So, how did Arrow do in its first episode on Thursday nights?
The initial overnight ratings for the season premiere “Fallout” show Arrow at a 0.6/2 in the Ages 18-49 demographic, down from last year’s premiere but even with most of last season’s average. The show had 1.57 million viewers. It should be noted that this is a considerable improvement for the post-Supernatural slot vs. this time in the Spring, where Riverdale was pulling closer to a 0.4 and 1 million viewers. Conversely, Riverdale seems to be doing very well in Arrow’s old slot, showing this schedule change might have been a good thing.
Final numbers can and will go up once DVR and other things are factored in.
