One Tree Hill – When One Tree Hill ends later this season, it’ll amazingly leave behind at most one other scripted show that existed before the WB/UPN merger. Even in its last couple years of decline, it’s still been a pretty competitive show on the CW spectrum. And at least on premiere night for the final season, that remains the case. OTH returned to 1.72 million viewers and a 0.9 demo, which was down from last season’s premiere (2.14 million, 1.1 demo) and about where the show was at this time last year (its midseason return got 1.89 million and a 0.9 last year on January 25). The show may be on its way out, but a 0.9 is a really good number for its network right now. It exceeds recent results from all CW scripted shows not named The Vampire Diaries. The only thing is that I doubt that number will hold up in the short term, as American Idol invades the TV landscape next week.
