The record was previously held by DC Legends of Tomorrow, which debuted in 2016.

“With its 2.43 million viewers, Walker also pulled in the largest audience of any premiere on the network since The Flash‘s season 4 debut in 2017,” the outlet added.

“Standing in Supernatural‘s old time slot, Walker scored the CW’s best total viewership in the Thursday 8 p.m. time period since 2016. And with the Legacies season 3 premiere following in the 9 p.m. slot, the CW landed its most-watched Thursday in almost three years. (It also marked Legacies‘ best total audience in nearly a year.) Walker goes down as the single most-watched episode of any show on the CW network since Jan. 1, 2018.”

If you didn’t know, the show is actually a reboot of the Chuck Norris-led Walker, Texas Ranger. In the new show, Jared plays Cordell Walker, who grieves the recent loss of his wife while balancing his duties as a father and a Ranger.

Jared Padalecki‘s real-life wife Genevieve Padalecki is playing his character’s late wife on the show. See photos of them through the years!
