Overnight ratings report for the Arrow season premiere titled "Fallout" Arrow “Fallout” Overnight Ratings Report

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.
