these things live)

personally i'm going to wait til the show is on netflix to check it out...too much other gaming and tv content to consume at the moment.

You're not part of the Nielsen ratings because you'd either have a box on your TV given to you by the Nielsen company or you'd be filling out a weekly journal of what you're watching for them.
 
Video is from next week's episode, but here's
Archie and Veronica performing Kids in America.

You can see the exact moment
Betty decides she's over Jughead, poor Jughead.
I can't wait for
Jughead's
reaction when he catches on. I predict it'll be something like this:

Maybe it's the sadist in me, but I'm really looking forward to that moment.

The almond milk in my fridge went bad from Betty's sour look. I didn't even know almond milk could go bad! Cheryl and Betty both look shook.

I think Detective Betty has just figured out Archie and Veronica hooked up by their stage chemistry. She's the Batman of Riverdale.
No idea why Cheryl cares.
 
Probably the story thread from the week before last where
Cheryl was supposedly hooking up with Archie and Archie rejected her. Guessing she's jealous like Betty.

Looking forward to next Thursday!
She looks kind of heartbroken even. Betty thinks she can still win while Cheryl knows she had lost.

No joke. I was five episodes in on netflix before I even knew this show was on tv.
I dont really watch any network TV though. I just happened to see a commercial for it while watching the news on KTLA one day.

Yeah, you're probably right.
Never considered her feelings might be genuine.

My prediction is Archie will go off with his mom to Chi-Raq for the summer. Probably more music opportunities there.

Killer Prediction: Ethel. Sometimes Polly sets off my alarm too. Redheads and Cooper Women are not to be trusted.

I mean she loss to v in the dance off. Now she sees her
singing

Just caught up. Molly Ringwald, eh. 80s poster girl of teen movies as the mom then. Would be interesting to know the casting story behind this. Interesting choice for sure.

Greg Berlanti's shows have been made such casting gags for years now. Dad Flash was the Flash, mom Supergirl was Supergirl, dad Supergirl was Superman, ...

Except Triss Merigold. I trust her with my life.

Some promising spoilers.

TVLine said:
PRE-FINALE:
Homecoming takes on a whole new meaning when Archie’s absent mom Mary (played by Molly Ringwald) returns to Riverdale. And she and her estranged husband Fred aren’t quite ready to finalize that divorce, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa hints: “The question of ‘Is she maybe going to rekindle with Fred?’ is definitely in play.” Fred and Archie aren’t the only ones happy to see her back in town, either: “It’s a good thing that Mary Andrews is a lawyer, because someone needs a lot of legal advice.” Plus, “there’s definitely more trouble” in store for teen lovebirds Betty and Jughead, with an event that “one of them considers a big betrayal.”

SEASON FINALE (MAY 11):
Riverdale isn’t making us wait for an answer to its season-long mystery. Aguirre-Sacasa says the reveal of who killed Jason Blossom will actually happen the week before the season finale, so the finale “can really focus on the relationships, once the mystery’s been solved.” That said, the killer’s identity “opens the door on a lot of new mysteries,” the EP teases, with the finale packing “a couple of cliffhangers that will give you a hint of what’s to come” in Season 2.
 
I'm catching up on this one and the character names are starting to stick, but I still can't get used to Betty and Jughead being together. Still, everything that is happening around the parents is super interesting.

Still have one more episode to go before I'm caught up.

Reggie is being recast for season 2 since the actor has commitments to 13 Reasons Why

http://tvline.com/2017/04/25/riverdale-reggie-recast-season-2-ross-butler-leaving/
Makes sense. Guess the actor wins either way. Both shows have cultivated themselves a very fervent young fanbase. That's good to have pushing your name for an up and coming actor. In premise, I don't know how much gas 13 Reason Why could possibly have in the tank but it'll lead to other roles. And there was so little Reggie in this season that it wouldn't be that jarring to have a new actor.
