The show premiered from October 16, 2001 to May 11, 2006 with 110 episodes from the first season with "Pilot" to the fifth season's finale, "Vessel".

After Season 5, the WB and CBS merged to form The CW, which was the second broadcaster for the show.

Smallville's first episode, "Pilot" earned the broadcaster it's highest ever pilot ratings with 8.4 million viewers.
