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.

    I’m not too surprised. I would call it I think a typical Arrow episode. Although it was nice to see Dinah in her own costume and see more of Black Siren and see their combat skills (as well as the rest of the team”s) put to use. Again many parts of this episode were predictable and again, a very typical. episode compared to many others in some ways. The thing with, Oliver and his son is different and could get interesting. But one thing I didn’t care for much in this episode is that things just kinda kept going back and forth. And what they did with Black Siren getting shot but then just walking it off. I don’t quite now what that was about. This episode had a couple ups, but overall this whole episode didn’t do to much for me. There is still more than plenty of time for the writers to start making the show better again.

    They’ve didn’t utilize the island explosions well in promo. They could’ve done way better think instead of promoting the same stuff over and over again.

    Not great ratings but I’ve always thought the ratings are what they are now, there won’t be any big change.I do think the promo was very poor this summer, however, and should have built up the cliffhanger rather than act like it never happened. But then CW promo department has been terrible for years.
