The Carringtons may be back, but it seems they’re not bigger than ever. The CW is moving its Dynasty TV show reboot from Wednesdays to Friday nights. It will take over the slot currently filled by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, after the comedy finishes its third season run. Look for season one of Dynasty on Fridays, beginning March 9, 2018 at 8:00pm.
A CW drama, Dynasty stars Grant Show, Alan Dale, Elizabeth Gillies, Nathalie Kelley, Nicollette Sheridan, James Mackay, Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley, Rafael de la Fuente, Brianna Brown, and Nick Wechsler. The primetime soap opera follows the wealthy Carrington family as they tangle with the Colbys and other business rivals. The series is a more diverse remake of the 1980s ABC sudser, starring John Forsythe, Linda Evans, and Joan Collins.
Dynasty, which had been following season two of Riverdale on Wednesdays, will be replaced by the new comedy TV series, Life Sentence. On Fridays, Dynasty will anchor the night and will be followed by Jane the Virgin, until season four wraps. Beginning April 20th, Dynasty will lead into the fifth and final season of The Originals, a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries, which ended its eight season run in 2017.
Dynasty: A Look at the Ratings
The first season of Dynasty is averaging a 0.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 773,000 viewers. Of the 10 CW TV shows we’re currently tracking, that demo number means Dynasty is tied for last place with Valor and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. In terms of total audience size, it’s ranked seventh out of 10. Don’t be surprised if The CW cancels Dynasty after its first season. If it manages to eke out a renewal thanks to its overseas profits, there could be some major changes next year, to shake things up.
