Overnight ratings report for the Arrow episode "Irreconcilable Differences." Arrow: Overnight Ratings For “Irreconcilable Differences”

Maybe airing episodes in December isn’t so much of a good thing?

Both Supernatural and Arrow posted lower-than-usual numbers for their midseason finales last night, with Arrow’s “Irreconcilable Differences” posting a 0.4/2 in the Ages 18-49 demo and only 1.33 million viewers. The demo is one of Arrow’s lowest totals in the show’s history; the 1.33 million puts “Irreconcilable Differences” in the middle of the ratings pack, total viewers-wise, with the season’s first three episodes and crossover installment posting higher.

    This episode didn’t really do anything for me. I’m actually surprised that the viewership is that high. But it seems about consistent with earlier this season. This is just my opinion though, that everything was just falling apart with the team which I did not like, but I think it might have been expected to happen at some point. The only thing I felt this episode showed was of how many villains there was this season, and it does not surprise me that the vigilante was one of them and Antonoly was another. I really don’t have much hope for the remainder of this season when it returns next year. These villains just don’t seem as threatening as the past villains have been. We’ll see.

    I know people have different opinions on all aspects of Arrow, but the villain clips for episode 10, with Michael Emerson. I think the villi nous factor is going to heat up with his character. He’s good at playing a villain – his days from Lost. And just looking at his face from the clip, he looks menacing. I know some people didn’t like the supernatural element in season 4, But McDonough was perfect in the role of the villain. He’s a great actor and very effective/skilled at playing bad guys. My favorite villains are season 2 and 4. And for season 1, Oliver was his own worst enemy, because he was battling himself. His guilt, insecurities, coming into his own, etc.
