Overnight ratings were up last night for the Arrow episode “The Odyssey,” rewarding the show for one of its best outings.
The episode had 3.26 million viewers and a 1.1/3 in the target demographic. It even beat NBC’s Guys With Kids.
From a CW press release:
On the heels of both series’ early renewals for next season, ARROW and SUPERNATURAL both rose versus last week, and SPN had its second most watched episode of the season (2.5M). It was SPN’s most watched episode since 10/10/12.
ARROW had its most watched episode (3.3M) since 12/5/12, and rose a tenth week to week in A18-34 and A18-49. ARROW matched a series high in M18-34 (1.2/5, best since 10/17/12).
SUPERNATURAL hit a season high among M18-34 (1.1/4). It rose 8% versus last week’s episode in total viewers, and was steady versus last week in A18-34 and A18-49.
For the night, The CW averaged 2.9 million viewers, the best since 11/28/12. The 18-34 demos were the best since 11/14/12.
Perhaps there’s a lesson to be learned from this, that Slade Wilson and Felicity Smoak are good things?
